  • This is when I stopped liking Kevin Costner

    I knew some people didn't like him, and he got bashed for Waterworld which I thought was a decent movie. But he was pretty rude to Michelle Yeoh, who is a total class act, great actress, and nice person. Yeoh turned to Costner at one point during her interview, seeking validation on a specific point about action stunts or acting with physical scenes, and Costner rather than nod, or saying uh-huh, or anything like that, looked non-plussed, turned to the audience and smirked with a can-you-believe-this chuckle to the audience, like "Is she really asking me a mere actor question? I'm an executive producer/director, who is she to be asking me this?" Not sure what was going through his mind of course, but he didn't respond to her direct question, he turned away from her and created an awkward mood. I'm sure Yeoh was offended, but she dealt with it with aplomb and grace, turning back to Leno without acknowledging the rebuff. I noticed that it wasn't long after that Costner continued to get bad reviews, so I think his head was swelling up and that was just another instance/example. After that, he returned more to acting and I think has humbled somewhat. Anyway, it was a cringeworthy moment and I always wondered what Yeoh was thinking.moreless
