Succeeding in the entertainment industry isn’t easy, but award-winning actress Diane Keaton has made her mark in Hollywood. Best known for her roles in The Godfather trilogy, The First Wives Club and several Woody Allen movies, Keaton has managed to maintain longevity in a business where only the strongest (and luckiest) survive.

A true Renaissance woman, Keaton hasn’t limited herself to just one area of expertise. In addition to acting, she’s a photographer, author, occasional singer, and high-end real estate developer.

With all of her achievements, it seems she wouldn’t have much time for love. But the actress has been in several relationships, most notably with director Woody Allen and actors Warren Beatty and Al Pacino. None of these relationships ended in marriage, but Keaton isn’t deterred from living her Single life to the fullest. Despite never saying “I do”, she instead chose to become a mother and adopt two sons.

In July 2001, Keaton revealed her thoughts on being older and unmarried: “I don’t think that because I’m not married it’s made my life any less. That old maid myth is garbage.

“I wouldn’t rule [marriage] out, but at the same time, I do not see that in my future. I mean, there’s a certain point in your life where you can’t help it, you’re biologically chared and driven towards the opposite sex. You dream about men, you love them, you’re excited by it, and I don’t feel that way now. There’s a kind of freeing aspect to that.”

And what’s better than living free?
