While Bacon had no shirt on in his photo, he did cover his arms and shoulders with a black jacket. Looking ready for a day of relaxation, he lay back on a rock as he posed and gazed at the camera. "This is 66. 🎂," penned the Hollywood star in his caption.

Gushing over her handsome hubby, Bacon's beloved wife, famous actress Kyra Sedgwick, took to the comment section of his post to swoon, "Not too shabby! ❤️." From the wave of other supportive comments Bacon received, it appears as though Sedgwick is not the only person who thinks the actor has still got it.

"That's insane!!" exclaimed a fan taken aback by Bacon's well-preserved looks at 66. Echoing the sentiment, another admirer praised, "Wow!👏." Joking about how Bacon's appearance may attract overwhelming attention from women, someone on X wrote, "Ladies ladies ladies, line up."

However, some people who were unimpressed by Bacon's picture criticized him. "Put the shirt on old timer lol," asserted an Instagrammer. Another person chimed in with, "This is not what I wanted to see."

"[Looking] like you been eating too much bacon … time to workout and lay off the fats and sweets! [Happy] b day … time waits for no one!!! [Gooooo]! [Til] you sweat [sic]," stated someone else.

Despite what critics have to say about Bacon's looks at 66, the majority of people think he looks great, which, of course, includes Sedgwick. In addition to the loving comment she posted underneath Bacon's birthday selfie, the "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" star shared a loving birthday tribute to him on herInstagram account.

She posted an Instagram Reel that started by showing a beautiful throwback picture of her and Bacon and then transitioned to a video compiled with pictures she had created. On top of an endearing photo of Sedgwick cuddling a goat, she typed, "If you were to ask me about bacon, I would say…"

Continuing with her statement, the next piece of text in Sedgwick's video read, "Bacon can be a delicious part of a balanced breakfast," which was layered over a picture of delicious-looking crispy bacon.

The video then cut to another photo of Sedgwick, who looked to be in a reflective state as she gazed out at the ocean with a smile. "But if you asked me on a deeper level, I would say…" she noted in this photo frame.

Using the same sweet picture of her and her husband that she used as the Reel cover, Sedgwick's video ended with that photo and some more layered text which expressed, "(Kevin) Bacon is the love of my life, my only one, happy birthday!"

"Bacon's #1 fan. Happy Birthday @kevinbacon!" captioned the actor's loving wife alongside her compilation video. Sedgwick's play on words regarding her husband's last name and the food is tongue in cheek since he doesn't eat bacon anymore.

"I no longer eat goat and I no longer eat pig, because I have goats and I have pigs. My wife [...] is like, 'We can't get any more animals, because you're going to stop eating everything," Bacon divulged to a media outlet in 2023.

Aside from dishing the scoop on his diet, the "Leave the World Behind" talent has also spoken about fitness and working out. On May 29, Bacon took to Instagram to share a humorous video about how he finally got a designated workout station on the set of a project he had been working on.

Talking to his followers from the comfort of his trailer in a white t-shirt, Bacon said, "You know, you spend a lot of time on the set. If you're doing a TV show or a movie, 12 hours usually is the minimum. So it's very hard to stay in shape, and there's a lot of free food, which, which doesn't help."

Continuing, he disclosed, "And, you know, you look at these guys with these incredible bodies. I mean, bodies that I can only dream of…Oh, no. Let's, let's cut that part. But, I say to myself, 'I really wish that I had a gym on the set.' And some of these guys really do."

Bacon then went on to gush over the amazing gyms that some production teams set up for their actors on their sets. He shared how he asked the production team of the project he was filming if they could build him a gym, too, expressing how he wanted to stay in shape.

"They did it. So I thought that maybe I would give you a tour because it's pretty cool. Ready?" Bacon mentioned. He then flipped the camera around to give his followers a glimpse of his "gym," which turned out to only be two dumbbell weights and one 15kg kettlebell. Ending his tongue-in-cheek comedic video, Bacon quipped, "Tour's over."

Although Kevin Bacon was only joking and being sarcastic in the aforementioned video, from his recent shirtless selfie it's pretty clear to see that the actor does, in fact, take working out seriously and takes good care of himself.
