Kevin Bacon literally knows everyone — even The Boss himself, Bruce Springsteen!
Just ask Bacon’s dreamy The Following costar James Purefoy, 51, who reveals his favorite celebrity encounter to Us Weekly in a 2016 Sundance Film Festival edition of 25 Things You Don’t Know About Me.
“[We met] backstage after a gig with my friend Kevin Bacon,” the English actor tells Us Weekly’s Travis Cronin exclusively in the Us Weekly Video Lounge at Chefdance, “because [Kevin] just knows everyone!”
Purefoy was at Sundance promoting his latest film Equity, a Wall Street thriller co-starring Orange Is the New Black’s Alysia Reiner and Breaking Bad’s Anna Gunn. He also stars in the upcoming Sundance TV drama series Hap and Leonard premiering March 2.
