‘Yellowstone’ Star Kevin Costner: “I grew up in such a conservative way.”

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Kevin Costner opened up about the Yellowstone series and what his future plans are. Part of those plans include learning what he never learned growing up, which he attributes to his conservative upbringing.

“I grew up in such a conservative way.”

“I just feel like, listen, when I was younger, I grew up in such a conservative way,” Costner told ET. “I actually thought the world was flat. I mean, I didn’t know what was possible for me — I came up with a really good foundation, but I thought there was a lot that I needed to learn. There’s a lot that I still need to learn… I mean, what I will regret when I do leave, shuffle off, you know, it’s probably books I’ll never have read, and songs I’ll never have heard, the stories. There’s stuff left.”

When asked about continuing his lead role as John Dutton on Yellowstone, Costner admitted that he’ll keep at it until it becomes stale.

Costner Has Other Interests

“I’ll go till it doesn’t feel like we’re interesting, and right now we have our foot on the gas and that feels OK to me,” he told ET. “I have interests that are outside of everything I do, including the movies, so I have other things that I want to do.”

Costner also said that if Yellowstone doesn’t end at some point, he’ll be the one to pull away from the series. But for now, it seems like he’s all in for Season 5.

Costner told ET that Yellowstone was fresh when he was first asked to do it, and that its novelty was part of the appeal. He elaborated that he hadn’t expected the show to become as popular as it did.

But the popularity itself isn’t enough to keep Costner forever, he says.

“I’ve always said, it’s not too hard to be popular, you can do a lot of things to get noticed or whatever, but if you’re trying to be relevant in your own life, you maybe have to be doing the things you feel like are important to you,” Costner admitted. “If the world gets in sync with your life, how great is that? But if you’re always chasing an idea that’s already working, and put a spin on it, there’s a business to that. And that’s done all the time and there’s nothing really wrong with it, but it’s not the way I can conduct myself.”

  1. Kevin, if you grew up as a conservative, why didn’t you stay that way. I started to watch Yellowstone because I like you as an actor, but there was so much cussing in it, I had to stop watching it.

    • Now that you mentioned there’s a lot of cussing in it I will never check out the series he couldn’t stay conservative cause he wants the bad boy image. Bad boys end up in hell no glory in that be born from above Kevin

    • Don’t leave this world without love the Lords love in you without being born again you will get on the eternal train of pain which is hell and you won’t get on board that train is going to run right over you and crush you and bury you demolish you into trillions of pieces plunge you into everlasting destruction turn or burn Jesus loves you he is the only way the truth and the life atheists really believe in God there’s no such thing as an atheist if a person really were an atheist like they say they are they would not hate Christians and they would not hate Jesus or God they hate the Lord and they hate Christians because they really do believe
