Beatty, Bening Upstage Schwarzenegger Campaign Bus Tour...

SAN DIEGO — In a celebrity standoff, actor Warren Beatty and his wife, Annette Bening, tried to crash Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's campaign rally at an airplane hangar here and were barred from going inside after a confrontation with the governor's aides.

The appearance by the movie-star couple upstaged the beginning of the governor's four-city campaign bus tour, as Beatty publicly argued with aides who refused to let him inside to watch the governor speak.

An outspoken opponent of the governor's agenda, Beatty refused to leave when Schwarzenegger's campaign team made it clear he was not welcome at the invitation-only event and accused Beatty of being a force for the political status quo.

Beatty has appeared in a radio ad urging voters to defeat the governor's four ballot measures, which are up for a vote Tuesday.
