Kevin Bacon is Tired of Meat-Related Name Jokes

The actor has an unusual name, that’s for sure – almost as unusual as Benedict Cumberbatch – and he’s learnt to deal with the jokes that come with his name. Delicious bacon-related jokes. He says he’s been listening to them for his entire life and feels it’s a “losing battle” so he’s just had to get over it:

”You have the last name Bacon, stuff comes up. Bacon, food jokes. When you spend your life dealing with it, to keep denying it and get irritated by it, I was fighting a losing battle.”

Kevin has one of the longest marriages in Hollywood – he’s been with wife Kyra Sedgewick for 26 years. When asked what his advice for keeping a marriage alive is, he says to simply not take any advice from other celebrities because they clearly don’t know what they’re doing:

”Whatever you do, don’t listen to celebrities on advice on how to stay married. That’s my secret.”

Back in 2008, Kevin lost a fortune to┬áBenie Madoff’s fraudulent Ponzi scheme and he says the couple got over the big loss by having sex:

”We kind of went, ‘Holy s**t. Let’s… I don’t know. Let’s have sex or something. It’s free!”
