Kiefer Sutherland’s Butts Heads with Real Life
The problem with playing a relentless badass who never fails save the day is that real life suddenly seems so much more boring.
You get disappointed when the binman really is the binman and not a terrorist operative planting a radiation device in your bin. You almost wish for a husky voice on the other end of the phone instructing you to find and disarm a bomb, instead of being your mum inviting you round for dinner.
So when fashion designer Jack McCollough accidently bumped into Brooke Shields in the presence of sometime CIA hardman Jack Bauer, Kiefer Sutherland took the opportunity to come to Shields’ defence with both hands. And his head.
Sutherland is being charged for the alleged assault which took place at an after party for the Costume Institute Of The Metropolitan Museum Gala in New York.
Shields is reported to have said: “Jack did nothing inappropriate. It’s not clear what caused Kiefer to do what he did.”
That’s gratitude for you…
