I Love Diane Keaton




I have always adored Diane Keaton. The first movie I ever saw her in was "Annie Hall", which earned her an Academy Award for Best Actress. As Annie, she was funny and sweet and crazy. Woody Allen has said he wrote Annie Hall based on Keaton's own unconventional family, and that just makes me love her more.

I am spending the afternoon re-reading  Ms. Keaton's new book called "Then Again". When it first came out I was so excited that I rushed through reading it, and so I will read it more slowly this time.

It's a great book, written with all the warmth and unique style that we have come to expect from this gifted actress. She also has a new movie coming out called "Darling Companion" that is not getting very good reviews, but I don't care. I am a Diane Keaton fan forever, so I can't wait to see her new movie.
My daughter-in-law once told me that I reminded her of Diane as Annie Hall. I took this as a compliment because who doesn't want to be like Diane Keaton, right? But then as I thought about, did she mean I was ditsy, scattered-brained, a little crazy?

I get along fabulously with my daughter-in-law, we are good friends, but I have never asked her about what she meant. Should I, or just keep thinking I'm just like Diane?
