The new mom, 32, opened up in a new interview about why the prop, which was featured heavily in the original 101 Dalmatians movie, didn’t make the cut in the new live action spin-off film.
“That is not allowed in 2021,” Emma told The New York Times. “We are not allowed to smoke on screen in a Disney film. It was difficult to not have that cigarette holder … I was so excited to have that green plume of smoke in there, but it was not possible.”
Disney first banned smoking in all of its films around 2007, and extended the rule to all Lucasfilm, Marvel, and Pixar films in 2015. Emma Stone added, “I don’t want to promote smoking, but I’m also not trying to promote skinning puppies.” So funny!
