Wants to get at least six degrees away from Kevin.
Last Wednesday, departing Disney CEO Michael Eisner was trying to have a private dinner with his wife and two other people at Lever House. He didn’t seem to mind that he was seated next to Harper’s Bazaar editor Glenda Bailey and Proenza Schouler designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez. But when Kevin Bacon and his wife, Kyra Sedgwick, were shown to the booth beside him, he flagged down the maître d’ and asked to be relocated upstairs, a section that’s usually considered Siberia. “Mr. Eisner requested a quieter table, so we moved him to the private dining room,” said Lever House partner John McDonald. It’s unclear whether he would have left altogether had Lever House regular Michael Ovitz walked in. —Beth Landman
