Questions for Diane Keaton

* How do you keep looking so good? There is a certain vibrancy about you.

* What are your passions, the interests that have kept you going over the decades?

* I can remember you in “Annie Hall” back in 1977. I was 27 then and loved the free spirit you represented in that film. As you reflect on the various roles you’ve played over 30+ years in film and on stage, would you comment on how you see U.S. society has changed re women?

These are the questions I would ask Diane Keaton. She has always been one of my favorite actresses. There is something about her that has always caught my attention. I don’t even mind watching the commercials I see her in from time to time!

Is it her smile, those cute granny glasses, her hair, her joie de vivre? The best word I have come up with is VIBRANCY. I know there’s a bond I feel because I literally grew up with her in film, beginning with the whimsical Woody Allen film “Annie Hall.” I’m sure she must be sick of being identified with a persona decades old but I will always remember her this way. I mean, the woman started a new fashion trend, okaying women wearing ties and dressing like men, i.e., androgynously!
