Kevin Bacon’s Five Degrees of LA Westside Separation

The good folks at KFI’s Tim Conway Jr. have an expression they like to use whenever a big compliment is bandied about on-air. The rallying cry is pronounced “Huuuuge shout out” and hash-tagged #hugeshoutout.

In the latest installment of Los Angeles magazine’s celebrity “LA Story” feature to go online, actor Kevin Bacon adds his #hso honors to the well-praised burgh of Los Feliz. His as-told-to is also notable for the fact that within Tinseltown, home-to-home migrations for actors and actor-couples usually progress in the opposite compass direction:

I don’t want to be snobbish about the westside, but as we started to move east over the years – from Point Dume to Santa Monica to Brentwood to Larchmont to Los Feliz – we felt more and more at home. We love Griffith Park now as much as we love Central Park. Our place in LA honestly feels to us like a vacation almost. We adore it.

All this must have also been sweet music also to LA magazine editor-at-large Ed Liebowitz, who compiled the Bacon piece. We’re not sure if the author and his wife are still living in Los Feliz today, but he has in the past referenced his own domicile there.
