"As someone who was around for a few of those — those guys always wanted one more take," Nancy Meyers commented on the actress' post.
Diane Keaton has not dated for 15 years now but that did not stop her from celebrating Valentine's Day. The Annie Hall actress, 77, shared a video montage on Instagram on Valentine's Day that featured her kissing scenes from many of her films, reported PEOPLE. The video included clips of her kissing Jack Nicholson and Keanu Reeves from Something's Gotta Give, Michael Douglas in And So It Goes, and Sam Shepard in Baby Boom, among others.
Outkast's 2003 song Happy Valentine's Day provided the perfect background soundtrack for the cheeky post. The actress joked in the caption, "Happy Valentine's Day to all the men who were paid to kiss me."
Many of Keaton's Hollywood friends commented on the post, including filmmaker Nancy Meyers. "Hilarious but as someone who was around for a few of those - those guys always wanted one more take. ❤️," wrote Meyers, 73, who directed Something's Gotta Give and personally witnessed Keaton's kisses with Nicholson, 85, and Reeves, 58. "Who was the best?" Debra Messing asked in the comments, sparking a debate in the comments section. Melanie Griffin commented with four emoji hearts, while Alison Brie wrote, "Amen!!!"
In reel life, Keaton is clearly rom-com royalty, but in her real life, romance isn't exactly a huge priority. During a recent interview with Extra promoting her new romantic comedy Maybe I Do, the Oscar-winning actress was asked about her dating life and she said, "Let's [say] 15 years," said Keaton. "They probably just thought, 'Enough's enough … she's too weird.' I'm kind of odd, but I'm doing fine," she added.
"Someday, someone will marry me," she went on, joking, "Maybe one of these nice men today that have to deal with me today." In a 2019 interview with PEOPLE, Keaton also discussed being single, “I’m 73 and I think I’m the only one in my generation and maybe before who has been a single woman all her life.” She added, "[I’m not sad] because I think that I needed more of a maternal aspect.” She continued, “I don’t think it would have been a good idea for me to have married, and I’m really glad I didn’t, and I’m sure they’re happy about it, too.”
The actress insisted that there was “something missing in me,” she said. Keaton added she thinks, she’s lacking the “nurturing” quality a husband would require. “I’m an oddball." She continued, “I remember one day in high school, this guy came up to me and said, ‘One day you’re going to make a good wife.' And I thought, 'I don’t want to be a wife. No'."
She added at the time, “When I was young, I was looking to be loved by these extraordinary people." She further said, “I think I should not have been so seduced by talent. When you’re both doing the same job, it’s not so great. I should have found just a nice human being, kind of a family guy.”
As of now, Keaton has embraced being single and is celebrating it.
