It’s time to play everyone’s favorite game: Why Is That Celebrity Trending? Today’s Twitter-trending celeb is Academy Award-winning actress Diane Keaton, known for films like Annie Hall, Something’s Got To Give and The Godfather. However, those films aren’t why she’s the talk of Twitter this morning. Cue the Denzel gif, because the 74-year-old star has not died, caught a horrible virus, or said something horrendous! And this time it’s not because of her love of kissing. She’s actually trending for a truly mundane reason.
It all began with the tweet, where @MavenofHonor asked users to share their “most mundane celebrity encounters.” Hers was with Diane Keaton.
Now, more than ever, we should share our most mundane celebrity encounters. For example, in 2002 I saw Diane Keaton in the Gap— Mave (home version) (@MavenofHonor) May 13, 2020
She wasn’t alone in that. Apparently, Diane Keaton is everywhere.
Here’s how Twitter responded.
I almost ran over Diane Keaton in a parking lot in West LA.— Jane Lynch (@janemarielynch) May 14, 2020
I saw Diane Keaton at the London Acquarium. She was wearing headphones, and singing along quietly to the waitress song by the Roaches. Liza Minnelli was not there. #dianekeaton pic.twitter.com/DH9diOUcXg— Pelosi’s Power Pin (@Shrimedianet) May 14, 2020
I once waited on Diane Keaton at Orso Rest. in Beverly Hills. When I brought her food she said "Is this an arugula salad?" "Yes". "Ha! Good" she said, "Cuz that's what I ordered, yeah." #DianeKeaton— Myra Slotnick (@MyraSlotnick) May 14, 2020
Ran into Diane Keaton at Central Park Zoo once. Well-appointed was she!— Debbie Engelhardt (@DebraNewYork) May 14, 2020
In the ’80s I was driving through Havhaad Square on Mass Ave in my blue VW Beetle and I saw Diane Keaton outside a laundromat. She was wearing a big floppy hat big sunglasses big white shirt. She smiled at me. Or in my direction. I think they were filming Annie Hall. It was great— Ann Eldridge Malone (@AnnDEMalone) May 14, 2020
That's funny, Diane Keaton almost accidentally hit me with her G-Wagon 😂 https://t.co/f0fBzBI4mw— Jessie Pitts (@JessiePitts724) May 14, 2020
I once ran into Diane Keaton at Mulberry Street Pizza in Beverly Hills. She told me go ahead. I insisted she order 1st. So she did. She ordered the last slice of chicken parm. I haven’t liked her since.— John Morris (@JMorrisTV) May 14, 2020
I once saw Diane Keaton at Graceland in Memphis TN. She was wearing an all black vegas era Elvis jumpsuit, and a maroon turtleneck with TLC embroidered on it. I opened the door for her, she said “Thank you. Thank you very much.”— ▀▄▀▄ ᏃᎥᎶᎶᎽbᎪ ▄▀▄▀ (@Z1ggyba) May 14, 2020
The Diane Keaton trending thing is hilarious, my mom and I saw her at Disneyland once in a TURTLENECK during the middle of summer. Good times.— Aaron 🤷🏻♂️ (@aarondaydream) May 14, 2020
I, too, met Diane Keaton in the middle of the summer while she was wearing a turtleneck. And this was a Vegas summer so it was HOT hot. She’s a sweetheart though ❤️ https://t.co/WsURRE474P— Cheyenne👩🏻🦽 (@Cheyenne80195) May 14, 2020
a truly stunning amount of Diane Keaton at Disneyland Sightings in this hashtag pic.twitter.com/lmE6HH9jrD— Katy Stoll (@katystoll) May 14, 2020
I'll just add to the discourse: I have never met or almost run over Diane Keaton.— Steve Norwood (@norwoodeyesays) May 14, 2020
It feels great to see that Diane Keaton is trending ‘cause everyone is just acknowledging how wonderful she is pic.twitter.com/MkiKt8r0y8— Shamar English (@english_shamar) May 14, 2020
All these Diane Keaton stories are nice and all….but have you ever been to a party at her house and worn one of her hats?— Rich (@chardzrd) May 14, 2020
Some stories; however, seem apocryphal and certainly not mundane.
Diane Keaton once taught me to fly a helicopter.— 🦠 Good Boy with Bad Habits 🦠 (@HerPetTexan) May 14, 2020
Diane Keaton once hurled a 600lb gorilla at me, causing both the gorilla and I to tumble down the side of a steep mountain until we broke our fall against a cop car— بوكيبلينكي (@pookleblinky) May 14, 2020
One cop asked if he should shoot her in the leg to get her to stop.— John Lurie (@lurie_john) May 14, 2020
The other cop said, "I don't know, that is Diane fucking Keaton. You can't shoot Diane Keaton. Let me call the Captain."
But by the time they got the captain on the phone, Diane had whizzed away in her tractor.
Diane Keaton smacked my face and then walked out the door, she won't remember the incident, because it was her astral presence, so it's all good, I forgive the broad— AnimalLovers Unite (@AnimalLoversUn1) May 14, 2020
Dude I’m clean and sober and I would’ve said yes to all of that. It’s Diane Keaton— JackieGotSober (@JackieSober) May 14, 2020
