Kyra Sedgwick: Kevin Bacon ‘has high moral standards, he doesn’t lie or cheat’

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.

[From People]

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?!?

    Aww. I’m slightly in luff with The Bacon at the moment because of the EE adverts he’s doing for the 4G network.
    It’s so hilarious listening to him come out with all these British pop culture references when he probably hasn’t a clue what Coronation Street is 🙂

    • gloaming says:

      Agreed. The Jedward one was on just now and the end where he’s sat on a sofa with his Jedward quiff is adorable…

  2. Laurabb says:

    I love them! I do always worry when a spouse btalks about how their other half does not cheat, it iis tempting fate.

    • jc126 says:

      Yes, I agree, tempting fate. It’s possible he doesn’t cheat, totally possible, but one never knows, you know?

      • Liv says:

        But with some men you do know – there are men who are not able to lie 😉 Thankfully.

      • Lishka says:

        I agree. My husband is a lot like how she describes KB. Rock solid…decent, honest…heck, he puts me to shame! Lol. My friends all say, “Shit, if you guys don’t work out, it will be because its YOUR fault!” Lol.

    • brin says:

      Yeah…that’s my reaction too, but these two do seem like the real deal.

    • Jayna says:

      I couldn’t blast that in an interview. He was a movie star away on sets for twenty something years. A one-night stand might have happened. I would hate to tempt fate also by someone reading the article and selling their story to the Enquirer.

    • CTgirl says:

      It’s not tempting fate, either he’s not a cheater or is/was. If someone sells a story to the Enquirer and it proves to be true then he is/was a cheater. I like the fact that his wife is so sure of her husband and she feels secure enough to make such a declaration. Rare not only in HW but anywhere.

      • stinky says:

        uhh… believe me, its not rare at all for someone to believe that their partner is true. its the actual fidelity that’s the rarity. it may even be the unicorn. people are nasty! partners never cheat ……until they DO …”it just happened”

      • evyn says:

        PLOT TWIST: She knows he has cheated, but wants to come off as loving & trusting wife before WHAM!!!
        Just kidding. They seem like the real deal.

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      Yeah, I feel like that is almost asking people to dig up something…but maybe there really is not anything to dig up, in which case, great for them! It is lovely yo think there is a couple out there – ESP in HWood – that truly values fidelity and has lived by it for so long. Love it. I am rooting for them.

  3. marie says:

    I love them together, would hate if they ever seperated.

    And when she started as Brenda her accent was horrible, luckily it got better as the seasons went on..

  4. QQ says:

    *please dont break up, please please please please*

    • the original bellaluna says:

      *crosses fingers, joins QQ chanting* I think the reason this concerns me for them is that they were some guesses as to a few blinds over the last year or so.

      So I hope they are as strong as they sound!

  5. Shelly says:

    They really do seem completely down to earth and normal. If they lived next door to me, I could totally see going to their house for BBQs and such. They both just have this “everyman” vibe about them. Anyway, they are hot together, and it’s great they are still together. They seem to be on this journey together for life.

  6. MrsBPitt says:

    love…love…love…Kevin Bacon…his new show looks really interesting…I think he is such an underrated actor!

  7. hoya_chick says:

    I don’t mean to be cynical (Ha! who am I kidding?) but as soon as people start making these proclamations of love and devotion/fidelity it all comes crumbling down. I’m not a fan of either of them but I hope that I am wrong.

    Also, I never watched The Closer for the very reason you watched it lol, her voice and acting seemed way over the top and I love shows like that. What’s major crime about? I may give it a try.

    PS I had some trouble posting on some threads yesterday, didn’t do anything unusual but it would say my comment published but then it wouldn’t show up.

    • HadleyB says:

      This. Usually when one starts talking how happy they are, perfect, or renew vows — trouble ahead!

      I give a year or 2. lol

      Maybe the trouble just started but I am always iffy when people start spouting their perfect mate or happiness … and you never know when someone cheats — doesnt make him a bad person maybe it was just once and he lived with the guilt ( as he should) or maybe never… you just dont know but I hate when people say my __ would never lie, cheat, steal or hasnt or never will … you never know.

    • Raven says:

      Except they’ve been saying this for years.

  8. hannah says:

    I guess he already cheated , she jinxed it .

  9. Maria says:

    Thats practically telling the gossip world “make up some rumours to make me look stupid” enjoy this but dont talk about it publicly when you are a celeb.

  10. Mew says:

    I’ve admired Kevin for 17 years now and he has always seemed pretty down to earth, head in the right place kind of cool guy, so I could believe this true.

  11. bns says:

    I just had 2 pieces of bacon for breakfast.

    Anyway, they’re a cute couple. Kevin Bacon has always been so underrated as an actor.

  12. j.eyre says:

    Kevin Bacon + Kyra Sedwick and James McAvoy + Anne-Marie Duff = couples porn.

  13. Green Is Good says:

    Kevin Bacon: One of my “Forever Dongs”. 🙂

  14. Aubra says:

    MAAAAAN, listen….

    if they or Kevin and Phoebe break up, I am done!

    I totally get what she’s saying, in order for you to continue to find it in yourself to please your man, there is that part he is responsible for in not just making you feel sexy and beautiful, but making you feel like a lady, there is nothing like it. If he does that, you’re more than looking out for him in return.

    • L says:

      Seriously. If Kevin Klein and Phoebe Cates break up there’s no hope for anyone.

    • DeltaJuliet says:

      You stated that so perfectly. My husband is always telling me what I need to do to make him happy and I keep telling him, spend a little effort making me happy and you will never have to worry. I thought maybe that was silly, but I see that it’s not.

  15. CreamSoda says:

    Can’t believe their kids are adults and on their own now. I still pictured these two with little ones running around the house. They really have been together forever. I say good for them.

    • Belle says:

      Ha… I still picture Kevin Bacon in Footloose!

      Will never forget when that movie came out. I was in middle school, and my best friend somehow saw the movie without me. We were looking in one of the ‘Teen Beat’ or ‘Tiger Beat’ magazines one day, and she shows me a photo of KB, with the weird Footloose hair. I’m like… ‘um…no.’ She keeps saying… ‘um… YES, you have to see the movie!’. I stuck with the ‘um… no.’ for a while.. until I saw the movie!! LOL Have been ‘um… yes!’ ever since.

  16. Tazina says:

    It doesn’t hurt either that she still looks fabulous.

  17. Lulu says:

    I truly think that they are rock solid. It happens more often than people realize. Remember Patrick Swayze and Lisa? The key is commitwment and deep mutual respect. Devotion. And an understanding that sometimes it is going to take a little bit of work.

    • MrsBPitt says:

      What are you talking about…didn’t you read about Patrick falling head over heels for Kirstie Alley…(rolling my eyes and smirking)…

  18. Lipsy says:

    Ummm that’s pretty friggin’ sweet. She made my cynical, cold heart move a little.

  19. mzthirtyeight says:

    That’s so lovely. I am going to choose to believe it’s true.

  20. Sweet Dee says:

    I guess I’m one of the few who doesn’t believe in fate, or tempting it. I think they’re solid and if anything came out about him I wouldn’t give it much credence, and I like that she’s so confident in their relationship. I love him, but have to say I do not love his flesh-colored stache & beard combo.

  21. Chordy says:

    I just read an article in the NYT about how marriages have a passion slump after the two year mark, but when the kids get grown and out of the house, there’s a major passion surge, and you feel the passion for your partner how you did when the relationship was just starting, and that sounds like where these two are right now. Also, doesn’t it sort of seem like she’s saying that she’s the crazy one in the relationship? I’ll own that in my own marriage as well. I’m so glad that he’s so level headed and calm, because I am bat$hit crazy some days 🙂

    • Suzanne says:

      Seriously? A “passion surge” when the nest is empty. Somehow I suspect that there are equally as many couples who look across the dinner table..minus two or three children…and think…WTF was I thinking marrying this douchebag! I’m outta here on the next crosstown bus!

    • Belle says:

      “I’ll own that in my own marriage as well. I’m so glad that he’s so level headed and calm, because I am bat$hit crazy some days”

      Ha…. THIS.

  22. Ally says:

    He was fabulous in The River Wild, with Meryl Streep!!

  23. Samihami says:

    I’ve always loved them together, since they got married around the same time my DH and I got married. So far, so good for their marriage and for mine! 🙂

  24. Bowers says:

    We all lie.

  25. KellyinSeattle says:

    I love them both, but I would be mortified if my parents talked about walking around the house, when I was only 20. It’s sweet, but the kids are probably going, “Ew”. I loved him in Footloose.

  26. mkyarwood says:

    I think it could be tempting fate to say things like ‘never’, but, she IS gorgeous and maybe he just IS level headed and realizes he has a good relationship. They are not famewhores, so that helps. My husband and I have a tell each other everything pact. We both know when the other’s hormones are momentarily directed elsewhere. And, before we got married, we agreed to just TELL the other if things are changing. Sucks to hear at the time, but not half as much as everything falling apart after years of deceit. A real relationship is about trust, and if your entire faith in your partner is totally shaken if they try to talk to you about a crisis of conscience, maybe love is not what you have after all.

  27. Gwen says:

    Love her, love them. I hope they last 🙂

  28. Kat says:

    I love that she’s had so much success in recent years and still has a strong marriage, since she put her own promising career on hold for their family. Looks like it all paid off. Good for her.

  29. Brittney says:

    I know a lot of people say a Rita Wilson and Tom Hanks divorce would be the straw that broke the camel’s back re: true love existing in Hollywood. For me it’s these two. Kyra and Kevin are both so incredibly talented and giving, and the fact that they lost so much of their hard-earned money to that awful rat would probably have turned anyone else angry and bitter. But they’re not! Ahhh, so much love for them.

  30. JM says:

    I love this couple and am willing to give Kevin the benefit of the doubt. I still remember an interview he did where he spilled the secret to a long lasting marriage. “Keep the fights clean and the sex dirty.”

  31. Jennifer12 says:

    I love that there’s a naked second honeymoon happening!! They married and had kids kind of young, so they’re still sort of young enough to enjoy this new freedom and be hot for each other. Hope they stay this way.

  32. AMGirl says:

    Unfortunately Kyra Sedgewick is a raving lunatic. I was on a flight with her back in 1996 from Denver to New York and she was pitching a fit at the airport counter because they didn’t have a first class seat for her and she kept saying “do you even know who I am”?!?! Later when we got on the plane, she walked down the aisle and must not have realized until then that she was not only not given a first class seat, but they put her in a middle seat. She proceeded to have another temper tantrum on the plane.

    Also this: A few years ago, the local radio station here did a phone interview with her for her show and she was completely standoffish on the call, giving one word answers, acting pretty smug and obnoxious. When they concluded the interview, she must not have realized she hadn’t hung up, and you could hear her snarling “God, I hate these radio people and the stupid interviews they make me do”. That woman is not a nice lady.

    It’s refreshing to hear a story about a celeb behaving WELL 
