Keanu Reeves has made a triumphant return to the forefront of the film industry with the release of the fourth installment of ‘John Wick,’ one of the most successful action franchises in recent times. Unlike the commercial disappointment of ‘Matrix 4’ in late 2021, his new film quickly became one of the most profitable in recent days, and it is expected to finish the week among the top box office earners in the United States and the United Kingdom.
The 58-year-old Hollywood star has been busy with an intense promotional tour but has not limited himself to discuss his latest work in the interviews he has given so far. In fact, in his recent conversation with People, the actor temporarily set aside his usual discretion to answer a series of very personal questions. Without feeling compelled to do so, he made a direct reference to his current partner, artist, and sculptor Alexandra Grant, recalling the last moment of peace and happiness he enjoyed.
“Just a couple of days ago, with my little bear. We were in bed, connected. We couldn’t stop smiling and laughing like children. It felt fantastic. It’s simply great being with her,” he answered, revealing his more endearing and romantic side. The star of films like ‘Speed’ and ‘Constantine’ also spoke about his spontaneous side and the rare moments when he lets himself be carried away by the rhythm of the music. “The last time I danced in public was at a friend’s wedding about eight months ago. Sometimes I’m the first on the dance floor, and other times they have to drag me, depending on the song and the moment,” he shared.
The Canadian artist, born in Beirut, Lebanon, also portrayed himself as a nature lover, reminiscing about his last trip to Japan. “I arrived with quite a bit of jet lag, so I went to the outskirts of Kyoto to watch the sunrise. Those moments are wonderful, and you have to stop and think: ‘Isn’t it simply fabulous to be here?'” Keanu recalled. The actor has taken up chess in recent times but admits he still lacks technique and practice. “I’ve been playing chess. It’s very competitive, and no one starts a game thinking they’re going to lose. If you really don’t know how to play, you think you’re a master, better than you are. I know I’m terrible,” he joked.
