Sep 29, 2006, 14:23 GMT
Ashton Kutcher was terrified of embarrassing himself in front of his screen idol, Kevin Costner.
The actor stars alongside the Oscar winning actor in the upcoming movie, ‘The Guardian’.
Ashton gushed to USA Today: “It’s like growing up and watching Kevin's films, and they don't disappoint. I'm from Iowa, so I was born and raised on ‘If you build it, they will come’ - the famous line from his baseball film ‘Field of Dreams’.”
The 28-year-old added: “When you see films like ‘JFK’ or ‘The Bodyguard’ you realize there aren't very many guys that don't disappoint and Kevin is one of them.”
However, Kevin insists Ashton has nothing to prove.
He explained: “Ash is smack-dab in that point in his career where everybody is like, ‘Prove it to me’.
“Everybody wants to limit him and everybody keeps being wrong about him. And that's because they're playing catch-up. He's already on to his next thing.”
Kevin joked: “I guess I'm flattening out — I'm at the top of my game.”
