Kevin Bacon is finally breaking his silence on the hellish at-home bikini wax he gave wife Kyra Sedgwick during quarantine.
On Wednesday’s episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” the 62-year-old “Footloose” actor explained, “I’m one of those people that is sort of cocky enough to think I can probably learn to do anything … I thought, ‘How hard could this be?’”
Very, as it turns out. “You need to leave it to the trained professionals. Otherwise, it can get really, really, frighteningly dangerous,” Bacon said.
“She was a little bit mad at me. But it’s okay. I gave it the old college try.”
Back in January, Sedgwick, 55, shared her side of the sticky story with Kimmel, describing the experience as “agonizing” despite her husband being an “incredibly handy” guy who “knows how to fix stuff.”
“I’m not saying it was a disaster, but the fact that we did not have to go to the emergency room was just an absolute miracle,” she recalled.
Fortunately, it sounds like the harrowing experience was but a minor speed bump for the couple, who have been married for 32 years.
