Do you remember 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon?

Asked by Deja_vu (4157points) September 24th, 2010

Supposedly everyone in the world is connected at least by 6 degrees. Let’s put it to the test.
*Me: I was at a crew party a few years ago for the movie “Tropic Thunder” and met Steve Coogan.
*Steve Coogan: was in “Tropic Thunder” directed by Ben Stiller.
*Ben Stiller: starred in “There’s Something about Mary” with co-star Matt Dillon.
*Matt Dillon: co-starred in “Wild Things” with….. Kevin Bacon!
I am 3 degrees from Kevin Bacon.
How many degrees are you from Kevin Bacon, or anyone else from Kevin Bacon? Or, even a different star (your choice). What is your example of the 6 degrees of separation?

For Kevin Bacon:
Me: I have a good friend named Ellen
Ellen: Has a step-daughter named Erin
Erin: Lives in NYC and worked in a restaurant where Kevin Bacon would pick up take out Thai food for his wife Kyra Sedgwick. Or is it Sedgewick? I’m too lazy to look.

I’m exactly 6 degrees from Kevin Bacon.

I was an extra in a film with Tom Cruise.

Tom Cruise was married to Nicole Kidman.

Nicole Kidman is currently married to Keith Urban.

Keith Urban has a daughter, singer Sunday Rose.

On Sunday I like to eat brunch.

I always have Bacon with my eggs.

@filmfann I’d call that one degree. If you knew him personally it would be zero. There’s one person between you. One degree, and five points!

I know @filmfann
@filmfann went to school with Tom Hanks
Tom Hanks was in Apollo 13 with Kevin Bacon.

I’ll take my four points and be happy with them. ^_^

I’m two degrees from Kevin Bacon by my work on film and TV via a number of people, so I’m either one or two degrees from a lot of Hollywood. I am two degrees from George Bush through a friend of mine. I am two degrees from The Jersey Shore through one of my roommates. I don’t know how many I am from Obama, but probably three or four.
