Warren Beatty, the Oscar-winning director and actor finally has a new film in theaters.
Rules Don’t Apply opens nationwide November 23rd, and stars Beatty as Hollywood tycoon and aviation pioneer Howard Hughes. Lily Collins and Alden Ehrenreich co-star as an aspiring actress and a driver, respectively, who fall in love but also must deal with the “rules” imposed against them by family, religion, and Hughes himself. Beatty, whose Hollywood career began in 1961 with Splendor in the Grass, says he’s long wanted to make a film about the eccentric and mysterious Hughes, and also wanted to write a project dealing with the changing attitudes toward sex during the late 1950s and early 1960s.
Good Day Atlanta’s Paul Milliken got the rare chance to sit down with Warren Beatty for a one-on-one interview about Rules Don’t Apply, and also talked to the up-and-coming co-stars about their experience working with a true Hollywood legend.
