Kyra Sedgwick Still Feels “Fluttery” Around Hubby Kevin Bacon

 Todd Williamson/

Even after 23 years of marriage, Kyra Sedgwick still gets giddy at the sight of Kevin Bacon.

Opening up to Redbook's April issue about her relationship with Bacon, 53, the Closer star admits that "the essence" of their attraction is the same as it was the day they met. "When he walks into a room…my heart gets a little fluttery and I think, 'Oh! He's so cute. He's so hot," Sedgwick, 46, tells the magazine.

The mom to Travis, 22, and Sosie, 20, also chatted about her kids growing up–and moving on. "My son is still living with us, but…he won't be here for long," Sedgwick shares. "I know [my kids] will need me, but in a totally different way…That's weird."

Continues Sedgwick, "You know, the best sound in the world to me is the door opening in the apartment, and one of the kids walking in…they light up my life."

Still, the actress admits she sees the upside to an empty nest. "We're [now] responsible for our own happiness," Sedgwick says. "It's not about them making me happy."

Plus, she feels confident that with Bacon by her side, she'll be ready for any new challenges life may throw her way. "Getting older together is scary and exciting," she shares. Adding to the excitement? Sedgwick reveals she has plenty to learn about her longtime love to keep things interesting. "He's still a mystery to me," she laughs.
