Kevin Costner protected Whitney Houston in The Bodyguard, but he also looked out for her in real life too. While appearing on an episode of Anderson, airing this Thursday, the actor discussed his co-star's passing and revealed he never stopped caring about her over the years.
Like the rest of us, he was on the outside looking in on her life, but when he heard she was struggling with addiction, he reached out. Several times throughout the "last seven or eight years," the actor wrote letters of encouragement for Whitney to stay sober. Whether or not she actually read them is still a mystery.
That's not all he had to say about the tragic loss of a musical icon either. Anderson Cooper asked about Costner's eulogy at the singer's funeral, during which he specifically addressed Bobbi Kristina. Find out why the actor sympathizes with her and felt it was necessary to address her at that moment … AFTER THE JUMP!
