Keanu Reeves at the Champs Elysees Film Festival in Paris: would you hit it?


I believe that being into Keanu Reeves is a binary state. You can’t be just a little bit into Keanu, nor can you only hate him a little. It’s either/or. You either love him or you hate him. And over the years, it seems like more and more people love him. He’s not a famewhore. He doesn’t need people to pay attention to him in any kind of compulsive way. He’s still pretty hot. And he’s made several really good movies.

Anyway, these are some new photos of Keanu at the Paris premiere of The Man of Tai Chi. He premiered it during the Champs Elysees Film Festival. The Man of Tai Chi got some decent reviews and it’s at 70% on Rotten Tomatoes. It was also Keanu’s feature film directorial debut. Good for him. So… would you hit it? I still would. Something about the beard that still won’t grow in properly. Plus, he just looks like a nice guy. I kind of want to take care of him a little bit.

Meanwhile, there’s been an interesting development in that situation back in April, where Daniel Craig abruptly pulled out of the film The Whole Truth just days before it started production. It was a weird situation and we still don’t know what the hell was going on with Daniel. But now Deadline reports that Keanu has been cast in the role Daniel vacated. The role is “a defense attorney who fights to get his teenage client acquitted of murdering his wealthy father.” They’ve also moved the production from Boston to New Orleans after being “on hold” for the past two months. Huh.

It’s like he’s staring into my soul…

    Sorry. He does nothing for me.

  2. Nev says:

    so handsome.

  3. Maria says:

    Nope, but I will say he’s aged well.

  4. JustPassinThrough says:

    Well if you`re into wooden statues… :p

    • iheartjacksparrow says:

      You’re not kidding. I thought his early movies (Prince Pennsylvania, River’s Edge, the First Bill and Ted, Permanent Record) he was a really good actor. But it seems the older he gotten, the more robotic he’s become.

      • Chris says:

        Ah River’s Edge was the best 80s stoner movie bar none. It was a much more accurate portrayal of 80s teen life than all those Molly Ringwald films.

      • Altariel says:

        He was really good in Parenthood. Don’t think he’s ever been as relaxed since.

      • anon1 says:

        He was great in The Gift.

  5. AG-UK says:

    I love him maybe knowing he is a nice guy helps but I prefer him with long hair though

  6. Kayl says:

    Ugh yes. He’s my favorite. He’s such a good, good guy which just makes him more physically attractive.

    • Detritus says:

      Agreed. Always and forever with Keanu. His history is just so sad and he’s come so far.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      He’s a sweetheart. I would SO do him for that reason alone.
      Plus he looks great…aging very well.

  7. paola says:

    I am one of those people who doens’t like him nor hate him. He’s ok i guess but he does nothing for me.
    I loved him in Point Break though. Loved that movie.

    • kri says:

      He is beautiful. But get rid of that oddly shaped beard, please. He seems like a decent sort-you don’t hear bad stuff about him. I swear, it’s not that he’s aging “well” it’s almost like he’s not aging at all.Lucky bastard.

  8. GiGi says:

    I used to love him a lot. But I really can’t stand his “actor voice” that he uses in movies. It’s really not how he sounds at all when he’s just talking in interviews. It’s too distracting to me.

  9. spaniard says:

    Love him, he was my teenage crush and I’ll always have a soft spot for him. He is a really decent guy and one of the most underrated actors.

    • delorb says:

      Same here. Fell for him after seeing Speed 20 years ago. While I don’t follow him as ardently as I used to, he’s still the man. Gorgeous and really, really nice.

  10. Mia4S says:

    I can never decide if I’m into it or not because I get distracted by the fact that in a few months he will be 50!!! He doesn’t age!!!

  11. Samtha says:

    My forever dong. <3 When Keanu is 70, I will still be into him.

    I've always wished he and Sandra Bullock would get together and live happily ever after.

    • Victoria 1 says:

      Forever Dong!!! I love him and also wish him and sandy would get together in real life.

  12. Kayl says:

    For those of you who don’t know, he took a several million dollar pay cut for the movie The Devil’s Advocate so they could afford to hire Al Pacino. He did the same thing with The Replacements, so they could bring in Gene Hackman. He took a 90% pay cut for that one.

    For the Matrix films, he gave $80 million to the franchise’s special effects and costume design teams. Just cause they deserved it.

    A comment on Reddit tells a story- “A family friend builds movie sets, doesn’t design, is one of the poor dudes that just builds. Anyway, he worked on the set for the Matrix and Keanu heard about family trouble he was having and gave him a $20,000 Christmas bonus to help him out.”

    He donates large sums of money to cancer research. His sister is in remission.

    There’s also a video someone sneakily took of him giving up his seat to a woman on the subway in NYC.

    So yeah. Keanu is the man.

    • AG-UK says:

      That made my day I knew he gave to the special effects guys and he just seems so nice. Love him love him.. he can be my 2nd husband 🙂 That makes him more attractive to me.

    • GiGi says:

      I went to college with his sister & Anthony Keidis’s sister. Both Keanu & Anthony (& Flea!) visited regularly. It was like a late 90’s dreamland, lol! This was pre cell phone, so people would run back and say “Keanu is at the bookstore! Go!” They were always very nice. Good times 🙂

      • hunaww says:

        Oh my god GiGi how was Keanu like? Please describe him I beg you haha

      • GiGi says:

        Hahaha! Well… this is almost 20 years ago now! And it wasn’t like he was hanging out with us, lol. But when you’d see him out, he was always nice to people who came up to him – quiet. But nice.

      • LAK says:

        That lack of cell phones era….lol. nostalgia. We had similar system for hot guys on campus. It really was bushfire!!!

      • Chris says:

        And Ione Skye was in River’s Edge with Keanu and she was on the cover of The Red Hot Chili Pepper’s album Mother’s Milk. She was also dating Anthony for awhile.

    • MrsBPitt says:

      I was going to say never! But after what kayl said….I may have to do him! (Like he’d want to lol)

    • Ag says:

      that’s awesome. and i love it that he does all these things on the DL and isn’t a fame whore about anything.

      so, yeah, i like him a lot, and don’t want to see him be “sad keanu,” but i wouldn’t hit it. i don’t know why.

    • elo says:

      I love him! He also reportedly bought a grip a new car when his transmission went out during shooting.

    • eliza says:

      Thank you! These are stories about his truly decent and generous nature few know or even care about.

    • Mrs. Darcy says:

      Keanu is one of my long standing crushes (for I am old enough to go way back with him ;), he may not be the greatest actor in the world but he is still very watchable and beautiful in this rare, elusive way (sorry, The Lake House was on t.v. last night, he is just gorgeous in that). There was a blind reveal on CDAN the other week (I know, but it’s a nice one so I want to believe it, plus it fits his m.o.) about how he looks after his elderly neighbor a lot, even when he’s away he sends someone to check on them. Swoon, right? This is how to age gracefully – he has had a lot of tragedy in his life and I do think he has suffered for it but he still makes an effort to make the world a better place. How can you not love him?

    • PennyLane says:

      ‘There’s also a video someone sneakily took of him giving up his seat to a woman on the subway in NYC.’

      As I have made my way through life, I have learned that kindness is the single most attractive trait a human being can have.

    • Ahot says:


    • Altariel says:

      Oh yes, he’s the man! Wish more celebs followed his example. No ego on this one, and insanely generous….at least he actually does good deeds (quietly) instead of only preaching to his audience to do so.

  13. Julie B. says:

    Keanu forever! He was so hot (still is)… he’s like my imaginary hubby that has aged over the years but is still the hottest thing to me.

  14. Greata says:

    Love him, and the fact that he does his own thing.

  15. Trillian says:

    Wish he would shave off that beard. It’s so scruffy and uneven.

  16. LadyMacbeth ex Hiddles F. says:

    I always loved him and always will. I wouldn’t hit it because I never had a ‘crush’ on him but any time I see news or pics of him I must check! 🙂
    And he aged remarkably well! 🙂

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      I honestly don’t know how anyone couldn’t like this guy. He’s the opposite of a famewhore and unlike most of Hwood, he seems to be a well-rounded and wonderful person with interests outside of himself and his acting career.

      Keanu Forever!!

      • ds says:

        I couldn’t have said it better than the two of you. And he looks great!

      • Intro Outro says:

        @LadyMacbeth and @TheOriginalKitten: Agreed with every word. Never heard anything but positive things about him. And he aged beautifully. Damn, and I still haven’t watched Generation Um.. *looks at it apologetically*

  17. Lilacflowers says:

    I would hit it until he finally smiled.

  18. Ivy says:

    I was there! Not for “Man of tai chi” but the next day, there was a screening of “Side by Side”. He was just so nice and charming (and patient with that stupid translator lol). I love him even more (and I didn’t think that could be possible), he’s perfect!

  19. Aussie girl says:

    Maybe I’m crazy but he is looking very much toxed and filled to me…?

    • Kiddo says:

      I thought the same, and you are still crazy. 😀

    • Etheldreda says:

      Yup. Deffo had work done. That forehead is just unfeasibly smooth.

      If this were a female star, there’d already be several comments about the amount of botox. That said, whatever work he’s had done, it’s been done well.

  20. eliza says:

    Personally, I love this man. By all accounts he is extremely nice, extremely private and and all around good man.

    He looks terrific and even if he is not Oscar caliber to most, I think who he is as a person and how he has always conducted himself is worth more than being some hot shot Oscar winner.

    Love him.

  21. GeeMoney says:

    I’d throw him some just because he looks THAT good for being damn near 50 years old.

  22. Kate2 says:

    I would. He’s still hot. He’s just a shitty actor. But he seems like a great guy, and I felt horrible for all the tragedy he’s endured. He had every reason to go nuts after all that and he didn’t.

  23. Marty says:

    Yes! Always and forever.

    Even in “Rush, Rush, lol.

  24. I Choose Me says:

    I’ve always heard what an awesome guy he is. I’m not into him sexually but I’ve always disagreed with people who say he can’t act (watch The Gift with Cate Blanchett) and I will always respect and admire him.

  25. Ginger says:

    Funny that you posted this now. I just watched 47 Ronin last week and my family and I also watched the Matrix again a couple of days ago. Keanu may not be the best actor in the world but he’s so lovely I can’t tear my eyes away. That has to be the secret to his success. I’ve wanted to hit that for the last 25 years! 🙂

  26. Snowflake says:

    He looks like my brother from the nose, same eyes , forehead, so no. But he sounds like a wonderful person, I didn’t know all the stories about him doing nice things.

    Btw, how trashy is kk’s outfit? Somebody’s shooting for a milf title. I bet she comes out w some “fashionable” baby bothers line. She is so desperate for attention. She will really eff her face up when she starts getting older. Got to give it to her mom, she has a great plastic surgeon. I refuse to post on kk’s articles, if I want this Ho to go away, I have to stop posting on her articles

  27. Helvetica says:

    Love him and his outfit. He is so sexy.

  28. Liz says:

    Wish he wouldn’t look so sad all the time. He’s looked down for a very long time. Too young for that.

  29. Altariel says:

    I don’t get it….I love everything about him, he’s awesome and cute etc…..but he never entered a single fantasy/daydream for me. So, I guess that’s a “nope”. But whyyy??? *weeping*

  30. jaye says:

    He’s my forever crush. I think the first time I saw him was the “Rush, Rush” video and then I became slightly obsessed. So obsessed that I sat through those god awful Bill and Ted movies.

  31. Lara K says:

    Any day. Anytime. Anywhere.
    He is such a genuinely nice person on top of being really good looking. I wish we as a society would value personality a little more and emphasize chiseled abs and fame whoring a little less.
    Yet D-Bag Levine gets sexiest man titles whereas nice truly sexy guys who treat everyone like gold get sidelined.
    Keanu will always be my teenage crush. And I still hope he meets someone who can help him move on and be happy.

    • Ahot says:

      I am sure they asked him to be the sexiest & he turned them down. As far as true mate is concerned, I am that person, we just need to meet! 🙂 *chanting to the universe positive energy to make it happen*

  32. Olenna says:

    I don’t know about hitting it, but I’d give him a big hug and hold his hand. So handsome, but so melancholy.

  33. Gonzalez says:

    Hell no. But I admit to enjoying many of his films.

  34. peachcobblerby says:

    Love him! Always have,always will!

  35. Meg says:

    It’s the early 90s, and I’m working at the front desk of The Benson Hotel in Portland, Oregon. Keanu is staying there, and I’m dying to actually talk to him. So when he comes up to the front desk and says, “Hey man, can you keep my backpack for a hour?” I’m like, “Sure! But I’m not a man!” Hilarious…. or maybe not. He stares at me open mouthed for a couple seconds and walks away. So much for my witty repartee with celebrities.

  36. Alyce says:

    Yes! He is the first guy I ever found attractive. My parents rented Speed when I was 9 (it had been out for years at that point) & he was my first crush! Other girls were all about JTT & then the back street boys… I was all about Keanu. The Matrix movies in high school sealed the deal for life 🙂

  37. allheavens says:

    Keanu is a kind, caring and generous human being, in today’s world that us rare. I will forever love him.

    Keanu has done some good work along the way, River’s Edge, The Prince of Pennsylvania, I Live You to Death (he was funny as hell in that film), My Own Private Idaho, The Gift (he was very convincing as the sociopathic redneck), Speed (good as the stand up cop and was smart enough to stay away from the God awful sequel) , Point Break (look he was so beautiful so…), The Devil’s Advocate (calm center in all the over acting by Pacino and Charlize) , The Matrix ( well the sequels sucked but sometimes you gotta go with lifetime financial security).

    Wishing he finds some lasting happiness.

  38. Ladyray says:


  39. Madpoe says:

    Ooh hot damn!! This man!
    4eva my crush!

  40. amber5ash says:

    I’d hit it every day of the week.

  41. Sea Dragon says:

    I might hit it. He seems like the type that would get to work and give it his all but wouldn’t necessarily do it that well. Similar to his acting.
    He is handsome and strikes me as a regular person who happens to be a movie star. That’s nice. Yeah, in fantasyland I’d give it up just because it seems like a nice, attentive, good guy.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      LOL at your assessment of his skills in bed. I could see it going down like that!

  42. TuesdaysChild says:

    All day and every day. Kind, mighty generous and humble to a fault. And I have always found him super hot. We need more men like Keanu.

  43. Fan says:

    He still looks good. Maybe he and Sandra should do another Speed movie in Space.

  44. Sherlockapple says:

    He is not aging well in my opinion. However, from what I have read in the past, he’s had quite a bit of loss and sadness in his life. This can wreak havoc on your physical state. He still seems like a super nice guy!

  45. Mia says:

    Yes, always no matter what. I wish he did more projects.

  46. Source says:

    He’s my Forever Dong. I can’t help myself. I just wish he’d smile in a picture. He has a smile that lights up his whole face.

  47. hmmm says:

    He seems like such a sweetheart! And looking at him is an endless pleasure.

  48. whateveryouwantittobe says:

    I have nothing but love for Keanu, he seems like a really genuine and sweet person.

  49. aqua says:

    I have a soft spot for him and I always will.He’s just an all around great person so yes,I’d hit it.

  50. Keanuquotes says:

    I find him endlessly fascinating and uh, yes.

  51. Little M says:

    I would break my age rule for him. I’ve had a huge crush on him since I was ten.

    I guess that makes him my forever dong <3

  52. Rose says:

    I like him. I want him to be my brother-in-law.
