At this point, it goes without saying that Keanu Reeves is a good guy. But if you still need proof to believe it, he gave the ancillary profits from The Matrix sequels to the crew which reportedly netted them over US$40 million. Keanu, however, is also a lonely guy. The 54-year-old actor admitted it in an interview with The Jakarta Post.
During the interview, he begins speaking about the various characters he has played. While talking about Neo from the Matrix, Reeves explains, ‘I loved his search for answers. He’s a strong positive, moral, and ethical man, doing the best he can.’
Continuing, when Jakarta asked Keanu about his love life, and what love means in general for the star, his aww-inspiring (yes, I meant to type aww, not awe) response literally brought me to tears. Reeves explains,
‘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.’
Next, the post asks ‘You describe yourself as a lonely guy. Are you content with that?’
Keanu responds by saying, ‘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.
While his reply made my heart hurt a little, you know, thinking about one of the kindest people that are in the eye of the public in modern times, I have to hand it to him for replying so earnestly. And, honestly, perhaps he is better for it. As it appears that spiritually, holistically, anyways, that Reeves seems quite content, regardless of ‘being lonely.’
In the eyes of many, Reeves certainly deserves all the happiness he can obtain. A humble, genuine man who uses his influence and wealth to help others, he is an exemplary figure within the world of show business.
Needless to say, fans flocked to support Reeves’ after his interview with The Jakarta Post. Many took to Twitter to praise his sweet nature, while others declared their longing to spend time with such an amazing person.
