Kiefer Sutherland never “dreads” putting black tie on for a formal occasion.
The 24 star has been attending lots of glitzy events to promote the comeback of the hit show 24: Live Another Day, which has 12 episodes this season.
While many stars dread hitting the red carpet and getting papped, Kiefer is keen to get his glad rags on.
“It was within the past five months for a dinner,” he revealed when People magazine asked him about the last time he wore black tie. “I enjoy getting dressed up for a formal occasion. I have friends that dread it. I am not one of them.”
Kiefer keeps in great shape by playing hockey and admits he needs the exercise to keep him on track for filming 24.
“Physically, 24 is a hard show to do,” he recently admitted to Esquire. “I look back and see we did 192 episodes over eight seasons. I don’t know how we did it. It makes you want to go take a nap.”
The actor turned 47 last December and rarely thinks about the ageing process. However, he did have to take a breather when he hit the big 4-5.
“That was the first age I ever hit where I started doing the maths — ‘In five years I will be 50. Oh my God, in ten years I’ll be 55. In 20 years I will be 65. At 65 you get half-price tickets to f**king movies, holy sh*t,'” he admitted. “It made me acknowledge how much I’ve enjoyed my life. I’ve got a really wonderful family, and some fantastic friends.”
