“It was a sad moment, but it was a funny story,” Sedgwick, 55, said during the Wednesday, April 14, episode of The Drew Barrymore Show. “[Husband Kevin Bacon and I] got invited over for dinner with lots of famous people, like Demi Moore and Bruce Willis. … Rob Reiner was there, it was a flow, and [Nicole Kidman] was there. It was one of those nights that I, you know, often don’t get invited to.”
After admitting that she enjoys a bit of harmless snooping, Sedgwick noted that she’d let her curiosity get the best of her at the 58-year-old Top Gun actor’s home.
“There was this, like, fireplace mantle, and I was looking around and there was this little button underneath the mantle,” she continued. “I was like, ‘Oh, what is that little button?’ So I pressed the little button because I thought maybe something interesting would happen. Nothing happened … and then I got a little nervous.”
The Call Your Mother actress interrupted the New York native mid-conversation to let him know what she’d done. He responded that the button she’d pressed was strictly for emergencies.
“The cops came. … I think there were more than, like, five cop cars,” Sedgwick recalled. “It was something. I didn’t get invited back.”
The actress is no stranger to uncomfortable situations. In March, Bacon, 62, revealed during an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live that he’d given his wife a “frighteningly dangerous” bikini wax during the COVID-19 quarantine.
“I’m one of those people that is cocky enough to think that I can probably do anything. You know what I mean? Especially because you’re an actor, you need to get a skill. You have to pretend you’re an astronaut or a fireman,” the Footloose star said at the time. “She was a little bit mad at me, but you know what? It was OK. I gave it the old college try.”
Sedgwick’s take on the incident was a little more serious.
“I’m not saying it was a disaster, but the fact that we did not have to go to the emergency room was just an absolute miracle,” she said during a separate conversation with Jimmy Kimmel in January.
The movie stars have been married since 1988 and share two children: Travis, 31, and Sosie, 29.
