Keanu Reeves is a celebrity who has an envious fan following but did you know that even he fanboys over industry colleagues and had asked for two autographs from two of his colleagues. Reeves appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to participate in a round of ‘The Colbert Questionert’ – a game the host revealed Reeves himself influenced back in 2019 when he gave a heartfelt answer to what happens when we die.
During the segment this time, Reeves revealed that he has asked for autographs from two celebrities – Lou Reed and comedian George Carlin. However, he revealed that he had asked for Reed’s autograph for a friend but Carlin’s he wanted for himself. The actor explained that Reed’s autograph was not intended for him and said, “It was for a friend, and he was cool about it. It was like a little piece of paper and blue ink... it just said 'Lou Reed'."
However, he told Colbert that he got Carlin to give him an autograph when the two starred togther in 1989’s Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. Reeves said, “He wrote... I think it was 'Dear Keanu, F--- you'." A jealous Colbert admitted, "That's pretty great."
Reeves further said that what he thought was a personal note from Carlin wasn’t so personal after all. He said, “I always thought he just wrote that for me. And then I met someone else who said that he wrote the same thing to them! Anyway, beautiful.”
