Kevin Bacon thinks fame is "weird" and "bizarre"

X-Men: First Class actor Kevin Bacon has admitted that he finds fame very ''bizarre'' and "weird' and that although he's had tough times in his career he's grown used to it.

Speaking to the Metro, the 55-year-old star said: ''Fame is very, very bizarre. If you just got it all of a sudden, out of nowhere, you would be like: 'This is very weird.'

''Then you kind of get used to it and think: 'This is what my life is.''

However, Kevin admitted that he would like escape from the media sometimes, adding : ''If I had superpowers, invisibility would be a totally cool thing. The idea of going through the world invisibly would be so fascinating to me.''

Bacon further admitted that any mistakes that he has made in his career are all his own fault, stating: ''I think that part of being a man is taking responsibility for your successes and your failures.

''So when it has come to the times in my life when things haven't gone as well as I would have wanted them to - for example, after 'Footloose' - that was nobody else's fault but mine.

''I just never considered stopping. I never thought: 'Well I'm going to give myself a couple of years,' or whatever.''
