LONDON: American actress Kyra Sedgwick got over the financial woes she and her hubby Kevin Bacon suffered this year, after she realised that celebrities hounded by the press were worse off. The Hollywood couple had made headlines after they lost their money to fraudulent financier Bernie Madoff, but she is now past it and even feels sorry for others who don’t have it so good.

Sedgwick, 43, said that the media hype surrounding their money problems was nothing compared to the constant pressure stars like Jennifer Aniston faced day-to-day. “We didn’t lose everything. Some people had it so much worse. I have such newfound empathy for people who are always in the spotlight, like Jennifer Aniston,” the Daily Express quoted her as telling Entertainment Weekly.
