Keanu Reeves may have started his career way back in the early ‘80s, but at the age of 54, he is far from retiring from the limelight. In fact, in a matter of just one month, he was able to re-establish himself in the industry as a true icon. The third installment of the John Wick franchise, John Wick 3: Parabellum was such a massive hit that it knocked Avengers: Endgame from its number one spot for a full three weeks. His cameo appearance in the Ali Wong and Randall Park’s Netflix rom-com, Always Be My Baby was so surprisingly hilarious that it gained viral popularity on social media, so much so that the chances of coming across a Keanu meme increase exponentially with every minute spent on Facebook or Twitter.
Keanu also shocked audiences with his hilarious portrayal of the quirky character, Canadian Duke Caboom, in the highly anticipated and recently released Toy Story 4. Lastly, the recent announcement that he will be participating in CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 as the central mo-cap character, Johnny Silverhand, has caused great excitement among Xbox E3 fans. People can’t help it: everyone is falling in love with Keanu all over again. And while very little is known about this secretive artist, we have made it our mission to tap all the best and most reliable sources to collect these fascinating facts every fan of Mr. Reeves should know.
He Is Full of Confi-Dance
You read that right: the man behind seriously badass, iconic film characters like John Wick, Neo, and Jack Traven, is actually a ballroom dancer. Aside from motorcycles (this guy actually has his own shop), Keanu is also passionate about ballroom.
The graceful star admitted to taking dance classes during an interview on The Graham Norton Show back in May of 2019. The reason? Quite simple really: he thought it sounded like fun! He also shared that he got a strange kind of high when he first did the waltz, describing the experience as thrilling, amazing, and quite spectacular. And to that, we say: whatever makes you happy, Keanu!
