Kevin Bacon Reveals Secret Behind His Long-Lasting Marriage To Kyra Sedgwick
In the crazy world of Hollywood, it’s rare to find any marriage that is able to stand the test of time.
That’s what makes the 32-year marriage of stars Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick so unique!
“Kyra [Sedgwick] and I believe in each other as actors, as directors and as a talent,” Bacon told People magazine on Monday.
“She doesn’t have a competitive bone in her body when it comes to me. She takes my successes as hers. I’m the same way.”
Bacon and Sedgwick tied the knot in 1988, and they are parents to 31 year-old Travis and 28 year-old Sosie.
Both of their kids have pursued careers in entertainment as well, as Travis is a musician while Sosie is an actress.
Bacon went on to add that he and his wife had no trouble adjusting to life in quarantine amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We do, we clean, we decide what we’re having for the next meal, and then we cook it, clean it and decide what we’re having for the next meal,” he explained.
Bacon also said that there’s nobody else that he would rather be in quarantine with than Sedgwick.
“Her partnership is invaluable,” he said. “I found someone I was meant to be with.”
Though Bacon is now 62 years-old, he made it clear that he has no plans to slow down anytime soon.
“A lot of people who are my age are thinking about pumping the breaks a little,” he said. “I’m really looking down the road. I don’t have much of a rearview mirror.”
Sedgwick previously opened up to Glamour magazine about the importance of keeping things fresh in a marriage.
“I started skiing when I was 40, which was something we never did together [before]. I swear one day we’ll take some kind of dance lesson or something awful like that,” she said.
“Kevin gave me a ukulele, and that was something really new and cool. I wouldn’t call myself inherently musical, but it is super fun. And I can’t pick up my ukulele without him picking up his guitar and wanting to jam. Sometimes I’m like, ‘Let me stumble through this on my own!’ But he’s a natural teacher.”
“I’m a musician, so we always have guitars around. Now that she’s learned to play the ukulele, if I take out my guitar, she’s more apt to take her ukulele out too. It’s nice,” added Bacon.
“She travels with a ukulele, it’s always with her, and we’ll pop up some song we’re thinking about singing or she hears on the radio and is like, ‘Do you think I could play that on the ukulele?’ I’m like, ‘Yeah sure, let’s figure it out.'”
