The movie “Footloose” made Kevin Bacon famous as an actor in the United States. He has also been in movies like “JFK,” “A Few Good Men,” and “Apollo 13.” One of Bacon’s strengths is that he does well in a lot of different types of writing. “National Lampoon’s Animal House,” “Tremors,” and “Crazy, Stupid, Love” are all comedies that people remember him for. With his role in “The Following,” the star also did well on TV.
The actor has won a number of awards, including a Golden Globe Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award. Bacon was also up for both the Primetime Emmy Award and the Academy Award. In 2003, he got his own star on the Walk of Fame in Hollywood.
Bacon is also a loving father and husband, in addition to being a successful actor. He’s been with actress Kyra Sedgwick for more than 30 years. They have two kids together. Travis is their son, and Sosie is their daughter. In order to raise their children in New York City, the couple had to give up some career goals.
Sedgwick is best known for being the main character on “The Closer,” a TV show. For her role on the show, the actress won both a Golden Globe Award and a Primetime Emmy Award. The show ended in 2012, but it had a great run of 7 seasons. People also remember Sedgwick for her funny part in the comedy “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.” “Something to Talk About,” “Born on the Fourth of July,” and “Singles” are all movies she has been in.
When her children were born, the actress took a break from acting, but she got more roles as they got older. She and Bacon seem to be happy together, and they both care a lot about their family. Read on to find out more about how this famous couple got together.
In 2020, Hollywood hottie Kevin Bacon broke everyone’s hearts with his touching tribute to his wife Kyra Sedgwick. Bacon and Sedgwick met for the first time in the 1970s. Sedgwick had seen Bacon in a local play with her brother. Bacon was 19 and she was only 12 at the time.
“A little girl was there who had just seen the matinee, and her brother told her, ‘You liked that actor, go tell him you liked him,’ and it was Kyra,” he said in 2014 when he was on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. “She was only 12 years old, so she was a little girl.”
Even though Sedgwick didn’t think he was her type at the time, she came to like him over time, and they ended up meeting again years later. In 1988, when Sedgwick was 23, they got married.
They’ve been together for more than 30 years. Bacon shared a picture from their wedding on social media in September 2020, when they were celebrating their 32nd wedding anniversary. He wrote a thank-you note to his very special lady, Sedgwick, on his Instagram page. The actor wrote a simple, sweet note to his wife about how happy he was that they had been together for so long. Bacon wrote as the title of his post, “11,680 days with you.” “Thanks for counting them all.”
Fans of the couple quickly left comments below the post praising their happy, successful marriage and wishing them well. Some people tried to be funny by figuring out how long Bacon and Sedgwick have been together in minutes and seconds. Others, on the other hand, spoke highly of the two lovers and their strong relationship.
But the couple has also been through some hard times. In 2008, Bacon and Sedgwick lost all of their savings to the biggest Ponzi scheme in history. “We found out when the rest of the world did,” Sedgwick told People. “We had both been working professionally since we were 17 years old—Kev since he was 17 and me since I was 15—and that was all the money we had saved up. The day was hard.”
Even though it was terrible at the time, both Bacon and Sedgwick got over it and said that it made them realize what really matters in life: their kids and their health.
The couple talked to Glamour magazine about how they have been together for a long time and how they help each other with their careers.
At the time, Bacon said, “Kyra felt very strongly that she needed to be there for her kids when she started having them. Because of the kids, she made career choices that weren’t always the best for her career. We kept living in New York because we wanted to raise our kids there, but Los Angeles had more work.”
Sedgwick was the one who took charge first, but her husband paid her back when she got her big break on the award-winning show “The Closer.”
“Then The Closer came along. I don’t even think of this as a sacrifice, but the kids were still in high school or junior high, and she had the chance to go to California and be the lead in a TV show. I told him, “Listen, I’ll take care of the kids.” This was the first time in our lives that I said, “I’ll stay home and not bring anything.””
