Kevin Bacon is convinced celebrity marriages can last - despite the high number of Hollywood break-ups.

In recent months Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston, Charlie Sheen and DENISE RICHARDS, and Shannon Elizabeth and JOSEPH REITMAN have all ended their unions.

But the WOODSMAN actor - who has been married to wife KYRA SEDGEWICK for an impressive 17 years - dismisses the presumption Tinseltown marriages are more likely to fail than succeed as a myth.

He tells PAGESIX.COM, "I doubt show business marriages are less successful than others. It's just that they're very public when they fail."
