ET fondly remembers Whitney Houston in archival footage of the music icon talking about her breakthrough role in 1992's The Bodyguard.
Whitney told ET at the time, "Nothing can prepare you for a movie," adding that she offered to take acting lessons to prepare for the role, but that producers told her not to.
"Can I do this movie? Can I really pull it off?" she said she wondered.
Kevin Coster wanted her for the movie so badly, that he told ET, "We postponed the movie for a year to wait for Whitney."
