Mix Up Star: KEVIN COSTNER

Updated: Feb 23


Age: 66

Birthday: 18th January


Kevin Costner is an American actor, director, producer and musician. Costner had a widely successful period in his career with starring roles in Field of Dreams (1989), Dances with Wolves (1990), for which he won two Academy Awards, JFK (1991) and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991). In 1995, Costner starred in and co-produced Waterworld. The most expensive film ever made at the time, it was a box office disappointment (which nonetheless made a small profit) that marked a downturn in his career. He has since starred in a string of unsuccessful films which failed to propel his career forward as a leading man; Message in a Bottle (1999), Thirteen Days (2000), Dragonfly (2002), Rumor Has It (2005), The Guardian (2006) and McFarland, USA (2015). However, he has had supporting parts in critically favored films including Man of Steel (2013) and Hidden Figures (2016).

On television, Costner portrayed Devil Anse Hatfield in the miniseries Hatfields & McCoys (2012), winning the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie.
