Kiefer Sutherland, the star of the hit series 24, has opened up to Men’s Vogue about his time in jail last year for a DUI. Although prison officials called him a “model prisoner,” Sutherland says the conditions were awful. “There’s no smoking,” Sutherland says. “The lights never go out, 24/7. You can’t cover anything. You can’t even put your head under a blanket. All the cells have cameras in them.” He was also surprised to find out he had to share a cell. “I was told, you know, ‘You’ll have your own cell.’ But I didn’t for the first two or three weeks; I had a cell mate,” he says. He added that before his stint was up, the cell mate had returned. Sutherland has gone back to smoking since being released, but thinks he could kick the habit, saying: “My drinking was not a daily thing, so it wasn’t an issue,” he says. “And, oddly enough, neither was the smoking. I was very glad to know that I could quit. And one day soon I will.” Sutherland stars as Jack Bauer in the TV movie 24: Redemption on November 23rd. The show’s new season kicks off on January 11th.
