In a recent interview for the May/April 2023 issue of AARP Magazine, Keaton stated that she loves being single and is "highly unlikely" to go on a date or start a new relationship anytime soon.

In a 2019 interview with People magazine, Keaton expressed her joy at not being married, explaining that she wasn't built for it.

"I think that I'm strange," the Oscar award-winning actress shared. "I don't know anything, and I haven't learned. Getting older hasn't made me wiser."

In her fifties, Keaton adopted her daughter Dexter, now 27, and her son Duke, now 22. As her children have moved out in recent years, she has been forced to make do with the company of her pet dog, Reggie.

"Today I was thinking about this, I'm 73 and I think I'm the only one in my generation and maybe before who has been a single woman all her life," she told the publication as she reflected on marriage at the time.

Diane Keaton Recalls Intense Kissing Scene With Michael Douglas 

The "Annie Hall" actress once jokes that Michael Douglas, 78, had approached her like a Pitbull during their kiss in "And So It Goes." The pair first worked together in a film in 2014, and Keaton revealed that she was surprised by how assertive the "Ant-Man and the Wasp" actor was with her.

"What was exciting about him was that he was sort of like a pit bull. He kind of attacked me. And in the scene there, I was acting sort of cautious, but in my heart of hearts, I felt the same about him and I wanted to just get right with it," Keaton shared while on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."

"But it didn't happen that way because, of course, you know I'm a professional. So it worked out very well for the scene, but I enjoyed it."
