Why Kevin Bacon & Kyra Sedgwick’s Marriage is Going Strong After 30 Years
In Hollywood, actors Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick have defied the odds and are like marriage royalty. The happy couple has been married for 30 years and everyone wants to know their secret that keeps the flames alive. While Bacon and Sedgwick suggest that people shouldn’t take marriage advice from Hollywood actors, over the years they have highlighted a few of the many strengths of their relationship.
One of their strengths in an undeniable chemistry. In a candid interview back in 2012 with Redbook, Sedgwick explained, “Sex is really important. That desire is there. “The essence of it hasn’t really changed. When he walks into a room, I’m still… I mean, my heart gets a little fluttery and I think, Oh! He’s so cute. He’s so hot. That’s literally the first thing I think.”
Despite the obvious chemistry, they both admit that marriage takes a lot of work. “Everyone has marital struggles—I don’t buy the ‘Oh, it’s so hard, actors being married,'” Sedgwick added. “Man, marriage is hard for everyone.” When the couple is asked on the red carpet how they manage to stay together, it irritates Sedgwick. “I don’t think our relationship is more or less difficult; I just think you both make the commitment and you make it work.”
