ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY -- Bening said she first became familiar with Feinstein in 1978.
“I was going to San Francisco State. She was on the Board of Supervisors and then became mayor. I had just moved there, and I was in class, and we were informed of the assassinations. She became mayor at that point. There’s a really interesting film about female senators that was made about 10 years ago — in fact a little bit more than that — and they asked me to narrate it, so I did. She’s interviewed in that film and she talks about what happened in City Hall. It’s an amazing story, and one I don’t think she’d ever really told before, which is a measure of her character.”
