Biography of Kevin Costner

Costner was born in Lynwood on January 18, 1955, and spent his formative years in Compton. One of his older brothers passed away in infancy, making him the youngest of three sons. He was born to Sharon Rae, a social worker, and William Costner, an electrician and, later, a utility executive at Southern California Edison. Costner has German, English, Irish, Scottish, and Welsh ancestry from his father’s side and English, Irish, Scottish, and Welsh from his mother’s. Costner comes from a family of Baptists. He wasn’t great in school, but he did join the First Baptist Choir, play the piano, writes poetry, and enjoy sports. He claims that the 1963 film How the West Was Won “shaped” his early years.

He spent his adolescence moving throughout California with his family as his father’s profession advanced, which he says caused him to “lose a lot of confidence” and force him to constantly forge new relationships with peers. After settling in Ventura, Costner moved to Visalia. He was a member of the Mt. Whitney High School marching band. Costner moved to Orange County in his teens and attended Villa Park High School, where he eventually graduated in 1973. He graduated in 1978 with a BA in marketing and finance from California State University, Fullerton. During his time at CSUF, he pledged his allegiance to the Delta Chi fraternity and was initiated as a brother.

After graduating from college, Costner wed Cindy Silva, a performer at Disneyland who had previously played Cinderella. After spending their honeymoon in Puerto Vallarta, the couple happened to sit next to actor Richard Burton, who had paid for a whole row of seats to himself so that he could enjoy some quiet time on the flight back. After Costner had completed reading Burton’s book, the two men arranged to meet. Costner studied Burton intently and approached when Burton made a motion, even though he had not yet told his wife about his intention to become an actor. Costner said to Burton that he hoped to escape the drama that always seemed to surround Burton, and he wondered aloud if that was something actors had to deal with. Burton shot back, “Blue eyes are in both of our genes. If I had to guess, I’d say that you’ll be alright.”

When the plane landed, Costner and his wife were waiting for a cab, and Burton’s limousine drew up to the curb. With that, Burton bid Costner farewell and the two actors never crossed paths again. Costner says that Burton had an impact on his career. Costner, encouraged by his wife, quit his work as a marketing executive and started taking acting classes five nights a week. This marketing gig lasted all of 30 days. To help support the marriage, he worked as a truck driver, on fishing boats, and at celebrity residences in Hollywood in exchange for tuition so that he could improve his acting talents.

Career & Profession

Sizzle Beach, U.S.A. (also titled Hot Malibu Summer) was Costner’s first film role. Despite being shot over the winter of 1978–1979, the picture didn’t come out until 1981, and it was later re-released in 1986. Many people mistakenly assume that Costner made his film debut in The Touch (1983) alongside Eve Lilith and Andra Millian due to release issues and a lack of evidence. In the film directed by Ron Howard and starring Kevin Costner, “Night Shift,” Costner had a small role (1982). Henry Winkler, identified in the film’s credits as “Frat Boy No. 1,” makes an appearance at the film’s climax, a frat-style blowout party in a New York City mortuary. Costner, drink in hand, is bewildered by the abrupt end to the party.

In 1983, Costner had brief roles in both the nuclear holocaust film Testament and an ad for the Apple Lisa and Table for Five. Later, he was cast in The Big Chill, where he taped several flashback scenes that ultimately weren’t used. His character’s suicide pulls the rest of the cast members together, therefore he played Alex, the friend who took his own life. Director Lawrence Kasdan was friends with Costner and had promised him a part in an upcoming film. That became become Kevin Costner’s breakthrough performance in Silverado (1985). He also co-starred with Kiefer Sutherland in an hour-long special episode of Steven Spielberg’s Amazing Stories from the same year.

In 1987, with his roles as Eliot Ness, a federal agent, in The Untouchables and as the protagonist in the thriller No Way Out, Costner became a major movie star. Bull Durham (1988) and Field of Dreams (1989) were two baseball-themed films where he established himself as a leading man (1989). During the year 1990, he joined forces with fellow producer Jim Wilson to launch the company Tig Productions. Dances with Wolves, starring and directed by Costner, was Tig’s first film. There were twelve Oscar nominations for this film, and he took home two. Costner featured alongside Anthony Quinn and Madeleine Stowe in Tony Scott’s Revenge, which was released that same year. Costner had originally planned to direct the film.

Box office success or critical acclaim was achieved by the 1991 film Prince of Thieves, the 1991 Oliver Stone film JFK, the 1992 film The Bodyguard, and the 1993 film A Perfect World, directed by Clint Eastwood. In the 1994 biopic Wyatt Earp, which Kasdan directed, he played the titular character. The War, also from 1994, didn’t seem to be a big deal. Both of Costner’s science fiction/post-apocalyptic epics, Waterworld (1995) and The Postman (1997), were critical and commercial flops. Though Waterworld did well at the box office and was met with mixed reviews, The Postman was panned by critics and audiences alike and “won” five Golden Raspberry Awards (including “Worst Picture,” “Worst Actor,” and “Worst Director” for Costner). Ron Shelton, who had directed Costner in Bull Durham, cast him in the lead role of the golf comedy Tin Cup (1996).

He wrote the script for Air Force One and was cast as the President, but dropped out of the project to focus on completing The Postman. He made Harrison Ford an offer for the role himself. Together with Robin Wright, he starred in the 1999 film adaptation of Nicholas Sparks‘s novel Message in a Bottle. The movie was met with lukewarm reviews and barely made a profit at the box office.

Intimate Life

Costner has seven children from three different marriages. Costner met his future wife Cindy Silva in 1975, while they were both undergraduates, and the couple wed three years later. Joe (born in 1986), Annie (born in 1984), and Lily were all born during their marriage (b. 1988). After a long and unhappy marriage of 16 years, the pair finally split up in 1994. He dated political activist Birgit Cunningham after his divorce and had a son, Liam Timothy (born in 1996), with Bridget Rooney. He shared a house with Elle Macpherson, the supermodel, in 1996. Four years after the meeting, Costner tied the knot with model and handbag designer Christine Baumgartner on September 25, 2004, at his property in Aspen, Colorado. Cayden (born in 2007), Hayes (born in 2009), and Grace (born in 2010) are their children (b. 2010).
