Talk about six degrees being too close for comfort. Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick are the latest known victims of Bernie Madoff's $50 billion Ponzi scheme.

"I can confirm that they had investments with Mr. Madoff – no further specifics or comment beyond that," Bacon's rep, Allen Eichorn, told New York Magazine Tuesday.

As for reports that the couple lost everything except for their checking accounts and the land they own, Eichorn said, "Please, let's not speculate or rely on hearsay."

Other Hollywood elite have also been victimized by the fraudulent money manager: Steven Spielberg's Wunderkinder Foundation was hit, and DreamWorks' Jeffrey Katzenberg has lost "millions," reports the Wall Street Journal.
