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 – 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.
