Diane Keaton and Warren Beatty


In 1978 actor and director Warren Beatty and actress Diane Keaton fell in love. Upon reflecting on her relationship with Warren Beatty, Diane Keaton said, “I remember the first time I ever saw Warren. I must have been about 26– It was at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. They used to have a bookstore there, and I was inside, and I looked out and saw him in the lobby. I thought, My god, he’s so beautiful. It was like there was a light. He looked at me for a second, and then [his eyes] passed me by. I thought, I’ll never know him. He’ll never be somebody in my life.”  Keaton regards Beatty as one of the great loves of her life.
