"I think we all have a lot of darkness in our bellies.
As an actor, the challenge of tapping into that, reaching down
into that sadness or anger, is very therapeutic."

Kevin Bacon

"I really believe that all of us have a lot of darkness in our souls.
Anger, rage, fear, sadness. I don't think that's only reserved for people who have
horrible upbringings. I think it really exists and is part of the human condition.
I think in the course of your life you figure out ways to deal with that."

Kevin Bacon

"I just let the work speak for itself. An actor is not afraid to take risks;
to put on different hats; to be a good guy, a bad guy, a victim, an abuser.
There are all kinds of people in the world, and playing them is what acting is all about."

Kevin Bacon

"Some people have therapy, some people are alcoholics or they're in AA.
Some people jump out of planes on weekends or find ways to release this
kind of thing. And for me, it's acting. I find acting very therapeutic for whatever it is."

Kevin Bacon

"When it happened to us and it was all gone overnight, we said,
'We are in this together, we are healthy, our children are healthy and we can work'."
