Kevin Bacon dropped by "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" where they talked about his wife, Kyra Sedgwick. Sedgwick is apparently terrified of talking food. Bacon said she has to leave the room if she sees commercials featuring talking food, like the classic California Raisins shorts.
Her phobia actually impacted a professional decision he made once. He chose to turn down what he said was a well paying spot in an M&M's commercial. Bacon said he was on board to do the commercial until he was told that he would be a giant Peanut M&M.
"I thought about it, and I said I can’t do that to my wife, because my marriage is more important," Bacon said. "I really think she would've left me."
Luckily, Bacon has found success in work without having to play any talking food. In fact, there is no talking food anywhere to be found on his new Fox drama, "The Following." But there are plenty of viewers. "The Following" is one of the top-rated freshman shows of the season.
Keep up with Kevin Bacon on "The Following," Mondays at 9 p.m. EST on Fox. "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" airs every weeknight at 11:35 p.m. EST on NBC.
