During a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday, Sedgwick may have given a vital clue as to what makes a healthy marriage work so well for so long: knowing which things you shouldn't engage in together. Sedgwick told host Jimmy Kimmel that Bacon recently bought her a ukulele as a present, but she opted to be self-taught rather than have her musician husband teach her how to play. The actress—who is currently appearing as a guest star on the comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine—explained that in the beginning of their marriage Bacon attempted to teach her how to drive stick shift and it did not go well. "He was really mean," she lovingly reminisced, "He was just a really tough teacher!" Lesson learned!
