"I’m going to try to make people be more encouraged to kiss me,” the Poms actress said on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
She’s a rom-com queen, but even Diane Keaton needs some more affection in her life.
“In the year, I remember that from the last time I was with you, I kissed you. Remember?” she asked Kimmel, 51. “And in the ensuing year that’s passed, nobody’s kissed me that’s a male person. That’s what you are, you’re a male right?”
After the host assured Keaton of his sex, she continued to make a request.
“And so could you do me a favor?” the Oscar winner, 73, said on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “Could you stand up here? I want to show you, I have a new way, a new approach, so men will give me some kisses.”
Kimmel happily obliged. “You know I’m married, but my wife is such a big fan, she doesn’t mind if I kiss you,” he said. “In a way it goes to her.”

Keaton, who’s been linked to Woody Allen, Warren Beatty and Al Pacino throughout her decades-long career — hoped this fresh take on smooching will help her garner some physical attention. “I’m going to try to make people be more encouraged to kiss me,” the actress said. “Like a man-type thing.”
The mother of daughter Dexter, 23, and son Duke, 18, doesn’t have any regrets over never marrying.
“I don’t think it would have been a good idea for me to have married, and I’m really glad I didn’t,” she told PEOPLE. “And I’m sure they’re [her kids] happy about it, too.”
Keaton added, “I’m 73 and I think I’m the only one in my generation and maybe before who has been a single woman all her life.”
Poms is out Friday.
