Kevin Costner has revealed that he was in talks with Princess Diana about a sequel to The Bodyguard before her death.

Costner said he was keen for the late Princess of Wales to take on the romantic lead in the follow-up film.

He told Anderson Cooper on his talk show: 'Diana and I had been talking about doing Bodyguard 2. I told her I would take care of her just the same way that I took care of Whitney.

'She let me know that her life might be changing at some point, so she was having her own internal struggles.

'When she died, she was obviously all over the news. I knew that that was an interesting story that I had, but I never brought that up and a very good reporter, about a year later, somehow heard something and finally came to me and I said, "Yeah, that was true."

'Not that she was going to do it: That we were talking about doing it.'

Costner, who previously spoke about Diana's intentions to do the film back in 2001, added: 'She wanted me to write it for her. I said, "I'll tailor it for you if you're interested." She goes, "I am interested."'

Costner, who was appearing on the daytime show to promote his new miniseries Hatfields & McCoys, also spoke about the tragic passing of his former co-star Whitney Houston, revealing he attempted to help her by writing the singer letters.

He said: 'There were some people that really loved Whitney and a couple times during the last seven/eight years they asked me would I write her a letter.

'When someone said, "Would you write someone a letter who you know is having trouble?" I did. There were two occasions. I elected to let Whitney have her life after The Bodyguard and she would always be close to me.

'She would always be someone I appreciated. I saw pretty much what everyone else saw. But when someone asked me to write a letter I did. I don't know if those letters were ever read.'
