When Keaton was starting out as an actress, she very briefly used her sister's name, Dorrie Hall.
She was named Harvard's Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year in 1991.
On eschewing marriage: "I grew up in the 50s, when there was a pervading feeling that you could have it all. Of course there's a sadness that in some way I didn't fulfill that early dream."I didn't have it in me to go the distance. Sure, maybe that would have been wonderful – fulfilling in a deeper way. On the other hand, I don't envy it at all. I don't think that because I'm not married it's made my life any less. That's the myth of the old maid. It's garbage. For a while you think, 'Oh, you have to have someone in your life to be fulfilled.' Now I don't feel that way for a second." – Keaton quoted in USA Weekend, Dec. 8-10, 1995
Keaton was named one of People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People for 2004.
Keaton released her memoir Then Again in November 2011. Much of the autobiography relied on her mother Dorothy Hall's private journals, that she only read after her death in 2008.
