Bacon Number Madness: Results of Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Jennifer Lawrence
What's your "Bacon Number?"
That is what everyone is asking themselves at this very moment.
The Bacon number doesn't literally mean how much piece of bacon you are in the past number of days or whatever, it means how many times a celebrity has been with actor Kevin Bacon in movies.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the search engine has launched a new tool known as the Bacon number. By typing in any actor's name followed by the words "Bacon number," Google will tell you the degree of separation between that actress/actor and Bacon.

According to CNBC, this is a play on the John Guare play "Six Degrees of Separation," where any two people in the world are no more than six acquaintances or links from another person. In this case, it's within six degrees, or connections, of the actor Kevin Bacon, who has been in so many movies that pretty much anyone in Hollywood can be connected to him within six degrees.
The origins of the game may stem back to a January 1994 interview Bacon did with "Premiere" magazine, where he famously said that he's worked with pretty much everyone in Hollywood or someone who's worked with that person. Like many other great technology success stories, the game "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" was started by a bunch of college students. Shortly after the Bacon interview aired, three students at Albright College were watching what could arguably be Bacon's most famous movie, "Footloose," and came up with the game, which they turned into their own "stupid party trick." That turned into a board game, a book, a charitable organization and now - a Google tool.
