Keanu Reeves didn’t know he was the internet’s boyfriend: ‘that’s wacky’

wenn36588524

Keanu Reeves is everywhere at present and I, for one, couldn’t be happier. He’s graced us with promotion for Always Be My Maybe, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, the Cyberpunk 2077 video game and now he’s doing promotion for his voice role as Duke Caboom in Toy Story 4 (which is getting incredible reviews, btw – I‘m so glad). During the red carpet for the TS4 premiere, Melody Chiu from EW/People TV seemingly revealed to Keanu that he was the internet’s current obsession. Since Keanu doesn’t have any social media accounts, he was surprised to hear this. Does he also not have a manager, agent or know anyone who’s been outside in the last year? Keanu is everywhere right now – how is this a surprise?

Obviously, watch the whole thing (it’s Keanu, duh) but Melody asks about being the internet’s boyfriend at the 2:17 mark:

His Internet Boyfriend response:

People are really going to embrace your (Duke Caboom) character. Also, Always Be My Maybe, people loved having you in that. And now you’ve been dubbed the internet’s boyfriend, how do we feel about that?

I’ve been what?

You’ve been dubbed the internet’s boyfriend. Everyone is just kind of gushing over oyu on the internet – you didn’t know that yet?

That’s, uh… that’s wacky. Well, the positivity, that’s great. It’s really special how John Wick was embraced. And working on Always Be My Maybe, Ali Wong, Randall Park just really – wonderful artists and people and it’s just really cool to get a chance to play with that.

Aw – that’s just the perfect answer we’d expect from our Internet Boyfriend! As I indicated above, when I read Keanu’s response, I wondered how the hell this could be news to him? But he does sound genuinely unaware of being dubbed Keanu the Dreamy. It also sounds as though he is at a loss for words on how to respond to that so in context, “that’s wacky,” comes across charming. Like, we don’t want our IB to respond, “Oh that crap’s just b*llsh*t anyway!” At the same time, if he’d rattled off some saccharine acceptance speech about how honored he was to be the object of everyone’s attention, we’d cry fake and move on to our next crush. Instead, he turns the whole thing into positive energy and makes it about the work and his fellow performers. I’m overplaying his wonderfulness for humor, but I really do think Keanu is the guy he appears to be. He’ll misstep, of course – I already have one friend side-eyeing him for coming out as an Anti-Stratfordian. I don’t believe in perfect people, but I think he’s a good guy. So if he wants to sum up my undying admiration for him as ‘wacky,’ works for me.

At the end of the clip, Keanu confirms his next project is Bill and Ted’s 3. Co-star Alex Winter confirmed he’s arrived on set so filming should start soon. Speaking of Keanu projects, I finally watched Destination Wedding with Winona Ryder. It’s not a great movie, but it scratches a few rom-com itches. I enjoyed it more than most because so much of it takes place in San Luis Obispo where I went to college. Winona and Keanu’s characters stay at The Apple Farm Hotel where I worked front desk and reservations. I even stayed in Millhouse B, which is the room in which Keanu’s character stays. So you best believe I’ve been telling everyone who’s listening that the Internet’s Boyfriend and I shared a hotel room.

In case anyone missed it last week’s episode of When Internet Boyfriends Converge:

Jennifer Aniston: Steve Carell is a silver fox now

wenn36584817

Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon have a new series for Apple TV in the works called The Morning Show. This sucker has been “in the works” for almost two years now, which is crazy to me. The show’s premise is behind the scenes of a of morning talk shows and will be more of a dramedy than a sitcom. I’m excited for it, I like Jennifer and Reese together and I like this format for them. I’m just surprised how long it took to put together. Jennifer started promoting the show – or, at least, she’s piggy-backing the promotion with her current less-than-exciting Murder Mystery with Adam Sandler – so I guess it’s actually going to air this year. Sounds like it was worth it too because the show has a really impressive cast. As Jennifer was promoting the show last week on The View, Vanessa Williams asked about the cast member that everyone ended up having a crush on and Jennifer said it turned out to be Steve Carrell – and that none of them expected that.

Jennifer Aniston is opening up about working with costar Steve Carell.

Aniston, 50, stopped by The Talk on Friday to promote her new Apple series The Morning Show which stars Carell, 56, and Reese Witherspoon.

“I heard there was a secret crush on one of your cast members that all of the ladies loved,” guest co-host Vanessa Williams told her.
Aniston nodded and said, “Yes. That was Steve Carell.”

“He’s like a silver fox now. He just came in, and no one expected that,” she continued. “Everyone was so cute. And he’s so shy, and fantastic.”

She cheekily added, “He gets better with age.”

Uhm, Jennifer – where have you been? We Celebitches have been on the Silver Fox Steve Train for a while now. I, personally, don’t think Steve just now got attractive, I‘ve always found him nice-looking man. But at the same time, I never found him this attractive before. For sure his hair is working all the right notes but I also think the lines on his face have made him a bit more rugged, which is my general aesthetic so mm’hmmm – *much* better with age.

Other cast members for The Morning Show include: Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Billy Crudup, Mark Duplass and Nestor Carbonell, whom I really enjoyed on Suddenly Susan. That’s a great line up. Plus, with the morning show format, that leaves the door open for several celebrity cameos. This means an increased chance of potential mini-Friends reunions (especially since Reese and Jennifer are already their own Friends reunion). I’m sure it will happen, they all pop up on each other’s shows. But personally, I don’t need a show reunion, I’m just happy for the real-life ones like this one Courteney posted for her 55th birthday:

Here is Jen telling us what we already knew about Silver Steve:
