Kevin & Whitney's Biodatas
F u l l name: Kevin Michael Costner
Kevin was born in Lynwood, California, on January 18, 1955, the third child of Bill Costner, a ditch digger and ultimately an electric line servicer for Southern California Edison, and Sharon Costner. He has 2 older brothers (middle brother died at birth) and was raised Baptist. Costner was not academically inclined. Rather, he enjoyed sports, took piano lessons, wrote poetry and sang in the First Baptist Choir. He has stated that a viewing of the film How the West Was Won at the age of seven had "formed" his childhood. At 18, he built his own canoe and paddled his way down the rivers that Lewis & Clark followed to the Pacific. Despite his present height, he was only 5'2" when he graduated high school. Nonetheless, he still managed to be a basketball, football and baseball star. In 1973, he enrolled at California State University at Fullerton, where he majored in business. (more info here)
M o v i e s famous for: Field of Dreams, Dances with Wolves, The Bodyguard
F u l l name: Whitney Elizabeth Houston
Whitney Houston was born into a musical family on 9 August 1963, in Newark, New Jersey, the daughter of gospel star Cissy Houston and ex-army serviceman John Houston. Her cousin is singing star Dionne Warwick. She has 2 older brothers. Whitney began singing in the choir at her church, The New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, as a young child and by the age of 15 was singing backing vocals professionally with her mother on Chaka Khan's 1978 hit, 'I'm Every Woman'. She went on to provide backing vocals for Lou Rawls, Jermaine Jackson and her own mother and worked briefly as a model, appearing on the cover of 'Seventeen' magazine in 1981.

Kevin's Eulogy To His One True Love, Whitney
Watch eulogy here
Read full transcript of Kevin's eulogy here
Ode to Love’s Regret
Oh! Nymph of my dream! Glorious moonbeam!
My heart aches, each second, each minute, each hour, each day,
Too soon, too soon, have you gone away!
I should’ve held her aye, – forever,
I should’ve held her close, closer.
I should’ve kissed her today, tonight, tomorrow,
I should’ve whispered in her ear, –
“Say what they want; we don’t care.”
I should’ve let my feelings flow,
Like the river, gently travelling
Into endless space and time,
Freely, without thinking, just singing, and just glistening
Under the sun, and with a passion undone,
And with a love compared to none.
Oh, how I wanted her; how my heart yearned for her,
How she excited me, how she delighted me.
She was so beautiful, utterly divine,
Heavenly creature, perfect, sublime,
Goddess of Song, you were mine, yes, you were mine!
Why did I free her from my arms?
Why did I let her walk away from my charms?
Wish, Oh how I wish she were here today,
I will suffer long and for always, aye.
I think of her, my heart is bursting,
My body is on fire, my brain is scorching,
I want to touch her, taste her, now and forever,
When will my soul stop its quiver….
This pain, I cannot bear any longer,
I die each day as I remember
The piercing image of her beauty and her smile,
Come, stay with me, and rest awhile.
No, stay with me, and rest forever,
For I shall never ever be the same
Without you, – Life – there is no gain.

Après un concert à la Cigale en 2011, l’acteur revient entouré de son groupe Modern West pour une nouvelle tournée en Europe. A Paris, l’ensemble devait se produire au Trabendo le 15 février 2013. Concert finalement annulé !
Acteur célèbre à travers le monde pour ses rôles dans Danse avec les Loups, The Bodyguard, Robin des Bois, JFK ou encore Les Incorruptibles, Kevin Costner poursuit également une carrière de chanteur. Avec son groupe Modern West, il tourne à travers les USA depuis quelques années déjà. "Au cinéma, je joue qui on me demande d’incarner. Mais le vrai moi s’exprime sur scène quand je joue et chante devant un public, déclare la star. C’est là que vous verrez le plus clairement qui je suis."
Après un concert à la Cigale en septembre 2011, la rencontre avec ses fans français devait se faire le 15 février 2013 au Trabendo. L’occasion de découvrir les chansons issues des albums aux sonorités rock-country Untold Truths (2009), From Where I Stand (2011), ou encore Famous for Killing Each Other qui n’est autre que la B.O. de la série Hatfields & McCoys(2012), co-produite et interprétée par le beau Kevin. Ce concert unique a malheureusement été annulé.
La carrière d’acteur de Kevin Costner connaît un succès fulgurant puisqu’il obtient vite des premiers rôles d’envergure jusqu’à celui d’Eliot Ness dans Les Incorruptibles en 1987. Son jeu reste toujours très retenu, épuré et sans fioriture, souligné par une voix posée.
Il entreprend de se lancer dans la réalisation, en 1990, en adaptant le roman de son ami Michael Blake Danse avec les loups qui remporte un succès impressionnant, en plus de plusieurs oscars (dont celui du meilleur film).
Redevenu acteur par la suite, il joue dans Robin des Bois : Prince des voleurs réalisé par son ami Kevin Reynolds qu’il retrouvera pour la douloureuse expérience de Waterworld qui fut un échec autant commercial que critique. Il a également tourné sous la direction d’Oliver Stone, de Lawrence Kasdan et surtout de Clint Eastwood qui lui offre le premier rôle de Un monde parfait.

New Kevney Tweet for Today!
@SunTropical_7vw: Kevin Costner speech was so beautiful he said so much great incredible things about Whitney he really love her &I think she loves him too
Joined: Apr 2012
Hortensia, thanks for the update. Unfortunately my high school French courses couldn't get me past the first few words in that article you posted, but luckily there's always Google Translator. Here's the third paragraph from the news article above that I've translated (with Google's help) which really stands out for me:
"Actor famous throughout the world for [his] roles in Dances with Wolves, The Bodyguard, Robin Hood, JFK or The Untouchables Kevin Costner also pursuing a singing career. With his band Modern West, it runs across the U.S. in recent years. 'In film, I play [what] I'm asked to embody., But the real me is expressed on stage when I play and sing in public, says the star. This is where you will see more clearly who I am.'"
So what Kevin seems to be saying is that his true self comes through when he performs--when he sings. So to me that sounds like an affirmation of what we here on Kevney have been saying all along. Those early songs he sang were for Whitney, and they told the real story of his and Whitney's relationship. Hint, hint: "Moon so High," "Find That Girl," "Let Me Be the One," "Palisades." Maybe a few others too.
See, I told y'all--we've been right all along! Kevin's gonna spill all of the tea someday, and we'll all be the better for it.
