Does Keanu Reeves need to wash his hair, or is he a perfect angel as-is?

Fillm Premiere of John 3 Wick

Here are some photos from the big Hollywood screening (not a premiere?) of John Wick 3 – Parabellum. Since everyone loves some Keanu Reeves, here you go. I still love Keanu, who is basically the only unproblematic man from his generation of celebrities. I still love him… while sort of hating his hair these days. I’m sure it’s for a movie or something, but it looks hella stringy and unwashed. Maybe a ponytail would work better?

Back when Keanu was filming this last year, there were several rumors going around about Keanu hitting it off with his costar Halle Berry. While I think most men would probably shoot their shot with Halle, I also think that… maybe Halle and Keanu aren’t each other’s types. Halle and Keanu posed arm in arm and it was sweet – but I don’t think they look like they’ve boned, you know? It looks more like she flirts with him and he smiles enigmatically at her. Keanu also happily posed with his other lady costar, Anjelica Huston, who is on everyone’s sh-t list these days. Oh, and Ian McShane was there too.

Also: if you’re anything like me, you’ve been pretending to understand WTF “parabellum” has meant this whole time. Keanu explained it to Entertainment Weekly: “‘Parabellum’ is Latin. It’s the second half of a Latin phrase. ‘Si vis pacem, para bellum.’ It’s basically, If you want peace, then [prepare for] war. So, parabellum is prepare for war.” Ahhhh. They could have called it John Wick: WAR TIMEZ.

    I would wash his hair before hitting it and then after. It’s fine!

  2. Veronica S. says:

    I think they just put too much product in it, honestly. Smoothing it down with gel or oil can push it into greasy territory if you aren’t careful, particularly if you have dark hair where the lustre will contrast with the color.

    Looks like age is finally catching up to the vampire! I wonder what mortal treasure was worth the expense of his immortality to accept grey in his beard.

  3. Elizabeth says:

    He could wash his hair and shave, at least the pointed bits on his cheeks that make his face look like a skull. Other than that, he’s still very handsome.

  4. minx says:

    A hair wash would be nice.

  5. Snazzy says:

    I’d be happy to wash his hair for him

  6. Valiantly Varnished says:

    It’s just too much product. Keanu is a Virgo – he is NOT walking around with unwashed hair lol. Keanu probably has incredibly thick but straight hair so if you put too product on it it will looked weighed down and slightly greasy. But he also probably pit a lot of product in it to keep it from flying around too much.

      my 17 yr old, who’s also a virgo and mixed race, has the same energy as this guy. Same face shape, hair type, body type, attitude. It’s really weirded me out, so I’m off Keanu but I wish him well.

    • jen says:

      Oh right, astrology. That explains it all.

  7. Chaine says:

    I think he is dying it. It looks a bit unnatural and lank which happens when people dye their hair black. He would do better to let his grays show!

  8. Jb says:

    Is it wrong that I’m hoping he finds a special equally chill lady and they have kids and a dog and he lives a quiet life away from Hollywood and occasionally pops up in movies and shows? I’m sure he’s content living the life he has but I kinda see him enjoying that kinda domestic life ya know?? Anyways I ride or die for Keanu and may the gods always keep this decent human safe from the destruction that comes with Hollywood..Amen! 😉

  9. Reece says:

    Meh. Team too much product. Dirty hair will look clean then go bad to worse. He consistently looks like this. Too much product.

  10. Grant says:

    Keanu’s hair does look a bit greasy in these pics, but it doesn’t offend me as much as Jason Momoa’s hair does. That man is admittedly fine as sin, he just looks like he needs to take a bath (although it’s gotten better now that he got that awful beard in check).

  11. Incredulous says:

    I thought the hair was for essaying Theodore “Ted” Logan, esquire? *guitar riff*

  12. lis says:

    perfect angel as is O:)

  13. Jerusha says:

    Here’s Keanu earlier that day at the Chinese Theater handprint ceremony-not quite as lank.

    I kinda like this look, but given how seemingly perfect he is in every other way, he can wear his hair any darn way he pleases.

  14. SM says:

    Yeah, probably a shower is in order but I still would. He is my forever vampire crush. As for him and Halle, I kind of think he is actively not looking for anything with co-stars, I remember Sandra Bullock gushing about him and how she had a crush on him while doing speed and then finishing with: I don’t know. Probably I wasn’t his type.

    • Jerusha says:

      Halle said he was her work crush. I always stanned for Keandra.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      I think they dated for a while, IIRC she mentions it in an interview from years ago where she stated that it didn’t last – she hinted that he doesn’t like commitment.

  15. Rae says:

    I would take him either way.

  16. Seeker542 says:

    I really admire Keanu as a person. Did anyone else see his recent interview on Colbert? Super humble, eloquent, remembers names of crew members and loves doggos.

    I think if I had to ship him with anyone, I’d love to see him with Tracee Ellis Ross. They would make a great “late life” couple.

    • Nev says:

      Keanu and Tracee!!!

      • Seeker542 says:

        Two chill people, age appropriate, longtime single, happy with themselves, Virgo + Scorpio. The main contrast is Tracee seems a little more extroverted while he’s definitely more introverted. They would be lovely together.

    • notasugarhere says:

      What about Octavia Spencer? She’s always giggly when she tells the story about Keanu helping her when her car broke down.

  17. SM says:

    Did you guys see him on the Stephen Colbert show? At the very end, Stephen asks: “What do you think happens when we die, Keanu Reeves?” Keanu takes a beat, considering and says: “I know that the ones who love us will miss us.” No matter the hair, he is the best.

  18. ikki says:

    angel as-is <3

  19. JanetDR says:

    I love me some Keanu, but Ian is looking rather fine too!

  20. serena says:

    No a ponytail would be horrible, while I would prefer he’d wash his hair he’s always hot.
