Kevin Costner Says Whitney Houston Wasn’t on ‘The Bodyguard’ Poster — It Was Her Double!
Kevin Costner revealed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that the woman we thought was Whitney Houston in the poster for The Bodyguard, was in fact her body double!
You know the image, right?! That photo where he’s carrying her out of a nightclub.
“That wasn’t even Whitney actually,” he said. “She had gone home and that was her double, and her head was buried into my shoulder, which was appropriate anyway. She was frightened.”
He also added that that particular scene was great for a poster. “I picked that picture out because my friend Ben Glass took it,” he added. “I sent it to Warner Bros. and I go, ‘There’s the poster.’ Because it was so evocative. It wasn’t special photography; it wasn’t anything.”
