Diane Keaton released a memoire, entitled, Then Again.Â In the book, she revealed so many parts of her life like her battle to bulimia, adopting children, and the men in her life.
While she was just starting as an actress, she was asked to lose 10 lbs. on a role in the original Broadway production of Hair in 1968.
It was the reason why she started to gorge herself in huge stubs of ice cream before making herself sick.
At that time, she did not know it was called bulimia, and described it as a ‘horrible problem’ and ‘ugly and awful.’
She took psychotherapy to help her with bulimia, and later on decided to stop bingeing.
Diane Keaton also feels that she is not pretty enough, even after dating Hollywood stars like Al Pacino, Warren Beatty and Woody Allen.
She said, “I was friendly looking, no Candy Bergen, The smile, maybe, was all I had.”
In the book, she talked about having a date once with Steve Jobs. She said she got bored with him when he started to talk about computers and his work.
She said, “I have no interest. Do you believe it? That was the end of that.”
She also described Beatty as one of his major loves, saying, “he is romantic and very kind.”
Keaton also dated Al Pacino. She described the actor as gorgeous.
She said that she was mad at him and worked hard for the relationship. The reason for their break up is that she gave him a marriage ultimatum which failed.
Diane said, “I went about it not in a perfect way.”
Keaton won an Academy Award and Golden GlobeÂ Award for her role as Annie Hall in 1977. It was directed by Woody Allen on which they had a relationship.
She described Woody as beautiful and she loved his body.
When she was 50 years old, she adopted daughter Dexter, now 15 and Duke, 10 in 2001 – the year that she disclosed she was giving up on romance and she is happy being single.
She described motherhood brings her more happiness than any other relationship.
She revealed, “I’m sorry, but it’s better than any fantasies about love.. it is love. That’s the best thing.”
Keaton was also asked on why she resisted on plastic surgery. She said, “No, it’s too late. If you start at 65. you’d have a real weird face.”
Her memoire, Then Again, will be on sale this Tuesday.
