Debi Mazar: ‘I’m So Busted!’ Big-Tobacco Whistleblower of ‘The Insider’ Fame Chides Flick's Star for Smoking

“Having played one of the '60 Minutes' producers who helped bust Big Tobacco in 'The Insider,' Debi Mazar was red-faced this week after the film’s real-life hero dressed her down for lighting up.” That’s the word from the New York Post’s Page Six column. “During a live interview on BlogTalkRadio, host Olivia Wilder asked Mazar, ‘Are you a smoker?’ ‘I don't have to answer that question. It's irrelevant,’ the actress replied,” continues the report.

“In the next breath, however, she admitted, ‘I smoke from time to time but I got the facts and I don’t smoke in front of my children. I quit and then I start. I quit and then I start. Right now, I’m somewhere in between.’”

Unfortunately for Debi, Jeffrey Wigand – the fired Brown & Williamson veep who in 1995 blew the whistle on the company for making its cigarettes more addictive by adding a cancer-causing agent – was listening and called the show. “You still smoking?” Jeffrey (who was played by Russell Crowe in the 1999 flick) asked Debi. “I’m so busted! I’m having a little bit here and there, yes. Is this a smoking intervention?” she said, later adding, “I’ve had two kids. After the breast milk dries up if [cigarettes] are sitting around, it’s very tempting.”

Jeffrey’s final warning? “Stick around for your grandkids!”
