Madonna and Warren Beatty promo photos for Dick Tracy (1990)
Madonna and Warren Beatty dated during the filming of the movie.
“She’s a huge personality, diligent and disciplined and a spectacular dancer and performer… When we were going [out] and she was making the documentary Truth or Dare, I said, ‘I don’t want to be in it.’ And she said, ‘Why would I want you in it?‘” Beatty recalls. But the actor eventually conceded: “I said if I can have approval, I don’t want to inhibit you.”
In one scene in the documentary, Madonna declines to have a doctor examine her off-camera and Beatty comments that “she doesn’t want to live off-camera, much less talk.” Now, he says he found her decision to include the moment touching.
“I thought that was a kind gesture on her part because that captured how I felt,” he says. “I was kind of touched by that because I felt that I said the right thing.”
