Mix some eccentricity, a self-deprecating sense of humor, intelligence, wit, along with a slightly reclusive personality and some nervous energy, and you've got Diane Keaton through and through. The 63-year-old actress, who first gained acclaim in the 1970s with roles in The Godfather, along with a string of Woody Allen flicks, was actually born Diane Hall.

That's why I like saying 'we're worth it, we're worth it, we're worth it, we're worth it, we're worth it, we're worth it.' And don't you dare forget it because you're worth it."
