Kevin Costner, 69, Looks Sharp In Black Suit And Debuts Mustache As He Attends Chopard Trophy Dinner At Cannes… Following Death Of Yellowstone Co-Star Dabney Coleman


As he prepares to debut his new great American western, Kevin Costner is enjoying a night out in France.

The Academy Award winner, 69, cut a sharp look in a classic black suit as he stepped out for Friday’s Chopard Trophy dinner at the 77th Cannes Film Festival ahead of the Horizon: An American Saga premiere.

The actor showed off his new look – a mustache – for the festival.

He layered the suit over a white dress shirt, which he wore with no tie, only a white pocket square.

Costner accessorized the ensemble with a black watch and a pair of black wayfarer sunglasses with red lenses.

The Yellowstone alum posed on the red carpet with Chopard president Caroline Scheufele, who turned heads in a strapless red ensemble with giant pink flowers across the chest.

His red carpet outing came a day after Costner’s Yellowstone onscreen father Dabney Coleman died at 92.

Coleman appeared in the season 2 finale as John Dutton Sr. in the final moments of his life.

The show’s creator Taylor Sheridan told Deadline of the casting: ‘I’d written [the Yellowstone episode] but I believe I was prepping a movie in New Mexico and I think [Dabney Coleman] reached out and said he would be really interested in doing something.

‘I had worked with Dabney many, many years ago, almost 20 years ago, as one of the young pups,’ he added.

‘He’s a Texas guy and was such a gifted, giving actor and I was really struck by how good he was, and how kind he was, to this kid who was guest starring on his deal.’


After a reported behind-the-scenes feud with Sheridan, 53, led Costner to exit the series last year, the actor opened up about the decision this week.

‘There was no script,’ Costner told Deadline. ‘And then things imploded. You’ve been reading one version [of the show’s drama] for a year and a half.’

He added: ‘I have taken a beating from those f****** guys and I know a lot of times where it’s coming from. I just elected not to get into that.

‘But if you know me well enough, I made Yellowstone the first priority, and to insinuate anything else would be wrong,’ said Costner.

Ahead of Horizon’s Cannes premiere on Sunday, the two-part saga already been acquired by Metropolitan FilmExport, according to Variety.

Costner reportedly put up $50 million of his own money to fund the movies, which he co-wrote, directed and starred in with Sienna Miller, Luke Wilson, Sam Worthington, Jena Malone and more.

The movie series follows a family that discovers the lure of the Old West as the Civil War divides the country.

Horizon: An American Saga makes its world premiere Sunday at the 77th Cannes Film Festival.
