Who is Duke’s mother Diane Keaton?
Diane Hall Keaton was born in Los Angeles, California on 5 January 1948 – her zodiac sign is Capricorn, and she holds American nationality. She’s an actress and a filmmaker, known for her roles in critically acclaimed movies, such as “Annie Hall”, “The Godfather” and “Play It Again, Sam”. She’s received numerous awards and accolades though her career, including an Academy Award and two Golden Globes.
Diane was born to Jack Hall, a real estate broker, and Dorothy Keaton, a homemaker and amateur photographer. She became interested in performing arts at an early age, particularly after her mother won a beauty pageant for homemakers.
She matriculated from Santa Ana High School in 1964, and during her time there took part in several school productions of plays, such as “A Streetcar Named Desire”. Diane then went on to study acting at Orange Coast College, but dropped out after two years, and moved to New York City to pursue acting opportunities.
She started studying acting at the renowned Neighborhood Playhouse, and briefly performed a singing act at local nightclubs. Diane made her Broadway debut in 1968, in the original production of the musical “Hair”, which spanned more than nine months, after which she landed a role in the play “Play It Again, Sam”, directed by Woody Allen, and for her performance received a Tony Award nomination for Best Featured Actress in a Play.
Diane made her film debut in the 1970 romantic comedy “Lovers and Other Strangers”, directed by Cy Howard.
Her breakthrough role came two years later, in the Oscar-winning crime drama “The Godfather”, in which she played Kay Adams, the wife of Michael Corleone (played by Al Pacino). The film received almost universal critical acclaim, became the highest-grossing movie of the year, and is today widely rated as one of the best movies ever made. Diane reprised her role as Kay in “The Godfather II” (1974) and “The Godfather III” (1990).
In the 1970s, Diane continued collaborating with the director Woody Allen, appearing in a number of his films including “Sleeper”, “Love and Death” and the film version of “Play It Again, Sam”. In 1977, she won the Oscar for Best Actress for her performance in Allen’s romantic comedy “Annie Hall”, while the film won the Oscar for Best Picture. Diane was often credited as Allen’s muse at the time, and it was revealed that her “Anne Hall” character was actually based on her; Diane and Woody were in an on-again, off-again relationship, between 1971 and 1978.
In 1978, Diane became romantically involved with the actor Warren Beatty, with whom she starred in the 1980 historical drama “Reds”, centered on the life of the journalist John Reed, who chronicled the October Revolution in Russia. The film opened to critical acclaim, and Diane’s performance was particularly praised, earning her another Oscar nomination.
Diane made her foray into the action-thriller genre with the 1984 spy film “The Little Drummer Girl”, directed by George Roy Hill, based on the eponymous novel by John le Carré, however, the film wasn’t well received by the audience, with critics claiming that Diane was miscast for the role. In the following years, she had roles in several movies written and produced by Nancy Meyers, including “Baby Boom”, “Radio Days” and “The More the Merrier”.
By the 1990’s Diane was established as one of the most popular and versatile Hollywood actresses. She shifted from playing quirky characters to more mature roles, frequently playing family matriarchs. One of her first roles of the decade was in the 1991 family comedy “Father of the Bride”, which also starred Steve Martin. Two years later, she played the leading role in the comedy “Manhattan Murder Mystery”, her first collaboration with Woody Allen since 1979, cast for the film after Mia Farrow dropped out of the project due to personal issues; Diane’s performance in the film earned her a Golden Globe nomination.
One of the most notable of Diane’s roles from the 1990’s was in the drama “Marvin’s Room”, directed by Jerry Zacks. In the movie, Diane played a woman suffering from leukemia, while Meryl Streep played the role of her estranged sister, with Leonardo DiCaprio portraying her rebellious son.
In 2003, Diane played the female lead opposite Jack Nicholson in the romantic comedy “Something’s Gotta Give”, which was her first major hit after a series of commercially unsuccessful movies in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s.
More recently, in 2016, she played her only recurring TV series role, in HBO’s political drama “The Young Pope”, created by Paolo Sorrentino, and which also starred Jude Law and Silvio Orlando.
Aside from acting, Diane has directed several films, which include “Heaven” (1987), “Unstrung Heroes” (1995) and “Hanging Up” (2000). She’s also directed music videos for “Heaven Is a Place on Earth” and “I Get Weak” by Belinda Carlisle, along with an episode of TV series’ “Twin Peaks” and “China Beach”.
She has revealed that she’s had a ‘lifelong ambition to be a singer’, but her recording artist career never took off. Diane had more success with her other passion, photography, with her works being showcased in several arts exhibitions, as well as in “Rolling Stone” magazine.
Diane is 73 years old, still widely recognized for her eccentric personality and fashion style. She has long blonde hair and brown eyes, is 5ft 8ins (1.73m) tall, and weighs around 143lbs (65kgs).
