Diane Keaton (born January 5, 1946) is an American film actress, director and producer. Keaton began her career on stage, and made her screen debut in 1970.
Diane Keaton's first major film role was as Kay Adams-Corleone in The
Godfather (1972), but the films that shaped 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 actress.
Her fourth, Annie Hall (1977), won her the Academy Award for Best Actress.
Diane subsequently expanded her range to avoid becoming typecast as her Annie Hall persona. She became an accomplished dramatic actress, starting in Looking for Mr. Goodbar (1977) and received Academy Award nominations for Reds (1981) and Marvin's Room (1996). Some of her popular later films include Father of the Bride (1991), The First Wives Club (1996), and Something's Gotta Give (2003). Films Diane has been in have earned a cumulative gross of over USD$1.1 billion in North America.
In addition to acting, Diane Keaton is also a photographer, real estate
developer, and occasional singer.
