Annette Bening reveals Warren Beatty’s ‘economical’ Valentine’s Day gift

💕

After 30 years of marriage, Annette Bening and Warren Beatty are still in love.

The “American Beauty” star, 63, stopped by “The Kelly Clarkson Show” earlier this week with her “Death on the Nile” director and co-star Kenneth Branagh.

The two discuss their Valentine’s Day plans and share their special traditions for a romantic getaway.

Bening told host Kelly Clarkson that she and Beatty, 84, like to keep the holidays simple.

“It’s very stress-free,” she said. “Valentine’s Day is pretty low-key. He usually makes me feel like a little lover with just a red felt pen and makes me have a little heart. His message is very economical.”

The Captain Marvel star continued, “There’s nothing to buy him. He’s one of those guys and you can’t find anything about him. . . so, no, it’s usually little things; It’s a small note, it’s a flower, yes.”

As for Branagh, 61, he has been married to his wife Lindsay Brennock for 18 years. He jokingly revealed to Clarkson that he wrote “terrible poetry” for Brennock and that she “rolled her eyes on Valentine’s morning”.

Beatty and Bening have four children together since their marriage in 1992 – Stephen, 30, Ben, 27, Isabelle, 25, and Ella, 21. Their oldest child became transgender in 2012.

Earlier this month, Bening spoke to PEOPLE about her relationship with the director of “The Rules Don’t Apply.” She explained that her first impression of the Oscar winner “was that he was very smart.”

“I remember thinking ‘Wow, this guy is so smart, so sharp and funny, but more — just articulate,'” she said. “He’s very talkative [and] Passionate about his upcoming film. He has a lot to say – sure, he’s charming. “

Keeping the kids together, she added, “is something I’ve always wanted to do, ever since I was a kid, and the moment I can start babysitting, like 12 or 13, I’m a nanny in the neighborhood,” Benin said. “It always came naturally to me. Nothing came close.”

Now that her children are grown up and away from home, Benin finds herself an empty nester. “Sometimes it’s hard for me to let go and just remember, ‘Oh, that’s not my job anymore,'” Bening said.

“I’m so proud of these grown kids, they’re not kids, but they’re my kids. They’re so different, they’re all there to find themselves and their voices. We think we’re here to teach them, of course, we realize They taught us everything.”

Before marrying Benin, Beatty was considered Don Juan and dated many famous women including Cher, Joan Collins, Diane Keaton and Madonna.
