Everyone in Hollywood can be connected to Kevin Bacon by six degrees or fewer — or at least that's the conceit behind the Kevin Bacon game. According to an analysis of IMDB data though, Kevin Bacon is only the 444th most connected person in Hollywood.

Here are the 40 most connected people in Hollywood, along with the average number of degrees it would take to link them to anyone else in Hollywood, according to Oracle of Bacon, a computer program developed by graduate students at the University of Virginia. You'll note they are mostly white male actors of a certain age — and Patrick Reynolds, the man behind the website, told BuzzFeed why.
