Looking her true age (68) with an endearing smile and none of her onscreen stammer, she usually keeps her trilby-type hat pulled low, almost hiding her eyes, trying not to draw attention at these swim meets, but patient, open and friendly when recognized and addressed.
In her newest book, Let’s Just Say It Wasn’t Pretty, Diane Keaton presents a clever and humorous account of her life spent working in a world obsessed with beauty. Keaton encourages readers to fight against society’s conventional standards of beauty, becoming more true to themselves and learning to love who they are both inside and out. Through personal anecdotes and experiences, Keaton discusses how our perception of ideal beauty changes with age, and how living a fulfilling life, not physical appearance, is actually the beauty people are seeking their whole lives.
