Hollywood’s year of A-list breakups is certainly reshuffling the power couples’ list, but there might be a pairing that nobody saw coming. Kevin Costner is reportedly wooing another suddenly single actress, who has a very impressive résumé just like the 68-year-old actor.
Costner had been hoping to work with Reese Witherspoon on an upcoming project, but a source at New Idea is claiming that a romance is heating up between them. “Kevin’s had his eye on Reese ever since she won her Oscar, but he didn’t count on finding her absolutely charming as hell,” the insider shared. “They’ve been calling and texting on the pretense of finding the perfect script, but it’s becoming almost a daily occurrence.” Both stars are known for producing and starring in their own films, so they have a mutual appreciation for the hard work it takes behind the scenes to get a movie made. And it certainly doesn’t hurt if sparks are flying between them!
“No one is surprised that Kevin and Reese have hit it off,” they noted. “They’re extremely compatible.” There are whispers of secret meet-ups when they are both in California, and there might be a future vacation to Costner’s ranch in Aspen, Colorado. But after a tumultuous divorce from Christine Baumgartner over the summer, the Yellowstone actor “wants more Oscars for this, not tabloid headlines.”
“He and Reese are always careful to not be seen together but as soon as his Horizon commitments are done, they may be more relaxed about being seen together in public. It’s still very early days,” the source added. The 47-year-old actress is probably stepping gingerly into this dating situation as well since she divorced her second husband Jim Toth earlier this year. Witherspoon has been open about the split being a “vulnerable time” for her.
Hollywood better get ready because another A-list couple could be making their red-carpet debut next year… only if Costner and Witherspoon decide that what they have is “the real deal.”
