With her TNT show The Closer now in its 7th and final season, actress Kyra Sedgwick says it’s a bittersweet ending. The mom-of-two – she and Kevin Bacon have kids Travis, 22, and Sosie, 19 – talks to Parade magazine about how she plans to fill her time: With date nights, knitting and (she hopes!) grandkids.
On her new found free time: “I look forward to grandchildren because I think that will be my hobby, but that’s probably not going to happen for a long time. Hopefully, I’ll take up knitting or something when I’m not working.”
On Sunday mornings: “I like to read the paper; it’s my time to catch up with the world. Ideally I have brunch with my husband and kids. Sundays are hard because I grew up in a divorced family, and sometimes the day was about going to the other home, which was always sort of confusing. I can still get what I call Sunday-itis.”
On having an empty nest: “There’s something to waking up and thinking, ‘What am I doing today?’ instead of, ‘How can I squeeze in what I need to do around their schedules?’ But hearing my kids walk through the front door saying hello is still the best sound to me.”
On how she and Kevin spend a perfect date night: “Um … what do you think? [laughs] We like to be alone together, and then go out to dinner. I really love to talk about thoughts and feelings. That never gets old.”
