Early life[edit] Henry Warren Beaty was born March 30, 1937, in Richmond, Virginia. His mother, Kathlyn Corinne (née MacLean), was a teacher from Nova Scotia. His father, Ira Owens Beaty, had studied for a PhD in educational psychology and worked as a teacher and school administrator, in addition to dealing in real estate.[9] Beatty's grandparents were also teachers. The family was Baptist.[10][11] In 1945, the family moved from Richmond to Arlington, Virginia. During the 1950s, the family resided in the Dominion Hills section of Arlington.[12] Beatty's elder sister is the actress, dancer and writer Shirley MacLaine. His uncle, by marriage, was Canadian politician A. A. MacLeod. Beatty became interested in movies before his teens, when he often accompanied his sister to theaters. One film that had an important early influence on him was The Philadelphia Story (1940), which he saw when it was re-released in the 1950s. He noticed a strong resemblance between its star, Katharine Hepburn, and his mother, in both appearance and personality, saying that they symbolized "perpetual integrity."[13] Another film that had an impact on him was Love Affair (1939), which starred one of his favorite actors, Charles Boyer.[13] He found it "deeply moving," and recalls that "This is a movie I always wanted to make."[13] He did remake Love Affair in 1994, in which he starred alongside Annette Bening
Annette Bening
and Katharine Hepburn. Among his favorite TV shows in the 1950s was the Texaco Star Theatre, and he began to mimic one if its regular host comedians, Milton Berle. Beatty learned to do a "superb imitation of Berle and his routine," said a friend, and he often used Berle-type humor at home.[13] His sister Shirley MacLaine's lasting memories of her brother include seeing him reading books by Eugene O'Neill
Eugene O'Neill
or singing along to Al Jolson records.[13] In Rules Don't Apply (2016), Beatty plays Howard Hughes, who is shown talking about and singing Jolson songs while flying his plane.[14] MacLaine noted, on what made her brother want to become a filmmaker, sometimes writing, producing, directing and starring in his films: "That's why he's more comfortable behind the camera," she says. "He's in the total-control aspect. He has to have control over everything.[13] Beatty doesn't deny that need; in speaking about his earliest parts, he said "When I acted in films I used to come with suggestions about the script, the lighting, the wardrobe, and people used to say 'Waddya want, to produce the picture as well?' And I used to say that I supposed I did."[15] Education[edit] Beatty was a star football player at Washington-Lee High School
Washington-Lee High School
in Arlington. Encouraged to act by the success of his sister, who had recently established herself as a Hollywood star, he decided to work as a stagehand at the National Theatre in Washington, D.C. during the summer before his senior year. After graduation, he was reportedly offered ten football scholarships to college, but turned them down to study liberal arts at Northwestern University
Northwestern University
(1954–55), where he joined the Sigma Chi
Sigma Chi
fraternity. After his first year, he left college to move to New York City, where he studied acting under Stella Adler at the Stella Adler
Stella Adler
Studio of Acting.[16] Military service[edit] Fearing that his acting career would be interrupted by being drafted, Beatty used a well-thought-out scheme to resolve the issue of military service without ever serving on active duty. He enlisted in the California Air National Guard on February 11, 1960 under his original name Henry W. Beaty. On January 1, 1961, he was given a dishonorable discharge from the Air National Guard and the United States Air Force Reserve. This made him ineligible for the draft and any military service. Career[edit] 1950s and 1960s[edit] Beatty started his career making appearances on television shows such as Studio One (1957), Kraft Television Theatre
Kraft Television Theatre
(1957), and Playhouse 90 (1959). He was a semi-regular on The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis during its first season (1959–60). His performance in William Inge's A Loss of Roses on Broadway garnered him a 1960 Tony Award
Tony Award
nomination for Best Featured Actor in a Play and a 1960 Theatre World Award. It was his sole appearance on Broadway.[17] He made his film debut in Elia Kazan's Splendor in the Grass
Splendor in the Grass
(1961), opposite Natalie Wood. The film was a critical and box office success and Beatty was nominated for a Golden Globe Award
Golden Globe Award
for Best Actor, and received the award for New Star of the Year – Actor.[18] The film was also nominated for two Oscars, winning one. Author Peter Biskind points out that Kazan "was the first in a string of major directors Beatty sought out, mentors or father figures from whom he wanted to learn."[19] Beatty, years later during a Kennedy Center tribute to Kazan, told the audience that Kazan "had given him the most important break in his career."[19]:23 Biskind adds that they "were wildly dissimilar—mentor vs. protege, director vs. actor, immigrant outsider vs. native son. Kazan was armed with the confidence born of age and success, while Beatty was virtually aflame with the arrogance of youth."[19] Kazan recalls his impressions of Beatty:

Warren—it was obvious the first time I saw him—wanted it all and wanted it his way. Why not? He had the energy, a very keen intelligence, and more chutzpah than any Jew I've ever known. Even more than me. Bright as they come, intrepid, and with that thing all women secretly respect: complete confidence in his sexual powers, confidence so great that he never had to advertise himself, even by hints.[20]

Mr. Beatty's career has had all the hallmarks of the conventional Hollywood golden boy. Ingratiating good looks, disarming youthfulness, a delight in the social life and no apparently strong feelings about his craft. This image has now been strikingly shattered with his emergence as a vividly individual actor and as a highly imaginative producer in the gangster ballad, Bonnie and Clyde... At 28 [sic], the image of Warren Beatty, fun-loving playboy, is dead. Warren Beatty, a man of the cinema, is born.

—Gerald Garrett, syndicated movie columnist [15]

He followed his initial film with Tennessee Williams' The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone (1961), with Vivien Leigh
Vivien Leigh
and Lotte Lenya, directed by Jose Quintero; All Fall Down (1962), with Angela Lansbury, Karl Malden and Eva Marie Saint, directed by John Frankenheimer; Lilith (1963), with Jean Seberg
Jean Seberg
and Peter Fonda, directed by Robert Rossen; Promise Her Anything (1964), with Leslie Caron, Bob Cummings
Bob Cummings
and Keenan Wynn, directed by Arthur Hiller; Mickey One
Mickey One
(1965), with Alexandra Stewart and Hurd Hatfield, directed by Arthur Penn; and Kaleidoscope (1966), with Susannah York
Susannah York
and Clive Revill, directed by Jack Smight. In 1965, he formed a production company, Tatira, which he named it for Kathlyn (whose nickname was "Tat") and Ira.[21] At age 29, Beatty produced and acted in Bonnie and Clyde, which would be released in 1967. He assembled a team that included the writers Robert Benton and David Newman, and the director, Arthur Penn. Beatty selected most of the cast, including Faye Dunaway, Gene Hackman, Estelle Parsons, Gene Wilder
Gene Wilder
and Michael J. Pollard. Beatty also oversaw the script and spearheaded the delivery of the film. Gene Hackman
Gene Hackman
was chosen because Beatty had acted with him in Lilith in 1964 and felt he was a "great" actor.[22] Upon completion of the film, he credited Hackman with giving the "most authentic performance in the movie, so textured and so moving," recalls Dunaway.[22] He was impressed with Gene Wilder
Gene Wilder
after seeing him in a play and didn't even need him to audition, in what became Wilder's screen debut. And Beatty had already known Pollard: " Michael J. Pollard was one of my oldest friends," Beatty said. "I'd known him forever; I met him the day I got my first television show. We did a play together on Broadway."[22] Bonnie and Clyde went on to be a critical and commercial success, despite the early misgivings by studio head Jack Warner, who put up the production money. Before filming began, Warner had asked an associate, "What does Warren Beatty
Warren Beatty
think he's doing? How did he ever get us into this thing? This gangster stuff went out with Cagney."[22] The film was nominated for ten Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Actor, and seven Golden Globe Awards, including Best Picture and Best Actor.[18] 1970s and 1980s[edit] After Bonnie and Clyde, Beatty acted with Elizabeth Taylor
Elizabeth Taylor
in The Only Game in Town (1970), directed by George Stevens; McCabe & Mrs. Miller (1971), directed by Robert Altman; Dollars (1971), directed by Richard Brooks; The Parallax View
The Parallax View
(1974), directed by Alan Pakula; and The Fortune
The Fortune
(1975), directed by Mike Nichols. Beatty produced, co-wrote and acted in Shampoo (1975), directed by Hal Ashby, which was nominated for four Academy Awards, including Best Original Screenplay, as well as five Golden Globe Awards, including Best Motion Picture and Best Actor. In 1978, Beatty directed, produced, wrote and acted in Heaven Can Wait (1978) (sharing co-directing credit with Buck Henry). The film was nominated for nine Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Director, Actor, and Adapted Screenplay. It also won three Golden Globe Awards, including Best Motion Picture and Best Actor.

A film [Reds] of this scope and size demands incredible work from the director, and when you consider that Beatty also served as producer, writer and star, it's hard to believe so much work could come from one man. As a film, it's a marvelous view of America in the 1912-19 era, and Beatty brought some superior performances from a large cast.

—Joe Pollack, syndicated columnnist[23]

Beatty's next film was Reds (1981), a historical epic about American Communist journalist John Reed who observed the Russian October Revolution – a project Beatty had begun researching and filming for as far back as 1970. It was a critical and commercial success, despite being an American film about an American Communist made and released at the height of the Cold War. It received 12 Academy Award nominations – including four for Beatty (for Best Picture, Director, Actor, and Original Screenplay), winning three; Beatty won for Best Director, Maureen Stapleton
Maureen Stapleton
won for Best Supporting Actress (playing anarchist Emma Goldman), and Vittorio Storaro
Vittorio Storaro
won for Best Cinematography.[24] The film received seven Golden Globe nominations, including Best Motion Picture, Director, Actor and Screenplay. Beatty won the Golden Globe Award
Golden Globe Award
for Best Director. Following Reds, Beatty did not appear in a film for five years until 1987's Ishtar, written and directed by Elaine May.[25] Following severe criticism in press reviews by the new British studio chief David Puttnam
David Puttnam
just prior to its release, the film received mixed reviews and was unimpressive commercially.[26] Puttnam attacked several other over-budget U.S. films greenlit by his predecessor and was fired shortly thereafter.[27] 1990s and 2000s[edit]

Beatty at the 62nd Academy Awards
Academy Awards
(1990)

Under his second production company, Mulholland Productions,[28] Beatty next produced, directed and played the title role of comic strip-based detective Dick Tracy
Dick Tracy
in the 1990 film of the same name. The film received positive reviews and was one of the highest-grossing films of the year.[29] It received seven Academy Award
Academy Award
nominations, winning three for Best Art Direction, Best Makeup, and Best Original Song.[30] It also received four Golden Globe Award
Golden Globe Award
nominations, including Best Motion Picture.[31] In 1991, he produced and starred as the real-life gangster Bugsy Siegel in the critically and commercially acclaimed Bugsy, directed by Barry Levinson, which was nominated for ten Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Actor; it later won two of the awards for Best Art Direction and Best Costume Design.[32] The film also received eight Golden Globe Award
Golden Globe Award
nominations, including Best Motion Picture and Best Actor, winning for Best Motion Picture. Beatty's next film, Love Affair (1994), directed by Glenn Gordon Caron, received mixed reviews and was unimpressive commercially.[33] In 1998, he wrote, produced, directed and starred in the political satire Bulworth, which was critically acclaimed and was nominated for the Academy Award
Academy Award
for Best Original Screenplay.[34] The film also received three Golden Globe Award
Golden Globe Award
nominations, for Best Motion Picture, Best Actor, and Best Screenplay.[35] Beatty has appeared briefly in numerous documentaries, including Madonna: Truth or Dare (1991) and One Bright Shining Moment: The Forgotten Summer of George McGovern (2005). Following the poor box office performance of Town & Country (2001), in which Beatty starred, he did not appear in or direct another film for 15 years. In May 2005, Beatty sued Tribune Media, claiming he still maintained the rights to Dick Tracy.[36] On March 25, 2011, U.S. District Judge Dean Pregerson ruled in Beatty's favor.[37] 2010s[edit]

Rules Don't Apply (2016)

Who else is better equipped to understand the symbiosis between show business and politics and to assert that when a certain degree of wealth and power have been achieved, the ordinary rules of human behavior can be flouted?... Fools and idiots abound, but demonic, systemic evil does not. Mr. Beatty obviously loves Hollywood, which has been good to him.

—Stephen Holden, New York Times[38]

In 2010, Beatty directed and reprised his role as Dick Tracy
Dick Tracy
in a 30-minute comedy film titled Dick Tracy
Dick Tracy
Special, which premiered on TCM. The short metafiction film stars Dick Tracy
Dick Tracy
and film critic and historian Leonard Maltin, the latter of whom discusses the history and creation of Tracy. Tracy talks about how he admired Ralph Byrd and Morgan Conway
Morgan Conway
who portrayed him in several films, but says he didn't care much for Beatty's portrayal of him or his film.[39] At CinemaCon In April 2016, Beatty said he intends to make a Dick Tracy
Dick Tracy
sequel.[40] Rules Don't Apply (2016), is a fictionalized true-life romantic comedy about Howard Hughes, set in 1958 Hollywood and Las Vegas.[41] It stars Beatty, who wrote, co-produced and directed the film. It co-stars Alden Ehrenreich
Alden Ehrenreich
and Lily Collins, with supporting actors including Annette Bening, Alec Baldwin, Matthew Broderick, Candice Bergen, Ed Harris and Martin Sheen. Some have said that Beatty's film is 40 years in the making.[42] In the mid-1970s, Beatty signed a contract with Warner Bros.
Warner Bros.
to star in, produce, write, and possibly direct a film about Howard Hughes.[43] The project was put on hold when Beatty began Heaven Can Wait. Initially, Beatty planned to film the life story of John Reed and Hughes back-to-back, but as he was getting deeper into the project, he eventually focused primarily on the Reed film Reds. In June 2011, it was reported that Beatty would produce, write, direct and star in a film about Hughes, focusing on an affair he had with a younger woman in the final years of his life.[44] During this period, Beatty interviewed actors to star in his ensemble cast. He met with Andrew Garfield, Alec Baldwin, Owen Wilson, Justin Timberlake, Shia LaBeouf, Jack Nicholson, Evan Rachel Wood, Rooney Mara, and Felicity Jones.[45] It was released on November 23, 2016, and was Beatty's first film in 15 years.[46] [b] Rotten Tomatoes' "Top Critics" gave the film a 63% "Fresh" rating,[47] with one review calling it "hugely entertaining."[48] Another review said that "the wait was worth it."[49] The film was also a commercial disappointment.[50] In 2017, Beatty reunited with his Bonnie and Clyde co-star Faye Dunaway at the 89th Academy Awards, in celebration of the film's 50th anniversary. After being introduced by Jimmy Kimmel, they received a standing ovation as they walked out onto the stage to present the Best Picture Award. They had the wrong envelope, leading Dunaway to incorrectly announce La La Land as Best Picture, instead of the actual winner, Moonlight.[51][52] This became a social media sensation, trending all over the world.[53] In 2018, Beatty and Dunaway returned to present Best Picture at the 90th Academy Awards, earning a standing ovation upon their entrance, making jokes about the previous year's flub. Without incident, Beatty announced The Shape of Water as the winner. Upon coming to the stage, Guillermo del Toro
Guillermo del Toro
double-checked the envelope and nodded to the audience, confirming that Beatty got it right.[54] Honors[edit]

Notes[edit]

^ Beatty changed the original spelling "Beaty" in 1957. Pronounced /ˈbeɪti/ BAY-tee.[1][2][3] Both Warren Beatty
Warren Beatty
and his sister, Shirley MacLaine
Shirley MacLaine
(Beaty), have said they consider only this pronunciation correct, and Warren was fond of saying the name should rhyme with "weighty", not "Wheaties".[4][5] But the pronunciation /ˈbiːti/ BEE-tee is so common that it is also or exclusively recorded in some reliable reference works.[6][7] ^ It began principal photography in February 2014 and wrapped in June of the same year.[42]
