Sometimes rules don’t apply to Hollywood stars. We’re talking about Annette Bening and Warren Beatty here. Last month they went to see their 17 year old son Ben perform in “South Pacific” at his exclusive private prep school. Refreshments were served at halftime in the lobby for the wealthy famous parents of these students. Signs and workers warned audience members that NO food was allowed in the auditorium. But Annette and Warren brought plates of snacks right to their seats where they munched unmolested. No one had the nerve to stop them. (Actually we’re happy to hear their marriage is OK.)

    Two of the most perfect Movie Stars ever. Legendary. A class unto themselves.

    But causing upset to Palermo? WHOA. That’s where a line must be drawn!

    It’s a miracle he didn’t get and/or infect every ho in GollyWeird. I think he was known as THE #1 Romeo back in the day. Maybe he got tested and properly medicated?

    Palermo: Chill. They snuck in some snacks. Try it sometimes…it doesn’t hurt anybody, and you get to feel a little rebellious!

    Say Something Nice: I agree! Both actors have delivered beautiful and iconic performances. I love them both!

    Hello!: Clearly you’re under 40. That’s not a bad thing, but let’s talk later.

    Everybody there was wealthy, but only two were famous it sounds like. That should not buy them special privileges, but of course it always does.

    Annette Bening has a quiet, intelligent attractiveness. She is aging gracefully and it complements her. Warren, however, in this picture seems to be overdosing on Cialis. He’s smiling but just can’t remember why.

    I doubt they were the old ones snacking in the auditorium. The monied, more than the famous, think that the rules don’t apply to them. After all, they’re paying for that auditorium!

    Janet you should have run the photo of Ben in his coconut bra and grass skirt. The photo was a hoot.

    Annette is aging gracefully, kudos to her.

    Ha! what a typo. Only ones not old ones, although I’m sure they weren’t the only old ones there either.

    I think Annette looks much better with the short fluffier haircut she had in An American President. Longer hair pulls her face downward, especially in this picture. She’s still a very pretty woman who is aging gracefully, as others here have said. I have never understood the appeal of Warren Beatty, even when he was a young stud. Oh well, to each her own, said the old lady as she kissed the cow.

    Splendor in the Grass, I just watched it on Turner Classic Movies and wow is all I can say about a young Warren Beatty. He was beyond hot. Other than that I like this couple and who cares if they snuck in snacks or not. Plus for some sick reason I really liked Heaven Can Wait too so Warren is okay in my book any day.

    My kid has been in Shakespeare plays every year since he was 7, and they are held in a beautiful, but really old theatre that also has strict rules about bringing anything into the theatre (they have a reception area for eating & drinking). They are so strict about it, they announce it before, after & during intermission. They go so far as to explain that they’ve had horrible stains from water on the old wood, etc, and that there are water fountains placed outside each entrance door to the theatre. So who ignores them & brings in their water anyway? Celebrities, of course.

    I’m not sure what you guys mean by Annette aging “gracefully”. That she isn’t botoxed & pulled tight? That I can agree with, but aging well…definitely not. Her face started wrinkling and crinkling at a quite young age (smoking wrecks your skin people) and now I would compare her skin to my mom, who is 80. Not kidding or trying to be bitchy, just being truthful. I love Annette’s movies, think she is a great actress, but honestly, she is either cursed with bad skin genetically or else doesn’t take care of it. The pic of Princess Caroline of Monaco is another example of what heavy smoking & drinking will do to you, I was shocked at how bad she looks now. I have a sis her age & my sis looks many years younger.

    Annie has a matronly look and has for quite some time now. Warren tho looks like he’s been run over by a steam roller.

    They are just setting up good morals for their son.

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
