The longtime couple married in March 1992, and share four children, sons Stephen and Benjamin and daughters Isabel and Ella.
"I like 'respect,'" Bening said in an interview with "Today" in December of the secret to her relationship with Beatty. "But also I think in some ways we're very different, some ways we're alike. But the differences, I think, help us and there's some fire there."
"We want the same things; we have four children and they're incredible human beings," she added. "Having that shared purpose also is part of it."
Bell and Mara tied the knot in July after two years of dating. The actress confirmed the news on Instagram by sharing a photo from her wedding reception.
