Kevin Bacon Talks Madoff, Marriage and Footloose

Kevin Bacon has nothing to hide, though times haven't always been Footloose and fancy free. Kevin talks to Details in the June/July issue, about his role in the latest X-Men movie, his marriage and a whole lot more. On stands now.

DETAILS: You once said that it's easy to get laid when you're famous. Is it harder to stay married to the same woman—Kyra Sedgwick—for more than two decades?
Kevin Bacon: It's hard to explain, other than to say I like being married to her. I like spending time with her. We have found the right person to be with. I do think that, as a guy, if you never get a chance to experience more than one partner, that's going to be a really tough road. Luckily, I did.

DETAILS: The two of you lost a lot of money in the Madoff scandal. What was that experience like?
Kevin Bacon: I'm not going to say it didn't have its emotional downsides. But we're both young, and we both had the ability to work and roll up our sleeves and start putting the pieces back together. The truth is that we went through it together.
DETAILS: Did it have any impact on your professional decisions?
Kevin Bacon: Yeah, I think so. While I try to have integrity about the work that I do and the choices I make, I've also said from a very young age that I need to work. I don't think I suffer from the disease of specialness.
