Veteran movie actor Kevin Bacon refuses to let his paranoia of stalkers ruin his life.

The FOOTLOOSE star understands why celebrities cocoon themselves away from the real world, but he prefers to lead as normal an existence as possible.

Kevin, 45, says, "There's been a couple of times when I've maybe seen someone who could be a stalker. And to tell you the truth, I kind of look the other way.

"But I'd rather not live my life in paranoia, and I think you can definitely fall into that when you're a celebrity.

"You can feel like the whole world's stalking you because, basically, you're living in a fishbowl. And I just kind of fell like it's not a good way to live your life."
