Kurt barely graduated high school, had one of the lowest SAT’s in his class and went to the only state college that would take him. A fucked-up home, childhood obesity, food/drug addiction and relentless television watching all contributed to his absurd, insular world of violent fantasies and sexual dreams. He hardly reads books, he plays a fuckload of games and his only marketable skill is his imagination.
The thing that makes Sutter remotely human and considerably happy is his family – his wife, Katey, and their three kids, Sarah, Jackson and Esme.

Looper and Expanding the Marvel Universe in the Wrong DirectionKurt Sutter on the Punisher movie we never got to see by Will Harris "So they hand off this project to me, and my whole thing was, 'I'm just gonna f— up the formula! I'm gonna mix it up! I'm gonna make it different!'...But here I go again: expanding the Marvel Universe in the wrong direction. See, this is why I never get hired!"
Kurt Sutter on Lucas Stand with USA TodayFirst look: Kurt Sutter gets demonic for 'Lucas Stand' by Brian Truitt "If hell's going to have a hitman, it's probably best that Kurt Sutter created him. The producer behind Sons of Anarchy goes from Hamlet on bikes to otherworldly supernatural fantasy with the new Boom! Studios comic book Lucas Stand, debuting June 1 and written by Sutter and Caitlin Kittredge (Coffin Hill) with art by Jesús Hervás."
Rolling Stone MagazineThe Original Son of Anarchy: How did an ex-food-and-drug addict like Kurt Sutter create one of the decade's biggest hits? by Erik Hedegaard ""When I'm not writing, I don't quite know who I am," he says. "I'm lost a little bit. It's like, what am I? Who am I? What am I doing? I don't do well. Idle hands and all. I'm a little bit fucked up. But it's part of my charm." He's smiling, and his fingers are still wrestling with his T-shirt, almost turning it inside out, as can sometimes happen when you aren't paying attention."
The Hollywood Reporter'Bastard Executioner's' Kurt Sutter on His Troubled Past, C-Word Insults and New 'Sons of Anarchy' Spinoff by Lacey Rose “I feel like I have a job as a storyteller, and part of that job is engaging an audience,” says Sutter, who intends to maintain that populist philosophy that guided him on 'Sons of Anarchy' for 'The Bastard Executioner.' “It’s not about me sitting in my ivory tower sending out scripts with a sense of, ‘I don’t f—ing care if people like this shit or not.’ ”
Kurt Talks Southpaw with VultureKurt Sutter on His First Feature Film, Southpaw, and Why The Bastard Executioner Won’t Be Like a CSI: Wales By John Horn "Yeah, I think that it's always an interesting conflict for a character or a man in general who has those savage impulses, that when buttons get pushed, the reaction goes to 10, and as a result of that creates a lot of wreckage, burns a lot of bridges, and yet the flip side of that passion is a guy who is incredibly sensitive, doesn't have many friends, is very connected to the people in his life."
THR - Pet EditionTHE HOLLYWOOD PET SET: 12 A-LISTERS WITH THEIR ANIMAL COMPANIONS by Jeanie Pyun "I always refer to my recent fascination with birds as my midlife crisis, which I keep telling my wife is better than crack and hookers," jokes Sons of Anarchy showrunner Sutter, 47. Sutter's wife (and star of his gritty biker series), Katey Sagal, 59, actually is to blame for Sutter's affinity for feathered friends because she bought him a pair of diamond doves for Father's Day four years ago."
