Kevin Costner: Family appearance in Cannes

Kevin Costner has made the Cannes red carpet a family affair. He brought five of his seven children with him to the “Horizon” premiere.

A rare sight on the red carpet: Kevin Costner (69) brought very special guests with him to the premiere of his latest film “Horizon: An American Saga” on Sunday evening. He posed for photographers at the Cannes Film Festival with five of his seven children.

The family had probably coordinated their clothing

“Horizon” is a very special project for Costner that he has worked on for years. Not only does he play the lead role, but he is also the producer and director and co-wrote the script. An important evening for the Hollywood star, which was underlined by the participation of his children. Costner, who still wore a Western-style mustache, was accompanied by his daughters Annie (40) and Lily (37), whom he shares with his first wife Cindy (67), as well as Cayden (17), Grace (13) and Hayes (15), who come from his second marriage to Christine Baumgartner (50). Only son Joe (36) from his first marriage and son Liam (26) from a relationship with Bridget Rooney (62) were missing.

The patchwork clan was also an eye-catcher in terms of fashion: Costner and his sons wore classic black tuxedos with bow ties, while the daughters wore light-colored dresses. In addition to the 69-year-old, the focus in Cannes was particularly on his son Hayes, as he plays the younger version of Costner’s role in the film. The 15-year-old is making his acting debut.

Seven minutes of standing ovation

In the film hall itself, things also got emotional for the Hollywood star when he received a seven-minute standing ovation for the western drama, as the industry portal “Variety” reported, among others. The actor had tears in his eyes because of the applause and numerous shouts of “Kevin”. During his speech he then thanked the audience and promised “three more” parts of the “Horizon” series. “I’m sorry you had to clap for so long to get me to understand that I should speak,” Costner said with a laugh. “Such good people. Such a beautiful moment, not only for me, but also for the actors who accompanied me, for people who believed in me and continued to work.”

He further emphasized how incredible his stay in Cannes was for him: “There is no place like this. I will never forget it – neither will my children.” The festival also became something very special for him because of his children, who watched him from the front row. “They all look so beautiful, are so well dressed. They are so pretty,” he gushed as a proud father.

“Horizon” marks the Oscar winner’s return to feature film directing since “Open Range – Weites Land” from 2003. The western can be seen in German cinemas from August 22nd.
