Diane Keaton, 66, chats with AARP The Magazine

“Let me tell you the best part about getting older,” 66-year-old Hollywood (and Manhattan) legend Diane Keaton says.

Wait, there’s a good part about getting old?

“The best part is that I’m still here and, because the end is in sight, I treasure it all more. That’s why I don’t worry about crying in a scene anymore. Now it comes easily. I know the emotion’s all there,” Keaton tells AARP The Magazine

Keaton’s is a carpe diem gospel.

“You have to live life that way, you know? Take risks. Do things you can’t imagine,” she says. “’Cause hey, why not, right?”

Keaton reminds us again why we love hear so she’s asked how much cosmetic surgery she’s had.

“I haven’t had it,” she says. “But never say never. Because when you do, you are definitely going to go there. I said I would never have intercourse before I was married, and I did. I said I would never go to a psychiatrist, and I spent much of my life in psychoanalysis. I’ve done all kinds of things I said I wouldn’t do and, of course, now I’m glad. Thrilled.”

Only Keaton would string together facelifts, sexual intercourse and Freud in one breath.

The actor, who spent much of the 1970’s as Woody Allen’s on-and-of-screen muse, says she’s dying to play a role which would let her go all the way to the edge.

“A really out-there role where I let it all hang out,” she says. “Get totally enraged. Go to an extreme. I have not really had that opportunity, and I hope it will happen.”

See Keaton and Allen ham it up in 1973's 'Sleeper'.
