The Internet has a never-ending cycle of memes. Sometimes, the source of these memes are anger, hatred, ridicule, etc. but we are not talking about negative emotions today. We are, in fact, talking about someone who made the internet fall in love with him.
Yes, you guessed right. Keanu Reeves is our star today. All of a sudden, this matrix guy is all over the internet and everyone is officially in love with him!
According to viral meme page Chad Mojito’s Shitposting And Senseless Drivel Empire, he’s actually cooler than Chuck Norris.
Worldstar Hip Hop posted this meme showing Keanu respecting women’s personal space (unlike a certain presidential candidate):
One meme page lets their posts speak for themselves!
But there are solid reasons behind all this Keanu love rather than him just existing. He is actually a pretty good dude. Here are eight of many reasons why he is loved by everyone right now.
#1. In his most recent interview, he expressed some deep and profound thoughts that left Stephen Colbert speechless. Keanu was talking about what happens after death.
#2. Keanu has been secretly running a foundation to help kids with cancer by funding hospitals.
“This Hollywood superstar is so unpretentious that he’s actually only talked about it one time and in an interview with a women’s magazine who had an inside track and asked him about it.”
#3. Keanu is something of a self-help guru.
#4. He treats the blue-collar workers of the sets he works in like family! (Reddit user b02dd2)
“Back in the late 90s and fresh out of college I got my first job as an assistant prop designer on the set of Chain Reaction (Keanu was a supporting actor with Morgan Freeman). EVERY DAY for the last few weeks of filming, Keanu treated the stage hands and “grunt workers” (including myself) by taking us out for free breakfast and lunch. He was genuinely a very nice guy to work with.
Since then, I’ve worked on about 30 different sets and have never met an actor as generous and friendly as him. Most actors I’ve seen and worked with are total douches who always think they are better than us. Keanu on the other hand, at the very least, was socially approachable and definitely kindhearted.
That was one example (that involved me directly), but (on the same set), I remember him going out of his way to give my friend a ride to the repair shop to pick up his car… I’ll write more as I remember, but its been a while.”
“A family friend builds movie sets, doesn’t design, is one of the poor dudes that just builds. Anyways he worked on the set for the Matrix and Keanu heard about family trouble he was having and gave him a $20,000 Christmas bonus to help him out. He also was one of the only people on the set that genuinely wanted to know peoples names, would say hello and mean it, and would talk to people as they were his peers and not below him just because they were practically making nothing to build a set. I’ve never heard anyone say Keanu is douche, seems like the nicest person in Hollywood from second-hand experience.”
#6. It looks like wealth and fame do not matter to this cute guy. Despite being a millionaire and a Hollywood star, he treats regular people like human beings. Paparazzi caught him hanging out with a homeless guy in LA some years ago.
#7. He is a gentleman. Period.
“You mean romantic love? You know, I’m the lonely guy. I don’t have anyone in my life. But if it does occur, I would respect and love the other person; hopefully, it’ll happen for me.”
Think I just fell in love with this guy all over again!
