When Natalie Wood and Warren Beatty Were the Original Jetsetters

In 1961, legendary Hollywood lothario Warren Beatty was paired with America’s sweetheart Natalie Wood in the film “Splendor in the Grass. This would kick off a two year relationship that Wood later described as “a combination three-ring circus and five-alarm fire.”

Beatty would cruelly dump Wood on New Year’s Day in 1963. With quotes on relationships such as “My notion of a wife at 40 is that a man should be able to change her, like a bank note, for two 20s,” perhaps his boorish behavior was no surprise.  Anyways…

For two years during the Kennedy Administration, this power couple was nearly as glamorous as JFK and Jackie!

Here are 8 pics proving that this couple set the template for the jetsetter Hollywood lifestyle!
