What makes Keanu Reeves so popular

Eight reasons Keanu Reeves is the man of our life

Recently, Keanu Reeves showed up for the first time with his partner Alexandra Grant. Honestly? We're a little jealous! Because we've been seriously in love with Keanu Reeves for three decades. Here is why.

You can argue about taste, but hardly anyone will argue that Keanu Reeves is a great guy. At least not if you like men who are not only good-looking, but also smart, versatile and somehow mysterious. You can already see that we are not a bit objective. Not convinced yet? Then please read on:

1. He ages with dignity

In contrast to Sauf-Johnny or Botox-Brad (also drinks by the way) Keanu Reeves behaves like a man who still has all the slats on the fence even after the midlife crisis. At least that's what you believe, because overall you don't hear much from him - unless it's about his work. Not to mention the fact that he is 53 and just as attractive as he was 33.

2. He is an all-rounder

Not that you love someone more just because they can do a lot, but Reeves is a real ace in very, very many things. He's a pretty versatile actor, produced documentaries, directed, played bass in the bands "Becky" and "Dogstar" and sang in the background, owns a company that makes motorcycles, has also written a book and has recently published art books (see also point 6). Impressive, isn't it?

3. Those eyes ...

Those super dark, oh, so expressive eyes. Who seem not only warm-hearted but also somehow wise to look into the world. You know, those beautiful, mocha-brown Keanu Reeves eyes that you wouldn't turn down a wish. If you also know that in 1999 he lost his daughter a month before the birth and almost two years later also his ex (the mother of this child) in an accident, that his father left the family early, was a drug dealer, and was in prison for a long time and that his sister had cancer, those eyes tell you a lot more.

4. He is totally unpretentious (and still beautiful)

There are hardly any large portraits of him or photos of him on the red carpet. And when he does, he presents himself with unwashed hair and a shaggy beard. Strangely, Keanu Reeves doesn't seem a bit neglected, but somehow casual, personable and natural.

5. Have you ever seen "Dangerous Surf"?

That cop who surfs and is just amazing at the same time never gets out of your head afterwards. Of course he has also made some very strange films ("The day the earth stood still", for example), but somehow he even gave them a certain depth, something ethereal, serious. Otherwise we know him as the incomparable "Neo" from Matrix and as the breathtaking "Constantine". Regardless of whether he embodies "Jack" in Speed ​​or John Wick in the film of the same name - somehow he always manages to give even the simplest event a very special dignity, even if his character was originally designed to be very irrelevant.

6. The intellectual

For a long time, evil tongues said Keanu Reeves was a bit stupid and only ever had one expression on his face. Probably because of his character in "Bill and Ted's Crazy Journey through Time". This is of course nonsense: the 55-year-old can recite Shakespeare sonnets by heart and has read all seven parts of "In Search of Lost Time" by Marcel Proust. So he can't be that stupid. Not to mention the fact that he wrote the book "Ode to Happiness" and recently founded a company that publishes art books, "X Artists' Books". To ask?

7. He is social and humble

The Hollywood star is known for donating large sums of money to charity organizations, although he has never made it public. He has emphasized several times that he does not care about money otherwise. That he takes the subway to work and is philanthropic is a given. Colleagues keep emphasizing how humble and friendly he is to everyone on the set. There are also stories circulating that he gave a higher double-digit million amount of his fee so that everyone could get paid appropriately when filming "Matrix". Apart from that, he is said to have regularly distributed food and drinks to homeless people and has already driven a helpless woman with a car damage many miles home. And these are just excerpts from Keanu's good deeds ...

8. His name

Of course it's all just smoke and mirrors, but "Keanu" means "cool breeze over the mountains" in Hawaiian. Huh. This man's first name is even pure poetry.
