Entertainment News Today Headlines: Whitney Houston Wasn’t The Female Featured On Bodyguard Poster, According To Kevin Costner
Kevin Costner, 64, has revealed that his “Bodyguard” co-star, Whitney Houston, wasn’t the famous female on the iconic poster. He disclosed this news after nearly 30 years since its release date and fans are in shock. Costner opened up about the popular misconception to EW saying it was actually her stunt double that appeared on the movie poster.
“That wasn’t even Whitney actually,” Costner told the outlet. “She had gone home and that was her double, and her head was buried into my shoulder, which was appropriate anyway. She was frightened.”
In the poster, Costner’s character, Frank Farmer, is seen pulling Houston’s character, Rachel Marron, to safety after a riot broke out in the nightclub while she was performing on stage. Meanwhile, Costner takes credit for pushing the photo on executives who weren’t immediately thrilled with the idea. He said:
“I picked that picture out because my friend Ben Glass took it…I sent it to Warner Brothers and I go, ‘There’s the poster.’ Because it was so evocative. It wasn’t special photography; it wasn’t anything.”
‘They didn’t like it at first because you couldn’t see Whitney’s face.”
