Keanu Reeves: the internet boyfriend.
Last year, the internet's new generation found out about Sandra Bullock, which it was so fun to realize that we are getting older – especially after the Bird Box release. That's when we started to catch up that the Gen Y was crossing between the Gen Z. Why suddenly Ms. Bullock is out at the spot again? She's been around since Foreeeever. Over time, a new "Star Was Born". His name? Keanu Reeves.
Reeves has been one of the Hollywood's faves and obviously one of the kind hearts 💖 favorites too – especially because he always carry an enigmatic vibe with him. Maybe it was his shoulder emo hair, the sweetness with literally aaaany kind of people or stuff around him. Or even the fact that it's 2019 and his skin looks like if he's is still in 1994 – literally perfect, fresh & k-beauty setted.
Between all those amazing facts, we decided to select our 6 favorite Keanu Reeves moments. Enjoy the ride. 👽
1. He has its own motorcycles collection.
After we discover about his love for motorcycles we can't stop to imagine ourselves riding with him through the Cali sunset, pretending that we're in a Lana Del Rey music video. Why Reeves? When he's not on set, he's taking motorcycles trips with his friends around the 🌏. Besides that, in 2011, he founded with Gard Hollinger, the Arch Motorcycle Company, a high-end custom American motorcycle manufacturer. Amazing right?
2. He's the star of the Saint Laurent’s Fall 2019 menswear campaign.
When the shoot of the campaign hit the internet, I stared the b&w pictures for hours. Wearing the coolest black leather aviator jacket with a shearling collar. The whole campaign is so fantastic because his mystery and glory are there for us to celebrate.
3. We found out that he would be a part of the game Cyberpunk 2077.
The closest that some of us ever got of being a gamer was when The Sims was launched and we just never stop playin'. But spotting Keanu Reeves in full CGI might be a good excuse to come back to this world. He shared that he would be playing a role in CD Project Red next game during Microsoft Xbox E3 2019 press conference. The game happens in a futuristic dystopia with mega corporations that now is running a nation where the federal government has collapsed. 🚧💿🛠
4. Somebody created a Twitter account dedicated to his daily routine.
The @keanuthings acc is pure ✨pop perfection✨ and just like the bio says, it's "Your #1 Source for Keanu Reeves Doing Things" and we are obsessed with it. You can spot him doing literally anything u could imagine: drinking some beer, communicating telepathically with a goat, being handsome or basically having an existential crisis🤷♂️. Your choice.
5. He's a P O E T. 🖍
Reeves got two books of poetry launched. One went published in 2011, a collab with the artist Alexandra Grant. The "Ode to Happiness", was a limited edition book that brought poems from Keanu with illustrations from Grant. Later on, in 2016, they made another collab 📝📝📝 This time, with the book "Shadows" - which was a similar art project.
6. Matrix 4 💊💊💊 is happening and we're freaking out.
On August 20, Warner confirmed while we're writing this article (the power of mind is so fantastic, thank you "The Secret"😂) that another sequel of the franchise "Matrix" is about to be produced and our loved Keanu is confirmed in his iconic role as the hacker Neo. For those of you who don't know nothing about the movies (we're praying for you, seriously) go now to some streaming service and let your mind be blown.
The impact on the "Matrix" and hacking culture it's on since its first release in 1999 and it's still present: we can spot it during the runway shows like Balenciaga or simply on the internet culture of people who rather stay inside of their own bubble than face the hard reality of life.
