Hi,
I was going through an old thread on the most famous pipe smokers and all of them are now deceased. Anyone familiar with any currently famous pipe smokers? I can't think of any. Can you? Thanks

The guy who plays Joffrey Baratheon, the young, wicked prince from Game of Thrones is sometimes pictured with a pipe. A Peterson, I believe.

I am famous and I smoke a pipe. What makes me famous you ask? When I type my name and do a google search, I am the only name that comes out. In the entire google universe, my name is unique.

There are a few. Santa Claus, Popeye, Frosty the Snowman, and actress Eva Green and actor Arnold Schwarzenegger both claim to smoke pipes from time to time. Don't forget podcast guru Brian Levine and Kevin Godbee, inventor of pipesmagazine.com. Oh, and Jiminks, of course.

My wife and I were extras on Chicago Fire S2 E07 "No Regrets". They filmed about 10 minutes from our house at the Illinois Railway Museum. We were injured passengers on a train...you can spot us several times during the episode. That's my claim to fame.

I assume there is a list of celebrities, probably both men and women, who enjoy smoking a pipe, but almost no one wants to be associated with the health controversy so they leave the pipe home when they go to photo shoots, broadcasting gigs, or any public events. No one wants to be stereotyped as the children's health hazard. Haven't I seen a photo of Tom Hanks smoking a pipe, or am I misremembering. When caught, it is easy enough to say, oops, that was my annual bowl. Then there is another cadre of celeb's, like maybe Keith Richards, who would never want to be associated with anything so homey as pipe smoking. That would kill a rapper's street cred pronto.

Stephen Fry is a pipe smoker. He can be seen smoking in Gosford Park, but it's apparently not just a prop. I'm given to understand he smokes in real life, too.

Stephen Fry quit years ago, he was a great ambassador of pipe smoking for ages, but he no longer smokes is my understanding.

Stephen Fry was a cigarette smoker who only occasionally packed a bowl. He has made some fun of the fact he was elected pipe smoker of the year in England, when he really wasn't.

Someone famous could "do" the pipe smoker, giving complete information on pipe brands and shapes and specific blends. It would be a mark of individualism and maybe a dusting of the intellectual/professorial.
