I, for one, immediately turn on CNN. I think I’m a creature of habit—it’s just automatically where I go to. And, I love it. I love watching it, and I’m a big proponent of CNN. I’m a big fan. I love Anderson Cooper. I love Candy Crowley. I love them all—every single one of them.

It’s about love and loss and family and new love and babies. Then also having to say goodbye to someone that you adore, which is something that is part of all our lives.

Keaton plays Erica Barry in this comedy directed by Nancy Meyers.

He convalesces there and finds himself falling for her with an unexpected rival in the form of his doctor. Co-starring Jack Nicholson, Keanu Reeves, Frances McDormand and Amanda Peet.
Well you know, working with Jack is sort of like standing in front of the Grand Canyon. I don’t know, there’s too much going on there and you’re just this little speck on a precipice. He’s like this huge, massive kind of structure. He’s one of the Seven Wonders of the World. That’s the way it feels. It feels like that because I think there’s something about the way Jack uses language.
