Actor Kevin Bacon hates his last name because it inspires relentless porcine puns.
He tells website PAGESIX.COM, "I was in THE RIVER WILD with Meryl Streep and we had a premiere in Libby, Montana (US), and there was this burger house that put on its marquee their 'movie star special', which was a burger with 'Two Streeps of Bacon'.
"Every time one of my films comes out, I have to read 'sizzling bacon' or 'he's sure bringing home the bacon'.
"People come up to me and ask me if I made up my last name. Believe me, I would have never made up my last name."12/04/2005 13:51
