Kevin Bacon credits his wife Kyra Sedgwick with making the Bernie Madoff savings scandal bearable, because they started rebuilding their finances as a team.
The Flashdance star was among a number of wealthy investors who lost money to the Wall Street fraudster, now serving a 150-year prison sentence, as part of his elaborate Ponzi scheme con.
Bacon admits the reality of his losses hit him hard, but having Sedgwick by his side made the ordeal easier to deal with.
He tells America's Details magazine, "I'm not going to say it didn't have its emotional downsides.
"But we were both young. And we both had the ability to work and roll up our sleeves and start putting the pieces back together. The truth is that we went through it together."
