Diane Keaton

2014 Speaker

Diane Keaton is the New York Times best-selling author of “Then Again,” which was named one of the ten best books of the year by Janet Maslin of The New York Times, People and Vogue. She has starred in some of the most memorable movies of the past 40 years, including the “Godfather“ trilogy, “Annie Hall,” “Manhattan,” “Reds,” “Baby Boom,” “The First Wives Club” and “Something’s Gotta Give.” Her many awards include the Golden Globe and the Academy Award.

In her newest book, “Let’s Just Say It Wasn’t Pretty,” Keaton takes us further into a life that is now more mom than movie star. Offering a candid look at beauty and aging, she shares with us the funny and not-so-funny moments of always staying true to yourself. From the humiliation of a makeup artist who tells her she needs to get her eyes fixed, to the awkwardness of shopping with her teenage daughter at Victoria’s Secret. Her self-knowing commentary on the bold personal choices she’s made through the years (the wide-brimmed hats, outrageous shoes and all-weather turtlenecks), and her experiences with the many beautiful men in her life (including Warren Beatty, Jack Nicholson, Al Pacino and Sam Shepard) are as fiercely original as Keaton herself. “Let Just Say It Wasn’t Pretty” will be released April, 2015, by Random House Hardcover. @Diane_Keaton
