Diane Keaton dished about past beaus while discussing her memoir, “Then Again,” on "Ellen" Tuesday, and gave the low-down on the one that got away: Steve Jobs.
Keaton, 65, says she met Jobs in the late ‘70s, when the late computer genius was her NYC neighbor.
Steve wanted to meet the “Annie Hall” star, so she went over for a visit. But things went downhill fast.
“[A]ll he’s talking about is the computer thing,” Keaton recalls. “How the computer was going to take over the world. And I’m sitting there like, ‘OK, right.’ And he keeps talking about how everyone is going to have a computer in their life, in their world, in their home. And I’m going, ‘Right, Right.’”
Unfortunately, all the tech talk didn’t go over well with the actress, who says she never saw Jobs again. “[B]ecause obviously I just wasn’t prepared for that. I thought, ‘Is he nuts?’” But Keaton does regret leaving Steve: “Can you imagine? What an idiot I was.”
