Leonardo DiCaprio Will NOT Be Allowed To Vape At The Oscars After Getting Heat For The Habit At The SAG Awards!

no title

Leonardo DiCaprio may have won a SAG Award on Saturday, but he also got some negative attention from the American Lung Association!

The Revenant star was smoking an e-cigarette at his table — right in the middle of the televised ceremony!

The ALA called Leo out for his "deeply troubling" conduct — noting that vape pens expose others to secondhand toxins. Also, it's illegal to smoke vape pens in restaurants, bars, and other public places in El Lay.

While the SAGs didn't seem to care about a few puffs, the actor will reportedly run into a problem if he takes out his vape pen at the Oscars!

Hollywood's famous Dolby Theatre, where the 88th Academy Awards will be held, has a strict no-smoking policy — which includes vaping!

If the 41-year-old does want to light up in celebration after winning (or out of defeat after losing), he is welcome to vape all he wants in one of the designated smoking sections set up by the theater.

Just no puffing at the table, Leo!

25 Most Polluted Cities Have Cleaner Air Than Last Year!

Filed under: Environment

Los Angeles Smog

Good news! The U.S. Clean Air Act is working!

The "State of the Air 2011" report from the American Lung Association concluded that the air in the nation's 25 smoggiest cities has improved over the last year.

Lung Association President, Charles Connor, said in a statement:

"The progress the nation has made cleaning up coal-fired power plants, diesel emissions and other pollution sources has drastically cut dangerous pollution from the air we breathe."

While it looks like the air is getting cleaner, the report unfortunately still found 154.4 million people (over half the nation's population) live in areas where the air is filled with dangerous levels of ozone and particle pollution.

Yikes! That's not good!

The two cleanest cities were found to be Honolulu, Hawaii and Santa Fe, New Mexico. The most polluted was, you guessed it, El Lay, baby! Ha!

Darn.
