    Kevin Costner has claimed that he had once been in discussions with Princess Diana about co-starring in a sequel to ‘The Bodyguard. Years later, William revealed a touching detail about those talks when he met the actor.

    I ultimately had a very sweet conversation about 15 years later with Prince William,” Costner recalled during the interview. “He walked up, and we sat down, and shook hands, and the first line out of his mouth was, he says, ‘You know, my mom kinda fancied you,'” he said, quoting Prince William.

    He dated the interaction to one of his visits to England. “I happened to be over in England, and got this message that, ‘The Prince would love to talk to you,'” he explained. “I’ve never talked about this, but I can because of how much I very much respect him. We met in this room, where the chairs were still stacked on chairs. It was just us. I’m sure there was somebody [outside], but just him and I met. There was nobody else,” Costner added.

    Though he revealed this much, Kevin Costner chose not to divulge the specifics of their conversation. He, however, emphasized the positive impression William left on him. “We talked about a half hour, I’ll never say what we talked about, but it was a very sweet thing,” he said.

    Further opening up about the proposed ‘Bodyguard sequel, Costner recalled Princess Diana’s genuine curiosity. “I just remember her being incredibly sweet on the phone when she asked the questions,” he said. “She goes, ‘Are we going to have like a kissing scene?’ But she said it in a very respectful — she was a little nervous because I think her life was very governed.”

    Costner also credited Diana’s former sister-in-law Sarah for facilitating the project, asserting that she was “very cool. “When she could’ve been going, ‘Whoa, I’m a princess too, what about me?,’ she didn’t. She didn’t do that at all. She [said], ‘No, I’m gonna make this happen.’ And she did. I always respected her, that she never inserted herself,” Kostner said.

    The actor, known for his timeless charm, is currently promoting his upcoming film ‘Horizon‘, which stars his 15-year-old son Hayes in a pivotal role.
