Diane Keaton gives up her buzzy “Mack & Rita” outfit.
The 76-year-old Oscar winner took to social media last year when she stepped onto the set of her new body-swap comedy wearing a pair of thigh-high snakeskin stiletto boots and an oversized white button-up shirt.
“Strong Moira Rose energy”, a fan tweeted at the time, comparing Keaton’s looks to the classy matriarch ‘Schitt’s Creek’.
“I mean, is she beautiful or is she BEAUTIFUL?” another wrote.
But it turns out that the ‘Annie Hall’ actress isn’t a fan of the outfit, which she wears with a wide corset belt on the movie poster.
“I’m looking at the picture of ‘Mack & Rita’ they sell of me and what I’m wearing. It’s not attractive – those legs are like sticks. It’s so stupid!” Keaton told Vogue in a recent interview, describing the look as that of an “idiot on her last legs”.
“I wouldn’t go so far as to wear the clothes on the billboard. It’s terrible, are you kidding? That white thing with the belt around my waist… and those legs? I’ve never seen anything worse,” she continued of the “scary” getting up.
Unfortunately, as the project’s producer, Keaton added that she had “a lot” of input on her character’s costumes — so she can’t blame anyone but herself for the fashion faux pas.
‘Do you think I didn’t pick out those clothes with help? I did. That was my choice. I’ll take the blow for that one,” the Book Club star joked.
In “Mack & Rita,” out now, a 30-year-old woman (Elizabeth Lail) wakes up as her 70-year-old self (Keaton) after a wild bachelorette party in Palm Springs.
Fittingly, Lail’s character appears in the background of the movie poster in the same boots-and-shirt ensemble; it’s unclear if she loathed the look as much as her counterpart.
