Kevin Bacon Reflects on ‘Footloose’ Role and Body Double

Jason Merritt/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- With the new remake of 1984’s Footloose currently out in theaters, Kevin Bacon  recently dished about his  experiences starring in the original version, which went on to earn more than 10 times its reported $8 million budget.

People reports that while Bacon was proud of his role and of the film, he did admit that he regretted not performing some of the more complicated dance moves on set.

On the day of the movie's famous warehouse shoot, where some of the more complicated dance scenes were performed, Bacon admits, "I had a stunt double, a dance double and two gymnastics doubles."

When reflecting on his body double being used in place of him, he expressed his regret.

"Are you kidding? I was furious," Bacon said with a smile."It's like a starting pitcher getting taken out of a game.”

Upon the movie’s original release, the studio told Bacon to never mention that they used a double. "While I was in no position to do this, I told them, ‘You are out 
of your f---ing mind!'” Bacon said.
