LA, September 24 Kevin Bacon's wife Kyra Sedgwick forbade him from "dancing to 'Footloose' dressed as a huge peanut" for an advertisement.
The 64-year-old actor, who has been married to the 57-year-old actress since 1988, said that she "doesn't like it when food talks," according to aceshowbiz.com.
'Footloose' star Kevin Bacon revealed, "It is true that I had to decline dancing to 'Footloose' while dressed as a huge peanut M&M for a commercial since my wife doesn't like it when food talks.
"It's just a trait she possesses. She is scared if she encounters a talking grape. She only said, "No, that's too far," when it was suggested that I might be a talking M&M."
Despite this, Kevin has appeared in numerous commercials over the past ten years for UK mobile network company EE.
The Hollywood star, who has always had difficulty getting humorous roles in the film industry, genuinely loved filming the lighthearted commercials.
He stated to the Guardian: "I've been working in EE for almost ten years. The fact that the spots were funny and gave me a chance to poke fun at myself was one of the first things to which I reacted. Although I adore comedy, I've never been able to gain access to the club that requires membership in our field. There is always time."
According to Bacon, switching between various film genres might be difficult.
He clarified: "If given the chance, I believe that I would prefer to be recognised as a dramatic actor who occasionally wants to perform comic material over a well-known comedic actor who wants to be taken seriously as a dramatic actor. That change is significantly more difficult in our sector."
