Diane Keaton to Accept Woody Allen's Honorary Golden Globe

Earlier this year, the Hollywood Foreign Press announced that Woody Allen will be the recipient of the 2014 Cecil B. DeMille Award at this year's Golden Globes, and since Woody Allen notoriously never attends awards shows and doesn't care for the west coast, it was safe to assume he wouldn't be there to accept the prize. Now, EW reports that Allen's frequent collaborator Diane Keaton will be accepting the award on his behalf at the ceremony, which is set for January 12th. Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will be hosting the Golden Globes, so hopefully, they can rope Diane Keaton into a funny bit.

Diane Keaton Reminisces About Woody Allen's "Great Body"

Did you know that underneath that tweed jacket and those layers of barely contained existential despair, Woody Allen had a torso chiseled from marble? Okay, well, probably not, but Diane Keaton's memoir Then Again kind of implies that. Writes the Annie Hall star, "He had a great body. I was in love with him before I knew him.

Diane Keaton Tries to Become Stephen Colbert's Sidekick; Avoids Questions

As a star of many classic romantic comedies, Diane Keaton is an expert at will-they-won't-they. In this case, it was a question of will they or won't they have any substantial conversation about her memoir, Never Again.

Things turned around, as they do in rom-com second acts, and she called him a pervert, which is always a good sign. Then the camera goes to black and white and they sit on a park bench, below the Brooklyn Bridge. And it all ends happily ever after, [...]

Katherine Heigl Gives The People What They Want: Weddings Forever!

Weddings! We wants them! Must have the weddings. Oh, sorry, just LOST MY DAMN GOLLUM MIND there for a minute thinking about Katherine Heigl's The Big Wedding, due out October 19, 2012. Robert De Niro and Diane Keaton co-star as "a long-divorced couple forced to pretend that they are still happily married at their son’s wedding." Because if those tricksy movie stars mess up our fantasy rom-com wedding, we will throw them into the Sammath Naur, we will.

Woody Allen Used to Write Super Endearing Letters to Diane Keaton

Woody Allen has done a pretty good job writing films, books, plays, and jokes but they're nothing compared to his letter. OK, those works are great but read some of these letters he writes Diane Keaton:

From 1969, around when they performed together in Play it Again, Sam:

Beet Head,

Humans are clean slates. There are no qualities indigenous to men or women. True, there is a different biology, but all defining choices in life affect both sexes & a woman, any woman is capable of defining herself with total FREEDOM. Therefore women are anything they choose to be & frequently have chosen & defined themselves greater than men. [...]
