- Kyra Sedgwick says it’s “weird” to film sex scenes with her husband Kevin Bacon.
- The pair’s first love scene was in the 1991 film “Pyrates” about a couple whose love sets things on fire.
- Sedgwick’s latest film is a romantic comedy she directed called “Space Oddity.”
Despite being married for more than three decades, Kyra Sedgwick says it’s strange to film sex scenes with her husband Kevin Bacon.
“It’s much harder,” she said. “It’s weird because we’re always like, ‘Is this real or is it not?”
The two were first intimate on-camera in the 1991 romantic comedy “Pyrates.”
In the film, Sam (Sedgwick) and Ari (Bacon) are a couple with chemistry so hot, things around them actually catch fire.
“As an actor, you sometimes have these dreams when you start a job where you’re sleeping and they’re filming you. With Pyrates, I was [sleeping] with my husband and they were filming it! It’s like, ‘This can’t be real — I’m having a dream,'” Sedgwick said.
As for her latest film, “Space Oddity,” Sedgwick and Bacon worked together again, but not as intimately, as she directed the film and Bacon acted.
“Space Oddity” follows Alex McAllister (Kyle Allen), a young man torn between going to Mars or pursuing a romantic relationship here on Earth.
Alexandra Shipp plays Daisy Taylor, McAllister’s love interest in the film, and Bacon portrays McAllister’s father, Jeff.
Acting aside, the couple has been married for 35 years and and share two children together: Travis, 33, and Sosie, 31. Both children have entered show business with Travis as a composer and Sosie as an actress.
In a March 2023 interview with People, Sedgwick opened up about what makes their marriage work.
“We’ve always been each other’s biggest support and fans,” she said.
“A sense of humor is crucial,” she added. “He is very freaking funny.”
“Space Oddity” is now available to stream on Amazon.
