How Kevin Bacon Bounced Back After Losing His $100 Million Net Worth

With a career spanning more than 40 years, Kevin Bacon shows no signs of losing his natural acting ability

One of the best actors of his time, he has appeared in everything from the tragic drama Mystic River to the youthful comedy Footloose. 

He amassed a significant sum of money throughout his career as a very successful actor, reaching a peak net worth of $100 million.

In 2009, one of Bernie Madoff's largest Ponzi schemes claimed the lives of Kevin Bacon and his wife, fellow actress Kyra Sedgwick. 

The pair lost a stunning $100 million, which undoubtedly had an adverse financial impact.

Kyra and Kevin spent $2.5 million buying a house in Los Feliz, Los Angeles, in December 2011. 

They also own a 40-acre rural property in Sharon, Connecticut, which they first bought in the 1990s, according to public documents
