‘I work as a provider’: Kevin Costner spoke with People about his life as a father of seven as he promoted his new Fox Nation docuseries Yellowstone One-Fifty
‘I work as a provider. I’m a father and I’m a husband, but the world doesn’t revolve around me,’ he told the site. ‘When I’m not making a movie, I’m living and on the freeway with my wife, getting the kids to their stuff or I’m waiting for them to come out of a party. I’m just twiddling my thumbs. People have a wrong idea about how my life works.’
Costner also insisted he is just ‘trying to figure’ out parenting, like any other mom and dad.
‘You’ve got to get down on the ground and play with them,’ he told told the publication. ‘And you teach them to be independent—and the sad part about that is they become that. I’m like any other parent: I’m trying to figure it out.’

Costner’s son Hayes will also be appearing in his upcoming Western epic series Horizon.
The actor revealed he cast his son in part to continue bonding with him.
‘I kind of did it on purpose, so he could be hanging out with me. And the same thing for Cayden, same thing for Grace. “This is really neat. You should come be with me,'” he said.
On top of parenting, Costner has been busy with his career in showbiz with two projects making headlines.
