Remember Cheryl Tiegs? She was the American supermodel whose modeling success invented the concept of the supermodel. From her super successful modeling career came a line of signature brand sportswear. On the way, she graced the covers of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue as well as Time magazine. Obviously, Costner found her irresistible.
During the hot August nights of 1995, he made room for romantic rendezvous with the fashion beauty who seemed to find the ‘Field of Dreams’ star stunning. Including his wife, the only models he dated were super!
Romance and Rumors
Actress and model Angie Everhart ranked 98th most sexy woman in FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women of 2003 issue. She was a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model who made her Hollywood debut with Arnold Schwarzenegger in 'Last Action Hero'. The redhead knockout was engaged to both Sylvester Stallone and Joe Pesci. Rumor has it she also spent some time with Costner.
In 1995, they made the tabloids when the couple was spotted having a dinner date. It came on the heels of other rumors that Costner and his wife Cindy were attempting to reconcile. His romance with Everhart didn’t last long. Not much later, she married comedian and singer-songwriter, Ashley Hamilton.
He Also Dated 'Friends' Star, Courteney Cox
It was back in 1995 when Kevin Costner and Courteney Cox dated. Not much is known about the secret relationship out of his swinging singles era. They met up again in 2001. This time they shared the big screen in the action-adventure crime movie, '3000 Miles to Graceland'.
By then, she had definitely moved on. Cox and David Arquette, who starred in '3000 Miles to Graceland' as well, tied the knot in 1999.
Cal Ripken, Jr. vs. Kevin Costner
Cal Ripken was on a game-playing streak in 1997 when he had an alleged breakdown that prevented him from starting that night, as he had consecutively for a span of over five years. To help preserve his record, a Baltimore Orioles employee orchestrated a lighting malfunction, or it happened coincidentally. Regardless, the outcome was that the game was called.
In a serious check on guest manners, a personal friend of Costner’s, Cal Ripken, was rumored to have returned to his house after leaving for the day to play a game. He had forgotten something. Next, according to some versions, when Ripken arrived at his home, he caught Kevin Costner in his bed with his wife, Kelly. Costner is rumored to have gotten such a beating he was unable to do any publicity, just at the time he was wrapping up with 'The Postman'.
'Good Morning America' Host Joan Lunden Falls for Costner
At the peak of his fame, right in the middle of 'Waterworld', and at the height of his 1995 dating deluge, Costner found a new friend. Would this one be his true love? A romance with Joan Lunden, ABC’s popular 'Good Morning America' host who manned the desk until 1997, was sending off sparks. His new love tangle with the American journalist, author, and TV host was a hot story in media circles, and with 'Waterworld' promotion coinciding, a lightning storm of tabloid and media attention was so intense it severed the couple’s relationship.
Apparently, Costner romanced the TV journalist quite lavishly. He took her out on the open sea in a lovely yacht for a special date. As Lunden recalls, “He got this yacht and we sailed around New York Harbor and had dinner.” She said, “It was quite romantic and quite beautiful". The charming prince wouldn’t stay long, after being spooked by a hounding media, it seems. “I think Kevin and I would have dated longer had it not been for the unbelievable press focus on us,” Lunden said.
