Diane Keaton

American film actress Diane Keaton (Born Diane Hall), began
her career on stage and got her first major role in the Broadway rock musical
"Hair" as understudy to the lead. Keaton made her film debut in the 1972
screen adaptation of Woody Allen’s Broadway play "Play It Again, Sam".
That same year Keaton was cast in her first major film role as Kay
Adams-Corleone in the Oscar-winning movie “The Godfather”. Keaton established
herself as a comic actor in her next two films “Sleeper” (1973) and “Love and
Death” (1975).

In 1977, Keaton veered away from her comedic image to appear
in the remarkable “Looking for Mr. Goodbar”, which won her a Golden Globe
nomination. It was that same year that she appeared in the title role of “Annie
Hall”, which many consider to be her best performance. The following year Keaton
was awarded the Oscar for best actress in a leading role, as well as the British
Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Film Award.

In the early 1990’s Keaton began to play more mature roles,
though she reprised the role of Kay Adams-Corleone in the third
"Godfather" epic, The Godfather: Part III (1990). She appeared in the
well-liked  “Father of the Bride” (1991)
and “Father of the Bride Part II” (1995) as “Nina Banks” the wife of “George
Banks” played by Steve Martin. Some of her popular later films include: The
First Wives Club (1996), Something's Gotta Give (2003) and The Family Stone

In addition to acting, she is also a director, producer, screenwriter,
photographer, real estate developer, and occasional singer. Her first record
was an original cast recording of Hair, in 1971. In 1977, she began recording
tracks for a solo album, but the finished product was never seen. In 1995 she
received high marks for Unstrung Heroes (1995), her first major feature as a

Keaton was romantically involved with several other
celebrities such as Warren Beatty, Al Pacino and her most famous romance - Woody
Allen. In 2001 Keaton publicly announced that she was giving up on pursuing
romance and later adopted two children, a daughter, Dexter (adopted 1996), and
a son, Duke (adopted 2001).
