LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: In a recent interview with AARP: The Magazine, actress Diane Keaton revealed that she has no plans to have a romantic relationship again. Keaton said, "I don't date. Highly unlikely. I don't remember anyone calling me, going, 'This is So-and-So, I'd like to take you out.' They don't happen. Of course not." Although Keaton has been linked to several high-profile figures such as Woody Allen, Warren Beatty, and Al Pacino in the past, she has never tied the knot.

Keaton, who is 77 years old, is a proud mother of two children, Dexter and Duke, whom she adopted in her 50s. When asked about her children, Keaton said, "They're great. They're doing good." In addition to being a devoted mother, Keaton has also found companionship with her beloved dog Reggie. Diane said, "A friend of mine gave her to me. I didn't even ask for her. He came to me and said, 'I think you need this dog.' I was like, 'OK, I guess?' Of course, now I just love her," as she expressed her affection for her pet.

'No dates. No mwah-mwah'

In an interview with Extra earlier this year, Keaton revealed that she hasn't been on a date in 15 years. "They probably just thought, 'Enough's enough … she's too weird.' I'm kind of odd, but I'm doing fine. Someday, someone will marry me," she joked. She even suggested it could be one of the men at the press event for her new romantic comedy 'Maybe I Do,' which also stars Richard Gere, Susan Sarandon, and Emma Roberts.


Keaton has been candid about her dating life in the past. In a 2019 interview with InStyle, she revealed that she hadn’t been on a date in 15 years. "I have a lot of male friends. I have a lot of friends, but no dates. No mwah-mwah," she said. She also told People back in 2019 that she doesn't consider herself marriage material. "I think that I’m strange. I don’t think it would have been a good idea for me to get married, and I’m really glad I didn’t, and I’m sure they’re happy about it, too."

Keaton's dating history

Despite being involved with some of Hollywood's most notable men, Keaton has never settled down in her many years in the industry. Keaton had revealed some of the highlights of her romantic history, including a secret relationship with Steve Jobs. Keaton's best-known relationship was with actor Al Pacino with whom she starred in 'The Godfather', but they separated after several years. She also had romances with Woody Allen and Warren Beatty, among others, but none of them lasted. Rumors about a relationship with Edward Ruscha in 1977 were never confirmed and rumors about a romance with Keanu Reeves in 2005 proved to be unfounded. Keaton said that she hasn't been on a date in over 30 years and that she only has male friends with whom she has no romantic or intimate involvement.
