Kevin Bacon's vagabond life

Kevin Bacon and his wife Kyra Sedgwick live like "vagabonds".

The 'Following' actor and his actress spouse - who have two children together, Travis, 23, and Sosie, 20 - are so used to travelling for their respective careers, they have bags packed and ready to go at all times.

He said: "Even though we've got a real solid thing and we are homebodies, we're also vagabonds. We've had the suitcase packed our entire lives together and go from job to job to job, to this town and that town."

The 54-year-old star added that his jet-setting lifestyle in film made him reluctant to do a TV show, but his wife - who starred on TV drama 'The Closer' for seven years - helped him overcome his attitude.

He explained to Britain's OK! magazine: "I started acting at a time when television wasn't where you wanted to go if you wanted to make movies. But I turned around four or five years ago and said, 'What are you doing? You love TV, your wife is on a television show, you're directing television, when you get together with your friends, that's what you're talking about', so I threw my hat into the ring.

"She said some really obvious stuff such as, 'Think long and hard because if it works, you're going to be playing this guy for a long time'. In some ways that was one of the biggest things that frightened me. The idea of playing one character for a long time was a frightening thing."
