Can we, as a society, collectively stop worrying about Keanu Reeves? I’m not saying that to be mean at all – I’m saying that as someone who genuinely believes Keanu is a sweet, decent man who is fine. He’s had profound tragedy in his life, he sometimes looks unkempt, and he sometimes looks sad when he’s just chilling out. But he’s fine.
Still, these photos of Keanu created a lot of “poor sad Keanu” conversations. Keanu was just chilling out in New York, taking a break from stunt training for John Wick 3. He looked unkempt, and I’m pretty sure that’s for the character. He was sipping a protein drink and smoking a cigarette. Let Keanu Be Keanu, peeps!!! He’s a 53 year old vampire who likes to be quiet, smoke a cigarette on a street corner and meditate on the loading van which was in front of him. I do this all the time: it’s often fruitful and restful to just sit somewhere quietly, rest your mind, sip a drink and just let your mind wander as you watch other people do things.
May we all be so zen at the age of 53. May we all be as low-key at that age too. It just feels like Keanu is just a regular dude sometimes, right? So many celebrities pretend to be “real,” and then there’s Keanu. The Keanu Abides.
