Keanu Reeves is clearly back in the spotlight …or perhaps he never left…and he has a new title to show for it now! The internet’s newest boyfriend and Toy Story 4’s actor was completely shocked to learn of the internet’s growing obsession with him, as for being named “the internet’s newest boyfriend” his reply was ….. “That’s, uh, that’s wacky,” and then he added “Well, the positivity’s great.”
Well if that’s not a resurgence in popularity, we don’t know what is! Reeves had been a 90’s icon, and if we felt that his star has slightly dimmed …well we’re just mistaken. His brooding looks, mysterious demeanour and equally mystifying roles, while still maintaining his humility and humanity,, all of these combined have earned him the undying love of his fans. And it’s only natural that his fans would rush to put him on a pedestal.
In his recent project Toy Story 4, Reeves plays a “daredevil, motorcycle-obsessed toy called Duke Caboom”. The cartoon clearly inspired the actor to create a few real-life poses that brought the character to life and were actually put in the film. While the toy character may not look anything like Reeves but he feels that the “physicality made it into the character.” Quite a detour from his recent roles as John Wick; Reeves explains that Caboom is not just about the poses, there are actually a few life lessons to be learnt and a few regrets along the way.
A recent tweet that went viral talked about how Reeves is never seen to touch any women when posing for pictures, and that was another thing the fans found endearing about him. While some tweets joked that “Lol Keanu ain’t taking no chances.”, others replied that this only shows how considerate and respectful he really is.
So the internet’s newest boyfriend is not a label to be taken lightly. The actor with the action-packed career, is truly one decent man. Considerate and respectful, does his own groceries, and wears leather jackets and rides bikes …well if that ain’t the vision of anybody’s dream boyfriend then what do we know!!
