“There’s a big problem in Hollywood today,” starts Kevin Bacon as he addresses the internet. “In so many films and TV shows we see gratuitous female nudity, and that’s not OK. Well, it’s OK, but it’s not fair to actresses and it’s not fair to actors because we want to be naked to.”
It’s fairly commonplace in the industry to expose females on screen yet withhold exposing men’s privates. Just look at 50 Shades of Grey, a movie revolving around two people having sex, yet not one penis is shown throughout. Kevin Bacon’s had enough.
“Gentlemen, It’s time to Free Your Bacon, and by bacon, of course, I mean your wiener, your balls and your butt.”
The Footloose actor goes on to call out Game of Thrones and the previously mention 50 Shades film for only exposing actresses and not men.“Game of Thrones - you’ve got three sex scenes an episode - how hard would it be to just show one of two wieners every couple of minutes. This is an issue of gender equality, let me be on the show, I’ll be a naked wizard or something.
“50 Shades of Grey - I heard you never even see it - why not let Jamie Dornan take of his pants?” Watch the video below - it’s hilarious.
After listing off every movie that cut out shots of his genitals, Bacon then attempts to launch the hashtag #FreeTheBacon before being interrupted and told he shouldn’t do that. It then becomes apparent that his ‘bacon’ was exposed the whole time.
Hollywood as been under a lot of scrutiny recently, with many calling film makers out for being sexist. Humans actress Gemma Chan went as far as to say: “You're more likely to see an alien than an Asian woman.”
