Kevin Bacon: Greens keep me young

Kevin Bacon has become a “kale-a-holic” thanks to his wife Kyra Sedgwick.

The 57-year-old actor has been married to Kyra Sedgwick since 1988.

And his other half keeps him looking ageless with the healthy food she prepares.

“I’m not eternally young. I don’t know. I’m not sure. Whatever. I try my best to eat kale. Eat more kale. My wife is a kale-a-holic,” Kevin told USA Today. “There will be kale. That’s a good movie.”

Kevin has previously spoken about how he avoids wrinkling.

The star thinks a balanced point of view is key, as panicking creates all sorts of aging signs.

“Stress, anger, and unspoken pain can really take a toll on your face,” he noted during an interview with America’s Esquire magazine. “I've got dead friends who just didn't take care of themselves.”

Kevin also admitted fame makes him conscious of his looks in fascinating ways.

The star finds himself slightly disturbed by how people react to him in public.

“That being said, it’s a weird thing to never be able to leave the house without having someone look at you, judge you,” Kevin told Haute Living. “‘You’re taller than I thought, uglier, older, fatter than I thought.’ One of my favourite quotes that someone said to me is, ‘You look so much better in person than you do in real life.’ It makes no sense right?

“When I did the prosthetic makeup thing, it was almost disturbing to me. People kind of looked right through me and weren’t nice to me. It didn’t feel that good, to tell you the truth. I’ve had [fame] for so long that I almost can’t really get my head around what my life would be like without it.”
