Jack Bauer Hates Christmas Trees
Kiefer Sutherland, star of "24", apparently bought a hotel lobby Christmas tree so that he could smash it. Then he passed out on the floor.
The scene of the crime was the Strand Palace Hotel in London's West End.
Because this story is too bizarre for words (aren't all drunk Kiefer Sutherland stories?) we're letting The Sunday Mirror take care of it.
He ordered yet more booze on room service, then staggered around the entrance hall, entertaining pals with a bizarre, flailing breakdancing routine.
It was then that a huge Christmas tree caught his eye.
"I hate that f---ing Christmas tree," he declared. "The tree HAS to come down."
Kiefer warned staff: "I'm smashing it - can I pay for it?"
A staff member replied: "I'm absolutely sure you can, sir."
The Lost Boys star then hurled himself into the Norwegian Spruce, sending baubles and lights crashing to the ground. Pulling pine needles out of his hair and t-shirt, he said to a hotel employee: "Ooh sorry about that...you're so cool. This f---ing hotel rocks."
