VIDEO: VIP Breakdown Interviews Kevin Bacon

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Movies, Charity, Videos,

Followers of VIP Breakdown, you are now (kinda) two degrees away from Kevin Bacon.

We recently had an opportunity to speak to the well-connected actor about his pair of wins for the HBO movie Taking Chance and his acceptance speech at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. We also got his thoughts about possibly acting with wife Kyra Sedgwick on her show The Closer and his feelings about his daughter (Sosie Bacon) joining the business.

Additionally, we had a chance to learn about the “Pepsi Refresh Project.” Bacon - who was honored with the Joel Siegel Award for his philanthropy work through his Six Degrees foundation - has teamed up with the company to support others wanting to have a positive impact. Through 2010, people can vote on and/or submit charitable ideas that are in need of funding. By year’s end, Pepsi will award more than $20 million in grants for ideas that “will refresh the world and lead to positive change.”

You can find more information on the Pepsi Refresh Project here.
