Kyra Sedgwick Forgot Kevin Bacon's Birthday


The Emmy Award nominee forgot to wish her husband a Happy Birthday.

Where was she when she heard the good news?

"I was picking up dog poop at the moment of the call. Very glamorous," says The Closer star.

And what did she think about it?

"I'm thrilled honestly. I never expect it. It's such a pat on the back and a vote of confidence. Do a lot of people get nominated five years in a row? Is that a normal thing?"

So thrilled, that when her hubby Kevin called to congratulate her on her Best Actress nod she forgot what day it was: his 52nd birthday.
