They say time heals all wounds.
Apparently, so does sex!
At least, that's what Kevin Bacon said got him through some tough times. Back in 2008, he and his wife Kyra Sedgwick lost a LOT of money in Bernie Madoff's $65-billion dollar Ponzi scheme.

The financial fraud also cost celebs like Larry King and John Malkovich a pretty penny.
But Kevin and Kyra knew that love don't cost a thing. He told GQ:
"We kind of went, 'Holy s**t. Let's . . . I don't know. Let's have sex or something. It's free!'"
He's not wrong!
But he also admits getting through the financial loss wasn't as easy as gettin' some! He told Details magazine:
"I'm not going to say it didn't have its emotional downsides. But we're both young, and we both had the ability to work and roll up our sleeves and start putting the pieces back together. The truth is that we went through it together."
It's been quite a few years since the scandal, and Kevin Bacon is only getting busier (get it?) by taking on more roles and projects!

But with his honest face, bright blue eyes, and childlike wonder — can you really blame them?!
Just look at one stud straddling another (above), Kim Jong-un is the spitting image of a young Forest Whitaker!
It almost makes us wish we were born a horse's saddle!
Whereas editors from China's People's Daily & South Korea's The Korea Times, on the other
hand hoof, feel more like a horse's rear-end!!
Faux news source The Onion named the North Korean leader 2012's sexiest man alive several weeks ago and those two Asian publications reprinted the article without realizing it was satirical!
The Onion describes their reasons for their decision

We guess he totally was his brother's keeper.
Bernie Madoff's brother Peter Madoff is scheduled to plead guilty in the criminal case resulting from the Ponzi scheme that escalated into a multibillion-dollar fraud.
Peter Madoff is the former chief compliance officer at the private investment arm of Bernard Madoff's business.
Peter's lawyer had argued he was totally unaware of his brother's ponzi scheme and this his wife had lost millions of dollars in the scheme herself.
Federal papers show however that Peter Madoff's signature is on a paper that reads he has plead guilty. If he is indeed pleading guilty then Peter Madoff will forfeit all personal and private property and will serve ten years in jail.
That is a loooooooooong time!!!
His brother Bernard Madoff pleaded guilty to fraud and is currently in jail and is serving a 150-year sentence.
Later guys. See ya when we see ya!
