Actress Diane Keaton — turning 62 on Saturday — says that she "plunged in" to motherhood via adoption after it became clear to her that the "strong and substantive" relationship she had hoped for with a man wasn’t going to happen in time. Describing her life before daughter Dexter, 12, and son Duke, 7 as "years of selfishness," Diane says she has no regrets about the way things turned out.

Now that she is a mom, Diane says she enjoys having the focus off herself and instead on her kids — telling Ladies Home Journal that "you can’t sit there and go, poor me." Known for her unique fashion sense in addition to her acting career, she says she also delights in embarrassing the kids from time to time.
