“When I die, I hope that on my headstone… it would just say ‘And he made movies, too.’

“I don’t define myself by just the movies. I have had a wonderful life. I’m not without my own bruises, you know. But it’s been good. And I’d like to not let my own celebrity or how people see me define who I am as a person…

“I thought if I could bring what I have, which is a dreaming mentality and the money that I have been able to amass, I would throw it at this problem and I could make a difference.

“And I know, you know, I’m the actor with the magic machine. I know that that’s how it was going to read, so I was prepared to have my neck cut off and watch my head roll into the street by intellectuals, by cynics. But I had to reengage, because, you know… it was a fight worth fighting and I didn’t want this machine to be silent. And so I had to speak for it.”

Kevin Costner speaking on Larry King Live last night about his Ocean Therapy Solutions’ machines and his role in the BP Gulf oil spill cleanup.
