Hollywood Wife Has No Regretsby Ethan AlterTV Guide.comKyra Sedgwick isn't too proud to admit she's no longer on Hollywood's A-list. "To be perfectly frank, there was a time when I was on a really fast trajectory [towards movie stardom]," says the 39-year-old actress. "Then, I got married and had kids. And you know what? I kind of blew it."I didn't really blow it, of course," she adds, "but I stopped my own flow. I met the right person, we wanted to have kids and we did. Somewhere along the way, doing studio pictures just stopped for me and I don't know why. But I can tell you that it's my road and it won't look like anyone else's and for that, I'm very proud."The latest stop on Sedgwick's career path is a just-released indie film, The Woodsman . She plays Vickie, a woman with a troubled past who falls in love with Walter, a convicted pedophile recently released from prison. Tough stuff, made even tougher by the fact that Sedgwick's co-star in the movie is her real-life husband Kevin Bacon."It's the hardest acting job I've ever had to do by far," Sedgwick says of working with Bacon. "There's a trust there that lets us go to deep places, but we know we can go to deep places anyway. He's an unbelievably amazing actor. You throw the ball and he throws it back in an interesting and surprising way. As much as I know him, I'm constantly amazed at his choices, which really is where your talent lies."I think we've gotten a little braver about working together," Sedgwick continues. "I had a career before I met Kevin and vice versa. In some ways, the fact that we're married has worked against me. I never wanted to capitalize on it or jump on his coattails. I also don't think that people like seeing couples working together very much. But [we feel like] we're good enough and we can pull this off."Clearly, the couple feels secure enough in their personal life to take their professional relationship to the next level. Bacon recently finished directing his wife in the independent film Loverboy , which debuts at the Sundance Film Festival in January. "He's an amazing director," gushes Sedgwick. "I'd work with him as a director every time out."But don't expect her to return the favor. "I don't want to direct," she says. "I am a good producer ? I'm good at hiring other people to do jobs I know I can't do. As far as directing goes, I just don't know if I have the head for it. I'd be good working with actors, but would have trouble visualizing how it all comes together."

Bacon taken off TV show for gay sceneMonday October 10 2005 00:00 IST IANSNEW YORK: Actor Kevin Bacon has claimed he was taken off an interview on TV "Today" show because a recent movie he was promoting was rated NC-17 (strictly no children under 17 allowed) for a gay scene it contained.The movie "Where The Truth Lies" is directed by Atom Egoyan. The gay scene involves Bacon and the British actor Colin Firth, reported Pagesix.com. Bacon said, "They had me booked on the 'Today' show and they cancelled it because of the NC-17 rating.

Bacon Tells the 'Truth' About CelebrityWed, Oct 12, 2005, 10:10 AM PTBy Daniel Fienberg LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com)- In Atom Egoyan's "Where the Truth Lies," Kevin Bacon plays Lanny Morris, one half (with Colin Firth's Vince Collins) of an entertaining duo who rose to fame in the '50s, only to split up after the mysterious death of a young woman. Although Bacon is the subject of a popular game that makes him into the nexus of Hollywood celebrity, the role was a change of pace for the actor. "I had done 'Mystic River' and 'The Woodsman' and they were both internalized characters, characters who could hold an awful lot inside, and I thought it might be cool to go back and do something kind of external and showy," Bacon says. "I also have rarely played an entertainer, and certainly have rarely played a celebrity, so to tap into those two parts of my own personality, I thought, seemed like it might be kind of interesting." After delving into the darkest parts of his psyche for those earlier films, "Where the Truth Lies" afforded Bacon the opportunity to sing and dance and crack jokes as the more manic of the duo. Of course, he also got to show the darker side of celebrity, the drugs, the sex (enough to earn the movie an NC-17 certification, though it will be released unrated) and, of course, the inevitable decline. "There's an addictive quality to fame and when your celebrity starts to wane, people get a real fear about that," Bacon reflects. "And that's why I think sometimes you see people who will put themselves on whatever real weird reality shows or they'll find themselves just back in the paper by doing something horrible. I almost get the feeling that it's better than not being in the paper." Since his big screen debut as Chip "Thank you sir, may I nave another" Diller in 1978's "Animal House," Bacon's on status hasn't really waned. He's worked with directors from Oliver Stone to Ron Howard to Curtis Hanson to Barry Levinson and, as any good film fan knows, he's co-starred with just about every actor on the planet. He's also managed to keep a level head. "I connect to my family and my friends and ... I try to make things more important than the industry, basically," he says. Although he's always been recognizable, Bacon's family has experienced an extra infusion of celebrity this year as wife Kyra Sedgwick has gone from admired character actor to television star thanks to the success of TNT's "The Closer." "She used to never put a hat on or put sunglasses on ... which is the first sign of an actor trying not to get recognized," Bacon chuckles. "Now she's starting to realize that she has to." Bacon has been in $100 million blockbusters and in tiny films scene mostly by the immediate members of his family. He's played American heroes, tortured pedophiles and, in one animated instance, a dog. "I feel like I'm definitely not pigeon-holed, but to me what would be shocking now is for me to be in a situation where I just get the bad guy and kiss the girl or do something comedic or just straight-ahead romantic that's not sexually twisted, you know?" he says. "To be in a Disney movie or something like that, that's really what I'm sort of looking for." Bacon continues, "Career planning is an oxymoron, I find, but I am sort of trying to focus on doing something that's kind of mainstream." "Where the Truth Lies" opens in limited release on Friday, Oct. 14.

Kevins dad died....I guess he has a sister and a wife named Kira...different spellings though...kinda strange...not a common name

Edmund Bacon was a Philadelphia civic institution, responsible for
redeveloping much of the Center City landscape during his long career
as city planner. Here's the Philadelphia Inquirer obit; it's long, but
fascinating nonetheless:


Edmund Bacon dead at 95
By Stephan Salisbury and Leonard W. Boasberg
INQUIRER STAFF WRITERS


Edmund Bacon, 95, the brilliant, irascible city planner who spent much
of the first part of the 20th century reinventing Philadelphia and the
American city and much of the latter part defending his achievements,
died today of natural causes at his Center City home, according to
family members.


He suffered in recent years from a variety of what were, to him, mostly
annoying ailments and infirmities that got in the way of doing things.


Whether Mr. Bacon was pushing for the demolition of the city's infamous
old Chinese Wall to make way for the modern commercial downtown,
arguing for selective redevelopment of a shabby river ward that became
known as Society Hill, conceiving of a central city mall anchored by
big department stores - the future Market East, or sketching out plans
for what became iconic spaces like Independence Mall and JFK Plaza, he
kept one thing foremost in his mind: Philadelphia could be at the top
of contemporary American cities, boasting a vibrant center, muscular
public design, housing for the middle and upper classes, and
rejuvenated greenspaces.


"Philadelphia has lost one of its greatest citizens," Gov. Rendell said
in interview. "The landscape of this city would have been miserably
different and decidedly poorer had Ed Bacon chosen not to be a
Philadelphian.


"The example and high standards that Ed Bacon set should be a constant
reminder to all of us involved in planning for the expansion and future
of our city."


An almost heroic, if not maniacal, force of will guided Mr. Bacon, a
man born and raised in Philadelphia, a city which he viewed on the eve
of World War II as "the worst, most backward, stupid city that I ever
heard of."


But almost in the same breath, he resolved then "that come hell or high
water, I would devote my life's blood to making Philadelphia as good as
I could."


Like Robert Moses, his sometime rival in New York, Mr. Bacon shaped the
urban landscape with grand - and sometimes grandiose - schemes. But
unlike Moses, who controlled hundreds of millions of dollars and
wielded the authority conferred by such wealth, Bacon achieved his
stature and power from the force of his ideas and rhetoric, the clarity
of his vision, the support of powerful reform-minded political patrons
and sheer stubbornness.


A tall, lanky man with a shock of white hair who was a familiar figure
on the streets around his yellow-doored house near Rittenhouse Square -
he even hopped on a skateboard a couple of years ago while urging the
city to rescind its ban on skating in JFK Plaza - Mr. Bacon was capable
of scathing put-downs as well as slicing sardonic humor.


While not usually characterized as unduly modest, in later years he
sometimes said he was most well known as "the father of Kevin Bacon,"
the movie star, not to mention his five other children, whom he said
were all "doing very interesting things."


But Mr. Bacon's fame and legacy firmly rests on his service as
executive director of the city Planning Commission from 1949 to 1970, a
time in which he saw the development of Society Hill, Independence
Mall, Penn Center, University City, Penn's Landing, Market East and the
Far Northeast.


His office was considered so visionary and effective, that Time
magazine put him on its cover in 1964.


He was "largely responsible for the rebirth of Philadelphia as a vital
city," declared the American Institute of Planners in announcing Bacon
as recipient of its 1971 distinguished service award.


The citation of the prestigious Philadelphia Award, which Mr. Bacon
received in 1984, paid homage to his public role as "a pioneer in urban
revitalization."


Architect Vincent Kling, who worked with him on Penn's Landing and Penn
Center, which replaced the Chinese Wall, a monumental stone railroad
trestle that blockaded Center City from the Schuylkill to City Hall,
described Bacon as "the brightest, most energetic city planner we've
had here since William Penn."


Bacon's plans did not always become reality, for better or worse, and
he often ignited controversy.


And while Mr. Bacon may have preferred to get his way without public
controversy, he did not shun it and was hardly afraid to use it to his
advantage.


In the spring of 1970, two months after he resigned as city planner and
development coordinator, Mr. Bacon replied to a special grand jury
investigating the 1500 Market St. development. In its presentment
(which did not implicate him in wrongdoing), the jury accused him of
having given "evasive" testimony.


Bacon angrily replied, in a speech to the Rotary Club of Philadelphia,
that the presentment was a "big lie."


"The only evasiveness involved was my evasion of punching him [a deputy
district attorney who had questioned him] in the nose," he declared.


Bacon was also a proponent of the Crosstown Expressway, which would
have linked the Schuylkill and Delaware River expressways by cutting a
swath along South Street. After years of controversy, the idea was
rejected, and South Street became the site of its own renaissance.


Some neighborhood groups and preservationists criticized him for
tearing down more than necessary. Bacon insisted that he tore down only
what was necessary to preserve and enhance the city.


The restoration of Society Hill was a case in point.


In the 1950s, urban renewal usually meant destroying blighted
neighborhoods in order to save them.


Bacon, however, began calling for the restoration of the neighborhood,
with its 18th and 19th century houses, even before becoming planning
commission director in 1949. Society Hill was transformed from the slum
neighborhood it had become to a prestigious area of expensive homes and
thriving businesses during his long tenure as city planner.


That said, much was torn down, and Mr. Bacon was constantly butting
heads with Charles Peterson, the legendary preservationist who served
as architectural historian for the park service and essentially
designed Independence National Historical Park.


Peterson, who died last year, never forgave Mr. Bacon for the scope of
demolition.


Nevertheless, the two men were jointly honored this year as Society
Hill's "founding fathers" with a historical marker on Spruce Street.


Bacon could be spectacularly wrong, without question. He once call for
tearing down City Hall (except for the tower) - a proposal that was, he
would later ruefully admit, "one of my terrible mistakes." He also
disclaimed credit for the idea of the Crosstown Expressway, and
expressed fervent thanks that it was never built.


Throughout his tenure and after leaving his post, Bacon resisted
attempts to build buildings higher than William Penn's statue atop City
Hall.


There had always been, he argued, an unwritten rule, based on a
"gentlemen's agreement," against exceeding the height limit of 491
feet. Anyone who sought to break this "marvelous agreement," he wrote
in a letter to the editor of this newspaper in 1984, would have "to
answer the age-old question, 'Are you a gentleman?' "


After William Rouse's development of the two Liberty Place towers broke
the "agreement," Mr. Bacon remained unreconciled.


Bacon served as Planning Commission director under four mayors: Bernard
Samuels, the last Republican to hold the office; Joseph S. Clark;
Richardson Dilworth, and James H. J. Tate.


Since the commission is primarily an advisory body rather than the
center of real authority, Bacon exerted his power through persuasion,
through the respect in which he was held, and, many felt, through
political astuteness.


"People always think I exercised political power," he told an
interviewer a few years ago. "They're wrong. I had a personal policy
that I would always support the policies of the administration I was
working for."


Bacon could be astringent in his criticism of architects, who, he
maintained, could be so preoccupied with the surface features of a
building that they missed the setting in which it was placed.


"Great cities are not great because of individual buildings. They're
great because of the way things fit together," he said.


When he first proposed the concept of Penn Center, he said, "I was
chastised by the Philadelphia chapter of the American Institute of
Architecture because I presumed to make a plan where there was no
client and no program. You're not supposed to do a design for a
building unless someone engages you to do it. Everything I did was
unconventional."


Edmund Norwood Bacon was born May 2, 1910, in Philadelphia, the
descendent of Quakers who had come to Pennsylvania in 1682. He grew up
in West Philadelphia - his father was medical editor for the publishing
firm of J. B. Lippincott. He graduated from Cornell University with a
degree in architecture in 1932, the depth of the Great Depression, and
promptly took off for Europe. From there he made his way to Shanghai,
China, where he spent a year working with an American architect.


Back in the States, he worked for Philadelphia architect W. Pope
Barney, then went to the Cranbrook Academy, in Bloomfield Hills, Mich.,
to study under the celebrated Finnish architect Eliel Saarinen. The
architect assigned him to work with the Flint, Mich., Planning Council.
He started in 1937 and stayed two years, long enough to receive the
town's Young Man of the Year Award and, two weeks later, to get ousted
for having tried to push through a public housing project over the
objections of powerful local real estate interests.


Even the middle-class automobile workers who would have benefited most
for the project voted against it in a referendum he had organized, he
would recall years later.


"I was thrown out of Flint in disgrace," he said. "But I had learned
that city planning is combination of social input as well as design."


Returning to Philadelphia, he was taken under the wing of Walter
Phillips, an energetic and visionary lawyer with close ties to the
city's increasingly restive and assertive political reform movement led
by Joseph Clark and Richardson Dilworth. Phillips lured Mr. Bacon into
a job as managing director of the city housing authority.


After serving in the Navy during World War II, Mr. Bacon returned to
Philadelphia in 1946 and the following year co-designed the Better
Philadelphia Exhibition, a show of models and plans that foretold what
came to be called the "Philadelphia renaissance." He joined the
Planning Commission that year, taking over as executive director in
1949. The next year he also began teaching at the University of
Pennsylvania as adjunct professor.


After retiring from public life in 1970, Mr. Bacon became vice
president of the Montreal-based development company Mondev
International Ltd., worked on downtown renewal programs, and organized
the 1993 World Congress on the Post Petroleum City - an idea he had
proposed the year before in his keynote address at a United Nations
symposium on metropolitan development and conservation.


He spent much time in the past decade or so seeking to fend off what he
considered poorly conceived plans to alter or obliterate some of his
planning efforts. He fought vocal, losing battles to block the National
Park Service from carving up the expanse of Independence Mall with new
buildings. And he was incensed by the recent redesign of JFK Plaza with
its attendant ban on skateboarding.


Asked a few years ago what he thought his greatest achievement had
been, Mr. Bacon replied: "Philadelphia."


His wife, the former Ruth Holmes, whom he married in 1938, died in
1991. He is survived by their six children, Karin, Elinor, Hilda,
Michael, Kira and Kevin; and five grandchildren.



A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. Oct. 23 at Central
Philadelphia Monthly Meeting, 15th and Cherry Streets.

Page Six

July 23, 2006 -- KYRA Sedgwick doesn't mince words when asked what her favorite paper is. "The New York Post. If I'm going to read all of that gossip and stuff, it may as well be Page Six," the fetching blond star of "The Closer" tells the July/August issue of Arrive magazine. She also trashes the Daily News, revealing how the accuracy-challenged paper once had her " 'tapping my stilettos irritably as I waited for my husband' . . . I don't wear stilettos."

Bacon uses ‘6 degrees’ notoriety for charity
Web site shows which charities celebrities are supporting
Associated Press
Updated: 7:39 p.m. CT Jan 28, 2007

WASHINGTON - Kevin Bacon says he used to think the “six degrees of Kevin Bacon” game was a joke that would die out, but since it hasn’t, he is using the notoriety for charity.

“I thought it was definitely going to go the way of eight-track cassettes and pet rocks. But it’s a concept that has sort of hung around in the Zeitgeist,” Bacon told George Stephanopolous on ABC’s “This Week” in a show that aired Sunday.

Bacon said he was “kind of horrified at the idea” that he could be connected to any actor in the universe in six steps, but then he started asking people what could be done with the notion.

Bacon and the nonprofit Network for Good started a Web site, Sixdegrees.org. The site includes a feature to search more than 1 million charities.

Visitors also can see which charities celebrities are supporting financially. And there’s a link to an eBay site where people can bid on “celebrity swag” from the Sundance Film Festival.

“A lot of people are really, really strongly connected to what celebrities are doing,” Bacon said. “So why not have a place where you could also find out what charities they care about, what causes are important to them, and be able to donate right there?”

Does anyone know anything about these two? I just love her in The Closer and they seem to have a great relationship...but you never know.

From the BI section:


Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick?

One of the nicest, most genuine and non-Hollywoodish couples I've ever met. Seriously, the sweetest peeps around and very close as a couple. Granted, it's been a couple of years since I've had a chance to observe them up close and personal and you never know. But I'd be incredibly shocked if this BI had anything to do with them.


I've always heard great things about them--key among them that they're definitely the more normal of the Hollywood stars/couples.

I really like them. Aside from professional adult stuff, a college friend went to high school with Kyra and just adored her. It's got to be someone else on this BI.

Six degrees of separation – from Bernard Madoff to Kevin Bacon

By Stephen Foley in New York
Thursday, 1 January 2009



Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon put money into Bernard Madoff's scheme

The actor Kevin Bacon and his wife, Kyra Sedgwick, have become the latest celebrities to admit they are victims of Bernard Madoff, the Wall Street swindler.


The list of rich and powerful figures affected by the finance industry's biggest ever fraud is still growing by the day, three weeks after Madoff confessed to the FBI that he had lost $50bn (£34bn) of his clients' money.

Bacon's publicist, Allen Eichhorn, admitted the couple had become ensnared in the fraud, responding to rumours whipping through Hollywood. But it is still unclear how much the pair may have lost. "I can confirm that they had investments with Mr Madoff," Mr Eichhorn said, "no further specifics or comment beyond that."

Hollywood has not been spared the fallout from the Madoff scandal, which has affected a broad swathe of people, from the super-rich families of the US east coast, Latin America and Europe, to modest Jewish charities and Connecticut firefighters whose pension funds were funnelled into Madoff's pyramid scheme. He told the FBI that, instead of investing the money, he had been paying existing clients with money taken in from new investors, and now there was practically nothing left.

His lawyers said yesterday he would comply with a court's New Year's Eve deadline to set out what remains of the money and his own assets, including luxury homes along the east coast.

The Wunderkinder Foundation, set up by director Steven Spielberg to distribute grants to environmental and children's health causes, among others, was the first to admit to losing money with Madoff. Mr Spielberg's long-time business partner, Jerry Katzenberg, founder of DreamWorks animation, was also hit, along with Eric Roth, who wrote the screenplay for Forrest Gump.

New victims keep emerging. Yesterday, Wall Street was surprised to learn that one of its most savvy economic pundits was also taken in by Madoff and his network of unsuspecting fundraisers. Henry Kaufman, who came to be known as Dr Doom for his gloomy economic projections, said he had put "a couple of per cent" of his net worth with the fraudster.

Major financial institutions have also been hit. The Austrian government took over Vienna's Medici bank, which was brought to the brink of collapse by $2.1bn in Madoff losses.

And the pain is still being felt in Palm Beach, the luxury Florida resort where Madoff solicited funds from members of his country club and golfing partners. Wowed by his claims of two decades of solid investment returns, many people put their entire fortune with him.

A $10,000 statue of two lifeguards, which was stolen earlier this week from the grounds of Madoff's Palm Beach mansion, was found yesterday in nearby bushes with a note attached. It read: "Bernie the Swindler, Lesson: Return stolen property to rightful owners. Signed by - The Educators."

The losses faced by Bacon and Sedgwick will be a blow to a couple who have largely shunned the Hollywood limelight, preferring to spend most of their time in New York, where they have raised two teenage children. They are not touted among best paid or most powerful lists of stars but have seen their earning power rise dramatically in the past few years.

Bacon's roles in numerous diverse films inspired the parlour game "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon", where players try to connect any actor to him in as few links as possible. Last year, he helped set up SixDegrees.org, a website that encourages social networking between philanthropists and charities.

Bacon Brushes Off Broadway Return In Footloose

KEVIN BACON has pre-warned Broadway bosses not to bother offering him a role in a revival of his hit movie musical FOOTLOOSE - because he's "not interested".

The actor starred as Ren MCCormack in the original 1984 film, about a Chicago, Illinois-bred teenager who moves to a small town that has banned dancing and rock music.

The movie was turned into a musical, which hit the New York stage back in 1998.

There has been talk of a new production - but Bacon won't be involved.
He tells the New York Daily News, "I'm not interested in doing that. They did one, and that's enough for me."

Dear Ted:
I know there are plenty of fake relationships in Hollywood. I know you and your wonderful husband are the real deal, but can you please tell me that at least one lovable couple out there is together because they want to be and not for PR? Kevin and Kyra? Courteney and David? Nicole and Keith seem like a long shot...

Kevin Bacon Grilled By Family

Kevin Bacon
admits he loses all family arguments.

The 'Taking Chance' star - who has an 18-year-old daughter Sosie and a 20-year-old son Travis with his actress wife Kyra Sedgwick - admits he has such a soft spot for his daughter that it sometimes becomes a struggle to parent her because she can argue back so well.

He said: "With my daughter I would say she usually wins the debates, especially in the last few years. When they are really little you can sort of play it off, but when they turn into teenagers you start to give them the heads up about their opinions and talk about things with them. But in the end she usually wins."

However, the 51-year-old actor insists he can be a tough disciplinarian when he needs to be.

He added to People.com: "We just spoke about curfews tonight, and she said to me, 'Do I have a curfew?' And I said, 'Yeah, I think you do!' And she said, 'I don't think so. I haven't had a curfew for years.' So we had a debate about it, and I won."

Kevin believes his daughter got her argumentative streak from her mother, who he always ends up admitting defeat to.

He said: "She usually wins. She's a very good arguer. She always makes good solid points, and I just nod and agree."
