$45 Million Per Year

An American icon, Kevin Costner’s net worth is generated from his career as an actor and a producer. He’s not only hosted but won Academy Awards, Golden Globe Awards, and Screen Actors Guild Awards for his roles in some of the most popular movies over the last few decades. Currently, Kevin Costner is generating a salary from his latest role as John Dutton in the fan-favorite show, Yellowstone. Below are the different stages of Kevin Costner’s career since his debut in 1987. 

Early Life

Born to William Costner and Sharon Costner in Lynwood California, Kevin Costner grew up in a traditional blue-collar family. William Costner went from working as an electrician to having a traveling position with Southern California Edison which prompted the entire family to move. Throughout his early life, William Costner attended Baptist churches wherever they were staying and started to really enjoy being in the spotlight.

He did attend two different high schools, first Mt. Whitney High School and then Villa Park High School later on where he graduated. After high school, he attended California State University and started to dabble in his acting career. He did not major in acting, however, he pursued an arts degree in finance, graduating in 1978. 

The Beginning of Acting

After graduating from California State University Fullerton, Kevin Costner had a moment with the famous Richard Burton. During that interaction, Costner shifted his career focus and became motivated to pursue his true secret dream to pursue acting. 

In order to become better at his craft, he pursued acting classes regularly. Costner went the traditional Hollywood route of working various odd jobs and applied for auditions whenever he could. By the time the 1980s rolled around, Kevin Costner had a few roles under his belt and he began to generate traction in his acting career when he got his big break in 1987.

 Kevin Costner is a Household Name

After the release of The Untouchables where Kevin Costner starred and the film received raving reviews, he continued to become more popular and one of the highest-paid actors. In 1990, Dances With Wolves, a film where he directed as well as acted, allowed him to receive several awards. Today this movie is one of the most well-known and his projects continued. He is also well-known for Robin Hood Prince of Thieves. 

After Dances With Wolves, Kevin Costner was a big name at the box office and a long list of hits throughout the 1990s and some 2000s continued to feed his acting career. By the mid-2000s, Kevin Costner reestablished his seat at the A-List table with the release of The Guardian, which was another box office hit. Many of Kevin Costner’s big box office hits included him in some form of a modern western, historical drama, or taking on a position with law enforcement. The roles that Kevin Costner took seem to take a similar pattern and he was cast for many of the leading men roles that were popular during this time when law enforcement, military, and westerns were popular. More historically based movies include Kevin Costner in a lead role. Not long after this film, however, Kevin decided to take a different route.
