In the entertainment industry, many lay claim to fame through several means ranging from marriage to having famous parents. On her part, Annie enjoyed fame as Kevin Costner’s daughter and also as an actress before switching to movie production, directing, business, and the real estate market. Through her entertainment career, she co-founded Sound Off Fims. She is the founder of Annie Cox Homes, an Ojai-based real estate firm.
Away from this, Kevin Costner’s oldest child is married to Danny Cox whom she shares two children with.
Early Life and Age of Annie Costner
She was born Anne Clayton Costner on April 15, 1984, to Kevin Costner and Cindy, his first wife during their sixteen-year marriage. Her parents met in college before they later got married in 1978. Her parent’s marriage was one of the celebrated celebrity marriages, however, they parted ways in 1994 due to irreconcilable differences.
Annie is the oldest among her father’s seven children born with different women. Of this, she shares the same mother as Lily and Joe, while Liam was born during her father’s relationship with Bridget Rooney. Her three youngest half-siblings, Cayden, Hayes, and Grace are products of her father’s second marriage.
She Started Acting at a Young Age
Like her famous father, Annie followed an acting career which she started at a young age. Reportedly, she made her debut in 1990 when she played the role of Christine in Dances with Wolves. Notably, her father starred as well as directed the golden globe award-winning movie. Needless to say, this role introduced Annie’s acting on screen.
The celebrity child made her next appearance five years later in the 1995 movie Waterwall and later Babysitters Club within the same year. While there was an expectation that she will have an acclaimed acting career like her father, we noticed that this is not the case. Over the years, her roles have been fewer. In fact, IMDB gives her last movie to be the 2010 animation, Lazy Super Heroes. Despite not meeting the expectation of many in her career, her younger sister, Lily Costner is quite notable on the screen.
Kevin Costner’s Daughter is also a Producer and Director
Despite her few screen appearances on screen, Costner is still involved in the entertainment industry. In 2014, she and Adrienne Hall founded Sound Off Films, a production company that deals with telling documentary and non-fiction stories. She made her directorial and production debut in the 2016 production of The Discarded: A Tale of Two Rios.
She is credited with other production works;
- El Cartel Cubano(2020)
- ESPN 30 for 30: Bump, Spike(2017)
Annie Costner Owns a Real Estate Firm
Looking at her various endeavors in the entertainment industry, it is quite surprising that she has versatile skills that run into real estate. Annie got her real estate license in 2021. According to her Instagram bio, she is the owner of an Ojai real estate firm named Annie Cox Homes.
Her Linked profile links her to other organizations like the Santa Barbara-based Sothebys International Realty as well as Zabilla Group.
She is Married to Danny Cox Whom she Has two Children With
The actress has been married to a medical doctor named Daniel Arturo Cox but is popularly referred to as Dr. Danny Cox. While the movie maker and her better half have not revealed details about their dating timeline, we gathered that their July 2016 wedding was held at her father’s private estate in Carpinteria, California. Furthermore, their star-studded wedding was attended by their family and friends.
Annie is a mother of two adorable children, Vincent Leo and Vida Valle, and despite her commitment to her career, she has somehow managed to put everything into perspective.
