Diane Keaton is Definitely a Legend

Jul 26, 2019 | Uncategorized

Actress Diane Keaton was recently profiled in the August issue of InStyle, for an article titled Diane Keaton Doesn’t Believe She’s a Legend, in which the iconic actress denies being an icon. Now, anyone familiar with her prolific and impressive filmography knows that’s simply not true.

Known for wearing many literal hats, Ms. Keaton is also known for being a director, producer, photographer, real estate developer, author, and singer. And yet:

How do you live with being called an icon? 
Well, this word “icon” is new to me. No one has ever called me an icon. I guess with time you call people an icon because they’ve been around for a long time. That’s an icon for you.

You have this incredible body of work that people admire. 
Really? I’m not aware of that.

And while she may be reserved about her place in history as a remarkable talent, both on-screen and off, she has certainly never been reserved when it comes to fashion choices…

You styled yourself for this shoot. Is it empowering to have a certain look that you’ve been able to cultivate? 
I don’t think of it as empowering.

Protective then, maybe? 
Yes, it’s very protective. It hides a multitude of sins. Flaws, anxiety — things like that. I would not feel comfortable in a short skirt or something cut off with my arms hanging out there. And I’ve always liked hats. They just frame a head. But, of course, nobody really thinks they’re as great as I do.
