Diane Keaton reveals why she never married


After the release of her memoir, Let’s Just Say It Wasn’t Pretty, Diane Keaton opened up to People magazine on why she never married and talked about some of her former lovers.

The 68-year-old actress was romantically involved with some of Hollywood’s biggest names such as Woody Allen, Al Pacino and Warren Beatty and she says her ex-boyfriends were all ”mesmerizing people.”

”I really appreciated them, are you kidding? They were absolutely mesmerizing people. Sometimes they made me feel better about myself,” Diane says.

”Warren was really good at feeding you ideas about yourself that were just, you know, not possible. That I was so talented, so…. I remember thinking he’s lying, but I’m just going to go with it.

”I remember Woody looking at me, we were sitting on a park bench, and he said, ‘I wonder if I’d think you were attractive if I didn’t know you.’ I laughed because, hello! You jerk, how dare you say that to me? But it was funny.”

The Oscar-winning actress has revealed she never got married because she was ”not practical” about it.

”I had some insane idea that I had to be ‘in love.’ Now I see what it really takes: real consideration that you’re a good team together,” she explained.

    The older I get, the more I understand why she never married. I don’t know that many people who have stayed happily married over time. Maybe marriage is too common and should be reserved for those rare relationships that can sustain the test of time.

    She learned what a good marriage was all about—-sorry it was so late in life, but she’s had a good life, a successful life, and she adopted 2 white kids.
