“Chemistry to me is a fun word. I think chemistry is just two good actors acting well together, you know? And I think being involved with great actors like Eddie makes it easier. So, I do my thing and I also ‘hit back’ (interact with the same intensity). That’s what chemistry does and this was a really fun game,” Bacon said.

Regarding the charismatic characters in the film, including his role, he acknowledged that he does not know how to be “charismatic,” because for him “it is not a characteristic that can be acted.”

“If someone says to me, ‘I want you to act really angry,’ I can do that. I want you to act really hungry, really sad, really in love, I can do that, too, but I’m not sure what it’s like to play someone charismatic. I just try to stay true to the character.”


Regarding his experience filming the action scenes, Kevin Bacon was very pleased, as he had done sequences he never imagined doing and without a green screen. For example, he spoke of a particular chase scene involving cars and a helicopter accompanied by a tremendous shootout in the heart of Beverly Hills.

“Sometimes when I was driving, all the other drivers were stunt drivers and there was a guy on the roof of the car who was driving for me, so you could frame him out of the frame and you wouldn’t see him. I had no control over the car, I was just turning the wheel like this (side to side) and we drove down the street,” he said excitedly.

He added: “I’ve done a lot of things in my career, a lot of crazy things for action sequences, but this is the first time I did something like this and it was a lot of fun. By the way, there was no green screen, everything was live, it wasn’t like you could do digital enhancements. Everything was done for real.” However, it’s not all action and comedy. This film also deals with a sensitive subject such as the reconciliation of a father and daughter who are estranged because they give everything to their respective jobs.

“I think that was a really good way to get into the movie. I mean, a lot of people have fathers and also daughters, so there are (important) elements to that relationship. Certainly, when I look at them, I see important things. I have a daughter. And I think the two of them were fantastic together.”

“Beverly Hills Cop” is the name of this comedy and action saga.
