Cindy Costner is an American stage actress who rose to prominence after marrying Kevin Costner, an actor and filmmaker.
Costner is also known for her performance in 'Dances with Wolves,' her first film with Kevin, the legend himself, followed by 'Litetweight' (1998).
She had stepped foot in the acting industry with stage performances and theater plays.
Married, Husband, Children
The actress and Kevin Costner met in the early 1970s at the same institution in southern California when they pursued Bachelor's degrees.
Cindy was pulled to acting in the same way that Kevin was. During the summer, she even played a princess in Disneyland.
Kevin once claimed that Cindy resembled Snow White, the Disney princess:
She was beautiful, she was sweet, she was smarter than me...She represented everything about women that I like.
In March 1975, the couple started dating, and after three years, Cindy tied the knot with the award-winning actor. At that time, she was just in her early 20's.
The couple is parents to three adult children, Annie Costner (born in 1984), Lily Costner (born in August 1986), and Joe Costner (born in January 1988).
After over a decade of relationship, Costner's infidelity rumors started to swirl around the internet when working in the 1990 movie 'Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.'
Four years later, the ex-couple announced that they were splitting up. In a statement, Kevin and Cindy said:
After 16 years together, we are ending our marriage...We have amicably resolved all issues regarding our children and financial affairs and a full marital settlement has been reached.
According to E! News, Costner's divorce was unusually costly since Cindy is reported to have gotten about $80 million.
Cindy and Kevin made their children their top focus after their divorce, as per a close friend of the couple. John McInnes, a long-time friend of theirs, revealed:
I think their relationship as individuals will be OK...They have a common love, their kids, who are the most important thing to both of them. I don't think they'll have one of those cutthroat relationships. It's just sad because they were the perfect couple.
Following the divorce, her ex-husband had a short-lived relationship with Bridget Rooney, an actress. The ex-couple even shared a son named Liam Timothy (Born in 1996).
After that, he dated Birgit Cunningham, a political activist, and Elle Macpherson, a supermodel. And on September 25, 2004, he re-married model and handbag designer Christine Baumgartner in Aspen, Colorado. The couple shared three children: Cayden (born in 2007), Hayes (born in 2009), and Grace (born in 2010).
Movies & Net Worth
As mentioned earlier, Cindy became part of the industry with her stage performances and stage plays. In addition, she is an occasional actress who has appeared in the 1990 film 'Dance with Wolves' and 1998 film 'LiteWeight.'
On the other side, her ex-husband is an award-winning actor who has worked on projects like 'Hatfields & McCoys,' 'Molly's Game,' and 'Dances with Wolves.'
Talking about Cindy's net worth, she must be having it in millions as she had received $80 million as a divorce settlement. And for her ex-husband, he enjoys a colossal net worth of $250 million.
