In 2007, he created SixDegrees.org, a charitable foundation.[5]

Early life and education Bacon, the youngest of six children, was born and raised in a close-knit family in Philadelphia.[2] His mother, Ruth Hilda (née Holmes; 1916–1991), taught at an elementary school and was a liberal activist,[2] while his father, Edmund Norwood Bacon (May 2, 1910 – October 14, 2005), was a well-respected architect and a prominent Philadelphian who was Executive Director of the Philadelphia
Philadelphia
City Planning Commission for many years.[6] At age 16, in 1975, Bacon won a full scholarship to and attended the Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania
Governor's School for the Arts at Bucknell University,[7] a state-funded five-week arts program at which he studied theater under Dr. Glory Van Scott. The experience solidified Bacon's passion for the arts.[5][6] Acting career Early work Bacon left home at age 17 to pursue a theater career in New York City, where he appeared in a production at the Circle in the Square
Circle in the Square
Theater School. "I wanted life, man, the real thing", he later recalled to Nancy Mills of Cosmopolitan. "The message I got was 'The arts are it. Business is the devil's work. Art and creative expression are next to godliness.' Combine that with an immense ego and you wind up with an actor."[8] Bacon's debut in the fraternity comedy National Lampoon's Animal House
Animal House
(1978) did not lead to the fame he had sought, and Bacon returned to waiting tables and auditioning for small roles in theater.[6] He briefly worked on the television soap operas Search for Tomorrow (1979) and Guiding Light
Guiding Light
(1980–81) in New York. 1980s In 1980, he had a prominent role in the slasher film Friday the 13th.[9] Some of his early stage work included Getting Out, performed at New York's Phoenix Theater, and Flux, at Second Stage Theatre during their 1981–1982 season.[10] In 1982, he won an Obie Award
Obie Award
for his role in Forty Deuce,[11] and soon afterward he made his Broadway debut in Slab Boys, with then-unknowns Sean Penn
Sean Penn
and Val Kilmer. However, it was not until he portrayed Timothy Fenwick that same year in Barry Levinson's film Diner – costarring Steve Guttenberg, Daniel Stern, Mickey Rourke, Tim Daly, and Ellen Barkin – that he made an indelible impression on film critics and moviegoers alike.[12] Bolstered by the attention garnered by his performance in Diner, Bacon starred in the box-office smash Footloose (1984).[10] Richard Corliss of TIME likened Footloose to the James Dean
James Dean
classic Rebel Without a Cause and the old Mickey Rooney/ Judy Garland
Judy Garland
musicals, commenting that the film includes "motifs on book burning, mid-life crisis, AWOL parents, fatal car crashes, drug enforcement, and Bible Belt vigilantism."[13] To prepare for the role, Bacon enrolled at a high school as a transfer student named "Ren McCormick" and studied teenagers before leaving in the middle of the day.[6][14] Bacon earned strong reviews for Footloose,[15] and he appeared on the cover of People magazine soon after its release. Bacon's critical and box office success led to a period of typecasting in roles similar to the two he portrayed in Diner and Footloose, and he had difficulty shaking this on-screen image. For the next several years he chose films that cast him against either type and experienced, by his own estimation, a career slump. In 1988, he starred in John Hughes' comedy She's Having a Baby[10] and the following year he was in another comedy called The Big Picture.[16] 1990s In 1990, Bacon had two successful roles. He played a character who saved his town from under-the-earth "graboid" monsters in the comedy/horror film Tremors,[17] and he portrayed an earnest medical student experimenting with death in Joel Schumacher's Flatliners.[10] In Bacon's next project he starred opposite Elizabeth Perkins
Elizabeth Perkins
in He Said, She Said. Despite lukewarm reviews and low audience turnout, He Said, She Said was illuminating for Bacon. Required to play a character with sexist attitudes, he admitted that the role was not that large a stretch for him.[10] By 1991, Bacon began to give up the idea of playing leading men in big-budget films and to remake himself as a character actor. "The only way I was going to be able to work on 'A' projects with really 'A' directors was if I wasn't the guy who was starring", he confided to The New York Times
The New York Times
writer Trip Gabriel. "You can't afford to set up a $40 million movie if you don't have your star."[18] He performed that year as gay prostitute Willie O'Keefe in Oliver Stone's JFK[19] and went on to play a prosecuting attorney in the military courtroom drama A Few Good Men.[20] Later that year he returned to the theater to play in Spike Heels, directed by Michael Greif.[10] In 1994, Bacon earned a Golden Globe nomination for his role in The River Wild,[10] opposite Meryl Streep. He described the film to Chase in Cosmopolitan as a "grueling shoot", in which "every one of us fell out of the boat at one point or another and had to be saved". His next film, Murder in the First, earned him the Broadcast Film Critic's Association Award in 1995,[10] the same year that he starred in the blockbuster hit Apollo 13.[21] Bacon played a trademark dark role once again in Sleepers
Sleepers
(1996).[22] This part starkly contrasted with his appearance in the lighthearted romantic comedy, Picture Perfect (1997).[10] Bacon made his debut as a director with the television film Losing Chase (1996), which was nominated for three Golden Globe Awards, and won one.[23] Bacon again resurrected his oddball mystique that year as a mentally-challenged houseguest in Digging to China[10] and as a disc jockey corrupted by payola in Telling Lies in America.[10] As the executive producer of Wild Things (1998), Bacon reserved a supporting role for himself and went on to star in Stir of Echoes (1999), directed by David Koepp.[24] 2000s

ratings board decision to rate the film "NC-17" rather than the preferable "R". Bacon commented: "I don't get it, when I see films (that) are extremely violent, extremely objectionable sometimes in terms of the roles that women play, slide by with an R, no problem, because the people happen to have more of their clothes on."[27] Bacon was again acclaimed for a dark starring role playing an offending pedophile on parole in The Woodsman (2004), for which he was nominated for best actor and received the Independent Spirit Award.[28] He appeared in the HBO

Cooper.[32] The production was held at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre

and broadcast on YouTube to raise money for the American Foundation for Equal Rights.[33][34] From 2013 to 2015, Bacon starred as Ryan Hardy in the FOX television series The Following.[35] In 2013, he won a Saturn Award for Best Actor on Television for that role.[36] In 2015, he said in a Huffington Post

interview[37] and several magazines reported he would like to return to the Tremors franchise.[citation needed] However, Bacon doesn't appear in Tremors 5: Bloodline (2015). Advertising work Beginning in 2012, Bacon has appeared in a major advertising campaign for the EE mobile network in the United Kingdom, based on the Six Degrees concept and his various film roles.[38][39] In 2015, he became a commercial spokesperson for the U.S. egg industry.[40] Personal life Bacon has been married to actress Kyra Sedgwick

since September 4, 1988; they met on the set of the PBS

version of Lanford Wilson's play Lemon Sky. He has said: "The time I was hitting what I considered to be bottom was also the time I met my wife, our kids were born, good things were happening. And I was able to keep supporting myself; that always gave me strength."[8] Bacon and Sedgwick have starred together in Pyrates, Murder in the First, The Woodsman, and Loverboy. They have two children, Travis Sedgwick (b. 1989) and Sosie Ruth (b. 1992). The family resides on the Upper West Side

of Manhattan.[41] Bacon was previously in a five-year relationship with actress Tracy Pollan, in the 1980s.[42] Bacon has spoken out for the separation of church and state,[43][44] and told The Times
The Times
in 2005 that he did not "believe in God."[45] However, he has also said that he is not anti-religion.[46] Bacon and Sedgwick appeared in will.i.am's video "It's a New Day", which was released following Barack Obama's 2008 presidential win. The pair lost part of their savings in the Ponzi scheme

with Henry Louis Gates, that they are ninth cousins, once removed.[49] They also appeared in a video[50] promoting the "Bill of Reproductive Rights", supporting among other things a woman's right to choose and have access to birth control.[51] Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon Main article: Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon Bacon is the subject of the trivia game titled Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, based on the idea that, due to his prolific screen career covering a diverse range of genres, any Hollywood actor can be linked to another in a handful of steps based on their association with Bacon. The name of the game derives from the idea of six degrees of separation. Though he was initially dismayed by the game, the meme stuck, and Bacon eventually embraced it, forming the charitable initiative SixDegrees.org, a social networking site intended to link people and charities to each other.[52] The measure of proximity to Bacon has been mathematically formalized as the Bacon number

and can be referenced at websites including Oracle of Bacon, which is in turn based upon Internet Movie Database

data. Google even added a feature to their search engine, whereby searching for an actor's name followed by the words "Bacon Number" will show the ways in which that actor is connected to Kevin Bacon.[53] A similar measurement exists in the mathematics community, where one measures how far one is removed from co-writing a mathematical paper with the famous mathematician Paul Erdős. This is done by means of the Erdős number, which is 0 for Paul Erdős
Paul Erdős
himself, 1 for someone who co-wrote an article with him, 2 for someone who co-wrote with someone who co-wrote with him, etc. People have combined the Bacon number and the Erdős number

to form the Erdős–Bacon number, which is the sum of the two.[54] Music Kevin formed a band called The Bacon Brothers
