Morning Man Classic: Warren Beatty!

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3467/3275205838_9101bd60f1.jpgWarren Beatty turns 77 today!

He has not appeared in a film since Town & Country in 2001. He seems content to dote on his four kids with wife Annette Bening and collect various life achievement awards.

Before he settled down with Miss Bening, his Bugsy and Love Affair co-star, in the early 90s, Beatty scored a series of professional triumphs that included winning the Academy Award for directing Reds and starring in (and often writing, producing and directing) such films as Bonnie and Clyde, McCabe and Mrs. Miller, Shampoo, Heaven Can Wait, Bugsy, Bulworth and Dick Tracy. His first big film role came way back in 1961 when he starred opposite Natalie Wood in Splendor in the Grass.

While his film resume is impressive, his love life even more so. He was involved with Miss Wood for a time and also engaged to Joan Collins, had an affair with a married Leslie Caron, enjoyed a long relationship with Julie Christie, and was later seriously involved with Reds co-star Diane Keaton. He also dated Madonna shortly before falling in love with Bening who would become his first only wife.

If he seems comfortable around strong and successful women, it could be because his sister is the equally famous Shirley MacLaine.

Imagine that dinner table while growing up!

One Remark

  1. Warren Beatty sure was gorgeous, amazingly talented, and obviously seductive. There are very few that attain the notoriety that he has earned for his reputation off screen. I would love to see you feature more gorgeous men from the past. You’ve probably featured many of the obvious stars like Robert Wagner, and Tab Hunter, but there must have been many that are forgotten by many of todays youngsters that think Justin Bieber invented sex appeal.
