Diane Keaton, star of stage, display screen and Justin Bieber music videos, is among the most delightfully weird superstar follows on Instagram.
On any given day, you’ll be able to anticipate an unboxing video of her missing tooth, earnest golden retriever content material, blurry mirror selfies or a collage of famous men in Hollywood who wouldn’t date her ― all of which exist alongside captions enthusiastically written with an lively Caps Lock key.
So, when the Oscar winner selected to have fun a handful of actors, together with Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert Pattinson and Zayn Malik, in a submit labeled “MALE BEAUTY” earlier this week, virtually nobody bat a watch. As varied faces flashed throughout the video slideshow, Keaton gave her critiques (“Don’t you love the neck on this guy?!”), commenting on what made every choice stunning.
“Talk about beauty. Leonardo DiCaprio ― give me a break. I knew him when he was a kid,” mentioned Keaton, who certainly starred alongside the younger actor within the 1996 movie “Marvin’s Room.”
Except the picture of the brooding blond younger man wasn’t DiCaprio, however as an alternative Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe’s 18-year-old son, Deacon.
“The Morning Show” star was fast to slip into the feedback part and proper Keaton, writing: “Diane, the first one is my son” alongside a coronary heart emoji.
Keaton responded to Witherspoon’s message with a few blushing emojis.
While they’ve by no means appeared collectively on display screen, Witherspoon and Keaton do share a historical past, with the “Big Little Lies” alum paying tribute to the legendary performer again in 2017, when Keaton acquired the AFI Life Achievement Award.
Although Witherspoon sang her praises on stage, Keaton later admitted that the 2 aren’t precisely shut in actual life throughout a viral look on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” after the ceremony.
“You know, I met Reese when she was 14 and I directed her in a TV movie,” Keaton recalled. “She was just a kid. There was no question [she’d be a movie star]. Great looking. Great talent.”
“And yet still not a friend? Kimmel asked, to which Keaton replied: “No, not a friend.”
But the 2 have apparently gotten nearer within the years since, as Keaton gave Witherspoon a barely unhinged shoutout simply final month on ― sure, you guessed it ― Instagram. Reposting a clip of a toddler pretending to speak on the cellphone, the “Poms” star advised her followers: “THIS IS A YOUNG REESE WITHERSPOON IN THE MAKING!!!”
Witherspoon appeared flattered, writing: “Someone get this little lady an Oscar ASAP!!” and thanking Keaton for sharing the video.
