They Don’t Make Men Like They Used To

Gary Oldman has revealed that he gave himself “serious nicotine poisoning” after smoking nearly $20,000 (£14,800) worth of cigars during filming of his new Winston Churchill biopic film. …

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Oldman revealed that he made himself ill after smoking 400 cigars over the course of a 48-day shoot.

“I got serious nicotine poisoning,” he said. “You’d have a cigar that was three-quarters smoked and you’d light it up, and then over the course of a couple of takes, it would go down, and then the prop man would replenish me with a new cigar — we were doing that for 10 or 12 takes a scene.”

Director Wright, however, said that the price was worth paying, adding: “It’s Winston Churchill. You can’t have Winston Churchill without a cigar.”

Took me only one cigar at about age 12 to cure me from smoking the rest of my life.

Same some for the upcoming Monica Lewinsky film.

from reading bios it seems winston was actually moderate in drinking and smoking just fairly continuous;starting the day with a weak whisky and soda seems just fine and three to four cigars a day is nobodies idea of excess.
