Would you get your partner to give you a bikini wax? Kevin Bacon’s wife Kyra Sedgewick has revealed that she tasked him with doing some intimate hair removal for her during COVID-19 quarantine.
The couple, who've been married for more than 30 years, have been spending a lot of time at home in New York during the pandemic and Sedgewick said it “became clear at one point to me, to both of us, that I needed a bikini line wax".
The 55-year-old actress discussed the “agonising” experience on the Jimmy Kimmel Live talk show.
“Part of me was like, ‘How hard could it be?’ You know, I've watched these amazing ladies do it all these years, and like, I've always really appreciated them and appreciated their attention to detail, but I didn't really think it would be that hard.
“Kevin, is like, incredibly handy. Like he's really good with a lot of things… So we both figured, ‘How hard could it be?'
Sedgewick did some research to find the best wax kit, warmed up the wax and “assumed the position”. It quickly became clear that Kevin might have many talents, but waxing isn’t one of them.
“I'm not saying it was a disaster, but the fact that we did not have to go to the emergency room was just an absolute miracle,” she joked.
“I mean there were moments where I was like, ‘I thought you knew how to do this! My God, what are you doing? That's such a huge piece!’” she said.
“And he was like, ‘I didn't say I knew how to do this. You said I knew how to do this!’ And I was like, ‘But you're good at everything!’ And he was like, ‘Well, I'm not good at this!’”
Sedgewick also told Kimmel the secret to their 32-year marriage is not to "spend 24/7 together."
"But the amazing thing is, and a surprise even to me, that like after 32 years, he always wakes up before I do in the morning and I come downstairs during this COVID time and I'm like, 'How'd you sleep? How's your morning been so far?' And I really care. I really want to know," Sedgwick said.
