The Craziest Celebrity Prison Stories Revealed
Sep 26 2020
Going to prison is inevitably going to be a humbling experience, especially when your every move is splashed across the tabloids. No matter the crime, the circumstances, or the length of time behind bars, these stars managed to walk away with some rather illuminating prison tales.
As you may recall, Stewart was imprisoned in 2004 for her alleged involvement in an insider trading scandal. She spent some of her five months in federal prison doing exactly what you'd expect: Making arts and crafts.
In 2016, she revealed that she passed the time in prison by making everything from jam to ceramic nativity sets. Addressing the crowd at a Daily Mail brunch, she reportedly said,
"You're allowed to make three things in a year, I think, and I only had five months so I [made] an entire creche...the entire scene of the nativity...so I had many figures, something like 15 figures, and you're only allowed to make three, but I persuaded them the whole nativity was one and they fell for it. You couldn't just make three camels, you had to make everything."
But that's not to say life behind bars was a walk in the park for Stewart. Speaking to the Today show in 2013, she described her prison time as "terrible."
