With over three decades of marriage under their belts, Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick know a thing or two about silly disagreements.
And with their wealth of marriage knowledge, the A-list couple kicked off Jimmy Kimmel Live 's new segment, "Dumb Couple Fights," which sees stars reenacting real arguments between romantic partners across the country.
The hilarious scene played out on Wednesday's episode of the ABC late-night talk show with Bacon, 61, and Sedgwick, 54, stepping into the shoes of Chris and Benjamin, respectively — a real-life couple who had a dumb fight while sharing a pint of ice cream.
Benjamin, a Jimmy Kimmel Live staffer who the scene was based on, set up the skit's premise: "My boyfriend Chris came back from the store with two pints of ice cream: cookies and cream, which we both love, and mint chocolate chip, which he loves and I hate. But when I went to serve myself some cookies and cream he insisted on sharing that pint, because it was obvious he was just trying to get more for himself."
From there, Bacon and Sedgwick took things into their own hands, sitting down with their own bowls of ice cream before beginning to bicker.
The duo — who have been married since 1988 — took the segment to the next level when Bacon decided to grab his ice cream with his bare hands, throwing it into Sedgwick's bowl.
"Wow, that was a heck of a way to begin this," host Jimmy Kimmel, 52, said after watching the scene. "I don't know if you can get an Emmy for that, but I sure hope you do. That was really beautiful."
In addition to splitting household chores, Bacon and Sedgwick have also been using their time during the outbreak to give back.
Bacon's charity, SixDegrees.org, is taking donated funds and using that money to support local businesses and feed frontline workers.
"It's a pretty cool idea because a very small donation actually supports restaurants and the restaurant workers, and then they deliver meals to our healthcare workers in hospitals," Bacon said. "It gives in two ways; in one way, you're supporting our healthcare workers, providing food for them. They need the fuel, they're out there, kicking ass every day. And then you're also supporting these small restaurants who are struggling."
Jimmy Kimmel Live airs weeknights (11:30 p.m. ET) on ABC.
