TIL: Whenever Kevin Bacon is invited to weddings, he frequently bribes the DJ to NOT play Footloose. He does this so that he does not upstage the bride and groom.

    He does this because he doesn't want to have to decline to dance to Footloose

    The actor also revelaed that he almost didn't get the lead role in "Footloose" because the female head of the studio said he wasn't "F—able." Fortunately, the male director and producer convinced her that Bacon was.

    There's the real story

    And here he is, reprising the dance.

    He does this because playing footloose while everyone stares at Kevin Bacon is in poor taste.

    I understand that when Kevin Bacon is at a wedding, some people may try to request Footloose in order to maybe get Kevin to dance or something, but I've only gone to about 10ish weddings up to this point in my life, and I can honestly say I have never once heard footloose being played at any of them.

    Not only does Kevin Bacon do that out of the kindness of his heart, but he also goes to weddings to make 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon easier for people. He's so nice.

    Kevin Bacon lost a lifetime of earnings to Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme. He's very lucky to have bounced back. I enjoy seeing him at the Hudson Valley food and wine festival every year. Nice guy.

    As a bride who made sure her wedding dress was Footloose-able I would’ve be deeply offended if this had happened to me. Luckily I’m 6 degrees from him.

    Who's inviting Kevin bacon to their weddings if not for their relation to him or friendship? Those kinds of people would know better than to play it and want him do dance.

    Hamilton isn't on the $20 bill, he's on the $10.

    I knew a couple who knew Kevin Bacon. Well, actually they knew someone, who knew someone, who knew someone, who knew Kevin Bacon.

    “During an appearance on Wednesday's ‘Conan,’ Bacon told the late night host that when he goes to weddings he slips the disc jockey a Hamilton to not play the famous song.”

    Since when is Hamilton on the $20 bill?

    He must have to go to a lot of weddings because of that whole six degrees thing.

    I prefer the idea of Kevin Bacon showing up at weddings and dancing the fuck out of Footloose and leaving without a word.

    Twenty years after your wedding you'd show people photos like, "Yeah. Kevin Bacon just showed up and started dancing."

    He doesn’t want to dance. I don’t know if you’ve ever really watched the movie, but dancing is not Kevin’s strong suit.

    But, if you know Kevin Bacon well enough that he bothers showing up at your wedding, wouldn't everyone be understanding about who he is?
