Keanu Reeves is Still Sad

Keanu Reeves is Still Sad

Keanu Reeves walks around the Meatpacking District in a jacket and jeans despite the 90 degree weather in New York City on Friday (July 9).

The 45-year-old actor, who was joined by a friend, still looked a little blue despite a massive internet effort to cheer him up a couple weeks ago.

On June 15, due to a recent photo of Keanu eating alone, a huge outpouring of love came in the form of creating a ‘Cheer Up Keanu Day’. Fans left endearing messages and creative photoshopped pictures depicting the actor in different scenes all in a effort to cheer up the Matrix actor. In case you missed it, here’s a hilarious video that pretty much summed it up.

    He’s not sad, he’s just sitting and eating, he looks like everyone else when they are eating alone in public.

    Maybe his patch beard is whats sad, yeah, that it! LOL

  • Blaze

    Tsk tsk, common JJ that’s kinda rude! the man doesn’t look sad at all. Maybe a bit unkept but that’s all really. Shame on u. Cut him some slack! And even if he is, being invasive won’t help. Love u Keanu!!!!!

  • CuteChef

    lol…that video was great..or maybe it’s the booze :P Anyway, love him. Have since I was 6 (that’s 21 years now). I remember saying I was going to marry “Ted” when I get bigger hehe. I’d love to see some happy pics of him. Just seems he’s been a pretty sad guy since 1999 (his stillborn baby daughter, followed by the death of her mother in April 2001). Hope happiness finds him soon.

  • Jonte

  • Keanu Rocks

    He’s probably not sad but the video makes me feel like holding his hand. Love him.

  • Joise

    @CuteChef oops, thought you said his mother, sorry. i just thought it was 3 deaths for some reason….

  • Jermaine

    That meme was hilarious.

  • Londoner

    I want to give him a hug or something <3 He always seems so incredibly shy in interviews.


    WE LOVE YOU KEANU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Tanya

    I wish he were my husband or bf.

  • jfc

    This guy does not age! Even with the beard his face looks the same it did 10/20 years ago!

  • Amelle

    Oh, I just love him.

  • BEAN

    I heard his long time girlfriend died in a car crash and his baby was born stillborn. I understand how that could change a person. I feel bad for him.

  • Khlo√©

    I just really want him to be happy.

  • KellStar

    Come back to Canada Keanu and we’ll brighten your day!

  • Kirsten

    I heard that too! I feel bad for Keanu. He seems like a nice dude.

  • sulis

    Oh, let’s “keanu” you & me Keanu!!!
    Indeed, i am with you.

  • ben

    Why do bad things always happen to good people?

  • Afrika

    He looks fine to me. Everyone is just overreacting.

  • Realistic

    Keanu has always been off beat (in a good way), unconventional and not caught up in the Hollywood look at me, I want attention crowd. I don’t think he is sad he is just kind of a introvert and seems like a person that ponders and reflects about a lot of things.
    He looks like anyone else eating food. What is he suppose to do take a bite, pause, start cheesing and smiling then take another bite lol. I do know I have always found him to be cute and intriguing.
    lol at this video

  • CuteChef

    He is a nice guy. I actually got the chance to meet him once, back in 1997. He was on tour with Dogstar, and the day before their show at the Odeon, they toured the Rock Hall in Cleveland. I was there with some out of state family friends. I was in shock to see him. The wife of the family friend just strolled right up to him dragging me along, tapped his shoulder and said “Excuse me, this is (my name) and she’d really like to meet you.” I shook his hand and felt like I couldn’t talk and was weak in the knees. I actually saw him in a few spots around the Rock Hall after that and he flashed me a smile each time. :D How can you not love Keanu?!

  • David

    I am a quiet introvert. I have always been this way. I used to be sitting around minding my own business or eating lunch by myself and people would ask me “What’s wrong?” for no reason. I am not shy I just prefer to be alone more than most people. I live alone and I prefer it this way. Don’t get me wrong I have a few friends but I am not really interested in people. I prefer to think about stuff in my own mind instead of engaging in mindless small talk with strangers. I have one close friend that I enjoy talking too because we share similar interests. I have had a few girlfriends but it seems like most women want LOTS of attention and they don’t like the fact that I can’t or won’t give it. One thing that annoys me is girlfriends want you to call them EVERYDAY. How much sh*t is there to talk about about every f*cking day?? LOl Sorry for the rant… Maybe Keanu is an introvert?? Oh yeah I hate at work when you see the same aholes everyday and they talk about the same boring sh*t day after day after day… drives me insane. I hate “Good Morning!!” from co-workers also. Annoying.

    LOL. Love the video. Love Keanu!!

  • Slig

    What happin he he in jail

  • lala

    what is this shit?its really stupid to assume anything from one picture…

  • JM

    I adore Keanu and this video makes me want to give him a hug. I had no idea he’d had so much tragedy in his life. I understand about the introvert thing. I’m that way too but it is nice sharing your life with someone special. Hope you find it Keanu. Peace.

  • . annab

    @24 David….I am the same way about wanting to be by myself alot. People have always had some rude comments to say to me regarding this and it’s annoying. There are times when I do feel sad about something and I want quiet but even during content times, I still want to sit alone when I feel the need.

  • theone

    I think he looks awesome and maybe he just wants the paps to go away. I would look that way if I were constantly being watched. It’s called “game face”. Love, love, love the Kman.

    P.S. Video was cute but uncalled fore. He’s not sad; busy!

  • dissident

    He can shave the sadness off pretty quickly.

  • boston61

    He always looks like a bum. I don’t get it. I think he thinks he is so devastatingly handsome that he has to play down his looks with that god awful beard.

  • jaye

    Oh Oh people are reading Keanu’s mind again. lol.

  • callmewhatever


    LMAO at your post David, you are awesome

  • callmewhatever


    He is devastatingly handsome! And of all the actors in his age group, he is aging the best and that includes over Brad Pitt.

  • boston61


    He looks like a bum.

  • Kary

    I love him, I can’t avoid it.

  • go sox

    Introverts to the extreme, like David, are not healthy mentally and psychologically. They don’t care about others and what they need, which is a basic human quality. Unfortunately, those kind of people usually die alone, without human or mental stimulation, without family or friends, without a life that God taught us to embrace. Its sad. Please get help. I’m not saying you need to be a party animal; but to be annoyed by people wishing you a nice day is just not healthy.

    Keanu is not like that. He has family and friends who he cares deeply about, and cares about the earth, the world, and humankind in general. He is quiet and “deep”, but happy and content, and does not shun human beings.

  • Brightside

    Ahhh….I want to hug him! Smile, Keanu, Jesus and the world loves you :-)

  • mailey


    but in seriousness, dont think he’s sad or alone just cause he eats by himself. just shows he’s a regular person and that’s he lives his life.

    keanu is a bad-a##, he doesn’t need some lame entourage!!

  • Daniel

    I like him but when I see a person who wears a jacket on a hot day while sporting a very unflattering beard, I have to think something is wrong.

  • tadow

    I like Keanu. I’m tired of people on other sites bashing him for being quiet or wearing a beard. It’s his face. And like mailey said, just because he’s not surrounded by a crowd of phonies doesn’t mean that he’s lonely. I have a lot of friends and family but Lord knows I do appreciate those moments when I’m alone to eat a sandwich and breathe fresh air.

  • Ginger

    Being surrounded and flock by people all the time, eating alone like this is gift… People eat alone all the time… and eating alone, you don’t have to smile and laugh… hahahaha… that will definitely be coocoo.

  • OhMahGawh

    Sad Keanu = Epic

  • dt

    Keanu seems like he’s always been a very independent spirit,, and a lone wolf. He’s not sad. That’s just the way he is. He’s introverted.

  • Asia

    With paparazzi following him everywhere and taking hundreds of pictures of him everyday, I don’t blame him that he is not smiling and waving at them. I would be upset too. I bet that when he is with his friends and family, he is more relaxed and open. He doesn’t seem depressed at all to me.
    How YOU would enjoy your breakfast if some guy was standing in front of you and taking your pictures? I don’t think you would be too happy about it.

  • Annette

    Love him so much! He is great actor.

  • TIO

    @go sox – I don’t think that David guy needs “help.” There is nothing wrong with being an introvert. Some of the best and most creative people who have ever lived were like that. He clearly states that he has friends, he just prefers to be alone. Again, nothing wrong with that.

  • selena

    Poor guy, i’ve just been reading on how hard his life has been. I just really want to give him a hug right now.
