When she gave her loopy, off-kilter tribute to Woody Allen at the Golden Globes recently (and sang a snippet of the Girl Scouts anthem to boot), people had one of two reactions to Diane Keaton: They thought it was a head-smacking WTF moment, or they remembered just why they loved Keaton. The Academy Award-winning actor and lover of men’s hats and ties will speak in conversation on her life and career and take audience questions as part of the Brilliant Lecture series.
The 68-year-old’s screen credits run an amazing gamut of American cinema, from The Godfather series, Reds and Annie Hall (which earned her a Best Actress Oscar) to more recent fare like Father of the Bride and Something’s Gotta Give with Jack Nicholson. She also recently published a memoir, Then Again. The star of more than 50 movies (eight of them with Allen, her mentor and ex-boyfriend), Keaton adds two more to her lengthy filmography this year: And So It Goes, a Rob Reiner project with Michael Douglas, and the working-titled Life Itself.
