Kevin Bacon said he doesn’t like being normal. 

July 7, 2024 – Kevin created his latest role all by himself. He underwent a task to see what it is like to be ‘invisible’ for a day. 

“I had to wait in line to, I don’t know, buy a f… (bleep) coffee or whatever. I was like, this sucks. I want to go back to being famous,” the actor said. He opened up recently in an interview with Vanity magazine in July, about “wanting to see what it was like to be normal.” 

The hollow man actor discusses that he had the desire to be unrecognizable. However, he said, “nobody recognized me.” It wasn’t long after his experiment that he wanted to return to his celebrity life. 

The Hollywood star who has been acting for decades, first blazed into stardom and became a household name from starring in the movie Footloose in 1984.
