Kevin Michael Costner was born on January 18, 1955, in California. The youngest son in a modest family living in Compton, little did his parents know that he would grow up to be one of Hollywood’s – if not the world’s – most notorious bachelors. When he married his college sweetheart at just 20 years old, it seemed as though he was set for life, especially following the arrival of their three children. But that was not to be – instead; it was just the beginning of a tumultuous love life that spanned across decades.
As Costner shot to fame, the steady path he had embarked on with his first wife veered swiftly and sharply off course, and it wasn’t long before he had gained a reputation as a “womanizer.” In this article, we document the long list – and it really is long – of beautiful, smart, and successful women that Costner has been affiliated with during the course of his life and exactly what – and who – caused him to leave that lifestyle in the past.
A Too-Good-to-Be-True College Sweetheart
Hollywood star and global heart-throb Kevin Costner’s love life started with Cindy Silva, who he met at California State University, Fullerton. She was a beautiful girl who was nominated for homecoming queen and also played Snow White at Disneyland, and Costner fell for her while they studied together in 1975. Three years later, in 1978, the couple married. Costner was just 20 years old at the time.
Over a decade later, in an interview in 1989, Costner said of Silva: “She was beautiful, she was sweet, she was smarter than me. She represented everything about women that I like.” The young but happy couple had three children together: Annie, Lily, and Joe. Unfortunately, however, the wedded bliss was not to last.
