Diane Keaton Net Worth $32 Million
Diane Keaton was educated at Santa Ana High School, and then in 1963 she studied at Santa Ana College, Orange Coast College and Neighbourhood Playhouse, but dropped out to pursue the career of an actress. In 1970, she debuted on the big screen in the comedy film “Lovers and Other Strangers” directed by Cy Howard. Soon, she was noticed by film critics, producers and directors. She soon received her first nominations for awards, for New York Film Critics Circle and Golden Globe as the Best Actress for her lead role in the drama film directed by Richard Brooks “Looking for Mr. Goodbar” (1977). This was followed by numerous awards for her role of Annie Hall in the same titled romantic comedy directed by Woody Allen (1977). The film as well as the lead actress received widespread critical acclaim as well as success at the box office. Keaton was nominated for seven awards, all of which she won, including such awards as Academy, BAFTA, Golden Globe, New York Film Critics Circle Award and others. That was her most successful role landed so far, and was reflected in the growth of her net worth.
However, it is important to mention that Keaton has starred in a number of feature films that brought her nominations as well as the awards. These were the comedy drama film “Manhattan” (1979) directed by Woody Allen, epic film “Reds” (1981) directed, produced and co-written by Warren Beatty, drama films “Shoot the Moon” (1982) directed by Alan Parker and “Mrs. Soffel” (1984) directed Gillian Armstrong, and drama film “Marvin’s Room” (1996) directed by Jerry Zaks. She was very successful in many comedy films too, including “Baby Boom” (1987) directed by Charles Shyer, “Manhattan Murder Mystery” (1993) starring and directed by Woody Allen, “The First Wives Club” (1996) directed by Hugh Wilson, “Something’s Gotta Give” (2003) directed, produced and written by Nancy Meyers and “The Family Stone” (2005) directed and written by Thomas Bezucha, which have also brought her various nominations and awards, as well as adding considerably to her net worth.
Diane Keaton has been noted for her directorial work on “Hanging Up” (2000), the comedy drama film which won Modern Master Award in Santa Barbara International Film Festival 2001. This also increased Diane Keaton’s net worth too. However, mistakes are made even by the best, and in 2008, Diane was nominated for the Razzie Award as the Worst actress for her role in the romantic comedy film “Because I Said So” (2007) directed by Michael Lehmann.
Concerning the personal life of Diane Keaton, she has been in long term relationships with a film director Woody Allen, actor Warren Beatty and actor Al Pacino, although she has never been married. Being 55 years old, she decided to become a mother and adopted two children.

She wanted to direct a remake of the film The Blue Angel (1930) (aka "The Blue Angel") with Madonna in the lead but the project was canceled.
Woody Allen said of her, "In real life, Keaton believes in God. But she also believes that the radio works because there are tiny people inside it."

She is not related to Michael Keaton, as her birth name is Diane Hall. She changed her last name to her mother's maiden name as a result of a Diane Hall already being in the Actors Guild.

Don't give up on yourself. So you make a mistake here and there; you do too much or you do too little. Just have fun. Smile. And keep putting on lipstick.
When I was little, we'd get in the station wagon and go all over California. Childhood memories can really dominate your life.
I would audition for the talent show when I was in junior high school, and I was going to sing All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth. But it was my mother's idea that I black out my teeth at the tryout, and that of course secured my position on the list of people who would be in the talent show.
When I first got to know Woody and I was going out with him, I noticed that people never wanted to hear anything that I had to say at all. They just wanted to be in the shadow of his light and I remember really having a hard time with that.
The idea of speaking your thoughts out loud is so important. It's been downplayed recently because now we have medication to help people in situations. But I think it's important to talk your thoughts out loud, because you don't really own them until you do that.
[Regarding getting drug shots before each performance of the 1968 rock musical, "Hair"] At the time it was astonishing to have a job. It was odd. Before the show opened we got a shot by a doctor Bishop. A vitamin shot, only it was not vitamins. It was like methamphetamines. You were flying. A lot of people got addicted.
I just have to keep going back to the core and think that we're all afraid of it and when we're afraid of it, you run to something much easier, something that looks like candy.
I'm limited, so, I kind of know where I fit as an actress. I kind of get it now, finally, after all of these years of trying to be a dramatic actress. I kind of think that'd I'd like to continue dealing with these things in a funny, lighter vein, but also truthful and honest.
When I was younger I had these enormous vanities about what I expected from myself. I'm glad to have a comfortable and fascinating life, but now I see it for what it is, so I can be braver and more spontaneous and say to myself, "Oh, screw it, just go out there and do it."
I had a career and I came to motherhood late and am not married and have never had such a trusting relationship with a man - and trust is where the real power of love comes from.
It's kind of true, you do disappear off the planet if you are a middle-aged woman, but that has some advantages as well. Because too much of my life was spent waiting to be seen. Hoping to be seen, hoping to be picked. Once you realize that you aren't looked at that way any more, other things start to happen and you have to depend on other things to get by.
I think about dying every single day. I've lost lots of friends, and they die in the most bizarre ways. It's like, "That can't possibly be! How could that have happened?" And all I can think is, "That could have been me."
I build a wall around myself. I'm hard to get to know. Any trait you have, it gets worse as you go along.
Of course I recognized myself in the roles [Woody Allen] wrote. I mean, in Annie Hall (1977) particularly. I was this sort of novice who had lots of feelings but didn't know how to express herself, and I see that in Annie. I think Woody used a kind of essential quality that he found in me at that time, and I'm glad he did because it worked really well in the movie.
I find the same thing sexy in a man now as I always have: humor. I love it when they are funny. It's to die for.
[on her nude scene in Something's Gotta Give (2003)] At this point, does it really matter? Nobody is looking at me the way I once imagined people would look at me, like with deviant thoughts. I think they just go, "Huh. There it is. Intact."
I think that people who are famous tend to be underdeveloped in their humanity skills.
