Indeed, Sedgwick was initially cold to her co-star’s charms. Speaking to Redbook magazine in 2008, she explained, “He definitely wasn’t my type. In fact, I vividly remember looking at his butt when he walked away after we first met and thinking, ‘Well, I guess some girls like that.’”
But although Lemon Sky marked the first time the pair worked together, it wasn’t exactly the first time the two met. Strangely enough, a 12-year-old Sedgwick once approached Bacon after seeing him in a play. “Her brother said, ‘You like that actor, go tell him you like him,’” he told Craig Ferguson in 2014, “and it was Kyra.”
After putting her initial reservations behind her, Sedgwick agreed to go out with Bacon. And it didn’t take long for the pair to realize they were destined for each other. To illustrate, Bacon – as Sedgwick told Redbook – asked the actress what she thought about having children on one of their very first dates.
