Kevin Bacon death reports false

In addition to six degrees, Kevin Bacon also apparently has nine lives. A rumor took root on the internet today that the Philadelphia-born actor had died in a car accident in Australia.

The truth is he is Atlanta on a film set making a movie with Dennis Quaid and Robert Duvall.

For some weird reason, false reports of Bacon’s death seem to pop up with regularity, most recently in May.

In 1999, news of his alleged passing spread quickly after someone misread a death notice for a Kenneth Bacon.

We’re only guessing, but the new wave of rumors may have stemmed from the title of the film Bacon is making in Atlanta: Jayne Mansfield’s Car.

Mansfield, a Hollywood sex symbol, famously died in a car crash in 1967.
