Diane, 75, has been an actress for over 50 years, and she has no intention of slowing down any time soon.
In fact, Diane Keaton wants to do more than ever, she says, “I never understood the idea that you’re supposed to mellow as you get older. Slowing down isn’t something I relate to at all. The goal is to continue in good and bad, all of it.”
The actress has never been one to conform to stereotypes and refuses to do what society expects, she says, “We can grow gracefully, or gorgeously. I pick both.” And one look at her super popular Instagram account shows she has indeed chosen both.
Diane Keaton became a mother in her 50s after adopting two children, daughter Dexter and son Duke. On her to decision to become a mum she reflects, “Motherhood has completely changed me. It’s just about the most completely humbling experience that I’ve ever had.”
Check out some of Diane Keaton’s best quotes:
“A sense of freedom is something that, happily, comes with age and life experience.”
“Memories are simply moments that refuse to be ordinary”
“I’ve always loved independent women, outspoken women, eccentric women, funny women, flawed women. When someone says about a woman, ‘I’m sorry, that’s just wrong,’ I tend to think she must be doing something right.”
“Don’t give up on yourself. So you make a mistake here and there, you do too much or too little. Just have fun. Smile. And keep putting on your lipstick.”
“Humor helps us get through life with a modicum of grace. It offers one of the few benign ways of coping with the absurdity of it all.”
“Even though all these obstacles keep coming at you, you just have to keep going through them. Because it’s worth it to do something in your life, as opposed to fantasising about doing something.”
