Personal Quote:

[on Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse (1991)] Even then when it came out, he [husband Francis Ford Coppola] was not happy because he felt like it made him look too out of control. But my reaction is, it really shows the creative process and the depth of anguish that it can be. I think now he's gotten over it. [2016] See more »

Trivia:

In the Godfather films, Diane Keaton plays an American Protestant who marries into a large Italian Catholic family. This is not unlike Eleanor herself, who married into the Coppola family. In fact, Keaton has said that her performance was inspired by Eleanor. See more »
