Kyra Sedgwick Found Out She's Distantly Related to Husband Kevin Bacon (VIDEO)

Kyra Sedgwick, 'Late Show with David Letterman'Kyra Sedgwick always wins when playing "The Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" because she's married to him. But she inadvertently found out something else about him when she participated in a show with Henry Louis Gates Jr. that traced her lineage back 200 years, as she revealed on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS).

It was all fun and games when she found out she was distant cousins with the likes of Jimmy Carter, Richard Nixon and even Marilyn Monroe. "I can see the resemblance," Sedgwick smiled.

But she also found out she was a 10th cousin once removed of one Kevin Bacon. So she's married and related by blood, albeit just marginally, to Kevin Bacon. Now no one will ever be able to beat her at that game!

This was kind of funny with my favorite character Brenda Liegh Johnson speaking in her natural speaking voice! I really do like that southern draw that her character speaks in!

They should dig in deeper; it would be discovered how a lot of married couples are INCESTUOUS! Grouse!

It appears my wife and I were seventh cousins; yet, we were sweethearts since she was four and I was six. We were married 65 years when she died in my arms from ALS (Lou Genrig's Disease) two years ago. She was the only girl I ever loved, the only girl I ever kissed. She was the greatest!

Does this mean she's only 1/2 to Kevin Bacon?

As an esthetician I always have women asking what they can do about their wrinkles. I always tell them about the Pure Collagen Facial Serum ( HTTP://tinyurl.com/FaceliftSerum ) which is America's number one anti-aging serum. It erases wrinkles and lip lines, reduces under eye circles, and boosts collagen production. It's much better, safer, and less expensive than Botox. They always come back to tell me how great it is and how much younger they look. It’s a great product and I back it up 100%.
