Kevin Costner emerged from the 80s as Hollywood's most important and versatile superstar. His first job as a director was on the epic western "Dances With Wolves". The spectacular film was widely praised by critics. Working on a limited budget, Costner made "DWW" into an unforgettable cinematic experience, and at the Oscars in 1991, he took away the Best Picture and the Best Director Awards.

Costner has starred in many hit movies but despite achieving cumulative box-office taking throughout his career of $1.3 billion, much of the boyish, down-to-earth personality shines through the glitter. Amid the extraordinary world of Hollywood, Kevin Costner remains just an ordinary guy.
