The Truth About Kevin Costner’s Marriage

From “The Bodyguard” and “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves” to “Field of Dreams” and “Dances with Wolves,” Kevin Costner starred in some of the biggest box office hits of the late ’80s and early ’90s. Of course, his second wife Christine Baumgartner was still in her teenage years during this period, which perhaps explains why the actor’s career — to paraphrase Shania Twain — don’t impress her much.

Luckily, instead of being insulted, Costner appears to find this rather endearing. Discussing their relationship on the promotional trail for 2016 movie “Criminal,” the Oscar winner told Express, “Christine, who was not involved in the film business at all, has been most comfortable for me to be with despite the age difference. She had no knowledge of other actors or my movies. That was refreshing. At that point I was a guy who made a movie six days a week with 17-hour days, who had no time for anything else.”

Baumgartner obviously made quite the impact as Costner soon gave up this workaholic approach to spend more time with her and their three kids. He added, “I didn’t make a film for four years during and after the births of my second family. I am less concerned with success on screen than being around for the next 20 years to take care of them.”
