      Elijah Wood has been outspoken about wanting more rights for smokers. He has said, "Can we not let the use of free air be determined by the people using it? Should someone have a problem with roving smoke, they could simply ask the offending smoker if he or she would kindly refrain. Most spaces are smoke free, and I accept that - particularly inside restaurants - but can smokers not have patios and general outdoor areas?"

      In a 2004 interview with The Independent, Wood admitted to smoking upwards of 30 clove cigarettes per day.
