Jennifer Lopez Lights Up

Jennifer Lopez's claim to live a clean-cut lifestyle has been called into question after she was recently photographed smoking a cigarette.

The Maid in Manhattan actress has spoken about her decision to turn her back on unhealthy vices in a number of interviews.

She has said. "I don't smoke or drink. When I was little, my mother drummed it into me how bad it is for you, and it stuck somehow...

"I envy people who have releases. They just have a drink or a cigarette and they feel better."

But Lopez appears to have nobody to envy anymore—on Dec. 6, after shooting scenes for her movie El Cantante in a New York City graveyard, she was snapped puffing away.

The famous anti-smoker, who famously forced ex-fiancée Ben Affleck to give up his bad habit, seemed to be sneaking a cigarette when she was caught on camera by eagle-eyed fans, who have sold pictures of the puffing diva to America's top tabloids.

But the actress/singer's publicists insist Lopez hasn't started smoking—she’s just getting used to the herbal cigarettes her character has to smoke in the biopic of Hector Lavoe, which also stars her husband Marc Anthony.

A spokesman for Lopez insists, "It's not a real cigarette; it's a prop."
