Henry Warren Beatty landed on earth on 30 March 1937 in Richmond, Virginia, America. His mother, Kathlyn Corinne, was a teacher and his father, Ira Owens Beatty, had a doctorate in educational psychology and worked as an administrator of public schools. His grandparents were educators as well.

He attended Arlington's Washington-Lee High School where he emerged as a football star. At that time, his elder sister, Shirley MacLaine, ventured into acting, which also motivated him to act. He was reportedly offered several college football scholarships, but he declined them and in 1954 chose to study liberal arts at Northwestern University. After a year, he left the university to study acting with prominent coach Stella Adler in the Stella Adler Acting Studio.
