Kevin Bacon fears his daughter will need therapy after seeing him in 'Footloose'.
The 52-year-old actor - who has Travis, 21, and Sosie, 19, with wife Kyra Sedgwick - is worried his younger child will be appalled and embarrassed after she recently saw a scene from the iconic 1984 movie, in which Kevin donned extremely tight trousers to play teenage rebel Ren McCormack.

Martin plays Arthur, a down-on-his luck sheet-music salesman worn out by his loveless marriage to Joan (Jessica Harper) - loveless, in part, because his life with Joan can't match the fantasies produced by the lyrics he sells.

After Arthur gets cold feet about the relationship - not before dancing quite well - Eileen falls into the dastardly clutches of Tom (Walken), a pimp. It's Walken's performance that makes the film - a dowdy but charming tap-dance striptease to Cole Porter's "Let's Misbehave." With a pencil-thin mustache and a lecherous leer, he has all the fearfulness he showed in The Deer Hunter with a sophistication he never showed off often enough.
