‘Is he the love of my life?’ Diane Keaton asks herself reflectively as she pours herself a cup of green tea and gazes out at the Pacific Ocean.
Keaton is as famous for her long-term relationships with three Hollywood legends – Woody Allen, Warren Beatty and Al Pacino – as she is for her acting skills, which are considerable… .
Within minutes, she is talking about Pacino, with whom she fell deeply in love when they starred together in The Godfather and its two sequels.
‘I was really very taken with Al from the very beginning. Our relationship was absolutely wonderful in some ways, but is he the love of my life?
'No, not really, because he wasn’t the love “of my life”… He was the love of that time of my life. Each man had a different decade.
Woody was my twenties, Warren was my thirties and Al was borderline: late thirties/early forties.’ She adds a little wistfully: ‘I never see Al now.’
