Kevin Bacon Loved That Footloose Joke in Guardians of The Galaxy


Yes, Kevin Bacon laughed at the Footloose jokes in Guardians of the Galaxy. As if you had any doubt!

One of the funniest things about Guardians of the Galaxy was Star-Lord (Chris Pratt)’s referencing of Footloose as a legendary hero’s tale from planet Earth and the hilarious way it translated to his alien co-horts. From Star-Lord:

Well, on my planet, we have a legend about people like you. It’s called Footloose. And in it, a great hero, named Kevin Bacon, teaches an entire city full of people with sticks up their butts that, dancing, well, is the greatest thing there is.

But one important question about the film remained unanswered: Did Kevin Bacon find this funny?

The Hollywood Reporter got to the bottom of this during an interview at Sundance with the cast of Bacon’s new film, Cop Car. “Whether I was mentioned in the movie or not, in my opinion it was one of the best movies of the year,” Bacon says. “I loved it. And I didn’t talk to anybody who didn’t love it.”

Confirmed: Kevin Bacon is awesome. Watch the full clip below:
