It’s quite common in Hollywood for couples to come and go. Even for regular couples, 30 years is a long time to be married, with few making it that far. Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick did, however! And this month they celebrated their 30th anniversary with a touching tribute. Cheers to them!
Meet The Bacon-Sedgewick Family
Kevin Bacon is one of the 80’s greatest breakout stars. His iconic role in Footloose in 1984 secured the actor’s place in Hollywood and in the hearts of many fans. From there, he continued starring in movies as well as television. Bacon’s been in his fair share of massive hits, including JFK, A Few Good Men, and Apollo 13. On TV, Bacon scored one of his greatest roles on The Following (Fox, 2013-2015) as federal agent Ryan Hardy. Just before that, Bacon was also in HBO’s original movie, Taking Chance, for which he won both a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild award for best actor in a miniseries.
Kyra Sedgwick is an American actress, who also began acting in the 80s. Her career has included many excellent roles, such as Emma in Something To Talk About, which earned the actress an Emmy. Sedgwick is featured in many great films and television series, including Born on the Fourth of July as well as a recurring role on Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Recently, Sedgwick had an incredible run as the main lead in TNT’s The Closer. It ran for seven years, with Sedgwick winning a Golden Globe for her performance.
A Real Hollywood Love And Beginning
You might’ve missed the fact that Bacon and Sedgwick are married. They are one of those lovely Hollywood couples that keep their lives private and low-key. From time to time they bless us with family photos on their social media or a joint interview. However, overall, they’re one of those long-lasting Hollywood couples that leads a loving, normal life.
Like so many Hollywood power couples before them, Bacon and Sedgwick also met while filming. The pair met on the set of the TV movie Lemon Sky, which aired on PBS in 1988. That same year the two married, going on to have two children: Travis, 29, and Sosie, 26. Over their years together, Bacon and Sedgwick have co-starred in many films together, including Murder in the First, The Woodsmen, and, most recently, Cop Car.
The Touching Tribute
For their 30th anniversary, Bacon uploaded a video of him and his wife singing “To Love Somebody,” a Bee Gees hit from 1967. It is a touching, heartfelt duet, with Sedgwick playing the ukulele and Bacon playing guitar. The beautiful video was retweeted, shared, and commented on thousands of times. Bacon said in the caption, “30 years! I can’t believe it. [Kyra Sedgwick] is the woman of my dreams and the music in my life,” to which Sedgwick replied, “30 yrs. Wow. Love you so.”
While Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick have been blessing us for more than 30 years with their artistry and talent, that’s just part of their charm. They’ve also shown us that Hollywood love, and everyday love, can last!
