(Newser) – Not surprisingly, Kiefer Sutherland didn’t find prison a pleasant experience. “There’s no smoking,” the actor tells Vogue. Though he made it 48 days without cigarettes, the 24 star still hasn’t quit. Sutherland, 41, went on to complain about the lack of privacy, made worse by the fact that he had to share a cell, People reports.

“The lights never go out, 24/7. You can't cover anything. You can't even put your head under a blanket,” Sutherland said. “All the cells have cameras in them.”
