In support of equality, Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick are shaking hands and taking a stand.
In a video posted on Instagram on Sunday, the married actors expressed their support for the drag community amid the adoption of legislation that forbids drag artists from performing in public areas. The couple can be seen dancing to the Taylor Swift song “Karma,” which is from her most recent album “Midnights,” while sporting matching T-shirts that read “Drag is an art and drag is a right.”
Bacon stated, “Drag bans are bad karma,” and shared a link to his campaign in favour of the Drag Defence Fund of the ACLU. “We must support drag performers and the LGBTQIA+ community. … #DragIsARight”
In the film, Bacon, 64, and Sedgwick, 57, swirl and step rhythmically in front of the camera while they display the pro-drag message on their graphic t-shirts.
Bigotry won’t be tolerated, said Bacon. Kindness towards one another in the comments is requested.
After Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee signed a bill limiting drag performances on public land that the state legislature approved last month into law, Bacon and Sedgwick became the most recent celebrities to do so, joining Madonna, Maren Morris, and Lizzo. In accordance with its terminology, “adult-oriented” entertainment that is regarded damaging to minors is forbidden, including performances by “male and female impersonators.”
Regarding shooting sex scenes with her husband Kevin Bacon, Kyra Sedgiwck says: This cannot be true,
Although Sedgwick and Bacon get along well both on and off the screen, the actress admitted their chemistry dipped when they had to shoot private sequences together for a movie in the early 1990s.
They co-starred in the 1991 romantic comedy “Pyrates,” which centres on a couple who has sex-induced pyrokinetic talents. Sedgwick claimed in an interview with Yahoo Entertainment that was published on Friday that she and Bacon were initially unconcerned about playing a relationship.
We didn’t consider whether it was strange for us to make a sex comedy. Sedgwick was summoned back to the store. We had just gotten married and had our first child, so it was hilarious to think of us as a couple who had such intense sex that the room spontaneously caught on fire.
The blurring of the barriers between truth and art on set, according to Sedgwick, proved to be “much harder” than she had imagined.
“It’s strange because we are constantly asking ourselves, ‘Is this real or is it not?'” As an actor, you occasionally experience dreams where you are sleeping while being filmed, according to Sedgwick. “When they were filming ‘Pyrates,’ my spouse and I were (sleeping). I’m thinking, “This can’t be real; I’m dreaming.”
