Annette Bening is sharing the secret to her 27-year marriage to former Hollywood ladies’ man, Warren Beatty.
Almost three decades ago fans were shocked when Beatty, who had quite the reputation in Hollywood, married the beautiful Bening. There were a lot of bets placed on their union back then, but the happy couple has broken all odds. They have one of the longest marriages in Hollywood and an unbreakable love that will make even the coldest of hearts melt.
The 60-year-old actress recently opened up to US Weekly about her secret to marriage with her man. It is honestly not that complicated.

“There is no secret as anyone who’s been married knows. We have an incredible family. We have beautiful children. We’ve been through a lot. It’s the center of life. It’s the most important thing. It’s everything,” Bening said at the Arthur Miller’s All My Sons Broadway opening night in New York City the other day.
Beatty was on hand at the opening to support his wife, who plays Kate Keller in the return of All My Sons‘ to Broadway. The 82-year-old had a different take regarding the secret to a long-lasting marriage.
“I don’t think it’s a secret. Did you see this performance? I don’t think there’s a finer actress,” Beatty gushed about the woman who means everything to him. He also revealed he knew within seconds that Bening was “the one.”
The family, the Captain Marvel actress, refers to includes their four children. Sons Stephen age 27, and Benjamin age 24, as well as daughters Isabel age 22, and Ella age 19. Beatty even took a career hiatus after they wed and began having children. It was extremely important to him and Bening to give their kids a normal childhood.
