It's been almost 27 years since "The Bodyguard" hit theaters, and after all this time, KEVIN COSTNER has dropped a BOMBSHELL

June 24, 2019

 In the iconic poster for the movie, that was not WHITNEY HOUSTON he was carrying.

He said, quote, "She'd gone home and that was her double, and her head was buried into my shoulder, which was appropriate anyway.  She was frightened."

Kevin said he was the one who picked out that image, but that the studio execs didn't like it at first, because you couldn't see Whitney's face, and she was such a big star.  But he insisted, and eventually got his way.
