Kevin Costner put on a brave face during his divorce from Christine Baugmgartner last year.

The veteran actor admitted in his GQ Summer 2024 cover story that despite feeling utterly “broken” from the end of his two-decade long marriage, he forced himself to power through for the sake of his children and his work.

Particularly, he completely threw himself into his upcoming production, Horizon: An American Saga.

He reflected, “I’m not going to lose myself. And what I’m going to do is – because we are now after the white whale, okay? So I can’t let go of this rope no matter how much my heart’s on the ground, no matter how broken I may be on a daily basis, I can’t let go of this rope because if I do, this thing called Horizon will stop.”

Costner clarified that it wasn’t that the film was more important than his other commitments, but he had to foremost honour the “level of responsibility to those guys that invested with me.”

He continued, “And so it doesn’t matter how much water’s hitting me in the face, I can’t let go of the rope that is this thing.”

And his perseverance paid off as Horizon received a standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival over the weekend.
