With her award-winning show starting its fourth season, and her 20th anniversary to Kevin Bacon around the corner, Kyra Sedgwick has it all. But the success of The Closer has its downside, too, she tells Redbook in its July 15 issue.
“The last thing I wanted to do was move to L.A. for six months of the year,” she says. “But now I have to live with the wonderful success of it all and the bitter-sweetness of that success – because success means I’m not home.”
Still, she’s not complaining – especially not about her family.
“If someone had told me I was going to meet the man I was going to marry at 23 … and have a child, I would have told them they were out of their mind,” she says. “And here I am in my 40s with two grown children.”
And she’s confident about her future in an industry notoriously tough on women past their 30s.
“I know I’m not going to get offered all the things I want; I will always have to struggle for them,” she says. “But there are still great parts out there, and I think I look good and I feel good. So I’m feeling good about that.”
