Kevin Costner's devoted parents travel America just to watch their son direct his blockbusters.

The movie star's mum and dad can always be spotted on a hill or in the distance of his epic films - where they proudly watch their son's efforts.

He explains, "They've always been in the stands for me. I went to go and direct Dances With Wolves and I got 200 people waiting for me and everything and there's my mom and dad.

"They had driven a trailer to South Dakota and they sat up on a hill and they're watching and waving at me from 100 yards away.

"I had to look at everybody and, being the big important director, I said, 'That's my parents. They're going to watch me direct.'"
