15 years of no smoking for James Bond! But what about the second hand smoke from his co-stars?

But, he has still exposed to second smoke from his romantic partners (we know there are a lot of those) and other characters in the movies! Bond smoked the most in the 1960's but had his last smoke in "Die Another Day" in 2002 even though his co-stars kept smoking.

Of the 27 James Bond films, only 2006's "Casino Royale" didn't show any smoking. In the most recent 007 movie in 2015 ("Spectre"), Bond and his significant associates didn't smoke but other characters did. This resulted in an estimated 261 million "tobacco impressions" for 10- to 29-year-olds in the United States.
