Jean Weber, New Orleans, La. A Warren Beatty, 48, is much more than the Hollywood rogue some think he is. He's a handsome, charming, versatile film star and multimillionaire producer. He has been an adviser to Sen. Gary Hart, George McGovern and other politicians of liberal persuasion. He has dated Joan Collins, Leslie Caron, Julie Christie, Michelle Phillips, Carly Simon, Joni Mitchell, Lori Singer, Diane Keaton and countless others without succumbing to marriage. If Kelly McGillis is not looking for matrimony at age 27, she can learn a great deal from Beatty. Q am very much inter- ested in a young woman from these parts who was described in "The Washington Post" as "with the exception of Nancy Reagan, the most powerful woman at the White House." Her name is Margaret Tutwiler. I understand she is no longer in the White House. Where is she? W.S., Mountain Brook, Ala. A Margaret Tutwiler, 34, former deputy assistant to the President for political affairs and executive assistant to Chief of Staff James Baker III, has followed Baker to the U.S. Treasury, where he is Secretary of the Treasury. She is assistant secretary designate for public affairs and public liaison. 1 Margaret Tutwiler l How much did Dustin Hoffman make for acting in "Tootsie"? I have heard figures ranging from $5 million to $50 million. Are these figures anywhere in the ballpark? Ron Kaufman, Tulsa, Okla. A "Tootsie," released by Columbia Pictures in 1982, is one of the 10 most commercially successful films of all time. In its first 30 weeks of release, it grossed $177 million domestically. In addition to his salary, Hoffman undoubtedly negotiated a percentage of the film's profits or gross revenue. An executive at Columbia, who prefers to remain nameless in the matter, says, "Dustin Hoffman's take from 'Tootsie' is probably approaching $10 million, and he deserves every cent of it." ; 1 - 1 I v Y - 1 t Jessica Lange and Dustin Hoffman in "Tootsie" Q David Stockman, director of the budget, described our military pension system as "a scandal. " What is the military pension system anyway? Keep it short. honey Friedman, Long Beach, N.Y. A Members of the military can retire after 20 years at 50 of their base pay and after 30 years at 75, plus cost-of-living increases that make their pensions inflation-proof. Retired enlisted men average $8000 to $10,000 a year and retired officers $20,000 a year after a 20-year stint. Of those who retired in 1983, about 75 were 50 or younger, which means they can take a civilian job and later obtain Social Security retirement benefits. Some critics believe the pension system is overgenerous, others say it's not generous enough. Congress may revise the system this year, if it hasn't already. Brigitte Bardot at SO I Q What's the story on the FrnL'h superstar Brigitte Bardot? Is she or is she not terminally ill with a brain tumor? F.h., Montreal, Quebec A Brigitte Bardot, 50, reportedly has undergone surgery for the removal of a breast tumor not a brain tumor. She is said to have finished a series of radiation treatments. country: Ana who are the most prominent Italian American politicians? Anthony Fante, Utica, N.Y. A There are about 12.2 million Italian-Americans in the U.S. -Some of the most prominent Italian-American politicians are Govs. Mario Cuomo, Richard Celeste and Ed DiPrete of, respectively. New York, Ohio and Rhode Island. Also prominent are Sens. Alfonse D'Amato, Dennis DeConcini and Pete Domenici of New York, Arizona and New Mexico. There are 33 Italian-American members in the U.S. House of Representatives. And it is an Italian-American, Geraldine Ferraro, who was the first woman chosen by a major party as its candidate for Vice President of the United States. t Steven Spielberg has been called Hollywood's most authentic genius and the most commercially successful director of all time . Yet most of us who go to see his films would never recognize him .Is it because he wears a disguise to prevent kidnapping? Would you please run his photo? E.K., New Bedford, Mass.
