Diane Keaton Shares The Joys Of Being Single and The Thrills of Her Newfound Social Media Stardom in Exclusive AARP The Magazine Interview

Diane Keaton Shares The Joys Of Being Single and The Thrills of Her Newfound Social Media Stardom in Exclusive AARP The Magazine Interview

The iconic, award-winning actress on her mother’s dreams fueling her drive, embracing being single, and dancing to the beat of her own drum

WASHINGTON—Diane Keaton is a woman who needs no introduction – a national treasure and an icon, the 77-year-old Academy Award-winning actress has done it all. AARP The Magazine (ATM) caught up with Keaton ahead of her upcoming comedy film Book Club: The Next Chapter, scheduled to release May 12 with whom she co-stars with Jane Fonda, Mary Steenburgen and Candice Bergen, to discuss how her mother’s dreams ignited the start of her career, the joys of being single, and the fun that comes with her newest undertaking – being an Instagram star.

The following are excerpts from ATM’s April/May 2023 cover story featuring Diane Keaton. The issue is available in homes starting in April and online now at www.aarp.org/magazine/.

On realizing her dreams at 7 years old:

“I watched my mother get crowned Mrs. Highland Park. I remember going, ‘Oh my God, I want that too. I want to go up there on stage where it’s all lit up.’”

On being cast as Kay Corleone in The Godfather:

“Someone said to me, ‘You’ve got to go and audition for things,’ so I auditioned for the film, and I got the role of Kay Corleone. That was the strangest thing to ever happen to me in my whole life.”

On being single:

“I don’t date. Highly unlikely. I don’t remember anyone calling me, going, ‘This is So-and-So, I’d like to take you out.’ They don’t happen. Of course not.”

On her dog and companion Reggie:

“A friend of mine gave her to me. I didn’t even ask for her. He came to me and said, ‘I think you need this dog.’ I was like, ‘Okay, I guess?’ Of course, now I just love her. Dogs are irresistible. They’re just idiots. Reggie is a big jerk, and she’s hilarious.”

On her passion for photography and filming Book Club: The Next Chapter in Italy:

“My entire trip was really about all of the things I saw and took pictures of. You walk around the streets and don’t know what you’re going to come across – that’s how rich it is.”

On her late brother, Randy:

“He passed relatively recently – it’s been a couple of years. [He] had a hard time with the world at large and just in life. He was so delicate in some ways, so sensitive. He was a real artist at heart.”

On posting on Instagram:

“I need the help, and I cherish it. It’s like making little movies, in a way. It’s collaborative.”

Special Reports from the March AARP Bulletin: ‘Check Washing’ Crimes on the Rise, Grandparents Being Called to Parent Again, What Next for COVID, and the Recent Surge of Product Recalls

Special Reports from the March AARP Bulletin: ‘Check Washing’ Crimes on the Rise, Grandparents Being Called to Parent Again, What Next for COVID, and the Recent Surge of Product Recalls

WASHINGTON—The March issue of AARP Bulletin offers readers a slew of the latest news updates and stories – from the latest rising mail scam to the heartbreaking-but-frequent scenarios where grandparents are relied on for parental duties again. The following are highlights from this month’s Bulletin:

Fraud Watch: The Check is NOT in the Mail

Are your mailed checks safe? Stealing paper checks from mailboxes is on the fast rise in the U.S., often leading to losses of thousands of dollars per crime. In this emerging fraud, criminals carefully remove all details from your check using bleach or acetone–except your signature. That essentially leaves them a blank check. This month, learn all about this decidedly low-tech scam and how to help protect yourself from becoming a victim.

Your Life: Called to Parent—Again

The twin crises of the opioid epidemic and the COVID pandemic have left countless thousands of children orphaned, increasing the pressure on grandparents to take on a parental role again. The most recent Census tells us that 7.1 million U.S. grandparents are living with grandchildren in their home – more than ever before. This month in Your Life, the Bulletin shares the stories of this upsetting trend and offers resources for support.

Your Money: Protect Yourself from Dangerous Products

Product recalls are increasing and often for products not typical for recall. Shockingly few people bother to respond, at their own peril—responding can be a matter of life and death. The good news is that recall remedies are free. In this issue, we give you tips to help protect you and your family. 

Your Health: Health ‘Truths’ You Can Ignore

Sometimes, an offhand comment (such as, “you’ll catch a cold outside if you don’t put on a warmer jacket!”) seems to become a fact when it’s repeated often enough, even without evidence to support it. Read this month’s Your Health to learn 16 health “truths” you can mostly ignore.  

Cover Story: The Pandemic’s Impact on Home, Family, Health Care, Money and More

As we enter year four of COVID-19, life in America is a tale of two pandemics. In noteworthy ways, the greatest health crisis of our time appears to be over, and yet a new strain of COVID has emerged that is particularly tough on the elder. From telehealth and working from home to travel, many aspects of our lives have changed. This month’s cover story of the Bulletin looks at what’s changing, what’s not and what next for people 50-plus.

Are We Losing the Battle Against Heart Disease?

Discover why heart-related health challenges are on the rise and ways to help prevent them in the January-February Issue of AARP Bulletin

WASHINGTON—Despite breathtaking medical advancements since President Harry Truman declared war on heart disease 75 years ago, researchers have observed a disturbing trend that started in 2009: America’s death rate from heart-related conditions is climbing again. Heart disease-related deaths have increased for people in all age ranges, and the COVID pandemic only made the situation worse. The data is clear: Americans today are losing the battle against heart disease.

This January, the Bulletin offers a report that untangles this trend, filled with insight from dozens of medical professionals. We show how far science has come in its understanding and treatments of heart disease, but why societal and lifestyle trends make heart disease so much more likely for many older Americans. Ultimately, the evidence shows, preventing heart disease is also in your hands, not just your doctor’s.

Learn about:

  • The latest heart disease breakthroughs
  • How you can prevent heart disease
  • What questions to ask your doctor about your heart
  • And more.

Also in the January issue of AARP Bulletin:

Your Money

  • Get Extra Credit for Your Taxes: What do buying an electric car, contributing to an IRA or installing new windows for your home have in common? That’s an easy one for a tax accountant: They’re all items for which the federal government might give you money to do, by way of a tax credit. With the new year underway and the 2022 tax filing season about to begin, it’s the perfect moment to pay attention to these offerings.

Fraud Watch

  • ‘Heartbreaking Evil’ Fraud Ring Shut Down: Six people have pleaded guilty, and two are charged but not arrested, for taking part in a “heartbreakingly evil” fraud operation popularly known as “the grandparent scam.” Learn the method they used to steal from over 70 older Americans and how to recognize the fraud if scammers try to pull it on you or a loved one.

Your Health

  • 7 Things Your Toes Could Reveal About Your Health: Few know that your toes and toenails can tell you a lot about your health. Read this month’s Bulletin to learn how a little digit detective work by you and your doc could reveal kidney disease, diabetes and several other conditions.  

Your Life

  • Your Money Isn’t Good Here: Thousands of stores across America have made the decision to no longer accept cash, and the trend is growing quickly. Ultimately, the switch saves money for the retailer, but is it good for the consumer? We explain the technology that makes card or digital payments secure; the laws regarding cash acceptance; and how to operate safely in an increasingly no-cash retail world.
  • Q&A with Jon Meacham: “Lincoln’s life is a powerful warning for us,” the Pulitzer Prize-winning author and historian shares on what the 16th President can teach us about a divided nation. Read this month’s Your Life section to learn more.

AARP The Magazine is America’s Most Read Magazine, According to MRI-Simmons

With 38.7 Million Readers, AARP The Magazine Remains America’s Most-Read Magazine For Fifth Consecutive Year

WASHINGTON—New survey results from MRI-Simmons find that AARP The Magazine (ATM) remains America’s most-read magazine, a distinction it has held for five consecutive years. ATM, AARP’s flagship publication, continues to serve as a primary source of information and entertainment for people age 50-plus – with a readership of 38.7 million.

“We are delighted to see that once again AARP The Magazine is America’s most-read magazine,” said Bob Love, VP and Editor in Chief of AARP Publications. “It is a tribute to the talented editors, writers, photographers, and designers who knock it out of the park issue after issue. It is also a tribute to our readers, who take us into their homes and look to us for great, authoritative content.”

ATM’s readership is at a new-all time high, eclipsing the previous high-water mark of 38.6 million reached in Spring 2018. According to the latest MRI-Simmons data, 91% of readers read their issues at home versus the industry average of 53%.

ATM delivers high quality content via three versions of the magazine, each geared to a different demographic – one for readers age 50 to 59, one for those 60 to 69, and one for those 70-plus. ATM includes iconic cover stars, health and fitness features, inspiring stories from everyday people, financial guidance, consumer information and tips, celebrity interviews, and book and movie reviews. AARP has published its magazine for members since its founding in 1958.

AARP Creates Solution Guide to Modern Problems

December Issue of AARP Bulletin Helps Readers Resolve Dozens of Their Most Common Hassles and Concerns

WASHINGTON—In our world of targeted marketing, it’s easy to think that all problems are best solved by buying a product or hiring a service. But a bit of clever thinking can go a long way to solving hassles that inevitably emerge in all our daily lives. This month, AARP Bulletin editors have gathered dozens of top industry professionals to provide clear and simple solutions to your everyday health, finance, home and tech issues.

In this month’s issue, learn the answers to:

  • How could I get an increase in my property taxes lowered?
  • Should I actually consider solar panels on my roof?
  • How could I improve the wi-fi signal in my home?
  • Is going gluten-free sensible if I don’t have a gluten intolerance?
  • How could I get surprise hotel fees waived?
  • And much more!

Also in the December issue of AARP Bulletin:

Your Life

  • Where’s That Document?  Even in this thoroughly digital world, there are still a few pieces of paper like birth certificates, car titles, and home deeds that remain vitally important to keep, tend to and, on rare occasions, use. So what is the proper way to store and secure them? And if lost, how do you replace them? Learn how to organize and store those documents in this month’s Bulletin.  

Fraud Watch

  • Protect Your Kids and Grandkids from Fraud: Teens and twenty-somethings are increasingly the targets of digital scams catered to their unique life stage, such as criminals offering to help them become online “influencers.” Read this month’s fraud feature on how older Americans can play a better role in teaching and protecting young adults as they have their first encounters with the world of fraud.

Your Money

  • A New Way to Measure Retirement Savings: It’s natural to think of retirement saving in terms of a single lump-sum number (“I have this much saved up!”). But that number isn’t very useful; what matters is how much MONTHLY income you can count on. Thanks to a new law, your retirement plan will now include an estimate of how much monthly income your account could provide to you in retirement. Here’s how you could use that number to greatly improve your retirement planning.
  • Shop Safely on Social Media: Social Media ads can be so tempting. But not all the deals in your feed are legitimate! Read this month’s Bulletin to learn steps you can take to shop more safely on social media sites.
