In Hollywood we see more divorces than long-lasting love, as we see all around us lately. But we also have examples like Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson who’ve been together forever. One of those couples are Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick.
Kyra was just 12 when she first met Kevin Bacon. She saw a movie with her brother, which starred Bacon, and then met him afterwards.
It was a decade later that their paths were set to cross again on the set of Lemon Sky. Kyra said that Bacon wasn’t her type at first: “He definitely wasn’t my type. In fact, I vividly remember looking at his butt when he walked away after we first met and thinking, Well, I guess some girls like that.”
But true love rose between the two and got married a year later in 1988.
Kevin Bacon children
After 34 of marriage the couple celebrated their anniversary. They welcomed two beautiful children, a son, Travis Sedgwick Bacon and Sosie Ruth.
“If someone had told me that at 22 I was going to meet the man I was going to marry and at 23 I would marry him and have a child, I would have told them they were out of their mind,” Kyra told Redbook in 2008.
Bacon is eternally grateful to have a wife like Kyra and openly shows that in the captions on social media.
But their romance wasn’t always sunshine’s and rainbows.
“The time I was hitting what I considered to be bottom was also the time I met my wife, our kids were born, good things were happening. And I was able to keep supporting myself; that always gave me strength”, Bacon told reporters.
Lost a lot of money
Bacon was tricked in one of the largest Ponzi scheme in history by Bernie Madoff. If you lack ideas to watch the next movie, I would highly suggest the Wizard of Lies with Robert De Niro that perfectly depicts the ponzi scheme.
“It was a bad day,” Bacon told The Guardian and continued: “But pretty quickly we were able to see all the things we had as opposed to whatever we lost, and those are the biggest cliches: children, health, love, a nice home. So we got through it together. I don’t think about Madoff, like, at all.”
In an appearance on the U.S. TV show “Finding Your Roots” Kyra was shocked to discover that she and Bacon are ninth cousins!
It can be a confusing thing to know that you are in love with a distant cousin. Kevin wasn’t that thrilled, but Kyra claimed ”she knew it” but said it was “a little unsettling.” However, she added that she it was OK, as long as they are not first cousins.
But even though it was a shocking discovery, Kevin and Kyra didn’t flinch to make a fuss out of it.
As a matter of fact they enjoy together at their home in LA.
“I’m doing a little writing, even though I truly don’t have any sense of whether or not I’m any good at it at all,” Kyra told People.
“It really is about just finding something to do. Certainly, I don’t spend time with my husband reading Shakespeare, but we’re watching a lot of stuff and we’re reading. We continue to read stuff. I continue to read. I’m trying to touch into my work on a daily basis, for sure.”
Bacon never spares anything to make Kyra feel special.
“I don’t know how he does it, but he always makes me feel like I’m the most beautiful woman in the room – the only girl in the room,” Kyra told People.
“He is so honorable. He is so ethically true. He has high moral standards, and he doesn’t lie and he doesn’t cheat—and I find that sexy!” she said. “I am constantly in awe of Kevin’s levelheadedness and his lack of ‘crazy.’”
She also credits their incredible spark in the bedroom.
Bacon, jokingly, gave a great advice in a 2015 interview published in Entertainment Weekly. : “Whatever you do, don’t listen to celebrities on advice on how to stay married.”
