Kevin Bacon and wife Kyra Sedgwick discovered they're distant cousins, making for an awkward revelation.

Their familial connection was unveiled on the TV show "Finding Your Roots" in 2013, surprising both.

Sedgwick's initial concerns about being related to Bacon were confirmed, albeit in a distant manner.

Bacon, known for the "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" game, found it ironic but accepted the news.

Despite initial horror, Bacon acknowledges the enduring popularity of the game.

The couple's enduring relationship began long before they knew about their familial tie.

Both Bacon and Sedgwick are acclaimed actors with notable achievements in Hollywood.

Sedgwick's nonchalant reaction suggests she wasn't entirely surprised by the revelation.

Bacon and Sedgwick met on set in 1987 and married soon after, unaware of their distant kinship.
