    Not too many, but they're cute together. I think she was 6 years older than he is and her husband named Warren as one of the reasons for their divorce (forgetting that they were already separated when the Beatty/Caron affair began). Oh well. The first one was posted earlier in this thread.

    LunaShar> you're welcome.

    Chatteaux> nope, unfortunately none of his kids have inherited his (former) angelic beauty. His only son is obviously the spitting image of plain Annette, except the wavy hair comes from dad. The two youngest girls I'm undecided on so far. I don't really recognize much of either parent in them. Kathlyn, the oldest, according to some reports, has the biggest resemblance to her dad, although I do not see it in photos. You can already tell she's inherited her parents' height, because she's not that much smaller than Annette and she still only turned 14 in January!
    The Beatty family in December of 2004>

    Kathlyn at 12>


    I loved Annette in "American Beauty" and found her a bit too Jessica Rabbit in "Bugsy" although she did have her moments in it. You can tell love is blind, because after Joan Collins, Julie Christie, Natalie Wood and tons of other beauties, Beatty swore she was the most beautiful woman he's ever been with back when they were just married, and even today is way too complimentary about her looks (he may have cataracts ). She DOES still have a great body, though, after 4 kids!

    Additional Comment:

    I just saw the pic with his son. Does he have another son that he can pass those elegant features onto? I did think Annette looked terrific in Bugsy. She always looks well in vintage/period films.
    I forgot to ask, Chatteaux, did you buy Ishtar yet?

    Yeah, now that you mention it, there's a bit of young Shirley in there, too.

    LOL, his lips and his insanely long eyelashes, sigh. I just also adore his voice and stammer, can't help it, it's a freaky thing with me

    He and Caron had lunch with French director Francois Truffaut one day,
    who'd acquired a rough screenplay/story on Bonnie & Clyde.
    They talked about it, and Truffaut admitted thinking that he as a French man
    might not be the right person to make a movie or documentary out of it.
    Warren ended up with the transcript, was immediately interested in its
    possibilities and sought out two relative newcomers to screenplay writing and the rest is history.
    His instincts sure paid off!
    See this article>
    http://www.cinetropic.com/bonnieandclyde/times97.html

    Funny facts:

    Did you know that the real Bonnie Parker was a 4'10" brunette and the real Clyde Barrow 5'7", opposed to the blonde 5'7" Faye Dunaway and above average 6'2" Warren Beatty?!!!

    Bonnies true poem, The story of Bonnie & Clyde can be found here, with some facts>
    http://www.historybuff.com/library/refbonnie.html

    The TRUE story about why Clydes alleged homosexuality was not played upon in the movie
    was NOT because Beatty didnt want to play a homosexual, NOT because any of the
    screenwriters had a problem working the fact into a script, but because the studio censors
    a) did not want to make the entire movie AT ALL, saw it as a predictable flop
    because as they assumed the gangster genre is over
    b) hated both the amount of violence and the alleged homosexuality as strong themes
    in the script, but if they had to choose, they preferred the violence over the theme of homosexuality.
    After all, this was 1966/1967 and most studio bosses had been in power since the thirties and forties!
    Making Clyde impotent was difficult enough for them to accept!

    Warren first wanted to make the movie with his then lover Leslie Caron, but obviously her
    strong French accent was a big minus.
    He also approached his ex-lover Natalie Wood, said it would be a total departure from what
    people were used to seeing of her, but she was depressed and didnt want to work at all,
    not even when he offered she could take her therapist with her on the set.

    The studio gave Warren an unprecedented 40% share in the movies gross intake.
    Not because they believed in him, but because they were certain the movie would bomb.
    Warrens still raking them in nicely from this almost 40 year old movie!

    Warren was a one man promotion team. He singlehandedly assured a second release of the
    movie, working tirelessly without sleep for weeks, after the first release was hardly promoted
    by the studio.
    Only the second time around did the movie become a success.

    And now for some grabs, hehe.













    Love these pix. He and Faye both looked amazing. One of my favorite movies.

    Well, since I can't edit it anymore, here's another cute pic of them together.

    I just had to post your pic again
    Hehe, that's the original "studmuffin" pic, according to SVZ

    As for his "type" of woman, hmm, I think if she had a pulse, he was interested Had he been young in the eighties and nineties, he might have been considered a sex addict. But then, he always downplays his image as Hollywood Casanova.
    Still, the media (he's always been the first to tell people not to believe everything they read, he didn't give - magazine - interviews for close to 13 years!) have accumulated lists like this one>

    Diane Keaton, Leslie Caron, Isabelle Adjani, Catherine Deneuve, Inger Stevens, Lana Wood, Linda McCartney, Margaux Hemingway, Natalie Wood, Joan Collins, Cher, Brooke Hayward, Faye Dunaway, Maria Callas, Judy Carne, Daryl Hannah, Susannah York, Liv Ullmann, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Julie Christie, Princess Margaret, Joni Mitchell, Janice Dickinson, Goldie Hawn, Jessica Savitch, Michelle Phillips, Britt Ekland, Mary Tyler Moore, Candice Bergen, Mamie Van Doren, Carol Alt, Connie Chung, Kate Jackson, Lillian Hellman, Diane Sawyer, Barbra Streisand, Elle Macpherson, Carly Simon, Jane Fonda, Justine Bateman, Bianca Jagger, Stephanie Seymour, Diana Ross, Melanie Griffith, Barbara Hershey, and Madonna.

    and those are just the more famous names. He's dated every race, every religion, women older and younger than himself, tall women, short women, voluptuous women, slender women etc. etc. etc.

    Rumor has it he really wanted to marry Julie and raise a family with her. They're both beautiful, both intelligent, politically on the same side, shared many interests (social, environmental, intelectual, political) except one: Julie did not want to put children into a world she thought had too many things going on that disgusted her (at least that was given as the major reason).
    They parted as friends after an 8 year relationship, after which she starred in two more of his movies> Shampoo and Heaven Can Wait.
    They still have contact and Julie said this about Warren in 2002>
    "I think his greatest achievement is his fantastic wife and his four beautiful children, we talk often and I'm very fond of him, he is one of my oldest and dearest friends."

    Another - earlier - quote from her about Warren that I love>
    "Everybody claims they know Warren so well, but they don't. He's painfully shy and terribly misunderstood. He is beautiful on the inside as well as on the outside. He constantly tells me that no matter what I do he'll always be right behind me. That's quite reassuring to know that someone is willing to fall flat on their face with you."

    Hmmmm, weeeeeeeeeeelllllllll, of all the Warren movies I've seen (haven't seen all of them, and some of them I"ve only seen once ages ago) I must say I think Town and Country is definitely his worst. But it has its moments.
    A lot of it though, I find almost embarrassing to watch. It's like they started with a script/premise, but that everybody lost his/her copy halfway through shooting the movie.
    I think it's an indulgent movie, meaning that most of the cast are close friends (Warren, Diane, Goldie, Gary, Buck) and seem to like everything the other friend does. That way it got to be "funny" in places where it obviously was poor at best.
    The first part is okay and shows potential, the part in Sun Valley is just embarrassing to me and the ending far fetched. If these old friends love each other's company so much, they should make a home movie, but not bother us with this sub par stuff.
    My theory has always been that Warren was too pre-occupied with Bulworth at the time of shooting T&C, which was filmed BEFORE Bulworth. In T&C he was "just an actor for hire" while Bulworth he wrote, acted, directed and produced and was a definite masterpiece, that won approval all around.

    So, 1998 was the last year in which Warren worked on a movie as an actor (with T&C first and later the brilliant Bulworth). He has always been very selective in choosing his material. Between Reds and Ishtar there's 6 years, but obviously this has been his longest interval between projects. But then, as he's said when asked about his political ambitions, his answer is that he has a very great life with children young enough to be his grandchildren and that he just wants to enjoy his wife and kids. He's really settled down and seems to be thriving on his family life now. I guess he wants to experience everything he missed out on growing up as a child and I think it's commendable he takes time to do it. He's always said that his career was never more important than real life, which is why he made so few movies to begin with.

    In March of 1992, Beatty married Annette Bening who - two months earlier - had given him his first child, daughter Kathlyn. Almost fourteen years and three more kids later, they're still together.

    His second longest relationship was with the beautiful British actress Julie Christie. They were together for 8 years. During that time they made one movie together, McCabe and Mrs. Miller. After they parted, they made two more movies together, Shampoo and Heaven Can Wait.
    A few photos of this beautiful couple.

    The studio gave Warren an unprecedented 40% share in the movie’s
    gross intake. Not because they believed in him, but because they
    were certain the movie would bomb. Warren’s still raking them in nicely
    from this almost 40 year old movie!

    Warren was a one man promotion team. He singlehandedly assured a
    second release of the movie, working tirelessly without sleep for weeks,
    after the first release was hardly promoted by the studio.
    Only the second time around did the movie become a success.
    As I recall, it was released in August 1967, and the critics couldn't
    handle the violence at the end of it -- They trashed it to a man;
    all the major critics were appalled by it.

    But they didn't forget it.

    Bonnie & Clyde was one of the first movies to show simulated bullet
    wounds as they happened; explosions of blood were a relatively
    new phenomenon, having been invented (I think) for the spaghetti
    westerns that Clint Eastwood was doing in the mid-1960s.

    Beatty used this new technology for Bonnie & Clyde, and the ending
    of the film is staggeringly violent. In real life, Bonnie Parker died of
    over 60 bullet wounds; in the movie, it really looks it. The car is
    riddled with bulletholes and so are their bodies -- the younger
    generation being destroyed by the old. (The movie struck a chord with
    the Summer of Love generation, who were protesting the Vietnam War.)
    Cameras running at four different speeds caught the action
    as we see Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty strafed in the car.

    Later, by November 1967, critics gave it a second look and found a miraculous
    balance between the exhilaration of "playing" cops & robbers (accompanied
    by the infectious banjo music by Flatt & Scruggs) and the shocking
    bursts of violence and remorse (such as when a shop clerk comes at
    Beatty with a meat cleaver, or when a middle-aged man jumps on
    Clyde's running board as they're getting away and Clyde shoots him
    in the face).

    Roger Ebert once named it one of his ten best films of all time in a
    critics' poll in Sight & Sound magazine.

    I think I may contaminating you!

    I'm trying to get them all, but I've read that he - the quintessential perfectionist - is the reason for a delay in the release of for instance the Reds and Dick Tracy DVD's.......
    I think I have everything that's been released on DVD so far, except that horrible movie he made with his wife "Love Affair" I think it was called, a unnecessary remake of "An Affair To Remember".

    Shampoo has always been one of my all time fave movies, and it's a bonus that it happens to be a Warren Beatty movie. The entire plot/story is simply genius, against the backdrop of the 1968 elections and the changing times.

    He has that thing going on that you even like him even if the character he plays isn't all that nice Don't know if I'd call it "hurt little boy" exactly. Who knows, it may simply be that cross eyed look and pout!

    Many critics and columnists have said about him that he's always the underdog in his movies, or he dies, or at least he loses something or someone dear to him, or he simply loses, period.
