Diane Keaton regards her mother as her “first and most inspired leader”.
The 66-year-old actress was honoured with the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award on Wednesday at the 21st annual Women in Entertainment Breakfast.
Diane lost her mother Dot to Alzheimer’s disease in 2008. Dot passed away at the age of 86.
Diane holds her mom in the highest regard.
“[My mother is] my first and most inspired leader,” she revealed during her acceptance speech to The Hollywood Reporter and other members of the audience.
“You know, mom, sometimes I wonder what would have happened if I had told you how much I love the sound of your laughter. Would that have made you feel proud of yourself' Or what if I just told you how proud I was to be the daughter of a really special former Mrs. Los Angeles' Would that have made a difference' Or if I’d, oh god, told you how quickly I ran home to you the day Dave Garland stuck his finger in my padded bra and made me feel humiliated' Would you have finally understood that you were irreplaceable, mom'"
