Diane Keaton (née Hall; born January 5, 1946) is an American actress, director, producer, photographer, real estate developer, author, and singer. One of the most popular actresses of the 1970s and 1980s, she has received various accolades, including an Academy Award, a BAFTA Award, two Golden Globe Awards, and the AFI Life Achievement Award.
Keaton began her career on stage and made her screen debut in 1970. Her first major film role was as Kay Adams-Corleone in The Godfather (1972), a role she reprised in The Godfather Part II (1974) and The Godfather Part III (1990). But the films that helped shape her early career were those with director and co-star Woody Allen, beginning with Play It Again, Sam in 1972. Her next two films with Allen, Sleeper (1973) and Love and Death (1975), established her as a comic actor. Her fourth, the romantic comedy Annie Hall (1977), won her the Academy Award for Best Actress.
To avoid being typecast as her Annie Hall persona, Keaton became an accomplished dramatic performer, starring in Looking for Mr. Goodbar (1977) and Interiors (1978), and received three more Academy Award nominations for playing feminist activist Louise Bryant in Reds (1981), a woman with leukemia in Marvin’s Room (1996), and a dramatist in Something’s Gotta Give (2003).
Keaton’s other popular films include Manhattan (1979), Shoot the Moon (1982), Mrs. Soffel (1984), Baby Boom (1987), Father of the Bride (1991), Manhattan Murder Mystery (1993), Father of the Bride Part II (1995), The First Wives Club (1996), The Other Sister (1999), The Family Stone (2005), Morning Glory (2010), Finding Dory (2016), Book Club (2018), and Poms (2019).
