Over the last few decades, there have been several rumors surrounding Keaton’s romantic life, but in 2019, she told InStyle that she hasn’t dated anyone in over 30 years. “Never, all right,” Keaton laughed. “Let’s just get that straight. That one’s important. I haven’t been on a date, I would say, in 35 years. No dates.” She then went on to say that she has a lot of “male friends” but she is not romantically involved with any of them.

Diane Keaton told Ellen DeGeneres that she would like to marry a certain actor

Back in 2015, Keaton when on The Ellen DeGeneres show. While she was there, she started talking about how she had never been married. When DeGeneres told her that it was not too late to get married, Keaton replied, “Me? Who’s going to marry — oh, Channing Tatum?”

When DeGeneres informed her that Tatum was currently married, Keaton asked, “Channing Tatum is actually married to someone else? It’s not me?” DeGeneres then told Keaton again that she still had time to get married if she wanted to, but Keaton only seemed like she wanted to get married if Tatum was the one asking.

Tatum was married to Jenna Dewan from 2009 until 2018. After his divorce, he had a lengthy on-again, off-again relationship with singer Jessie J. It’s unclear if Tatum is looking to get married again, but if he does decide that one day he would like to permanently change his relationship status, Keaton will be ready and waiting.
