Did diane keaton dating keanu reeves
(Anyone hoping, as I was, that this might be a sly reference to the most memorable line in the famous 1992 "Seinfeld" episode "The Contest" will be disappointed.) It's tempting to describe this Diane Keaton-Jack Nicholson vehicle about late-in-life love as a bad movie.
But that would be giving it too much credit, because it's hardly a movie at all.
Sex and the older woman is a subject rarely tackled by Hollywood, and the film appears to have touched a nerve with audiences. I was never really suited for marriage and I don't regret never having married.
Its American release was warmly received – it knocked The Last Samurai off the top spot on its first weekend – and Keaton's performance was given hefty seals of approval this week with a Golden Globe for best comic actress, and a best actress nomination on the Oscars list. I think there's a kind of physical embarrassment involved that will never go away as far as I'm concerned."In fact, the woman who has had affairs with Warren Beatty, Woody Allen and Al Pacino among others, but has never married, makes it plain that there is little chance of any man sharing her life in the future."I don't think it's even a remote possibility," she says cheerfully. I'm not dating anyone now and I'm not aware of any young man pursuing me." She laughs merrily.
I wanted to like this movie more than I actually did, because it addresses a couple of provocative issues head-on, without too much sugar coating.
Her character is a long-divorced, emotionally vulnerable woman who finds herself courted by both a young doctor, played by Keanu Reeves, and her daughter's boyfriend, an ageing playboy played, of course, by Jack Nicholson.
No sooner do they arrive than Mom (Keaton) and her sister (Frances Mc Dormand) show up.
Nicholson and Keaton take an immediate dislike to each other, but all four nonetheless decide to stay at the beach house together.
("We're all sophisticated people," explains Mc Dormand.) That night, during foreplay with Peet, Nicholson suffers a heart attack and is rushed to the hospital.
When he recovers, his young doctor (Keanu Reeves) releases him from the hospital but only on the condition that he remain "nearby"--i.e., at Keaton's house.
