Kevin Bacon recounts autograph request at urinal VIDEO

Actor Kevin Bacon joined HuffPost Live from SXSW 2014 and shared a story about the time he got a request for an autograph at an airport bathroom urinal. Bacon was attending SXSW Festival for the first time to discuss the 20th anniversary of the “6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon” game.

“It’s not the first time this has happened to me. I was in Newark at the airport and as soon as I walked in I stood up to the urinal and a guy turned to me and said, ‘Oh my God, you’re Kevin Bacon! Can I have your autograph?’ And I said, ‘Well let me put this thing down first.’ To tell you the truth that’s not exactly what I said… I washed my hands I signed the autograph and then I washed them again… That’s happened to me many, many times.”

The paraphrased response is funny and Bacon’s whole story is even better as he describes the mirror and what you see at the urinal.

Check out the clip below.

Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon is a game based on the “six degrees of separation” concept, which posits that any two people on Earth are six or fewer acquaintance links apart. The game connects an actor to Kevin Bacon and assigned the lowest number possible.
