Costner Reveals Bodyguard Movie Poster is Not Actually Whitney

Not only was Kevin Costner the one who pushed for Whitney to sing Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You" in Bodyguard, he's also the guy that handpicked the shot they would end up using for the official movie poster. A poster that didn't have Whitney even on it!

“That wasn’t even Whitney actually,” Costner told EW “She had gone home and that was her double, and her head was buried into my shoulder, which was appropriate anyway. She was frightened.”

Costner said a friend of his, Ben Glass, took the picture the day the scene was shot and Costner instantly knew the evocative image should be the movie’s poster but he had to fight for it because Whitney's face isn't there to sell the movie.

Also who knew it wasn't THE Bodyguard. No "The". Huh.
