In celebration of Diane Keaton’s 71st birthday, here are some of her magic movie moments
Diane Keaton turns 71 today and boy, has she still got it.
She is one of the stars of the new HBO series The Young Pope which premieres on January 15. She is also is one of the rare actresses of a certain age who continues to get lead roles in films including 2015′s Love the Coopers and 2014′s 5 Flights Up opposite Morgan Freeman.
Imagine that! She’s still funny, still sexy, as talented as ever and she doesn’t appear to have had many, if any, nips and tucks.
We got to know her in the 70s through a string of Woody Allen movies (including Oscar winning role in Annie Hall), the Godfather I and II and Looking for Mr. Goodbar. The 80s brought more big movies like her Oscar-nominated performance in Reds, the hit comedy Baby Boom and the dramas Shoot the Moon and Mrs. Soffel. In the 90s, she was in the hit comedy Father of the Bride and its sequel and the blockbuster smash The First Wives Club, an Oscar nominated performance in the drama Marvin’s Room and one of my personal faves Manhattan Murder Mystery.
Another Oscar nomination came for 2003′s Something’s Gotta Give and some of her more recent films include The Family Stone, Because I Said So, Mad Money, The Big Wedding, And So It Goes and Morning Glory.
Here is just a sampling of Keaton moments from some of those great films:
