Annette Bening and Warren Beatty have been married for almost 26 years now. While many were initially skeptical about whether this relationship would last, these two proved everyone wrong. Even though they have been together in what feels like an eternity, there’s still lots that people don’t know about the couple, so check out these 12 fun facts about their relationship:
They met in 1990 when Beatty was looking for a leading lady for the mafia drama Bugsy. He took her out to lunch and almost immediately fell in love with her. “It took about 10 minutes [to fall in love with her]. Maybe five,” he said. He then called the director for the film, Barry Levinson, and told him that he loved Bening and was going to marry her!
11. When They Almost Met
Before Bugsy, the actor/director had tried to cast Bening in Dick Tracy. She had just co-starred alongside Colin Firth in Valmont and Beatty wanted her for the part of Tess Truehart. Although he set up a meeting with her to discuss the role, she later cancelled. “I asked why and I was told that her ex-husband had a problem in New York and she went to see if she was needed at all,” Beatty recalled. “I was impressed with whoever that was.”
