Warren told her she was so talented she could do anything — become a director, a politician, the most revered actress on the globe. Walking her to the plane, he got on and then held her hand until they landed.
Then he kissed her and flew straight back to LA. On Valentine's Day, he bought her a sauna for one bathroom in her new apartment and a steam room for the other. Who could resist such a seductive onslaught? Then Again is published today by Fourth Estate. And I kept falling for a long time,' she admits. Instinctively, though, she knew she was probably out of her depth.
The smart friends he introduced her to — such as Jackie Kennedy, Washington Post publisher Katharine Graham and the actress Anjelica Huston — made her feel stupid, and Warren himself seemed too much of a Hollywood prince to be interested in her for long. The romance faded gradually, she says, until one day he simply wasn't there.
As the Eighties dawned, she was alone and starting to falter. Her last great affair with an 'unattainable great' started inafter she bumped into Al Pacino in a film-editing suite.
Yet again, she'd been nursing a crush — in this case for the 15 years since she'd starred with him in The Godfather, when they were both involved with other people. Al Pacino was, she says, consumed by two things: And although they soon embarked on an affair, she suspected he viewed her more as someone he could talk to than as a lover. I wanted him to love me.

Poor me — I never stopped insisting,' she says. When they returned to the U. Her father was diagnosed with a brain tumour, and died five months later. Two months after her father's death, she was sitting in a therapist's office with Al when he announced that he'd never had any intention of marrying her and wanted to split for good. She watched him walk away without a backward glance.
Keaton and Allen were together for a decade before splitting up in the late s after building a body of work including the classics Sleeper, Love And Death, Annie Hall and Manhattan Afterward, she tortured herself with the thought that she hadn't been pretty enough for him.
The truth is I never had it, but that isn't the point. Diane has kept them all. Happiness appeared to elude her until the age of 50, when she adopted a new-born baby girl — whom she named Dexter. Lest you imagine that Diane was alone and friendless, Dexter shortly afterwards came into possession of one of the most exclusive baby wardrobes ever assembled — 13 hats given to her by Kate Capshaw Mrs Steven Spielberga flowery dress from Woody Allen, a carrot hat from Bette Midler, a nappy bag from Steve Martin and four boxes of clothes and other goodies from Meryl Streep.
Five years later, Diane adopted Duke, a baby boy. She feels now that after 'a lifetime of avoiding intimacy', she has at last embraced it by becoming a mum.
It took me 50 years to find motherhood and unconditional love. Offered the part of a divorced playwright in a romantic comedy, she found herself starring alongside Jack Nicholson in Something's Gotta Give. That kiss, she admits, 'was a reigniting reminder of something lost that had suddenly been found'. Over the course of an hour I get the full Diane — the exquisite timing, the dramatic pause, the droll shrug, the sotto voce, the under-the-eyelashes withering glance. The sense that actually her mind is somewhere else completely, probably buried deep in a photography book in a store in Greenwich Village.
Woody said, 'Just dress like you do,' it was the gift of all time. The look is finished with more than half a dozen large silver crucifixes that she's picked up at "the swap-meet" flea market over the years. Like I said, the full Diane.
Diane Keaton: 'I’ve played around with all different kinds of men'
As she pulls answers out of the air, switches from high energy to reverie, clinks her bracelets and fidgets with her black onyx rings, you just want to sit right there and watch. Which is presumably why she's had a near halfcentury Hollywood career playing the woman it's impossible not to fall for. Getty Images She's played at being in love at every age from something onwards on the big screen. It's the perfect relationship. I don't have to have the relationship but we tell these stories and then they leave.
I've got to play around with all different kinds of men. It's a love story that traverses the ground between Notting Hill and Something's Gotta Give, with Diane's widow Emily feeling down in the dumps and past her prime when she encounters Brendan's Donald Horner, an Irish recluse who has been squatting for 17 years in a Hampstead Heath shack and is about to be evicted.Who'd You Rather with Diane Keaton on Ellen Show
In him, Emily sees the opportunity to give her heart to both a cause and another person. And you're lying to everyone and you're not really friends with Lesley Manville…" Manville plays Fiona, Emily's neighbour and No.
Well, I mean he should be," says Keaton wryly. Getty Images The film is based on the true story of Harry Hallowes, a man who did indeed set up home on the heath, although the real shack was not quite so Pinterest-friendly as the tumbling-rose, shabby-chic idyll, filled with books and candles in wine bottles, the film conjures up. But how else to lure the cultured, enviably clothed Miss Emily, as Donald calls her in a strange feudal throwback?
Emily and Donald embody the old-fashioned essence of romantic comedy — opposites. It's a concept that Diane has always understood. They shake you up and that always is attractive.

Keaton's performance also won the Academy Award for Best Actress. It's hard to play ditzy. The genius of Annie is that despite her loopy backhand, awful driving, and nervous tics, she's also a complicated, intelligent woman.

Keaton became interested in the role after seeing it as a "psychological case history. A male actor can fly a plane, fight a war, shoot a badman, pull off a sting, impersonate a big cheese in business or politics. Men are presumed to be interesting. A female can play a wife, play a whore, get pregnant, lose her baby, and, um, let's see Women are presumed to be dull.
Now a determined trend spotter can point to a handful of new films whose makers think that women can bear the dramatic weight of a production alone, or virtually so.

It's the best work she has done to date. I had somehow gotten into the habit of expecting her to be a touchy New Yorker, sweet, scared, and intellectual. Here, she is just what she needs to be:
