Kyra Sedgwick Is A ‘Grinch’

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – She plays a tough-nosed interrogator on The Closer, but Kyra Sedgwick still has a soft spot for some traditional televised Christmas classics.

On The Closer, Sedgwick deals with high-profile and gruesome murder cases, but when she heads home for the holidays with her husband, Kevin Bacon, the screen star celebrates by watching shows that are much more silly than serious.

Sedgwick says, “We used to watch A Charlie Brown Christmas, and the fact that we don’t anymore makes me cry! It’s because my kids are practically grown up. And our number one show is Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas. If they could make anything as good as that it’d be genius.”

And though she enjoys the Christmas classics, when it comes to the actual celebration, Sedgwick’s a bit of a Grinch herself.

She says, “We always go away for Christmas. We’re not big fans of the holiday – we give each other one present and that’s it.”

The two-hour Christmas episode of The Closer airs tonight (Dec. 3) on TNT.
