Look, let’s just cut straight to the point.
Keanu Reeves is the best actor alive and Hollywood absolutely does not deserve him.
From that time he took a multi-million dollar paycut so that The Matrix’s makeup and special effects artists could earn more money to that time when the actor entertained a planeload of his fellow stranded passengers, Keanu Reeves has made himself known as the nicest guy in Hollywood.
And this weekend, the world’s collective love and adoration for the 54-year-old Canadian grew even stronger.
Side note – Netflix have released a blooper reel featuring even more of Keanu Reeves’ hilarious improvisations. You can check it out below. Post continues after video.
The film, starring Ali Wong as Sasha and Randall Park as Marcus, follows two childhood friends and one-time college lovers who reconnect later in life. As their feelings for each other return and grow after meeting again as adults, the pair come across a number of obstacles – including none other than Keanu Reeves.
But the best part? Keanu Reeves was actually playing Keanu Reeves.
Well, a heightened caricature of himself at least…
From weeping over his meal at the dinner table to requesting a dish that “plays with time”, the cameo scenes are truly next level.
Here’s just some of the reasons why Reeves was hands down the best part about Always Be My Maybe:
1. The pretentious dinner scene.
The first time we see Reeves in Always Be My Maybe, he walks into a restaurant in the way we imagine he probably walks the earth in real life – in slow motion with all eyes on him.
Reeves, who is dating celebrity chef Sasha in the film, has a PDA-filled reunion with her before pretentiously requesting a dish for dinner that “plays with time”.
After being served his meal, alongside an actual audio recording of the animal he is eating, Reeves weeps over his dinner as he eats it.
