Kevin Bacons Hates "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon"

 
Kevin Bacons Hates
Posted Monday, March 10th 2014 @ 6am

When the game "Six Degrees of Kevin bacon" was invented in 1994, Kevin hated it!  

During a recent interview at SXSW, Kevin said he thought it was a joke at his expense and that it was belittling! Then he met the guy that made it up and he realized he liked Kevin and wasn't making fun of him! The point of the game was to connect other celebrities to Kevin in the least degrees as possible by using the movies they have been in together.
Eventually Kevin made the best the situation by creating a website called SixDegrees.org that would link celebs with charities and fundraising. This game also inspired the website The Oracle of Kevin Bacon where you can type in a celebs name and find out how they are connected to Kevin.
