Warren Beatty made his first-ever appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday and admitted to having a crush on the talk show host back in the mid ’90s. The pair crossed paths when DeGeneres guest-starred on The Larry Sanders Show. Beatty, who was good friends with Garry Shandling, told him he was “very impressed” with her performance.
However, there was one thing Beatty didn’t realize about DeGeneres, which she pointed out to him.
“I think you didn’t know I was gay at the time,” said DeGeneres.
“I didn’t. I had no idea,” Beatty said. “I knew you were happy. I didn’t know you were gay.”
