I still love Kyra Sedgwick. I still miss The Closer, although I have to admit… Major Crimes is not bad at all. It’s much better than what I was expecting, and I like how they’re broadening the supporting cast. Still, I miss Kyra/Brenda’s Georgia accent and I miss her interrogations. Sigh… anyway, Kyra covers the new issue of Good Housekeeping, and she’s talking about her marriage to Kevin Bacon. I love Kyra and The Bacon. I want to believe that they’re in this for forever. They’ve already made it 24 years!!!! And Kyra tells Good Housekeeping how they’ve made it work – basically, she’s still hot for The Bacon and he still tells her she’s beautiful:
Ever wonder what Kyra Sedgwick finds sexy? Her husband of 24 years, Kevin Bacon, has it all figured out.
“He is so honorable. He is so ethically true. He has high moral standards, and he doesn’t lie and he doesn’t cheat – and I find that sexy!” the actress, 47, says in the January issue of Good Housekeeping.
“I don’t know how he does it, but he always makes me feel like I’m the most beautiful woman in the room – the only girl in the room,” she says of her relationship with Bacon, 54, whom she married in 1988.
“He says ‘Honey, you look beautiful. You are sexy!’ Always, always, always!”
While their love has lasted over decades – an eternity in Hollywood – the couple is experiencing a kind of “second-honeymoon” now that their children Travis, 23, and Sosie, 20, have left the nest.
“There’s a lot more walking around the house naked,” Sedgwick says.
But it’s clearly more than occasional nudity that keeps their love alive.
“I am constantly in awe of Kevin’s levelheadedness and his lack of ‘crazy,’ ” she says.
I’ll admit it – if this was any other married couple and the wife was telling a magazine that her husband is “so honorable. He is so ethically true. He has high moral standards, and he doesn’t lie and he doesn’t cheat,” I would be rolling my eyes and asking what she had to prove. But since it’s Kyra and The Bacon… I think I believe her. I think The Bacon only has eyes for his wife and he would never fool around. And I think she would do absolutely anything to make him happy. Could it be that Kyra and Kevin are the absolute perfect couple?!?
