    • QUOTES (7)

      • Stephen Colbert: What about politics for you? Some actors take that path, if you're civic minded. Do you think you'd ever run for office...
        Kevin Costner: No, never. I've lived a pretty colorful life.

      • Stephen Colbert: You're a Hollywood liberal, right? You're a Hollywood leftie liberal, pinko commie, let's hug and kiss each other.
        Kevin Costner: I don't really think of myself that way.

      • Kevin Costner: It's the fabric of America. If we don't vote, we are going to stand alone.

      • Stephen Colbert: (to Kevin Costner) Let's decide who's President right now, you and me. Because who should decide more-you have two Oscars and I have an a**load of Peabody's.

      • Stephen Colbert: (discussing Costner film "Swing Vote") So, it's a presidential election and it's come down to literally a tie and one person has to decide who wins...that's so refreshing that a white man finally has a voice in the political process. That takes courage to tell a story like that.

      • Stephen Colbert: (to Kevin Costner) I'm a big fan, longtime fan. It's hard to recognize a big star like this in person because I'm used to seeing you in baseball outfits or with wolves.
        Kevin Costner: Like Halloween.

      • Stephen: Tonight: My new spider will be on this show. I will celebrate from a distance. Then: My feature for high net worth views Colbert Platinum, it's a good way to pass the time while you're waiting for your inheritance. And my guest is Kevin Costner, I assume the interview will go $50 million over budget. You know what they say, if it aint broke, let me at it. This is the Colbert Report.
