How perfect is it that Kevin Bacon is advocating for more male nudity on the same day Lenny Kravitz split his pants?
“There’s a big problem in Hollywood today,” Bacon says in this spoof PSA. “In so many films and TV shows, we see gratuitous female nudity, and that’s not okay. Well, it’s okay, but it’s not fair to actresses and it’s not fair to actors, because we want to be naked too.
“Gentlemen, it’s time to free the bacon - and by bacon of course I mean your wiener, your balls and your butt.”
And by “gentlemen,” Kevin Bacon really means himself, in all the movies and TV shows, without pants. “Sore subject, but ‘The Following’ did not have a single shot of my penis, and now it’s cancelled,” he points out. “Surprise, surprise.”
He urges men to use the hashtag #FreeTheBacon and tweet out a picture of their genitals immediately, before someone off camera insists you absolutely should not do that.
I think the bloopers at the end are my favorite part.
