The Bodyguard has one of the most iconic movie posters of all time, showing Kevin Costner carrying Whitney Houston in the rain after a riot breaks out at a nightclub - well that is what it seems.

As revealed by Costner, it turns out that Whitney wasn't the woman he was carrying out.

“That wasn’t even Whitney actually,” Costner tells EW. “She had gone home and that was her double, and her head was buried into my shoulder, which was appropriate anyway. She was frightened.”

The shot for the poster didn't take take place on the day the memorable scene was filmed, but Costner knew it would make for a perfect poster.

The Bodyguard was a huge hit, taking in $400million worldwide, and selling countless copies of its soundtrack.

Costner and Whitney remained close friends for years, and he even spoke at her funeral in 2012.
