Inspired from the famous relatives post. What is your degree of separation from Kevin Bacon?
My first connection came from a friend who was in Top Gun (don’t blink or you miss her), and thus met Tom Cruise who acted with him in A Few Good Men, giving me a rating of 3. My next connection came when my dad met George Clooney (Sean Penn is the movie link, although I’m sure they’ve actually met each other), also a 3. Then one day a friend emailed out to say she rode a train between NYC and Philadelphia next to him, for a rating of 2.

AmuseMeMusically I used oracleofbacon.org!
I have met Larry the Cable Guy. He was in Delta Farce with Keith David, who was in Novacaine with the Bacon. So 3! Or is it 4?

I was sorority sisters with Crystal Mantecon, who was in The Tree of Life with Sean Penn, who was in Mystic River with Kevin Bacon.
Not sure how many degrees that is.

According to the all knowing Oracle, I am at 4 degrees of Kevin Bacon. My brother used to work for LeAnn Rimes who was in Dill Scallion with David Koechner (Packer from The Office) who was in My One and Only with Kevin Bacon.
I calculated just a few of the other connections and got somewhere between a total Bacon degree score of 4-5. I thought I was a 3 at first and voted for it. But then I remembered I got sick the night of the Aerosmith concert and didn’t actually get to do the meet and greet. Steven Tyler has a Bacon number of 2. So damn to the lower Bacon number opportunity and to missing out on that concert. Boo.

My father and brother both have bacon numbers of 2 according to the oracle of bacon, so I guess that means I have a bacon number of 3.

I was coached by Boris Leskin
who was in Everything is Illuminated with Elijah Wood
who was in Beyond all boundaries with Kevin Bacon
EDIT: I disagree with the degrees. I feel like if you personally know Kevin Bacon, wouldn’t that be 0 degrees?

@Roe: I understood it that Kevin Bacon is zero degrees from Kevin Bacon.

He’s a family friend (tennis related dating back to when he was married to M arla )! I’ve stayed at one of his personal places in New York and I now live near all his stuff in south Florida lol. My interaction with him was before he was famous for his “your fired” show, and he was just a rich and sometimes broke asshole 😉 I had no idea who he was as I was young! lol

I have 3 degrees of Kevin Bacon. We were discussing degrees of separation in a chaos theory class I took in freshman year, when one of the students announced that we all then had 3 degrees of separation from Kevin Bacon. Apparently his mom went to high school with Kevin Bacon, so she had one degree, he had two, and I have three now.
Interestingly, I also have 3 degrees of Hitler. :/

4 degrees for me. I worked with Alan Rickman’s sister. Alan Rickman was in Harry Potter with John Cleese, who was in the Big Picture with Kevin Bacon.

2 my Mom met him (more like saw him) while he was filming National Lampoon’s Animal House I mostly know this because my sperm donor used to “Joke” that my oldest sister was conceived around the time my mom met him…
