Known for his good looks, affable personality, and natural ability to make people laugh, comedic actor Paul Rudd, who has starred in the movies Knocked Up, Role Models, This Is 40, and Clueless, reportedly quit smoking with the help of the Kerry Gaynor method, a hypnotherapy-based smoking cessation program developed by the Los Angeles hypnotherapist Kerry Gaynor.
Many models smoke to maintain their slim figures (smoking blunts the appetite by damaging taste buds), as well as to pass the time backstage at fashion shows, and Brazilian bombshell Gisele Bündchen was one of them. Citing a desire to be healthier, the Victoria’s Secret beauty, wife of NFL quarterback Tom Brady, and mother of two gave up her habit in 2003 and didn’t obsess about the weight gain that followed. “When I quit smoking, I gained 15 pounds,” she told People magazine. “So? I prefer myself this way. Nothing is worth your health.”
