Kiefer Sutherland Shares Hilarious Story Behind His Lost Boys Haircut And How He’s At Least Partially To Blame For The Mullet ‘Movement’


Kiefer Sutherland has had a remarkable career in film and television that has lasted over 30 years. From the coming of age drama Stand by Me to his role as Jack Bauer in 24, which Sutherland may not be quite done with, the actor has played many memorable roles that have become part of popular culture at large. But the actor also thinks he may have accidentally been a style icon as well, though not a very good one. It seems Sutherland’s character in The Lost Boys may have greatly helped to popularize the mullet.

Speaking with GQ, Kiefer Sutherland recently recounted several of his most popular roles and when discussing the character of David, the vampire he played in The Lost Boys, the actor states that he ended up with the “business up front, party in the back” haircut because he was trying to emulate his own rock ‘n’ roll idol, while also staying true to instructions he received from director Joel Schumacher. Sutherland explained… 

Joel Schumacher wanted me to have white hair, and I had very long hair at the time and he wanted me to keep it. And I just looked like a bad wrestler, I looked like a moron. It was just awful. I thought Billy Idol was really cool and looked really cool, I still think he looks really cool. His hair was all spiky and kind of punk in front, so I got that haircut, but I left enough at the back so I could tell Joel Schumacher I left it long. And I think kind of accidentally might have at least been part of a movement that created one of the worst hairstyles of all time: the mullet.
