Keaton breaks down at conference

Hollwyood actress Diane Keaton broke down in tears at a press conference staged at the Berlin Film Festival.

The 58-year-old was appearing beside Something's Gotta Give co-star Jack Nicholson when she became distressed.

"You ask weird questions and I don't know how to answer them," said Keaton, who faced a barrage of questions about appearing nude in the film.

The Annie Hall star also complained that just three actors had to face questions from 300 reporters.

"This is hard. It's hard because I've not been with a bunch of people like this," Keaton told the press conference.

Keaton has been heavily promoting Something's Gotta Give, which sees her play the romantic lead in the comedy.

In January she picked up the best actress in a comedy Golden Globe, quickly followed by a best actress Academy Award nomination.

But the pressure took its toll in Berlin.

She told the assembled crowd: "It's just so odd. And the thing is there are so many of you and so few of us.

"I feel we're not represented by the crew and all the other people who worked on the film. We had about 200 people, if all of them were here. You know? I'm going nuts."

But she managed to say she found it "a great pleasure to be naked" in the film for which she has been so highly praised.
