Keanu Reeves just learned that the internet is obsessed with him! While talking to the press on the Toy Story 4 red carpet, Keanu was asked about his thoughts on being dubbed the internet's newest boyfriend, referencing the outpouring of love for the actor in the wake of John Wick 3 and his hilarious cameo in Always Be My Maybe.
But the actor had seemingly never heard of the term, saying, “I’ve been what? I didn’t know that… That’s wacky. The positivity is great. It’s really special how [Always Be My Maybe and John Wick 3] have been embraced.” Keanu has long been a subject of fan fever and, in the age of the internet, social media love. But with his bevy of projects hitting audiences this spring and summer, he seems to have reached new heights.
Although Keanu has been around since the 90s, his recent acts have made his the internet's golden boy. From videos of him buying grocery to him not touching women while taking photos with them make him the internet's heartthrob and there are chances, this obsession isn't dying anytime soon.
Keanu is about to get another wave of love for his work in Toy Story 4. He voices a toy known as Duke Caboom, a Canadian stuntman who rides a motorcycle. The actor shared on the red carpet that some of the toy’s physicality and hilarious tendency to strike poses on his motorcycle was inspired by his own ideas and enthusiasm while meeting with the team at Pixar. He calls his character a “showman” and a “daredevil,” but says he also has plenty of Pixar’s signature emotion. The film hits theaters June 21.
