Diane Keaton has spent a lifetime coloring outside the lines of the conventional notion of beauty. In Let’s Just Say It Wasn’t Pretty, she shares the wisdom she’s accumulated through the years as a mother, daughter, actress, artist, and international style icon. This is a book only Diane Keaton could write—a smart and funny chronicle of the ups and downs of living and working in a world obsessed with beauty.
Not technically a bio/memoir (although there are many areas she reflects on her life) "Let's Just Say It Wasn't Pretty" is more or less a how to (for her) on how to age gracefully and learn to accept herself for who she is and how she looks, and how to be happy with it more or less gracefully.
Aging isn't beautiful for the average person and as I can imagine even worse for someone who lives their life in the bright lights and cameras of Hollywood.
Lets Just Say It Wasn't Pretty is a decent read for those who are feeling the pinch of age showing its ugly head and the doubts and issues it can bring to life for anyone including Diane herself.
The book wasn't quite what I was expecting but it was still a decent read although I can see how many people may have mixed feelings about it over all. Personally, I enjoyed it.
