Diane Keaton Talks Aging

Diane Keaton recently sat down for an interview with People, where she talked about aging Here's what she had to say:

On if her style has changed over the years:
“Hell no, not even at all. Although if you look at Annie Hall, I’m sleeveless and my arms are dangling around. I did expose my body. Now I would say no exposing of any aspect.”

On blush:
"You don’t want the kewpie doll look.”

On lighting:
“It’s important when you’re making up. The dimmer is your friend.” 

How has your routine changed since Annie Hall days?
Oh you know, I don’t even remember. I just washed my face — that was a good thing, I kept clean. And I always liked eye makeup and lipstick. I still do — a little shadow and pencil, lipstick. Those lips shouldn’t be too dark. I like a beige-y pink.

In what ways have you fought the outward signs of aging?
Of course I’m going to do the best I can. Given the circumstances. I exercise — I really enjoy my treadmill. My hair is now white. It’s better to have light around your face — I think it looks better on older people. Darker hair is not as softening.

No plastic surgery?
No. My feeling is that everybody has their hands and their hands are always at the face, so if the hands don’t match the face it’s a little weird. My hands are the hands of the age I am. They’ve been through a lot and they look like it!

How about your neck — do you feel bad about it?

Of course. Hello, how about every part of my body? My eyes have always drooped down and now they almost go to my ears. I’m used to them, what can I do?

Teeth whitening?
Okay, here’s my feeling about teeth whiteners. Personally, I would really like to have much whiter teeth than I have. But my teeth are so bad because you know when I was younger, I went through a period of bulimia. That ruins your teeth. I’ve had so much work just to keep mine! Don’t ever go there. So, I think if I were to have whiter teeth, I’d have to get rid of my teeth.

As such a recognizable star, do you feel you need to look good every time you leave the house?
Yeah, you have to comb your hair and you have to wear something you think looks good, but I like that. That’s fun.
Everyone has little paths or little hints about what will make them feel good. Do whatever you want — to heck with it! But that’s the other point: Don’t take too much time on yourself. Keep looking outward — that’s where the amazing part of life is.
