It has been a good week for Kevin Costner. Today the multitalented actor is turning 58, and last Sunday at the Golden Globes, he took home a best actor award for his role in the miniseries “Hatfields and McCoys.”
Costner’s acceptance speech at the event struck a particularly reflective tone, as he not only went through the usual round of “thank you’s,” but also told the audience:
"I just couldn’t help thinking [that] the first time I came into this room, it was a long time ago, and I was an unknown actor … I walked on [the red carpet], and the bulbs were going and they were flashing and photographers were yelling at the actors to look at them. No one said anything to me, I was just walking and hoping to have some kind of career … And it’s been a great ride."
We so enjoyed Costner’s reflections on his 32-year-long career, that for his birthday, we are doing the same. In the slideshow below, we've compiled a list of the dashing actor’s top nine roles.
