I think it’s pretty safe to say that Kevin Bacon‘s heyday is over. Like, good run and all, bro, but now’s the time when you enjoy all that Footloose money and chillax a bit, you know? No such luck, unfortunately – he’s all over T-Mobile UK ads and the subway, apparently, where he likes to play Angry Birds on his phone and be recognized by fans.
From The Observer:
“Fame is very much a double-edged sword. I had a prosthetic disguise made, because I wanted to see what it would be like not to be recognized. I didn’t like it very much — no one was nice to me. People didn’t bother me, but they also looked right through me, [but] actors want to be famous.”
I can appreciate that candor, but a prosthetic? I mean, you’re not Oprah (Oprah is the most famous person I can think of, shut up). Do Kevin a favor – if you see him on the train, give him a little wave and ask him what level of Angry Birds he’s on. He’ll thank you, I’m sure.
