She has inspired generations to wear wide-legged pants, off-kilter hats, and lazily knotted neckties. Style cred aside, Diane Keaton has won numerous awards for her acting (including an Oscar, for 1977’s Annie Hall), directed four films, and published several books and memoirs. Her latest project on the publishing front is Saved, a collection of words, photographs, and film stills that are collaged together into a sort of visual autobiography. On the occasion of its publication, she shares her key components to the good life. —Ashley Baker
