Objective. Regional studies have linked exposure to movie smoking with adolescent smoking. We examined this association in a representative US sample. Design/Methods. We conducted a random-digit-dial survey of 6522 US adolescents aged 10 to 14 years. Using previously validated methods, we estimated exposure to movie smoking, in 532 recent box-office hits, and examined its relation with adolescents having ever tried smoking a cigarette. Results. The distributions of demographics and census… Expand

Exposure to smoking in popular contemporary movies and youth smoking in Germany.
TLDR
The need for prospective studies of this association in countries other than the U.S. and research into the potential impact of countrywide policies that would limit exposure of young adolescents to movie smoking are suggested. Expand
Exposure to Movie Smoking Among US Adolescents Aged 10 to 14 Years: A Population Estimate
TLDR
Popular movies deliver billions of smoking images and character smoking depictions to young US adolescents, but the popular actors who frequently smoke in movies could have a major impact on adolescent movie smoking exposure by choosing not to portray characters who smoke. Expand
Smoking in movies and adolescent smoking initiation: longitudinal study in six European countries.
TLDR
Seeing smoking in movies is a predictor of smoking onset in various cultural contexts and the results confirm that limiting young people's exposure to movie smoking might be an effective way to decrease adolescent smoking onset. Expand
Exposure to smoking depictions in movies: its association with established adolescent smoking.
TLDR
In this national US adolescent sample, exposure to smoking in movies predicted risk of becoming an established smoker, an outcome linked with adult dependent smoking and its associated morbidity and mortality. Expand
Movie Character Smoking and Adolescent Smoking: Who Matters More, Good Guys or Bad Guys?
TLDR
Character smoking predicts adolescent smoking initiation regardless of character type, which demonstrates the importance of limiting exposure to all movie smoking. Expand
When Movies Matter: Exposure to Smoking in Movies and Changes in Smoking Behavior
TLDR
The authors concluded that the effect of exposure to mass-mediated images of smoking in movies may decline once adolescents have started to smoke, whereas peers and access to tobacco remain influential. Expand
Who is most susceptible to movie smoking effects? Exploring the impacts of race and socio-economic status.
TLDR
Exposure to film smoking is not experienced uniformly as a risk factor for having ever tried smoking among US adolescents, and Whites and Hispanics are more likely to try smoking as a function of increased exposure to movie smoking. Expand
Smoking in Movies and Adolescent Smoking Initiation: A Longitudinal Study among Argentinian Adolescents
TLDR
In Argentina, exposure to smoking in the movies predicted future smoking transitions among early adolescents, with most exposure coming from viewing US movies. Expand
Early Exposure to Movie Smoking Predicts Established Smoking by Older Teens and Young Adults
TLDR
Movie smoking exposure significantly predicted progression to established smoking in long-term follow-up in older teens and young adults, and was twice as likely to be established smokers at follow- up compared with those in the lowest quartile. Expand
Longitudinal Study of Viewing Smoking in Movies and Initiation of Smoking by Children
TLDR
It is indicated that early exposure has as much influence on smoking risk as does exposure nearer the outcome, and movie smoking may be responsible for at least one third of smoking initiation for children in this age group. Expand

Effect of viewing smoking in movies on adolescent smoking initiation: a cohort study
TLDR
Evidence is provided that viewing smoking in movies promotes smoking initiation among adolescents, and the effect of exposure to movie smoking was stronger in adolescents with non-smoking parents than in those whose parent smoked. Expand
Modifying exposure to smoking depicted in movies: a novel approach to preventing adolescent smoking.
TLDR
Teaching parents to monitor and enforce movie access guidelines could reduce adolescent smoking in an indirect, yet powerful, manner. Expand
Relation between parental restrictions on movies and adolescent use of tobacco and alcohol.
TLDR
Limiting the exposure of adolescents to R-rated movies may prevent early use of alcohol and tobacco and to determine whether such restrictions are associated with decreased tobacco and alcohol use in adolescents. Expand
Effect of seeing tobacco use in films on trying smoking among adolescents: cross sectional study
TLDR
There was a strong, direct, and independent association between seeing tobacco use in films and trying cigarettes, a finding that supports the hypothesis that smoking in films has a role in the initiation of smoking in adolescents. Expand
Viewing tobacco use in movies: does it shape attitudes that mediate adolescent smoking?
TLDR
There is empirical evidence that viewing movie depictions of tobacco use is associated with higher receptivity to smoking prior to trying the behavior, and higher exposure to tobacco use in movies significantly increased the number of positive expectations endorsed by the adolescent and the perception that most adults smoke, but not the perception of most peers smoke.

Favourite movie stars, their tobacco use in contemporary movies, and its association with adolescent smoking
TLDR
Adolescents who choose movie stars who use tobacco on-screen are significantly more likely to have an advanced smoking status and more favourable attitudes toward smoking than adolescents who choose non-smoking stars. Expand
Do movie stars encourage adolescents to start smoking? Evidence from California.
TLDR
Preliminary evidence that stars who smoke on and off screen may encourage youth to smoke is provided, suggesting that exposure to friends and family who smoke should be considered before deciding whether to smoke. Expand
Do favorite movie stars influence adolescent smoking initiation?
TLDR
Public health efforts to reduce adolescent smoking must confront smoking in films as a tobacco marketing strategy. Expand
Predictors of smoking cessation in adolescents.
TLDR
Adolescents who are less addicted, measured by low frequency of cigarette use, are more likely than daily users to quit, but only among occasional smokers, and Pediatricians should focus on keeping occasional smokers from moving into daily smoking status. Expand
Tobacco industry promotion of cigarettes and adolescent smoking.
TLDR
These findings provide the first longitudinal evidence to the authors' knowledge that tobacco promotional activities are causally related to the onset of smoking. Expand
