Coco Avant Chanel Movie Poster Banned in Paris

This poster for Coco Chanel biopic Coco Avant Chanel was banned in Paris by Metrobus, which runs advertising on the city's trains and buses. The problem? Audrey Tautou appears — good heavens — smoking a cigarette. Metrobus demanded the ad be replaced with one of Tautou standing next to the male lead, sans cigarette. Coco Chanel smoked 50 cigarettes a day. It's hard to find a picture of her where she is not either holding or smoking a cigarette. Many are calling the ban ridiculous, including France's health minister. [Telegraph UK]
