Kevin Bacon isn’t a fan of the “normie” lifestyle.

The “Footloose” actor, 65, recalled the moment he disguised himself as an ordinary Joe in a desperate bid to see what life was like for the non-Hollywood elite.

“I’m not complaining, but I have a face that’s pretty recognizable,” Bacon told Vanity Fair. “Putting my hat and glasses on is only going to work to a certain extent.”

“I went to a special effects makeup artist, had consultations, and asked him to make me a prosthetic disguise.”

The actor’s disguise consisted of a prosthetic nose, fake teeth, and glasses.

Decked out in full disguise, the actor headed to Los Angeles tourist hotspot The Grove for an afternoon of shopping.

But he soon faced the horror of horrors — his disguise worked too well.

“Nobody recognized me. People were kind of pushing past me, not being nice. Nobody said, ‘I love you,’” Bacon said.

“I had to wait in line to, I don’t know, buy a f–king coffee or whatever,” he moaned. “I was like, ‘This sucks. I want to go back to being famous.’”

Being famous isn’t new to Bacon, who has been a household name since securing his big break in 1984 with the hit film film “Footloose” at age 26.

The leading role soon opened the gates for countless TV shows and films to follow.

His career has been so prolific that it spawned a trivia game called “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon” where the goal was to link any actor to Kevin Bacon in less than six roles.

And fame runs in his family.

The actor’s father Edmund Bacon was an established urban planner who even graced the cover of TIME Magazine — something that spurred Kevin to dabble in Hollywood.

“In terms of giving credit to my parents, and course I give all the credit to them, my mother was very much on the artistic side and really encouraged acting,” he told the outlet.

“They both encouraged as much creativity as possible in everything — dance, music, theater, painting, sculpture, whatever.”
