Musings from Diane Keaton’s upcoming memoir, in which she confronts Hollywood’s (and perhaps her own) preoccupation with youth and beauty.
“Diana Vreeland was not born with less. She was born with more — more ugliness than most women in the world of fashion and beauty could bear. The black-as-Grecian-Formula hair slicked behind her ears and the cigarette dangling from her cherry-red lips were mere background material for the schnozzola sitting stage center in the wreckage of a face that defied compliance.”
Q: What are you most proud of in your career?
A: Because of Woody, I have had the opportunity to have a career I otherwise would not have had at all. (She starred in eight of his films.) That gave me all these other opportunities to employ myself and spend my time with my hobbies.
Q: What are your hobbies?
A: I really enjoy editing books. I have a lot of them now. I write forewords to other people’s books, and I love visual books. I wrote another book, “Let’s Just Say It Wasn’t Pretty,” (Random House, available in April) which is based on my thoughts about beauty and what it is to be a woman. I’ve had the opportunity to do all the things I’ve wanted to do. To buy and sell homes, which I love. To be part of the preservation society for saving great architecture, particularly residential. All these things would have never ever happened without the opportunity to work with Woody. He gave me that.

Last week, we scooped that Woody Allen would not attend the 71st annual Golden Globe Awards on January 12 where he will be the recipient of the 2014 Cecil B. DeMille Award. Now we can reveal that his longtime friend and muse Diane Keaton will accept the award on his behalf. I have learned that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association made the decision to honor Allen with the knowledge that the Oscar- and Golden Globe-winning filmmaker would not attend. Keaton was then approached about receiving the award on his behalf. Keaton and Allen met in 1968 when she auditioned and was cast in his Broadway play, Play It Again, Sam. They were a couple for 5 years and are still very good friends today. Keaton appeared in eight Allen films spanning two decades, winning an Oscar and Golden Globe for 1976?s Annie Hall.
There’s a new photo out of Diane from the HBO pilot she did “Tilda”.

Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy will voice the parents of the dim-witted fish Dory in Disney/Pixar’s “Finding Nemo” sequel “Finding Dory,” the studio announced Friday at its D23 Expo in Anaheim.
Ty Burrell will play a beluga whale in the 2015 animated feature, which brings back “Nemo” voice actors Albert Brooks and Ellen DeGeneres.
The first film, released in 2003, remains one of the most successful and beloved animated movies of all-time. It grossed $922 million at the global box office and won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.
DeGeneres lobbied Pixar to make a second film, and Pixar announced in April it would make a sequel.
Pixar chief John Lasseter told the crowd on Friday that the studio has begun production on the film, and introduced director Andrew Stanton. After disclosing the addition of Levy, Burrell and Keaton, he said they needed to keep the rest a secret but assured fans that Bill Hader, who had already taken the stage three times, would not be voicing a character.
