Diane Keaton Said She Looked Like a ‘Moron’ in Snakeskin Stilettos

  • Diane Keaton appeared in an interview with Vogue published Friday. 
  • A photo of her wearing thigh-high snakeskin stiletto boots on the “Mack & Rita” set went viral in April 2021.
  • Keaton, 76, called the outfit “terrible” and said she’s “never seen anything worse.”

Diane Keaton went viral for wearing thigh-high snakeskin stilettos while filming her latest film “Mack & Rita” last year, and recently revealed she thought the outfit was “terrible.” 

Keaton, 76, recalled the ensemble during an interview published Friday with Vogue’s Ilana Kaplan while promoting the film which also stars Elizabeth Lail and Taylour Paige. In the movie, Keaton plays the titular character, Rita.

In April 2021, photos of Keaton wearing thigh-high snakeskin stilettos boots, a white button-down shirt, and a corset belt to cinch her waist hit the internet — leaving fans shocked.

Keaton’s outfit made the official movie poster and she shared it with fans on Instagram on July 7.

“I’m looking at the picture from ‘Mack & Rita’ that they’re selling of me and what I’m wearing,” Keaton told Vogue. “It’s not attractive—those legs are like sticks. It’s so stupid! So I hope it’s funny. I hope people get a kick out of how ridiculous it is. “

Keaton added: “The girls in the background [Lail and Taylour Paige] are both going to be big stars. And there I am, the moron on her last legs.”

When Vogue’s Kaplan insisted that Keaton was an “icon,” she said she enjoyed filming the movie but would never dress like her character, Rita. 

“No, I’m not. That’s no icon—more like an idiot, I’ll tell you that,” Keaton told the outlet. “That’s why I had a good time on the film, because I was just being me. I wouldn’t go so far as to wear the clothing that’s on the billboard. It’s terrible, are you kidding? That white thing with that belt around my waist … and those legs? I’ve never seen anything worse. And the fact that we put on those leggings with those boots? I mean, that’s scary.”

However, Keaton did admit that she helped choose her character’s outfit. 

“Are you thinking I didn’t pick out those clothes with help? I did. That was my choice. I’m taking the hit for that one. Of course the hair too—lovely,” Keaton told Vogue. “It says that I’m also a coproducer down at the bottom there, so they had to deal with me. I made some perfect choices for that character.”

According to the official website, the comedy is about a 30-year-old woman who visits Palm Springs for a bachelorette trip one weekend and later wakes up as her 70-year-old self. 

“Mack & Rita” premiered in theaters on Friday.
