Her golden blonde hair was down, as she held a red bag across her chest.

Kyra Sedgwick banned Kevin Bacon from ‘footloose dancing dressed as a giant peanut’ for a commercial.
The actor has been married to the actress since 1988, and he revealed that she “doesn’t like it when food talks.”
Kevin, who starred in the 1984 musical drama film Footloose, shared, “It’s true that I had to turn down dancing Footloose dressed as a giant peanut M&M for a commercial, because my wife doesn’t like it when food talks.”

“One of the first things I responded to was that the ads were funny and that I had an opportunity to make fun of myself. I love comedy, but in our industry, comedy is a club where you have a membership, and I’ve never been able to figure out that membership. It’s never too late,’ she added.
Kevin thinks it’s hard to switch between different movie genres.
He explained: “If I had my preferences [choice]I think I’d rather be known as a dramatic actor who occasionally wants to do comedy rather than a famous comic actor who wants to be taken seriously as a dramatic actor. Our industry makes the transition much more difficult.”
