    "Perhaps it's getting to be an act of courage to say the truth about her.
    Well, let me be courageous. I have never met anybody as mean as Marilyn
    Monroe . . . nor as utterly fabulous on the screen.
    They've tried to manufacture other Marilyn Monroes and they will
    undoubtedly keep trying. But it won't work. She was an original.
    "
    Billy Wilder, who directed Marilyn in the legendary "Some Like It Hot"
    and "The Seven Year Itch".

    More quotes of celebs about celebs.
    Again: I have mostly material on and from my wrinkly hunk Warren Beatty,
    so bear with me

    "Marlon and I carried on a contest of remembering
    telephone numbers. I'd say something like, Eldorado
    5-2800' and he'd say 'That would be the Sherry-
    Netherland.' The only number I was able to stump him on
    was 275-4301. He'd say 'I know that number, I know that
    number....' I said: 'Gotcha! It's your number!'
    "
    Warren Beatty on one of the games he and Marlon
    Brando played together for years.


    "Diane is a person who can easily and interestingly
    and entertainingly seem to be in a constant state of
    ambivalence.
    "
    Warren Beatty on one time lover, now friend
    Diane Keaton.


    "I was on a plane on my way to Jamaica and Warren
    was on that same plane. He came and introduced himself
    to me and we had a lovely talk and when we landed, Cary
    Grant met me and Leslie Caron met him. He was ravishing,
    charming, just drop-alive gorgeous.
    "
    Dyan Cannon on meeting Beatty for the first time
    in the mid-sixties.


    "He is not a talker. You can tell him your deepest,
    darkest secrets, and you can be well sure that he will
    take that with him.
    "
    Goldie Hawn about Beatty's integrity and discretion.


    "It was a tiny one-bedroom apartment with this enormous
    wraparound terrace. You went up to the top floor and then
    walked up a flight of stairs. It was the most perfect place
    for Warren because it was weird and very romantic and
    very glamorous. He lived there long after he could have
    afforded to move somewhere else.
    "
    Robert Benton (co-writer of Bonnie&Clyde) about
    Warren's tiny roof-apartment at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel,
    that had a 360-degree view.


    "One night Richard Harris - who was very feisty in his
    younger days - got into the elevator with us. He was right
    behind Warren and was drunk and hostile and daring Warren
    to turn around, 'That bastard!'. Warren finally turned
    around and kissed him on the mouth. And Harris was so
    shocked, when we hit the lobby he said 'So what are
    you doing?' And Warren said 'I'm going for coffee.'
    And Harris said 'Let's go!' Warren is brilliant at defusing
    a situation like that.
    "
    Robert Benton (co-writer of Bonnie&Clyde) about
    Warren's encounter with a drunk Richard Harris.


    "Over the time that I knew him, it was my impression
    that Bobby Kennedy made the most impressive development
    of anyone that I had met. I thought that Bobby would have
    made a great president. You know, he had his faults, and he
    changed them. He was very unpretentious. Had a great sense
    of humor. He had a real passion, a real feeling of mission,
    and he was not afraid of words. He was not afraid to step
    up to the words.
    "
    Warren Beatty on working for and becoming friends
    with Robert Kennedy.


    "Now, maybe he loved too many women in his early days.
    But it wasn't all about sexuality. It was about his tenderness.
    Warren by nature is a caretaker. Yes, he's maddening. Yes,
    he's stubborn. But the bottom line is the nature of that
    animal is good. His intentions are pure. I was never one of
    his girls. I didn't want that caption. Maybe I loved him too
    much. Warren really, really is the brother I never had.
    "
    Goldie Hawn about how she sees Beatty and what
    she feels for him.


    "I was never one of his girls, either, but not because
    I wanted him for a brother. I don't look at that
    and think 'brother', in any way, shape or form.
    "
    Dyan Cannon on how she sees/saw Beatty.


    "We all know that Warren was the premier - how shall
    I put it? The sexual symbol? - of his time. He was a sex
    object. If I were gay, he would be the first guy that I
    would want to be with. He's got it. He'll always have it.
    I love women, too. I must assume he had a wonderful
    mother because for a man, the paradigm for womanhood
    is your mother. She had to be amazing because his
    feelings for women are elevated.
    "
    Paul Sorvino three time co-star and friend on how
    he sees and feels about Beatty.


    "When we were working on 'Ishtar', he'd come up to
    the apartment and all my kids were there. He was like the
    Pied Piper - a magnet. It had nothing to do with his celebrity.
    They didn't know his movies. And he would sit in the living
    room with the kids around him for hours and enthrall them.
    They also liked the fact that Warren is so big, in contrast
    to me. I was carrying my son Jake, who was six at the time,
    on my shoulders one day and he said, 'I know why you
    like to carry me on your shoulders, Dad. It makes you
    taller than your friend Warren.' I think they got so excited
    when he'd visit because he treated them exactly like he
    would treat adults. Back then, my wife, Lisa, and I were
    like 'What's the matter with this guy? Why isn't he married
    with kids?' I finally said to him, 'Do you really want to be in
    the place you are now when you are 70 years old?' He
    was ready then, and it happened to him not that much
    later. Lisa picked up the phone and Warren was on the other
    end, heaving - sobbing, actually. She knew Annette was
    in labor and she thought something went wrong with the
    birth, and finally he said, 'I have a daughter'.
    "
    Dustin Hoffman two time co-star and one of Warren's
    closest friends on Beatty's evolution from bachelor, "uncle"
    to fatherhood.

    ^Hoffman and Beatty in Ishtar,
    Annette and Warren with Kathlyn in 1993,
    Warren with 15 year old Kathlyn in 2007.

    I always loved that one Mark Wahlberg said about Madonna. "I like Madonna but she looks like Beetlejuice."

    I came upon this cute article, with a mention of
    my geriatric studmuffin, Warren Beatty :

    A-List Style- Ventana Monthly

    A-List Style



    WARREN BEATTY: “He was a very nice guy, not at all ‘precious.’
    He said he was considering making a movie about Bonnie and Clyde,
    and asked what I thought about shooting a gangster movie in color…
    We worked around a little bit for this shot. He had on a white shirt
    and a tie. I had a black sweater in the dressing room, and asked if
    he’d put that on. Well, first I asked if he’d take his shirt off, but he
    said no (laughs). I just wanted to get some edge—something interesting,
    rather a tie and white shirt. So he came back in and I said, ‘Instead of
    sitting in a chair, why don’t you get down on the floor.’ And I got down
    on the floor and started shooting these pictures with available light.
    He got very comfortable with that, and started working with his hands
    around the face to prop himself up. Something clicks when you know
    you’re onto something. When I got to this, I knew it was happening.
    And that’s the excitement of an assignment. It’s something you can’t
    plan. It’s something you just work with, and work and work and work
    until it happens—in that little frame.”
    The photography of Ventura’s Neal Barr—in his own words
    "I remember the first time I ever saw Warren. I must have been
    about 26," gushed Diane Keaton, who starred in the actor-director's
    Oscar-winning Reds. "It was at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. They used to
    have a bookstore there, and I was inside, and I looked out and saw him
    in the lobby. I thought, 'My God, he's so beautiful'. It was like there was
    a light. He looked at me for a second, and then passed me by. I thought,
    'I'll never know him.' The Annie Hall star did join the ranks of Beatty's
    babes, alongside stunners Catherine Deneuve, Faye Dunaway, Elle
    MacPherson, Diana Ross, Melanie Griffith and Janice Dickinson.
    ^There's about 9 years between Keaton and Beatty, so if she saw
    him at 26, he was in his mid thirties and looked something like this:


    PS: of course the article was wrong about Faye Dunaway being
    romantically linked to Beatty: she was only his co-star in Bonnie&Clyde.

    I just discovered this one from Marilyn Manson about Dita Von Teese. What a classy way to put it.

    I found two more quotes of celebs on Warren, dating from
    the 1992 during or right after "Bugsy" in the article below.
    Co-star Wendy Philips (who played Bugsy's wife)
    and the movie's producer Mark Johnson.

    "When Warren Beatty called a girl up, it was usually to try to get her
    into the sack. But he called me to find out what kind of bologna I used.
    I just don’t have what it takes, I guess. Raquel Welch has what it takes.
    She’s so sexy and gorgeous, even I want to jump on her!

    Estelle Parsons, to some perhaps best known as the whiny Bev Harris,
    mother of TV's Roseanne and Jackie Harris.


    "Warren, I love. He's extremely charming. When we did 'Bonnie and Clyde,'
    it was his first time as a producer. He has a fantastic mind, and such passion
    and conviction. I was lucky to work with him
    ."
    Estelle Parsons, Beatty's co-star in "Bonnie & Clyde" and "Dick Tracy".


    "Gene, I love. Before we did 'Bonnie and Clyde,' we had worked in the
    theatre together. We had the same rhythms as actors; people thought
    we were madly in love. Gene wanted to be a movie star. I said, 'Don't be
    silly. Stay in the theatre.' Before I got the movie ["Bonnie and Clyde"],
    Dusty [Dustin Hoffman], Gene, and I were doing a Murray Schisgal play,
    Fragments, at the Berkshire Playhouse
    ."
    Estelle Parsons, Hackman's co-star in "Bonnie & Clyde" and "I Never Sang for My Father".
