Kyra Sedgwick happy to have her kids back for now
By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith
HollywoodNews.com: Kyra Sedgwick reports that she and hubby Kevin Bacon and their 21-year-old son and 18-year-old daughter will soon be taking off for a holiday vacation together in Belize — and she can hardly wait “to have our children in our clutches again for a week or so. Nothing feels better and safer to me than being surrounded by my husband and children,” says the Emmy-winning “The Closer” star, whose series returns with new episodes next week (12/6).
Kyra admits she’s still adjusting to having an empty nest at home in New York, now that daughter Sosie’s off at college. “My life is definitely changed — now I guess I’ll have the chance to see what that change means.”
One thing she already knows is that “It makes it easier to leave town, there’s no question. I won’t be torn for six months, feeling like, ‘Oh, I’m leaving my kids at home and I’m such a bad mother.’”
She’s speaking, of course, of her “Closer” production schedule, which keeps her in Los Angeles much of the year. Asked whether she can see the end on the horizon after six years of the acclaimed TNT drama, she answers, “I think the show continues to be amazing. I mean, we went up in viewership 20 per cent last year, which is unusual.” To say the least! Small wonder “The Closer” is already picked up for next season.
