By Pam Nochlin

Diane Keaton talked about her book, "Let's Just Say It Wasn't Pretty," at the 92nd St. Y

On aging

  • Old is Gold

  • I hope I have the courage to go out making bold mistakes

  • I intend to deepen my laugh lines

  • I tell myself to “be grateful for what you have- you big jerk!”

On fashion

  • I’ve stolen fashion from all places and people such as Katherine Hepburn

On characters she’s played

  • I liked them all because they were flawed

On acting

  • I’m always grateful when I’m hired

  • Women know a lot about emotional intelligence

  • Still a lot of men I haven’t kissed yet like Clint Eastwood and Robert Redford

On Jack Nicolson

  • Went from crush to friend

  • His is the best face I’ve ever seen

On Woody

  • He told me I had the kind of beauty that requires a bee keeper’s hat

  • He gave me the future I had

On Warren Beatty

  • He was beautiful and what we shared was beautiful


  • Grand Central terminal has never failed to stun me

  • I miss the energy of an island that houses 8+ million people on 2 miles
