Diane Keaton is reminiscing on the time she starred in Justin Bieber’s 2021 “Ghost” music video. In a new interview with Metro UK, the Something’s Gotta Give actress opened up about playing Bieber’s grandmother. Keaton, 77, admitted that she wasn’t even a fan of his at the time.
She told the publication that she couldn’t believe the pop star casted her. “This was like one of those things that happens [and] you’re going, ‘I’m what?'” Keaton said. “And of course, it was so much fun, it couldn’t have been more fun. I can’t believe it. I still can’t believe it.”
In the music video, Bieber, 29, celebrates his grandfather’s birthday with grandmother Keaton shortly before he dies. Bieber and Keaton are then seen mourning him over the next two years while spending quality time together. By the end of the music video, he sets her up on a date with a new man.
Though she admitted she knew his music a “little” and “liked” some of it, she made it clear she wasn’t a fan and doesn’t “have music pouring in my ears all the time.” Still shocked by why she was chosen, Keaton told the publication, “I don’t know why me. I still don’t understand. I don’t know how, but I loved it.”
