Profile Bio Text
Warren Beatty (born March 30, 1937) is an American actor, producer, screenwriter and director. Beatty was born Henry Warren Beaty in Richmond, Virginia`s Bellevue neighborhood. His mother, Kathlyn Corinne (née MacLean), was a Nova Scotia–born drama teacher, and his father, Ira Owens Beaty, was a professor of psychology, a public school administrator, and a real estate agent. Beatty started his career making appearances in television series such as Studio One (1957), Playhouse 90 (1959), and The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis (1959). He made his film debut under Elia Kazan`s direction and opposite Natalie Wood in Splendor in the Grass (1961). The film was a box office success and Beatty was nominated for a Golden Globe Award in the category Best Motion Picture Actor - Drama. Subsequently he appeared in several films which went relatively unnoticed. Then, at age 30, he achieved critical acclaim and power as a producer and star of Bonnie and Clyde (1967), which was nominated for 10 Academy Awards. Because of his work on Bonnie and Clyde (1967), Beatty is generally regarded as the precursor of the New Hollywood generation, which included such filmmakers as Francis Ford Coppola, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Martin Scorsese.
Beatty is one of the few people to receive Oscar nominations in the Best Picture, Actor, Director, and Screenplay categories for a single film. This feat is all the more impressive since Beatty achieved it twice—in 1978 for Heaven Can Wait, where he won none of the awards; and again for Reds in 1981, where he won the directing award. He received Best Picture and Best Actor nominations for both Bonnie and Clyde (1967) and Bugsy (1991), and received Best Original Screenplay nominations for Shampoo (1975) and Bulworth (1998). In 2006, Beatty was named Honorary Chairman of the Stella Adler Studio of Acting, succeeding Marlon Brando. In 2007, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association awarded Beatty the Cecil B. DeMille award, presented at the Golden Globe ceremony by Tom Hanks. Beatty was honored with the AFI Life Achievement Award in 2008. Beatty is on the Board of Trustees at The Scripps Research Institute.
Beatty has had relationships with singers Madonna, Cher, Carly Simon, Michelle Phillips, actresses Natalie Wood and sister Lana Wood, Julie Christie, Leslie Caron, Joan Collins, Diane Keaton, Isabelle Adjani, Mary Tyler Moore. and supermodel Stephanie Seymour. In 1989, he recorded the duet, "Now I`m Following You" with Madonna for her 1990 album, I`m Breathless. After years of dating many famous women, he married Annette Bening on March 10, 1992, with whom he co-starred in the film Bugsy. They have four children: Kathlyn Elizabeth Beatty (born January 8, 1992), Benjamin MacLean Beatty (born August 23, 1994), Isabel Ira Ashley Beatty (born January 11, 1997) and Ella Corinne Beatty (born April 8, 2000).
