If you build it, he will come.

Field of Dreams Star Gaby Hoffmann, 42, who was still a child actress when the modern sports classic hit theaters in 1989, had no kind words to say about her film father, 69-year-old Kevin Costner.

In an interview with Business Insider published on Thursday, Hoffmann, also known for Transparentsaid there was a lot of “fatherly energy” on set, but also noted, “I didn’t feel any fatherly energy from Kevin Costner. We’ll leave it at that.”

The film is based on the 1982 novel “Shoeless Joe” by WP Kinsella. The late Ray Liotta played Shoeless Joe Jackson. Costner played farmer Ray Kinsella, who builds a baseball field that attracts baseball-playing ghosts. Hoffmann played Ray’s daughter. She was 6 years old at the time.

Unlike Costner, Hoffmann had high praise for Liotta, who died in 2022 at the age of 67 from pulmonary edema and acute heart failure.

“I just absolutely loved Ray. I was convinced he was in love with me, which of course he wasn’t, but he was just such a sweetheart,” she said. “I didn’t have a father as a child and there were just so many wonderful men on set.”

She continued: “With Ray Liotta and basically all the baseball players, I would sit around and play cards and catch with them,” Hoffman continued. “I joked that I had a huge crush on him, but I think I was really attracted to a kind of fatherly, protective energy that he had in abundance. And what a wonderful actor he was.”

Although Hoffmann did not attribute any “fatherly energy” to Costner, he has seven children.

He has three children with his ex-wife Cindy Silva – Annie, 40, Lily, 37, and Joe, 36. He has a son, Liam, 26, with Bridget Rooney.

He has three younger children – Cayden, 17, Hayes, 15, and Grace, 13 – with his ex-wife Christine Baumgartner, whom he divorced in February after a messy separation.

Costner is also “fatherly” on screen – in his most recent role as patriarch John Dutton in the successful ranch drama YellowstoneJohn is the father of adult children Kayce (Luke Grimes), Jamie (Wes Bentley) and Beth (Kelly Reilly) as well as his son-in-law and Beth’s husband Rip Wheeler (Cole Hauser).

Costner, whose epic western film horizon was panned by critics, has started to talk about the drama behind the scenes Yellowstone.

The “Waterworld” star told GQ about the show’s filming schedule: “We very rarely started when we said we would, and we never stopped when we said we would.”

“And I was OK with it. Really. I was OK with it, but it wasn’t a trend I could continue.”

He felt he was missing out on other work opportunities and said he could not schedule horizonin which he plays the leading role, which he also directed and co-wrote.

The Dances with wolves Star and director said he was still ready to Yellowstone to find solutions, but “the scripts never came. They still haven’t shot it. As far as I know. The scripts never came. And then at some point they told me that we didn’t have an ending or something.”
