Knock On Wood

‘FROM one wooden actor to another and the news that Kevin Costner is also about to follow the well-trodden path to the altar.

Kevin was voted as having the whitest shirt at Cannes this year

In his case, it is only for the second time of asking, which for a 48-year-old in Hollywood is almost unique.

The woman who will star opposite Kevin for what he hopes is the rest of his life is 29-year-old model and handbag designer Christine Baumgartner.

And friends tell the National Enquirer that they are sure this one will work out.

“She was always sitting by the river, soaking up the sun,” recalls her guidance counsellor at El Modena High School. “And she’s a whiz at golf and skiing.”

She was also voted as having the whitest teeth of all her classmates – a recipe indeed for a long and happy life together.

For her part, Christine will be hoping that her husband’s second attempt at marriage is more successful than some of his recent films.

Up to now, Costner’s best on-screen performance was in The Big Chill, in which he was cast as a corpse – before being cut from the film entirely.’
