Kevin Bacon on his failed attempt to be a 'regular guy'

Actor Kevin Bacon talks about his longtime status as a highly recognizable star and how he recently tried to see how the average person lives.
Bacon's comments came in an interview with Vanity Fair.
"I went to a special effects makeup artist, had a consultation and asked him to make me a prosthetic disguise," the star said.
After suiting up and going incognito, he went to The Grove - one of the most visited and populated shopping centers in Los Angeles - and was delighted to find that "no one recognized him".
He was excited at first, but that soon subsided.
"People passed me by, they weren't kind. Nobody said, 'I love you.' I had to wait in line to buy a coffee or whatever," Bacon noted.
 "I felt like, 'This sucks. I want to go back to being famous," he added.
Bacon told Vanity Fair that as an actor he never hesitated to play darker roles.
"I never worried about what people would say about me. The job is to become other people and become part of some story. I don't need you to go to the movies and love me. If you go to a movie like 'MaXXXine' or 'Beverly Hills Cop' and I die and you stand up and cheer, I'm like, 'Great. That was my gig. That's what I wanted from it,'" the star added . | BGNES
