Neil Gavin met up with the 58-year-old actor, who caused a dance craze in 1984 with Footloose, for MR PORTER at Soho House, New York. The term Kevin Bacon number was coined after him and stands for the smallest number of connections actors or actresses have to his films. Following the theory of the Six Degrees of Separation, it is also referred to as the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. He can now be seen in 'Patriots Day', a film about the attack on the Boston Marathon in 2013. The actor says: “The real heart of Patriots Day is this idea of love triumphing over hate. It plays very strongly in the film...” The exciting interview by Tom Chiarella can be read in MR PORTER JOURNAL, and the expressive portraits by Neil GAVIN c/o DARLING CREATIVE are available here on GoSee.
