British actor Jeremy Irons fears the forthcoming English ban on smoking in public places will change some of his life-long habits, including staying at posh London hotel The Savoy. The Oscar-winning Brideshead Revisited star says he will have to give up some of his favourite hobbies when the national ban comes into force this July (07). He says, "I think the character of places across London will be changed by the ban. I went to the Savoy recently only to find that I couldn't smoke, so I won't be staying there again. Smokers will go to different places." And Irons believes he won't die from his nicotine addiction. He adds, "Personally, I am unconvinced that smoking kills you. I think genetics takes a more important role."
