If Neuron Magazine (and its audience) has one thing in common is that the celebrities are able to live their lives. They don’t cut corners when they’re enjoying the most basic pleasures. Cigars aren’t any exception. They’re more nuanced complex, sophisticated, and classier than marijuana and cigarettes. They also look better. Cigars are synonymous for elegance and luxury, which makes them the ideal way to end a long day or celebrate an accomplishment. We take a look at some of the most famous cigar-smoking celebrities to see which stogies are their top picks.
Shawn “Jay-z” Carter has been one of the most influential rappers in hip-hop history. Although most people think of that the Brooklyn rapper to be the most influential, he has been criticised for not releasing music in the past few time. The rapper released his most recent album, “4:44”, in 2017. He also released “Everything is Love,” in 2018 with Beyonce as his co-producer. Instead, he has pursued a more active approach in his pursuit to be one of rap’s most prominent business moguls. He was part of the Brooklyn Nets’ ownership at some point, and later established Roc Nation Music in 2008 and created Roc Nation Sports as a division for sports agencies.
It is logical that there are good reasons to enjoy a moment of relaxation and celebration in all the business ventures. Jay-Z has spoken out about his love for big Cuban cigars like Montecristos and Ramon Allones. Jay-Z also loves the occasional English Dunhill (RIP). He also has teamed up with Cohiba Cigars to release an exclusive cigar called Comador in 2013.
The Governor is a poster “man” of several things including bodybuilding, action film celebrity, overall machismo and enjoying cigars in fashion. Schwarzenegger is an infamous icon of cigars. He was the cover model of the Cigar Afioncado magazine’s 1992 issue. In his debut issue, he outlined the things he enjoys about his cigars, and also noted that Montecristo No. 2 was his first cigar.
“I smoked little Virginians when I went to Munich as a bodybuilder,” he says, “but I didn’t smoke a real cigar until 1977 when I met Maria [Shriver].”
He continues to smoke cigarettes each day. Schwarzenegger declared that his tastes have changed in the 2019 interview. Schwarzenegger prefers smaller cigars, and his current choice is the Partagas Serie D. 4. Schwarzenegger has also widened his sphere to include Fuente Fuente OpusX from the Dominican Republic.”
McConaughey is one of the most prominent actors in Hollywood. McConaughey has earned a reputable reputation for his romcom performances and has managed to break the mold with his performance in “True Detective”, “Interstellar” and “The Dallas Buyers Club,” in which he won the Best Actor Oscar. He’s built a successful career out of rom-coms and has released “Greenlights,” a memoir, in 2020.
Since he began to make his way into more dramatic movies, McConaughey has built a more solid image of himself. Since 2016 McConaughey has been Wild Turkey Bourbon’s creative director. He also has two Cigar Aficionado covers. In his 2018 interview, McConaughey smoked large maduro-wrapped cigars while filming Harmony Korine’s “The Beach Bum.” On set, the actor reveals that he prefers to smoke at the golf course and prefers to smoke moderate-sized Romeo y Julieta cigars.
