Bacon Tries To Accept His 'Elder Statesman' Status
Actor KEVIN BACON is finding aging in Hollywood harder than he had expected - he couldn't believe how youthful the 29-year-old director of his latest film DEATH SENTENCE looked.
Bacon, 49, is finding himself increasingly surrounded by young filmmakers and confesses the trend unnerves him.
He tells website Moviehole.net, "When I first met James, I walked into the restaurant and I looked around and I saw this kid sitting there and I thought, 'This can't be him.' And it was. So I had a little bit of an adjustment.
"You know, it's more and more these days I find myself ending up on sets and sort of being the elder statesman, which is not something that I'm 100 per cent comfortable with, but it just seems to be happening."
