Kevin Bacon is just like us. He’s just as tired of being cock-teased by films such as Fifty Shades of
Gay Grey and Magic Mike. The handsome 57-year-old actor wants the entertainment industry to spend more time finding ways to get male actors out of their clothing in front of the camera for completely gratuitous nude scenes in TV series like Game of Thrones. You know, for equality, because if women are allowed to run around starkers so should men. Bacon, who’s never been shy about getting his kit off (we have seen Wild Things many times, thank you for asking, as well as Hollow Man), reveals that he has a clause in every film that requires him to drop trou but uptight producers are hell-bent on keeping the man down. Here’s hoping that will change with his campaign #FreeTheBacon and other leading men will be ready for their close-ups.
Take in Kevin’s urgent plea below.
