Cautious Kevin Costner has been unusually open about his private life — mainly in a bid to shore up interest in his teetering vanity project Horizon — according to sources who squeal that deep down he’s “in a world of pain,” has learned.

Sources snitch the 69-year-old A-lister had everything riding on his Western saga, which earned him an 11-minute standing ovation from peers at the Cannes Film Festival premiere in May, but left a lot of critics less than thrilled.

Kevin Costner and Christine Baumgartner finalized their divorce in Feb.

While Costner is seemingly keeping it together as he made the rounds to plug his sprawling epic, friends fear he's going through more than he can handle behind the scenes.

“And, of course, all the personal knocks he’s getting are adding to his stress!” confided the insider.

The Yellowstone TV cowboy is moving on after wife Christine Baumgartner filed for divorce in May 2023. The former couple share three children — Cayden, 17, Hayes, 15, and Grace, 14 — and a court battle over child support ensued, with the actor finally ordered to pay the onetime handbag designer $63,209 a month.

As previously reported, the Yellowstone cast has also seemingly turned their backs on the embattled actor-producer as he fights creator Taylor Sheridan and Paramount over his exit from the show.

“They play nice and exchange pleasantries, but he’s not getting the support he would have expected,” an insider tattled. Now the cast members are caught in the middle of Costner’s feud with Sheridan, and they "don't want to get in trouble, so they iced him out," the source revealed.

“They’re not picking sides, and that made Kevin bitter," the tipster added.
