Sad Keanu is sad. But Keanu is an actor capable of such dynamism and range.

Here’s a guide to acting like Keanu.

Let this not be understood as a criticism of the third or fourth most awesome person in Hollywood.

Tumblrweed: Sad Keanu

Sad Keanu is one of my favourite memes. Did you know there’s a tumblog dedicated to photoshopped Keanu images? No. Well. Now you do.

There’s also this interview with Keanu where has has a little chat about the meme (see 3.24, via Time).

Cheer up Keanu day

The Keanu Reeves meme is gathering steam. Someone, somewhere, introduced this photo of Keanu looking very sad to the picture:

And the previously reported “Thank You Keanu” movement has become “Cheer up Keanu” day (Facebook Event).

Here’s the photo in various forms. Because this is what the collective power of the Internet produces… and here’s a sample.

Now if only Chuck Norris would send him a message of support.

Keen on Keanu

So Keanu Reeves is apparently a really nice guy. So says the Reddit forum, and it knows everything. This comment thread even spawned a website in his honour – Thank you Keanu Reeves.

This is the anecdote that gave birth to what could be a Hollywood meme to rival Chuck Norris facts.

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.
