Kyra Sedgwick reveals husband Kevin Bacon wasn't 'her first choice' in awkward moment - fans react
Kyra Sedgwick and her husband Kevin Bacon have shared an hilariously awkward argument which reveals that he wasn't her first choice to act in her new film Space Oddity.
The Footloose actor, who recently celebrated the couple's daughter Sosie's birthday with an adorable throwback photo, shared a video of him and his wife teasingly discussing the revelation to his Instagram on Friday.
Kevin first discovered that he wasn't Kyra's first choice during an appearance on The Jimmy Kimmel Show several months ago, and clearly the matter has been on his mind ever since! See how his wife responded to him finally questioning her about it in the video below.

As Kevin tried to guess who Kyra had in mind rather than him for the role of the father in her film, which centers on a man trying to get insurance so that he can travel to Mars, fans chimed in via the comments of the post with their own suggestions.
One person suggested The Closer actress might have had Matt Damon in mind.

Meanwhile, a different follower took a more detective-like approach to the situation, deducing: "Hear me out … what if it was Jimmy Kimmel and that’s how he knew?"
While Kyra has been keeping a relatively low profile on social media recently as she works on promoting Space Oddity, which premieres March 31, earlier this February she and her husband gave another sweet insight into their loving almost 35-year-strong relationship.
