HOLLYWOOD – The Following and Hollow Man actor Kevin Bacon has for the first time revealed his long-running battle with hair sticky-upiness.

Footloose star, Kevin Bacon came round to the Studio Exec Bungalow early this morning to talk for the first time about his until now secret struggle with hair sticky-upiness.

It just sticks up and I comb it down but it springs up like it has a life of its own. People think its hair gel or some kind of salon hairdressing style but it isn’t. It actually comes from within the hair and I really don’t know what to do anymore. I am literally at my wit’s end.

Bacon was a young actor when he was first struck down by the rare syndrome.

I was making Friday the 13th. I had a small part. It was 1980 and was going to be my big break. I was to be murdered. I don’t know if you know much about how they make horror movies, but the director Sean Cunningham he was into doing it all for real and he scared the bejesus out of me. The morning after I shot the scene my hair was all sticky up and it never came down. In 1984, I did Footloose and my ‘electric hair’ was one of the reasons I got the job, but little did I know that it would be a battle for the next thirty odd years. Jesus, in A Few Good Man I was almost fired because it got so distracting.

Why speak out now?

Because I know there are so many kids at home with sticky upy hair and I just think if they can see someone like me, an ambassador if you will for hair that will not stay down, then they can live their lives reassured that perhaps they too can make a bucket of money with a film and TV career second to none.

Cop Car will be released now.


HOLLYWOOD – Rumors of her death have been much exaggerated, as Miley Cyrus revealed that she is to resurrect the character who made her famous – pop alter ego Hannah Montana – in a new film for Disney: Wrecking Ball.

Miley Cyrus dropped in to the Studio Exec bungalow to talk exclusively about her relationship to Hannah Montana and the new movie, the poster for which was revealed today:

I guess I was really mad at Hannah Montana for a long time. She was the pop princess and Miley was just me, the ordinary girl trying to live an ordinary life away from the fame and the super stardom. So when it came time to express my own voice and sexuality I wanted to bury Hannah as deep as I could. Have done with her and all the shenanigans once and for all.

So what changed?

Well, a few months ago, I just began to feel like I missed Hannah. There are only so many middle aged men you can twerk with and only so many huge inflatable phallic hotdogs you can bronco ride on before you begin to find it hard to look at yourself in the mirror. I kind of missed that innocence I had with Hannah and I wanted it back.

So what’s the story of the new film?

Of course as the novelist Thomas Wolfe once said, you can never go home again. So it wasn’t as if we were just going to make another Hannah Montana: the Movie. I’ve changed, my audience has changed and so it’s only right that Hannah has changed as well. Wrecking Ball will see Hannah flipped around. Now Miley Cyrus/Stewart is the famous one. The girl who has given herself over to self-exploitation, over-exposure and a weird coquetry and sex inspired madness which almost destroys the very concept of sexiness itself.

My thoughts precisely.

She decides to take a break and escape some Yakuza as well, who have been hard on her trail. Lilly (Emily Osment) and Jackson (Jason Earles) and my pop help her by creating a Hannah Montana tribute act, and that’s my new alter ego. I basically going around pretending to be a look-alike Hannah Montana and at the same time ween myself away from the world of excess to whence I have been precipitated by my massive success. As part of my disguise I also get an ordinary gal job on a construction site – a bit like Jennifer Beales being a welder in Flashdance – and here I have to face day-to-day problems of sexism and I grow as a person.

Ah so you literally operate…

A wrecking ball yes. And we do the number in a very literal way.

Hannah Montana: Wrecking Ball will be released in 2016.

HOLLYWOOD – News is coming in that Kevin Bacon – star of Flashdance and The Following – has separated by six degrees.

The incident happened in the early hours of this morning as Mr. Bacon and his party were leaving Chez Dave, a popular Anglo-Russian restaurant owned by Ryan Gosling where potato-themed dishes are bought via bartering with American cigarettes and Belgian chocolate.  An eyewitness said, ‘Bacon was just walking normally and then suddenly he just kind of split. A part of him just peeled off and the weird thing was, as well as there being blood, there was this strange purple sand that just fell out of him.’

Doctors at the Cedar-Sinai Medical Center were quick to reassure tearful fans that Bacon was out of danger. A spokesman for the Medical Center said:

Mr. Bacon is currently resting after the incident. He is obviously in some discomfort, having effectively come apart in a way that even I, as a medical man, would describe as rank, but we’ve stapled him and given him some painkillers, and he is currently in a stable condition. This is not the first time this has happened.

Avid Bacon watchers were only partially reassured by the diagnosis. Sepp Beaster commented from a trailer park just off the interstate:

Kev has separated five times in the last twenty years, but what makes this last one significant is that previously there have always been six degrees of separation from Kevin Bacon, but this time, it’s seven. So we’re going to have to rename the game and hope that Kevvy doesn’t go any further.

 The maximum someone can separate according to Wikipedia is nine, so let’s hope Mr. Bacon can hold it together.
