LOL so true. I know he did smoke a pipe for awhile cause he thought it was better for him or something and he did used to smoke. But I do wonder if he picks up again every now and again cause several of the women he has dated have been smokers.

There are different stories. Some say that George has never smoked because he saw what it did to family members who smoked, plus he worked picking tobacco when he was young.

Steven Soderbergh says that his character in Out of Sight was meant to be a smoker but they changed it because George had quit and didn't want to smoke onscreen. He also says that that thing George does with the cigarette lighter in Out of Sight was written into the film because Steven had seen George do that in real life.

George has (had?) a pipe collection in his house.

I read somewhere years ago that he said he was a social smoker. Smoking when you drink or party with people. I knew a lot of people like that, but not as popular today. Probably doesn't now though. I remembered it, because never heard of any famous person admitting that, and he did.

There are pics of him out and about with Randi and Gio in Como, they are at a local restaurant sitting outside and yes George has a cig. From the looks of the pics They were drinking and George was entertaining everyone. So I'd say yes he use to smoke socially when drinking, but believe he has stopped. This was during the time right before SL years, probably the last time KA got invited to Como.

I thought it was funny in The Good German when he carried around a lit ciggy, but I don't recall him ever taking a drag of it. Wondered about it at the time. I do have a pic in my library of him smoking, and I will look for it this weekend. Remember when he was trying to light the joint in ER when the kid came and pounded on his window and he dropped it before going out to save the other kid?

I read in an interview that George has given up smoking when his uncle George died of lung cancer.

Reminds me of that old joke: says a man to his new girlfriend: "do you smoke after sex?"

The girlfriend says: "I don't know, I've never looked"

Not to say the smokers are bad people but too many do not realize how truly awful they smell, their clothes smell and often their cars and homes smell.  They lose their sense of smell and don't realize how really bad it is.

I have a co-worker who smokes and every time I have to go into a meeting with him I have trouble breathing!  So I sure hope George doesn't smoke!  There are a lot of celebs who do smoke but who don't want to be caught in a photo smoking.  I think Jen Aniston is one of those smokers.  Doesn't seem to go so well with her "healthy living" persona.

So far as I know, George doesn't smoke.  

Two (conflicting stories): George says he's never smoked because he hated picking tobacco when he was young and also saw the damage it did to his family members who smoked.

However, he did smoke a pipe when he was younger.

And Steven Soderbergh said that when he was making Out of Sight, George's character was a smoker but George had just quit and asked not to have to smoke on screen.  Hence the cigarette lighter trick he does in the bar.

Here's a transcript from an interview with Larry King.  It's kind of long but if you keep reading he denies ever smoking.

The excerpt about the smoking from TNMC link above:

"KING: What were you good at in the menial area?

CLOONEY: I was good at cutting tobacco. I was fast.

KING: Oh, you were in Kentucky?

CLOONEY: In Kentucky, sure. That was -- that's a miserable job by the way.

KING: Cutting tobacco.

CLOONEY: Sure, housing it, stripping it, cutting it, topping it, you know, all of it it's a miserable job.

KING: Did you smoke?

CLOONEY: No, I never was. You know everybody in my family except for my father really but my parents don't smoke but I had...

KING: Rosie smoked.

CLOONEY: Yes and I had eight, nine great uncles and aunts all of whom died between like 60 and 70 from smoking, yes, so I didn't really have a great interest in smoking."

You're welcome Nicky. I did read the whole thing, but since this is the smoking thread, just copied that.
