    had forgotten just how hot he was in Bodyguard… esp the scene where (unprovoked) he wordlessly beats the shiiite out of this guy, then says something like ‘I never want to talk about this again.’

    I felt his words were from his heart. He was really struggling with is emotions. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if he wanted more of a relationship with her. How I wish we could go back in time and have things be so different,,..

    I just watched yesterday twice. So touching so beautiful so sweet. Just wish the time keeps still to that time in the movies.

    Houston”s song is so so so beautiful beyond the words.

    Why are there always bad people around good people? Jealous? Cheating? Betrayl? Evil world! Evil money!

    Miss you and MJ so so much! RIP.

    Just to let everyone….that his speech was so awesome and moving. I agree some of the comment if we could just bring back times.

    He is so poised I admire him more. Honestly, I cried (I just got off work at 7am and stayed up to watched Whitney)…..

    I so agree when one of the Pastor said (Cissy bring the nations back together/to church – something like that).

    I cried more when they lifted her casket…this is the most beautiful dedication/funeral I’ve seen for 5 decades. Thank you Whitney and family.

    I was pleasantly surprised when I saw he came to the funeral, but then I got blown away by his wonderful speech. Really heartfelt and honest, you could feel how much he cared. I never knew they were this close or that he was fond of her so much. Jeesh, now I’ll have to watch The Bodyguard again, as this was truly romantic but even more a real testament to friendship. I hold Costner in higher regards now.

    michel Says:

    thought cosner was a bit too egotistical
    shared stories that made him look good, what about sharing a story how whitney made him a better person or how she helped him
    didnt need to hear all the stories how he was such a mischievious boy in church and again with the comment how the famous people could only understand how you could have doubts on a interview
