There are, as the parlor game goes, only six degrees of separation between actor Kevin Bacon and everyone in show business, which makes him a welcome voice on connecting during these days of forced separation.
Bacon took to Instagram to introduce the #IStayHomeFor effort, saying, “Right now, like people around the world, I’m staying home. Because it saves lives, and it is the only way we’re going to slow down the spread of this coronavirus.
“… Every one of us has someone who is worth staying home for.”
Bacon said he’s staying home for Kyra Sedgwick, his actress wife. Then he challenged some of his celebrity friends — and everyone else in the world with whom he’s connected — to post their own #IStayHomeFor pictures and videos.
