Keanu Reeves Has a Hilarious Reaction To Being Called the ‘Internet’s Boyfriend’

by Samantha Whidden

During the premiere of his new film The Matrix Resurrection, Keanu Reeves shared his thoughts about being deemed “the internet’s boyfriend.

When asked what it was having the adorable title,  Keanu Reeves couldn’t help but shyly respond. “I don’t know. Nice is Nice, you know? Other than that, I don’t know what to say. But, uh, thank you.”

While also chatting with Entertainment Tonight, Keanu Reeves spoke about his Speed co-star Sandra Bullock wanting to team up with him again, this time on a comedy. “That sounds like an absolutely fine idea, Sandra.”

Bullock recently gushed about Keanu Reeves during an interview with Esquire. “We just get to grow up together on parallel roads and tip our hats and meet for a dinner and try to work together. And the longer time goes on, the more in awe I am of the human being. Would I have been able to say that if he had dumped me and made me angry? Probably not.”

While chatting about a potential comedy for her and Keanu Reeves, Bullock said she wants to star in a comedy where they play two funny old people. “A road trip. Just put us in an RV as old people.”

Keanu Reeves Says He Wants to Get As Much Done As Possible As He Ages 

During an interview with The Guardian, Keanu Reeves spoke about how he is seeking as many roles as he can before he ages up. “I’ve wanted to get as much done as I can before that turning tape runs out. How old am I now? 57?”

Reeves stated that around the time he hit 30, there was an idea of creating more from his ‘artistic loins.’ That’s when he decided to do two or three movies per year. The actor spoke about how the years have gone by so quickly. He goes on to add, “When you’re young, you have a big old reel of that tape left, right? And so it appears to revolve slowly. Then, time passes, and there’s less and less tape left on the reel. It spins faster. It spins faster.”

Along with acting, Reeves spoke about his other projects, including his poetry writing. He opened up about his 2016 book of poems, Shadows. He said the book was an effort to externalize his grief throughout the years with the death of a girlfriend and his good friend River Phoenix. “[It] contextualized the grief. Even be inspired by it. Even find a certain pleasure in it. Let [the grief] move and not be trapped inside it. It just put things in a new shape that I could carry or have with me.”

Reeves’ The Matrix Resurrection will premiere in theaters on December 22nd.
