Keanu Learns He’s The Internet’s Boyfriend, And His Adorable Reaction Goes Viral

There was a story floating around the internet, that has since been debunked, that Keanu Reeves was a lonely guy looking for love – well, even if he wasn’t looking he found it – from the internet. After his starring role in John Wick 3 and his cameo appearance in Always Be My Maybe, the internet rediscovered its passion for the Canadian actor and dubbed him its ‘boyfriend.’

At the premiere of Toy Story 4, a reporter from People magazine asked the famous actor what he thought about the new ‘relationship,’ and his adorably oblivious response to this confusing question has only made his fans love him more.

Reeves was on the red carpet for the Toy Story 4 premiere, in which he plays a daredevil, motorcycle-obsessed toy called Duke Caboom, when a reporter from People magazine approached him. Eager to address the internet’s obsession with the well-mannered actor, she asked about his title as its ‘boyfriend.’

The down-to-earth actor responded with adorable confusion to the question. Actors are used to fans shipping relationships with other actors but with the internet? Not so much.

She tried to clarify her question by explaining that lately, people had been “gushing” over the actor again. Really exploding on the Hollywood scene since the 1990s people have re-awoken their passion for Reeves due to his most recent roles and stories about his humble and generous, even being a world-known famous person.

He found the title to be uh “wacky” but was appreciative for all the support, and said that “the positivity’s great.”

Reeves dethroned Avengers: Endgame at the box office with John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum. He is the voice behind Duke Caboom, the stuntman toy in the upcoming Toy Story 4. He caused a hullaballoo at E3 after he announced he’ll be in the Cyberpunk 2077 video game. And then there is his delightfully, hilariously exaggerated cameo as himself in Netflix original comedy Always Be My Maybe.

Reeves was particularly excited about his upcoming role in Toy Story 4, which debuts June 21st, and told People magazine, “The character’s so full of life,” he added. “He’s a showman, and he’s a daredevil. So when he’s on the bike, I was just — like, he keeps doing poses, you know, and he can’t stop. They put it into the film, so it was nice.”

The interview sparked an outpouring of even more love for the humble actor

Keanu Reeves is obvs a wonderful human being, I am just upset that the basic decency and niceties that he demonstrates every day of his life aren't the norm. I am para phrasing here but the lead singer of Idles (an amazing band BTW) said something that really hit home to me, it was something in the lines of 'It is all of our responsibility to ensure that every other member of society can enjoy a prosperous and happy life'. Live by that, if others can't, don't resort to hate, if you do they've won. Win with friendship, win with love, win with acceptance. It doesn't matter if you are a Christian, a Muslim, a Jew, an Atheist, at the end of the day you are a Human on this tiny beautiful rock that doesn't care what you believe in. If you are Christian, that volcano will kill you, and it will if you are Sikh. Believe in whatever you want, but never, ever, hate anyone for what they happen to believe in.

"...at the end of the day you are a Human..." - I couldn't agree more, Simon. It's sad there's a need to reminds ourselves to just be KIND to each other but, at the same time, quite humbling and very needed.

I admit it. I totally adore him. Kind hearted, generous, funny, and not remotely self centered despite his fame.
