Annette Carol Bening (wife)
Duration of Marriage: 1992 till present
Date of Birth: May 29, 1958
Annette’s first marriage was on May 26, 1984 to choreographer J. Steven White and it lasted only till 1991. Beatty didn’t get married until his mid-fifties after a huge reputation as one of the biggest playboys in Hollywood. He had tried to meet with the talented America Beauty (1999) star for his film Dick Tracy but they never got together.
He was finally able to meet Bening on the set of Barry Levinson’s Bugsy (1991) and reportedly called his manager, telling him he loved and was going to marry his then co-star. They managed to keep things professional until Bugsy wrapped and within a year, he swapped sexual adventure for wedded bliss. No one would have thought that over two decades after, the Hollywood veteran would still be madly in love with his wife.
The star actress and filmmaker says the key to their happy union was them embracing their differences and the sparks that develop from them. Beatty on the other hand says respect has been the rock for them and his 20th Century Women stunner adds that there is also some passionate fire between them.
Stephen Beatty (son with Annette Bening)
Date of Birth: January 8, 1992
It came as a shocker to the Dick Tracy (1990) star when his eldest daughter Kathlyn confessed she wanted to be a man. She had been living as a man for at least two years previously but only came out publicly as a teenager. Stephen is now a writer and artist; he also describes himself as a faggy queen. He seems to be taking his style tips from gay author Truman Capote.
Warren didn’t find it easy at all as it took him quite a while to get used to this new transformation. Annette says Warren never stopped loving their child; he only had fears and plenty of issues to overcome. Now he sees his son as a brave and courageous human and has even learned about the transgender community in the past years.
