In her autobiography Let's Just Say It Wasn't Pretty, the actress admitted she only found him stunning from the right side. Describing Warren as her one-time true love, Diane said:

A person I loved in real time, not reel, and not in a photograph. Real life Warren was a collector’s item, a rare bird. He had aspirations I couldn’t begin to contemplate.

Where are they now

Though Warren was one of Hollywood’s most legendary bachelors, it wasn’t until he met Annette Bening that he left his old ways behind. The couple are happily married with four children.
