Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick

Perhaps the most widely publicized victims of rogue financier Bernard Madoff's Ponzi scheme were actors Kyra Sedgwick and her husband, Kevin Bacon, who had managed to stay out of the tabloids for many years.

"I think the interesting thing about it was that I always thought, ‘We're so boring. We should be in the tabloids more. C'mon honey, let's have a scandal,'" the actress told the Associated Press.

Sedgwick and Bacon remained upbeat in light of their losses, but in early 2009, Bacon was quoted as saying he needed to work "for obvious reasons."
