Could Diane Keaton and Richard Gere Have Been One of Hollywood’s Power Couples? If the actress had her way years ago, the answer is yes. Keaton said Additional that when she and Gere filmed 1977’s Looking for Mr. Goodbarshe hoped to be more than co-stars.
“I was in love with him, but he didn’t feel anything for me at all,” Keaton laughed. “He would care about me in the movie… but he didn’t want to!”
Obviously Keaton isn’t at in her feelings about the whole thing. She and Gere share the screen together again in the new romantic comedy Maybe. The Oscar-winning actress said Gere is “amazing”.
Keaton’s love life was a topic when the reporter asked how long it has been since she went on a date.
“Dates are…let’s [say] 15 years,” the Annie Hall star replied. “They probably just thought, ‘Enough is enough…she’s too weird.’ I’m a little weird, but I’m fine.”
Fifteen years is better than the number she threw away in 2019, speculating it was 35 years since she dated someone.
“One day someone will marry me,” Keaton joked. “Maybe one of these nice men dealing with me today.”
The iconic actress really isn’t too upset about it. Earlier this month, she celebrated her 77th birthday with a tribute to herself.
“HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE LOVE OF MY LIFE…ME!” she declared.
Keaton, who has dated stars like Al Pacino, Jack Nicholson, and Warren Beatty, previously opened up about her decision not to get married.
“I didn’t want to give up my independence,” Keaton said in 2021.
“By the way, no one has ever proposed to me, so that could be a good answer,” she said, adding, “I should have started with that and called it a day.”
