Diane Keaton Interview — AARP Magazine

Diane Keaton is one of my favorite actresses in Hollywood. She’s a fearless legend who never compromised her individuality for the Hollywood bigwigs. Enjoy quotes from her AARP interview below.

On Aging:

“Let me tell you the best part about getting older. The best part is that I’m still here and, because the end is in sight, I treasure it all more. That’s why I don’t worry about crying in a scene anymore. Now it comes easily. I know the emotion’s all there.”

“You have to live life that way, you know? Take risks. Do things you can’t imagine. ’Cause hey, why not, right?”

On the Possibility of Plastic Surgery:

“I haven’t had it, but never say never. Because when you do, you are definitely going to go there. I said I would never have intercourse before I was married, and I did. I said I would never go to a psychiatrist, and I spent much of my life in psychoanalysis. I’ve done all kinds of things I said I wouldn’t do and, of course, now I’m glad. Thrilled.”

On Her Battle with Bulimia:

“With bulimia, I never expected sympathy or for people to understand. What I cared about was the secret I kept. It felt like a burden. I never told my mother.”

“It’s amazing how the dark secrets inside us don’t matter much to the outside world.”

On Her Dream Role:

“A really out-there role where I let it all hang out. Get totally enraged. Go to an extreme. I have not really had that opportunity, and I hope it will happen.”
