Kevin Costner Is the Best Person to Speak at Whitney Houston's Funeral

kevin costnerWhile fans spent last weekend trying to come to terms with the shock of Whitney Houston's sudden death, this weekend they will continue to mourn her loss as her funeral takes place and she's laid to rest in her home state of New Jersey.

While the funeral will be an invitation-only event and won't be open to the public, there will be an online livestream for people who want to witness Whitney's official goodbye.

One of the most highly emotional moments of the funeral will likely be when Kevin Costner gets up to speak about the loss of Whitney. Doesn't he seem like such an appropriate person to pay tribute to her amazing talent? His words will no doubt be incredibly moving and heartfelt.


I think it's safe to say that when most people think of Whitney Houston, The Bodyguard is one of the first things that pops into their heads. I mean -- who can forget the chemistry between these two? They were totally irresistible together, almost to the point where it was tough to believe that they weren't an item in real life. Movies that tug at your heartstrings like The Bodyguard aren't ones that are easy to forget.

We also can't help but wonder how Kevin felt when he heard the news that Whitney had passed. It must be so difficult to work that closely with someone on such an iconic film without feeling like you lost a part of yourself that you'll never be able to get back. Costner has no doubt felt an extreme amount of grief over Whitney's death, so it speaks volumes to his character that he's willing to speak at her funeral.

It's so tough to watch the video clip of the final scene from The Bodyguard without getting a little bit teary-eyed. Watching Kevin say goodbye to Whitney in the film is almost kind of haunting -- especially considering that he'll give her one last farewell for real on Saturday.
