Kevin Bacon has been married a long time, but is that good or bad?
With over three decades of marriage under their belts, Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick know a thing or two about silly disagreements.
And with their wealth of marriage knowledge, the A-list couple kicked off Jimmy Kimmel Live ‘s new segment, “Dumb Couple Fights,” which sees stars reenacting real arguments between romantic partners across the country.
Benjamin, a Jimmy Kimmel Live staffer who the scene was based on, set up the skit’s premise: “My boyfriend Chris came back from the store with two pints of ice cream: cookies and cream, which we both love, and mint chocolate chip, which he loves and I hate. But when I went to serve myself some cookies and cream he insisted on sharing that pint, because it was obvious he was just trying to get more for himself.”
From there, Bacon and Sedgwick took things into their own hands, sitting down with their own bowls of ice cream before beginning to bicker.
The duo — who have been married since 1988 — took the segment to the next level when Bacon decided to grab his ice cream with his bare hands, throwing it into Sedgwick’s bowl.
“Wow, that was a heck of a way to begin this,” host Jimmy Kimmel, 52, said after watching the scene. “I don’t know if you can get an Emmy for that, but I sure hope you do. That was really beautiful.”
