Kevin Bacon says having a partner you can always count on is something he truly values.

"Kyra and I believe in each other as actors, as directors and as talent. She's never been anything other than supportive of me," Bacon tells PEOPLE. "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, 62, married Kyra Sedgwick, 54, in 1988 and they are the proud parents to daughter Sosie, 28, an actress, and son Travis, 31, a musician.

"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," he says with a laugh.

But there's no one he'd rather be stuck with. "Her partnership is invaluable," says Bacon. "I found someone I was meant to be with."

The actor, who skyrocketed to fame after playing rebel Ren in 1984's Footloose and went on to star in hits like A Few Good Men, Apollo 13 and Mystic River, says he still loves acting and has no plans on slowing down.

"A lot of people who are my age are thinking about pumping the brakes a little. I'm really looking down the road," says Bacon. "I don't have much of a rearview mirror."
