Interviews

Diane Keaton on Her Dream Home, Inspiring Women, and Pinterest Addiction

"Certainly things have changed," Diane Keaton says. "They always do."

Taking in what she describes as a sunny California morning looking out on the patio of her current Los Angeles home, Keaton's considering what's happened in her life since publishing 2014's Let's Just Say It Wasn't Pretty. In it, her second memoir, the Academy Award-winning actress and perennial style icon writes about her lifelong search for and appreciation of beauty.

She writes about discovering the difference between pretty and beautiful as a kid and considering where she fit in on that scale. A pretty dress or smile were perfectly fine, but beauty? Another level entirely.
