20 Photos of a Young Kevin Bacon in the 1980s

Kevin Norwood Bacon was born on July 8, 1958 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Ruth Hilda (Holmes), an elementary school teacher, and Edmund Norwood Bacon, a prominent architect who was on the cover of Time Magazine in November 1964.

Kevin Bacon's film career started with 1978’s National Lampoon’s Animal House, but it was 1984’s Footloose that made him a pop culture icon. He has cranked out endless flicks since, and, in 2013, transitioned into full-time television star with the eerie crime series The Following. He’s also the inspiration behind the popular pop culture game Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.

The Guardian named him one of the best actors never to have received an Academy Award nomination. In 2003, Bacon received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his contributions to the motion picture industry.

Below is a selection of 20 vintage portraits of Kevin Bacon when he was young in the 1980s:
