The Oscar-winning siblings (Beatty as director for "Reds" in 1981 and MacLaine as actress for 1983's "Terms of Endearment") studied acting as youths. MacLaine began as a dancer, then transitioned to acting, while Beatty three years her junior studied under Stella Adler, then became an actor and director. They share another honor, since MacLaine has just been announced as an AFI Life Achievement honoree. Beatty received the honor in 2008.
