“Diane Keaton Collects Homes”
Charmer Diane Keaton, in her trademark suits and turtlenecks, is most well known as an Oscar-winning actress in films that are today’s classics. From her first appearance in “The Godfather” to her Oscar-winning performance in “Annie Hall” and a string of other great films chalking up $1.1 billion in box office sales, Keaton also found time to date both Warren Beatty and Al Pacino.
