Kevin Bacon Quotes

I really believe that all of us have a lot of darkness in our souls. Anger, rage, fear, sadness. I don't think that's only reserved for people who have horrible upbringings. I think it really exists and is part of the human condition. I think in the course of your life you figure out ways to deal with that.
I have a natural swagger.

I've been in silly movies and romantic movies and historic movies.
I used to live on Riverside Park in New York, on the Upper West Side.
Gary Oldman is impossible to steal a movie from. He's such a great actor, he's off the hook. I love him.

I think we all have a lot of darkness in our bellies. As an actor, the challenge of tapping into that, reaching down into that sadness or anger, is very therapeutic.
People work so hard, and I want to keep that energy up, and you can spread that if you're the actor. But I'm also not able to turn it on and off like a faucet. A lot of what I'm called upon to play is violent or angry. When I'm messing around with the crew and making jokes, I remember, 'Oh, this is the guy I normally am.'
If you take me out of it, I find 'six degrees' to be a beautiful concept that we should try to live by. It's about compassion and responsibility for everyone on the planet.
I'd love to be a pop idol. Of course, my groupies are now between 40 and 50.
Any idiot can get laid when they're famous. That's easy. It's getting laid when you're not famous that takes some talent.
