Yellowstone Actor Kevin Costner Takes A Stand And Doesn’t Care If He Loses Fans

Kevin Costner does what he wants and doesn’t care if he loses fans over it.

The actor stars in the hit show Yellowstone which has just kicked off Season 5 with his character, John Dutton, becoming Montana’s governor.

That on-screen win led to an off-screen discussion on politics and whether he would ever run for office. Costner has voted and endorsed both Democratic and Republican candidates in recent years.

Costner, who is 67, told USA Today, “No, I don’t think there’s any reason for me to run. Though I wish the people that did run had a bigger vision and more of a morality about how they see the country evolving. I’m disappointed.”

Of course, in today’s culture, Costner received criticism for his stance. However, Costner said he wouldn’t change a thing.

He stated, “I didn’t really care how the cookie crumbles — that people that liked me now don’t like me. That’s OK.”

Speaking to Variety in 2020, Costner, who has voted both Republican and Democrat, stated, “It’s pretty clear every four years we get a chance to kind of look at where we are as a country and decide if we’re going the right way and if we’re not, we have that opportunity to make a shift.”

For some time, critics ignored his show, and Yellowstone Creator said that it was too anti-woke to win awards.

“They refer to it as ‘the conservative show’ or ‘the Republican show’ or ‘the red-state Game of Thrones,’” Taylor Sheridan said. “And I just sit back laughing. I’m like, ‘Really?’”

“The show’s talking about the displacement of Native Americans and the way Native American women were treated and about corporate greed and the gentrification of the West, and land-grabbing. That’s a red-state show?”

Regardless the show was snubbed by the Emmys in 2022.

HBO’s “Succession” beat Costner’s “Yellowstone” even though they only got a fraction of the views.
