If you think Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgewick worked a lot in the past, I don't think you have seen anything yet. Reports are swirling that Kevin and Kyra lost all of their money in the Bernard Madoff ponzi scheme. Apparently Kyra and Kevin lost everything except for their checking accounts and the land they own. Their publicist refused to confirm or deny this to The Huffington Post but if true would certainly crush them. Not crush them as if they were people who couldn't go out and work and make a few million each year for the next few years, but still, crush them in the sense they probably had to drink themselves to sleep for a few nights until they realized they can make more money in a few months than most people make in their whole lives.
See, it is their story that is going to make headlines because they are the celebrities, but lets face it. They can and will make a ton of money still in their lifetime. Sure, they might have to cut back on private jets for a few months until the paychecks start rolling back in, but the sad fact is they are not going to really struggle. It makes for great headlines but chooses to ignore all the people in the world who don't have the luxury of being able to get $1M for six weeks work.
It does show that even when you are decent couple as Kyra and Kevin are, that even they can fall victim to certain acts and hopefully their situation will throw some light on people who are not as fortunate as they are and are just hoping everyday they get that minimum wage job at the mall to try and support their family.
