While celebrating the premiere of his show I Love Dick on Thursday, Kevin Bacon had a very special date on the red carpet: his daughter, Sosie Bacon. While posing together at the Linwood Dunn Theater in LA, the 25-year-old 13 Reasons Why star couldn’t help but goof off a little bit in front of photographers, and (as usual) we couldn’t help but notice that she’s the perfect mix of her superstar parents. Kevin, who shares Sosie with wife of 27 years Kyra Sedgwick, has brought his daughter along to plenty of fun events, from a Knicks game with Norman Reedus to the Golden Globe Awards (where she served as Miss Golden Globe in 2014!). You might as well get used to seeing Sosie around now, because with all of the roles she’s been racking up recently, there’s probably going to be a lot more of her in all of our futures.

Eventually he got around to the quote that Twitter is going to go crazy about, which essentially is “players who were raised by their mommas wear earrings to look like them.”
Not a good look. Not a good look at all. But I can’t really blame him. He’s 87 years old, what do you expect a guy that age to say? I don’t think he mean’t any harm by it. So I’ll give him a free pass, but just know the internet is going to lose their minds.
