54-year-old Keanu Reeves is the definition of "best celebrity ever." He's notorious for being a laid-back, friendly person who cares about his fans, and the people he works with. It's impossible to say what characters Reeves is even the most famous for. Is it Neo from The Matrix series? Or the more recent and growing-ever-popular John Wick series? Or perhaps you're an old-school fan and have loved him from Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure? Either way, if you know who Keanu Reeves is, you probably know he's one of the coolest, most down to earth dudes ever.
However, he recently opened up in an interview with The Jakarta Post that has astonished everyone... he's "a lonely guy." And hearts everywhere are simultaneously bursting and breaking for our beloved Keanu.
Obviously, The Matrix means a lot to you. How much like Neo are you?
He’s a better man than me but I try to live up to his values.
Which of his qualities do you particularly admire?
He was a beautiful man to play. I thought his love for Trinity was so pure. I really identified with it. Also, I loved his search for answers. He’s a strong positive, moral, and ethical man, doing the best he can.
What does love mean to you?
You mean romantic love? You know, I’m the lonely guy. I don’t have anyone in my life. But if it does occur, I would respect and love the other person; hopefully, it’ll happen for me.
You describe yourself as a lonely guy. Are you content with that?
I don’t concern myself with it that much. I’m an actor, so in terms of what you’re asking about, I have no answer.
You live in West Hollywood. Do people there respect your privacy? Can you walk around unnoticed?
My days are pretty normal. Of course, there are the tourist vans, they visit everybody’s homes. I come out in the morning and get my newspaper, and you’ll see them.
Sometimes you feel like an animal in a cage. But in Los Angeles, no one cares.
There’s definitely paparazzi chasing after you, but I don’t go out much, I don’t really do anything. I’m pretty boring.
From fans who would just love to have a beer and hang out with the coolest dude ever to just admitting, "you deserve to be happy," his supporters were far and wide.
Fans offered hugs and just wished he could find that person in life who will take away his loneliness.
And of course, it wasn't an invitation for solicitation, but surely you knew a lot of people would throw their name in the ring? Who wouldn't want to cure Keanu's loneliness first-hand?
Keanu Reeves has truly been through a lot in life, so his humble personality and genuinely kind soul are that much more special to the world who watches him from the outside. He deserves happiness.
Prayers and positive vibes from fans across the world... for the one and only Keanu Reeves.
Here's to hoping his happily ever after is out there and not far away!
