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.
