Kevin Bacon has a "fruit trick" up his sleeve — and he's sharing it with his fans!

On Saturday, the You Should Have Left actor, 62, shared a clip on social media demonstrating how he prepares his daily "morning mango." In the video, Bacon whispers throughout the process in the kitchen, so as not to wake up his sleeping wife Kyra Sedgwick.

"I just wanted to show you my morning mango routine," he quietly tells the camera at the start of the 90-second video. "I'm sorry if you already know this trick."

The movie star then showed how he cuts the fruit, scoring the orange mango's flesh into cubes and popping it inside out in order to eat it. "My favorite part," says Bacon, his early-morning hair in comfortable disarray. "No stringy parts in your teeth."

Bacon employs a slice of lime to squeeze over the fresh-cut mango, then sprinkles ("too much") chili powder and sea salt on top. Digging into his prepared mango, Bacon says it's "pretty good" as he smiles at the camera. He signs off, "Hope you have a good day."

"Forgive the whispering, someone (and I’ll name names here @kikkosedg) was still asleep. I often like to have a little #MorningMango. What’s your favorite fruit trick? Hope you enjoy the accidental #ASMR," he captioned the clip on Instagram.

Being considerate of his wife's sleeping schedule while he makes his breakfast is just one of the ways Bacon maintains a strong relationship with Sedgwick, 55. Last month, he opened up to PEOPLE about having each other's back in their marriage.

"Kyra and I believe in each other as actors, as directors and as talent. She's never been anything other than supportive of me," he said. "She doesn't have a competitive bone in her body when it comes to me. She takes my successes as hers. I'm the same way."

The actor tied the knot with Sedgwick in 1988 and they are the proud parents to daughter Sosie, 28, an actress, and son Travis, 31, a musician.

Bacon also shared that when it comes to the menu at their household, they often collaborate.

"We cook, we clean, we decide what we're having for the next meal, and then we cook it, clean it and decide what we're having for the next meal," said Bacon. "... Her partnership is invaluable. I found someone I was meant to be with."
