Bodyguard was one of the biggest movie strikes from 1
But unfortunately this illusion was broken this week – as the centuries-old concept of love itself – when Costner revealed Entertainment Weekly that it was not ] Houston transported him in the iconic shot, but her body double. (Probably Joyce Larkin, who is credited as Houston's stunt-double on the film, although Costner does not mention the woman's name.) Houston was reportedly gone home for the day when it was time to take the picture, dream of trust and security with her. So, instead, Larkin is the one with her face carefully stored in Costner's throat, indicating both vulnerability and a certain, ephemeral non-being-Whitney Houston ness that seems so central to the success of the image.
Interestingly, apparently Costner apparently had to sell the producers on the idea of using the picture as the movie's biggest promotional image on the not incomprehensible reason that Whitney Houston fans might want to see Whitney Houston's face on posters for the Whitney Houston movie. (There were apparently mock-ups made that re-inserted images of Houston's head on Larkin's body, which sounds like some real excorcist twisted nightmare shit, given the angles involved.)
Anyway However, Costner was quite economical; We are not sure what our hearts will think – and Bodyguard became the second best movie from 1992. Still raises the question: When Whitney sings "I will always love you," who is any of These pronouns even turn to? God, we are not even sure of "Always" at this time. Costner, what have you done?
