10 Things You Didn’t Know About Kevin Bacon And Kyra Sedgwick’s Relationship
Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick are the kind of Hollywood couple that gives us relationship goals. They have been together for almost 30 years and are just as in love as they were when they first got together and had two children. Since these two are about to celebrate their 29th anniversary, we have 10 things you didn’t know about their relationship:
10. First Meeting
Twelve-year-old Kyra met 19-year-old Kevin at a deli back in the ‘70s. He was in a play and had just finished his matinee performance when a young girl approached him. “A little girl was in there who had just seen the matinee, and her brother said, ‘You liked that actor, go tell him you liked him’ and it was Kyra,” Kevin said.
9. Meeting Again
They met again on the set of the television version of Lemon Sky. Bacon had already made a name for himself thanks to his roles in films like Footloose and Diner. Initially, Sedgwick wasn’t overly impressed with her co-star. “I thought he was incredibly cocky and bought into his whole movie-star persona,” she said of their second meeting. By the time filming wrapped, however, these two were an item and she was convinced that he was the one. “I had no great role models in terms of healthy marriages, but I knew in my heart and soul that he was the right person,” she told Good Housekeeping. “It was an unquestionable truth of mine. I’ve never had anything like that before or after.”
