Bening shared ahead of the big, romantic holiday how husband Beatty prefers to celebrate Valentine’s Day. The iconic couple celebrates 30 years of marriage in March.

“It’s pretty no-pressure,” she said of their low-key Valentine’s Day traditions.

“… Valentine’s is pretty low-key. He will generally make me like a little Valentine with just a little red felt pen and make a little heart. He’s very economical in his message.”

Bening added, “There’s nothing to buy for him. He’s one of those men, you cannot find anything that he…. So, no, it’s usually something small; it’s a little note, it’s a flower, yeah.”

Earlier this month, Bening, 63, shared her very first impression of Beatty when they met. “He was incredibly intelligent. I remember thinking ‘Wow, this guy is so smart and so sharp and funny, but more — just articulate.’ “

“He was very talkative. He was very passionate about the movie that he was about to make. He had a lot to say — and he was charming, for sure,” she recalled.

Both she and Beatty, 84, raised a grand total of four kids together: Stephen, 30, Ben, 27, Isabel, 25, and Ella, 21. Having a family together, “was something I always wanted to do, ever since I was a little kid, the minute I could start babysitting, like 12 or 13, I was the neighborhood babysitter,” Bening said.

“It just always felt natural to me. Nothing comes close.”

They continued on the subject of being an empty-nester, “Sometimes it’s hard for me to let go and just remember, ‘Oh, that’s not my job anymore.’ I’m so proud of these adult children, who aren’t children, but they’re my kids. They’re all so different and they’re all out there discovering themselves and their voices. We think we’re there to teach them, and, of course, what we realize is that that they teach us everything.”

Death on the Nile is now in theaters.
