Donald Sutherland -- Allergic to Kiefer?

1/28/2008 5:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Sutherland's publicist smells a rat! A rep for the Golden Globe-winning actor refused to allow him to be interviewed at the "Fool's Gold" junket last Friday -- after she got a whiff of cigarette smoke!
Composite of Donald and Kifer Sutherland
Donald has a "serious, serious" smoke allergy says the rep, and there are always strict guidelines in place to ensure he's not exposed to secondhand smoke. Just prior to Donald's arrival at the junket, some staff members had been puffin' away on the balcony -- and that just wasn't going to work.

Incidentally, Sutherland's son, "24" star Kiefer, is rarely seen without a cig. TMZ caught Donald hugging his smoky son last week, after Kiefer's release from jail. Perhaps he held his breath.

Sutherland's publicist had no comment on how he manages his extreme allergy around Kiefer.

To those getting angry about the picture, it's a photo montage supposed to illustrate the theme of the post - it is NOT supposed to be taken literally.

This Name is Not Unique    

I remember reading an article ages ago that said he had to shower and change before seeing his dad. Non-smoking actors (and performers in plays in non-smoking venues) use clove or other herbal cigs for scenes.

The only thing more annoying than smokers' actual habit is how clueless and defensive they are about it. Your family and friends probably won't tell you this to your face, so let me: you smell. Awful. Your breath is like an old toaster. Your teeth are gross. Your clothes are disgusting. And no you don't look cool. You look like smoldering trash.

And of course I believe it was Lois Griffin who so astutely pointed out: girls who smoke, poke.
