Kevin Bacon hates his name because people constantly mock him.The Hollywood actor says he is sick of being ridiculed for being named after a cut of pork and wishes he could change it. He said: "Every time one of my films comes out, I have to read 'sizzling bacon' or 'he's sure bringing home the bacon'. "People come up to me and ask if I made up my last name. Believe me, I would have never made it up." The handsome star says he can't escape the constant torment as his surname is used in the most ridiculous ways. He explained: "I think the most memorable was when I was attending 'The River Wild' premiere with Meryl Streep and there was this burger house that made its 'movie star special' a burger with 'Two Streeps of Bacon.'"
