Quotes by Kevin Costner
I don't think I ever take huge risks, though I'm not scared of doing so. I'm getting those familiar feelings, and I'm just going to enjoy the process of getting to know someone again. I'm glad movies aren't going to please everybody, they can't. But what they have to be is recognisable. I don't equate myself with a master painter, but I think you can recognise my films. Being a celebrity is probably the closest to being a beautiful woman as you can get. We still live with this unbelievable threat over our heads of nuclear war. I mean, are we stupid? Do we think that the nuclear threat has gone, that the nuclear destruction of the planet is not imminent? It's a delusion to think it's gone away. I think there are good men and women in all decades. We've grown cynical. And look at what we do to all our heroes: Churchill, FDR, Kennedy, they all had affairs. But heroic things happen every day. Field of Dreams is probably our generation's It's A Wonderful Life. I'm only interested in being a good actor and in being remembered for my best films, not for the way I look. But it seems inevitable in this line of work that I have to care about the way I look without getting obsessed about it. In America, politicians do whatever to get re-elected, and a lot of decisions that were being made at that time by Kennedy were certain not to get him re-elected. I've been around where I knew other actors were going to steal the scene, and I don't compete with them.
