Pat Gallagher: Kevin Bacon On Marriage, 'The Following' And His Greatest Fear
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Kevin Bacon is a superstar. I know this because his publicist put the call through to me for our phone interview. I haven't had a celebrity's publicist put a call through to me since David Letterman's publicist did it circa 1988. I think the touch-tone dialing system was new then, and the little beeps that the numbers made as you hit each one must have scared Dave.
But here's the difference. While it took Dave about an hour and a half to come to the phone, it took Kevin about one-tenth of a second. The Footloose actor was much, much, much... much easier to interview. And he was everything I thought he would be: polite, kind, nice, humble, patient, honest, a true gentleman -- and a good sport!
Bacon was happy to speak with The Huffington Post about his Fox TV show -- The Following -- six degrees of himself, his beautiful wife -- actress Kyra Sedgwick (the two are celebrating 25 years of marriage this year), what he's afraid of, his music and his basic instincts.
