Mexican movie star Diego Luna has attacked anti-smoking activists for making too much of nicotine use while war wages around the globe.

The OPEN RANGE star wants people to concentrate more on stopping wars than infringing on others' rights.

He says, "I wish people would react to war the way they react to cigarettes.

"You open the newspapers and they say that this country bombed this other country and no one really goes out and protests.

"You see how many innocent people have died in the past year and a half and we still make a big thing about cigarettes."
