Whitney Houston’s The Bodyguard Turns 20! Here Are 6 Celebs Who Lived The Movie In Real Life

It’s hard to believe that Whitney Houston made her acting debut 20 years ago today in the classic film The Bodyguard! The multi-platinum diva showed off her killer acting chops along side Kevin Costner, and the heat between the pair made the flick the second highest grossing movie of 1992. Plus, the soundtrack also went on to become the greatest selling soundtrack album of all time (in your face, Grease)!

And we also imagine it’s Heidi Klum’s favorite movie. In case you haven’t heard, the 39 year old modeling legend is currently romantically involved with her bodyguard, Martin Kristen. But she’s by no means the only celebrity who took The Bodyguard as a how-to-guide for relationship success. ¬†We’re guessing that stars like Britney Spears and Scarlett Johansson were also big fans. Head on down to the gallery below to see more actresses who’ve (allegedly) had a fling with their hired help. Enjoy!
