Alum Annette Bening's Latest Film: 'Film Stars Don't Die'

Wednesday, November 15, 2017

DAILY MAIL (LONDON) -- Annette Bening reunited with her onscreen toyboy Jamie Bell on Tuesday at Le Cirque for a Manhattan screening of their romantic drama, Film Stars Don’t Die, in Liverpool.

At 59, the four-time Oscar nominee is 28 years older than the Englishman, and they play lovers in Paul McGuigan’s flick hitting U.K. theatres this Thursday and U.S. theatres December 29.

“[I’m hopeful there] will be more stories about people who aren’t just young and in love, about people who are older and sophisticated — what the sex is about, what the reality is, especially for women getting older. Not just this cliché,” Bening says. “The reality is a lot more subtle.”

The San Francisco State grad went on to describe Bell as a ”wonderful man, who is very grounded.”
