Diane Keaton Never Got Married But Admitted That Al Pacino Was The Only Man She Ever Came Close To Taking The Plunge With

September 19, 2019

Diane Keaton is one of the most famous movie stars out there. Despite being in her 70s, she continues to be a hardworking actress. With a thriving career that has spanned decades, it's safe to say that Diane must consider herself to be a success story.

Al Pacino crush

Diane has never been married but this is not to say she never had love interests. She has had many high-profile romances, one of which was with actor and filmmaker Al Pacino.

In a 2017 interview with People, Diane revealed that she had a crush on Pacino when they worked together on The Godfather in 1971. And her wishes came true as they soon became a couple.

Love and marriage

In 2014, the award-winning actress told People that despite her flourishing career, one thing she "failed at" was settling down and getting married.

While she said it wasn't the "worst tragedy," Diane admitted that she wished she had "bought myself" a good man who would make a great father.

I really do. I think it’s a better way to go.

The mother of two revealed to the publication that she just wasn't being practical when it came to finding love and getting married.

I had some insane idea that I had to be ‘in love.’ Now I see what it really takes: real consideration that you’re a good team together.

This was not to say that the Annie Hall star never considered tying the knot with anyone. She revealed that the man she most wanted to make things work with was Al Pacino whom she dated for five years.

Unfortunately, Pacino wouldn't commit to marriage. She gave him an ultimatum and the relationship ended.

I worked hard on that one. I went about it in not a perfect way.

Diane said that she would later understand that Pacino just wasn't "really that interested."

I don’t think a long-term happy marriage would be easy for him.

The actress didn't rule out the possibility of being in another relationship but she said she could not imagine it.

You have to put yourself out there, and that’s really hard for me. Always was.

Al Pacino's love life

Diane could have been right about Pacino's disinterest in marriage. The 79-year-old actor has never been married.

Like Diane, Pacino has also dated a handful of ladies but it seems that settling down isn't on the menu for him.

These two had their big love story many years ago, but they have since moved on and are focusing on their craft and respective families.
