Michael Douglas opened up to Vulture about his troubled son Cameron, who is serving a 10-year prison sentence for drug charges.

The actor says his son became a meth dealer to pay for his heavy heroin habit, and from there things just escalated downward. Though Michael is very candid and honest about his son’s problems, he also accuses the justice system of making him an example because of his father’s fame.

“Lady Justice’s blindfold is really slipping,” he says. He might have a point, because he claims that Cameron was placed in solitary confinement for 11 months and was denied family visits for two years, something usually reserved for murderers.

“He’s a wonderful, talented kid that I love to death,” Michael says.
