Kevin Norwood Bacon (born July 8, 1958) is an American actor and musician whose notable films include Footloose (1984), A Few Good Men (1992), Apollo 13 (1995). He currently stars on the Fox television series The Following.

Bacon has won a Golden Globe Award, three Screen Actors Guild Awards, and was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award. He was named by The Guardian as one of the best actors never to have received an Academy Award nomination. In 2003, Bacon received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Bacon, one of six children, was born and raised in a close-knit family in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His mother, Ruth Hilda (née Holmes; 1916–1991), taught at an elementary school and was a liberal activist, while his father, Edmund Norwood Bacon (May 2, 1910 – October 14, 2005), was a well-respected architect and a prominent Philadelphian who had been Executive Director of the Philadelphia City Planning Commission for many years.

Bacon has been married to actress Kyra Sedgwick since September 4, 1988. They have two children, Travis Sedgwick (b. 1989) and Sosie Ruth (b. 1992). The family resides on the Upper West Side of New York. They learned in 2011 via their appearance on the PBS TV show Finding Your Roots with Henry Louis Gates that he and Sedgwick are 9th cousins, once removed.[1]

There are documented relationships to Senator Bob Dole, Richard Nixon, Johnny Carson, James Mott, and Walter Chrysler.[2] Other sites document relationships to George W/HW Bush, and many many other presidents and celebrities.[3]

Why aren't Kevin and Kyra connected on Wikitree?
On a yellow privacy profile, privacy extends to any relationship to a living person. So a relationship to a living spouse is protected.
