The film, which he wrote and produced, marks the first time Beatty has directed his wife. "He's great, he's very enthusiastic," Bening said of her husband, who has directed a total of four films. "He thinks everything you do is wonderful. He let us improvise, it was really fun for me. So fun."

The two met on the set of their 1991 film Bugsy and married shortly thereafter. Two decades later, the Oscar winner says that it seems like it was only yesterday.

"It feels recent," he said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "It is the best thing that has ever occurred with me."

Rules Don’t Apply hits theaters on Nov. 23 and also stars Alec Baldwin, Ed Harris and Lily Collins.
