Jennifer Lopez Loves Cigars, Too!
Jennifer Lopez has been caught “smoking” more than a few times in her lifetime. But when it comes to smoking, does Jennifer Lopez love cigars? The answer is a resounding, “Yes!” Jennifer Lopez has been smoking cigars ever since she graced our television sets in the early nineties as a Fly Girl on “In Living Color.” Don’t try telling this action star that cigars are for guys only, or she might just drop kick you. If one thing is certain, the cigars certainly have not slowed her down!
Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are Smoking!
It doesn’t hurt when you’re a cigar lover whose fiance happens to be power hitter Alex Rodriguez, either. Alex is a well-known cigar aficionado. He told the story about enjoying his favorite cigar at 5 a.m. with several other New York Yankees. It happened outside of a pizza shop the morning after they won the World Series. Jennifer Lopez and Rodriguez are a power couple who’s been photographed frequently smoking their favorite brands. Jennifer Lopez tends to favor Padron. Meanwhile, Alex is quick to point out his love of Hoyo De Monterrey, the first cigar he ever smoked. It was introduced to him by none other than Michael Jordan during a round of golf.
Jennifer Lopez on Cigars and a Healthy Lifestyle
The eternally young Jennifer Lopez remains one of the hardest working stars in Hollywood. Besides movies and being a judge on a television dance show, she maintains a grueling live concert show in Vegas that is heavy on the dancing. She credits her biggest beauty secret to staying young with getting sleep. “It’s the one thing I won’t allow to be interrupted.” In her most recent film, “Hustlers”, she was forced to endure long hours on the set smoking cigarettes (as part of her character, Ramona). It was a habit that started and ended with the movie. She likes her cigars and refused to let the cigarettes become a bad habit!
Jennifer Lopez’s Island Connection
In the video to the song, “Dinero,” both Jennifer Lopez and Cardi B can be seen living the high life, while liberally enjoying trophy cigars. Although both Bronx, New York natives, they share traditional island routes from their families. Jennifer Lopez’s parents are from Puerto Rico, while Cardi B’s family is from Trinidad and the Dominican Republic. Both singers made it clear that the cigars were not simply part of the video as props. “Cigars are a part of the Latino blood. It’s what families do together after big meals.” The two divas shared plenty of cigars on and off the set!
Still Jenny From the Block
Jennifer Lopez spends plenty of time traveling between homes in Miami, Vegas stage shows, and while visiting friends in her old Bronx neighborhood. She always travels with a humidor full of a few of her favorite Padrons to share with friends along the way. Sharing a cigar with a friend is one of the best things about spending uninterrupted time together. “Even with the crazy schedule I have, a cigar lets me slow it down every now and then. I can reflect on what’s important,” says Lopez. That’s a lot easier said than done when you are talking about one of the most photographed couples out there!
