While everyone across the world is social distancing to help protect themselves from the coronavirus, some stars are going the extra mile to convince people to stay at home. Among them is Kevin Bacon, who started the #IStayHomeFor challenge, which allows others to say why they choose to self-isolate during these times.
Bacon’s reason was his wife, Kyra Sedgwick, who’s the actor has been married to for 31 years.
In the Instagram post, Bacon says the following, “Hi folks, you know me. I’m technically only six degrees away from you,” Bacon quipped in the Instagram clip, referencing the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon game. “Right now, like people around the world, I’m staying home because it saves lives and it is the only way we’re going to slow down the spread of this coronavirus. Because the contact that you make with someone who makes contact with someone else that may be what makes somebody’s mom or grandpa or wife sick. Every one of us has someone who’s worth staying home for.”
Other celebrities have risen the challenge with Demi Lovato posting a photo holding up the sign, “#IStayHomeFor my parents, my neighbors, my health.” She tagged fellow stars Arianna Grande, Miley Cyrus, Bebe Rexha, Ashley Graham, Ruby Rose, and ALOK to do the same.
David Beckham, who was challenged by Kevin Bacon, post reads, “I’m staying at home for Victoria and our kids, including Cruzie who’s made his way into this photo 😂” Let’s stop the coronavirus spread together ♥️”
Millie Bobby Brown wrote, “I’m staying at home for these people because they are my everything♡ my beautiful nan, she protected me my whole life. now it’s time for me to protect her. keep positive. xx.”
