Kevin Bacon wants to be stuck in an elevator with his family

09/04/2007 at 10:14 PM ET

Who would you want to be stuck in an elevator with? For Kevin Bacon, it would be the same people he lives with — wife Kyra Sedgwick and their kids Travis, 18, and Sosie, 15. The Death Sentence star, 49, credits his family for helping him keep things in perspective.

I know it sounds corny, but my wife and children. A lot of why I’m still here is because of Kyra. Things fall down and she helps put the pieces back together. I’m a good dad, too. Being a parent is my greatest achievement along with my marriage. It gives you perspective. So a movie didn’t do well, or I got bad reviews — that’s pretty small stuff.

I love Kevin. He’s still an awesome actor – all the way from Footloose to his latest – Death Sentence. He’s such a wholesome family man and that’s something you rarely see in Hollywood. Except for Brad of course 🙂

Sosie is really beautiful. She’s a mix of both of her parents.

I agree Kailyn, he always comes across as a sweet husband and loving father. I love seeing that in celeb couples!
