Good to know 😂

Anyone who has spent most of their lives as a celebrity has probably wondered what it’s like to walk down the street and not be recognised and stopped for photos.

And being a big celebrity for most of his life, Kevin Bacon set out to see if he could actually experience a day in the life of a regular person.

“I went to a special effects makeup artist, had consultations, and asked him to make me a prosthetic disguise,” the Footloose actor told Vanity Fair.

Once the disguise was in place, Kevin Bacon went out in the world, starting in a popular shopping centre in LA.

Bacon was thrilled to discover that his disguise worked perfectly and that “nobody recognised” him, but his glee was short-lived.

“People were kind of pushing past me, not being nice. Nobody said, ‘I love you.’ I had to wait in line to, I don’t know, buy a f—king coffee or whatever,” Bacon observed coyly. “I was like, This sucks. I want to go back to being famous.”

Not all it’s cracked up to be this civilian life, is it Kevin? 😂
