Diane Keaton: I could've dated Steve Jobs

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.”

    Boy, way to take a cool anecdote and turn it utterly dismal. Come on – it's a neat story if you care about either of the two people involved. Add to that a celebrity being humble? A fluff piece which adds something.

    Actually, dumping a guy who's super self-absorbed on your first date sounds pretty smart to me...

    Typical female. Wants nothing to do with a poor geek, but everything to do with a rich geek. And chicks wonder why all we care about it their furburger.

    Does this really surprise any man? No. How many times have we been "dumped" by a potential mate because we didn't fit into thier criteria of that moment. The fact is women think in "time now", while men think about the future. If you can't please a woman for that moment, she'll be gone in a heartbeat to find another guy. They care less about "what-if's" and only care about the moment. This is how they're wired.

      Nice to know you're an expert on all women.....must have been dumped alot, huh? Maybe it's because you make faulty assumptions about women. Nothing like being stereotyped. I think that's your problem.
