Yellowstone's Wes Bentley Confirms What We Suspected About Kevin Costner

Although the Dutton family on the hit television show "Yellowstone" appears to live the American dream — with their large homestead property and general freedom to run things as they see fit — their life is anything but. The Duttons, as led by the patriarch John Dutton (Kevin Costner), are exceptionally close and utterly loyal, but John is a no-nonsense, my-way-or-the-highway kind of figure, and what he says is essentially law on the fictional ranch. He has rather unique interactions with each of his children, but it's Jamie (Wes Bentley) who suffers the brunt of his antagonism.

Costner is known for his work in dramas such as "The Postman," "Dances with Wolves," and "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves," so his character on "Yellowstone" definitely fits in the actor's wheelhouse of a dedicated and reluctant protagonist who just wants a peaceful life. But what is the relationship like between the two actors in real life? Last November, Bentley had a chance to discuss his co-star, and his answer to one question in particular is rather humorous.

Bentley says Costner has a rather specific smell

In an interview with The Knockturnal, Wes Bentley was asked about what goes on between the actors when the cameras aren't rolling on a series that has so many different characters and storylines. Bentley explained that, although his character is growing increasingly isolated, there's no parallel to his own relationship with other members of the cast outside of the show: "We're all close ... and most of the time, we hang out together."

The interview then took a rather comedic turn, and Bentley was asked what Kevin Costner smells like, to which he jokingly fired back, "He smells like baseball," highlighting that the relationship between the two actors in particular must be pretty amiable in real life. Bentley's answer is a clever nod to one of Costner's earlier films, "Field of Dreams," in which Costner plays a farmer who turns his cornfield into a baseball field.
