Kevin Bacon Bribes Wedding DJs Not to Play 'Footloose'
During an appearance on Conan last week, actor Kevin Bacon made known one thing you might expect from him: He hates hearing the title track from his movie "Footloose" at weddings. If the song comes on at a wedding, often a crowd of people will surround him, expecting him to bust some moves from the 1984 film.
To stifle the problem, he's taken to bribing the DJ.
"I go to the disc jockey and hand him $20 and say, 'Please don't play that song,'" Bacon said. "Because first off, a wedding is not about me. It's about the bride and groom ... it's embarrassing.
"It's awful," he added.
