Kevin Bacon issues sad family update after Lily loss

Renowned actor Kevin Bacon shared some uncanny stories about his lesser-known life on tour as part of the band The Bacon Brothers.

The 65-year-old found solace in his music career last year when much of Hollywood came to a standstill amid the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes, so rather than picketing or simply staying home, the band went on the road.

The actor admitted that touring has its downsides, namely the lack of a kitchen which made it difficult to cook properly, and recalled one “road story” that actually came with some injuries as he warned fans not to follow in his footsteps.

He explained on Late Night with Seth Meyers that one day he opted to skip the free breakfast at one hotel and instead, only grabbed a couple of hard-boiled eggs for the road as they headed from “one lousy hotel to another”.

Safely set up his next hotel room, and now with an appetite, the Footloose star fished out his eggs and popped them into the microwave to warm them up a bit.

Suddenly, one exploded in the microwave leaving a chaotic mess in its wake, which didn’t quell his hunger, so he quickly took a bite into the other egg before cleaning up the explosion.

However, things quickly went from bad to worse for the star: “I bite into the other egg and it’s a grenade going off in my mouth.

“It exploded in my mouth, it’s a cautionary tale folks.”

Panicked, the actor grabbed a cold towel and held it to his face for a moment to help the pain but warned fans the next part of his story is “a little gross” before continuing.

    Kevin shared: “I take the towel off…and the skin of my lips is on the towel.”

    With a chuckle, the musician recalled speaking to the doctor who said: “Obviously you’ve burned yourself badly,” and prescribed some medications.

    Unfortunately, only time could fix the burn marks on his face which Kevin claimed made him look like “a Kansas City Chiefs fan” for a month.

    The ever-humble star knew the story would eventually make headlines and aptly suggested for the New York Post: “Bacon burned by egg.”
