Debi Mazar: ‘I’m So Busted!’ Big-Tobacco Whistle- blower Jeffrey Wigand 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 world-famous Page Six column in today.

“During a live interview on BlogTalkRadio, [Olivia Wilder Times] host Olivia Wilder asked Mazar, ‘Are you a smoker?’

“Hey, one less cigarette a day is better than more,” says off-again, on-again smoker Debi.

“Hey, one less cigarette a day is better than more,” says stop-start smoker Debi.

“‘I don’t have to answer that question. It’s irrelevant,’ the actress [who now plays Adrian Grenier’s prickly flack, Shauna Roberts, on the HBO series Entourage] replied,” the report continues.

“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 [Evelyn Maria, 6, and Guilia Isabel, 2].’

“‘I quit and then I start. I quit and then I start. Right now, I’m some- where 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 at the time and called in to the show.

“You still smoking?” Jeffrey (who was played by Russell Crowe in the 1999 Oscar-nominated film) asked Debi.

Debi, Al Pacino, Philip Baker Hall and Christopher Plummer as the “60 Minutes” crew who helped Jeffrey Wigand expose Big Tobacco.

“I’m so busted!  I’m having a little bit here and there, yes. Is this a smoking inter- vention?” 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!”
