If you’re willing to tell somebody that you love them, are you also willing to say you’re sorry? You need to, even when you think you’re in the right.”
His First Wife

“She was beautiful, she was sweet, she was smarter than me,” Kevin Costner said of his then-wife to People in 1989. “She represented everything about women that I like.”
Silva later worked on the set on his movie Dances With Wolves. According to Country Living, they tried to make their relationship work but rumors of Costner’s infidelity surfaced shortly after they finished filming.
The couple divorced in 1994. Forbes estimated that Silva walked away with $80 million.
“After 16 years together, we are ending our marriage,” they said in a joint statement announcing their divorce. “We have amicably resolved all issues regarding our children and financial affairs and a full marital settlement has been reached.”
