Warren Beatty

actor, director, producer, writer (born March 30, 1937, in Richmond, Virginia) In 1962, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association awarded Warren Beatty the Most Promising Newcomer Award. Rarely has anyone lived up to the title so brilliantly—and so often. He made his film-acting debut in 1961's Splendor in the Grass, and instantly became one of the screen's most charismatic stars. He made his producing debut with 1967's Bonnie and Clyde—in which he also starred—and created a milestone in American film. He made his writing debut with 1975's Shampoo—which he also produced and starred in—and fashioned a wistful and iconic portrait of American culture.
