Annette Bening turned down Catwoman role because she was pregnant with Warren Beatty’s child

Annette Bening has earned multiple Academy Award nominations for starring in some of Hollywood’s favorite feature films.

While her star power was only on the rise following “The Grifters” and “Bugsy,” Bening put family first to focus on motherhood while pregnant with her first child with husband Warren Beatty.

Bening, 65, who will soon portray long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad in the sports drama “Nyad,” faced a difficult decision nearly 30 years ago when she turned down portraying another feminine icon – Catwoman in “Batman Returns.”

Annette garnered her first Oscar nomination working alongside Anjelica Huston and John Cusack in Stephen Frears’ film adaptation of Jim Thompson’s novel, “The Grifters.”
