Who Is Diane Keaton, How Old Is She?

Diane’s first big win came along after her unrivalled display in this Broadway creation by Allen – she got a Tony Award for it. In 1970, she made her debut in the film industry with “Lovers and Other Strangers”. Since her first business with Allen, she received many invitations from him to take parts in most of his films. This business engagement proved favourable to both parties as Diane won an Oscar and the British Award for Best Actress after her unbeatable performance in “Annie Hall”, written by Allen. Allen got his own breakthrough as he clinched the Director’s Award hosted by the DGA.
