Kevin Bacon Talks Family & Films

With their 24th wedding anniversary just around the corner, Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick have one of Hollywood’s longest-lasting relationships. What’s their secret? Well, a great sex life, among other things.

“Any marriage is hard work,” the Golden Globe-winning actor admits. “But what I always say is, ‘Keep the fights clean and the sex dirty.'”

Recalling their early years together, Kevin reveals, “She got pregnant on our honeymoon, my mother died of cancer. It was a crazy time. I took Tremors because I felt enormous pressure to support what was now a family. She was 21. I was 30, but like a kid. It was a real rite of passage.”

Since then Kevin has of course had huge success in his career, starring in box office hits from Footloose to JFK. He says he plans on making movies for a long time yet.

“I am a restless spirit with a restless mind. I’m still hungry for roles. I have great moments of fulfilment with my wife and children, a walk in the woods with my dogs, but I’m still chasing it. It’s a vagabond lifestyle. My suitcase is always sitting there.”

Kevin and Kyra have two kids: Son Travis is 21 and daughter Sosie is 19.

    Hahaha I’m laughing at myself, because I realize my gut-reaction to seeing a photo on the CBS is to think the person/people are having a baby. I was like, whoa! Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick are expecting? 19 years between kids! Wow! But then I looked at the article. 😉

    anything is possible though If Kyra were expecting it would be a lot more likely to be twins because of her age She’ll be 46 is august

    I love this couple but now I’m a little confused. If she got pregnant on their honeymoon and they are celebrating their 24th anniversary, wouldn’t their oldest child be 23?? Did she miscarriage before Travis,21??

    According to IMDB they will have their 23rd wedding anniversary in September, and Travis turns 22 in June. I guess she was 23 though, not 21, when she had Travis.
