Keanu Reeves Fans Are Having Virtual Sex With His ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ Avatar, He Had the Coolest Reaction
Keanu Reeves is one of Hollywood’s major heartthrobs starting with the sci-fi comedy Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. His popularity only grew with movies such as The Matrix. He even starred in the successful video game Cyberpunk 2077, where he plays Johnny Silverhand. The marketing fully capitalized on Reeves’ involvement. Now, Cyberpunk 2077 players are modding the game to have sex with Reeves’ avatar and he has the best reaction to it.
Who is Keanu Reeves’ ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ character Johnny Silverhand?
Reeves’ Johnny Silverhand was the lead singer of the band Samurai before they broke up. Nevertheless, he’s still held in high regard as a rocker. Johnny’s also a military veteran who stood up against the corrupted NUSA government. He’s opportunistic and irrational, but he’s also a charmer who knows how to get what he wants.
Cyberpunk 2077 creator CD Projekt Red wanted players to stop modding the game to allow them to have sex with Johnny, despite their encouragement to tweak the game slightly as they would like. PC Gamer reported that the studio made an official statement on the matter to stop players from modding the game in this fashion.
“When it comes to models of real people whom we’ve asked to participate in the game, we kindly ask you to refrain from using them in any situation that might be found offensive if you don’t have their explicit permission,” CD Projekt Red stated.
Keanu Reeves responds to fans having sex with his virtual avatar
Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss appeared on The Verge YouTube channel to talk about The Matrix Resurrections. However, the topic of Reeves’ Cyberpunk 2077 avatar came up. The interviewer asked the legendary action actor if he was OK with gamers modding the game to have sex with his virtual avatar.
“Yes!,” Reeves responded. “Oh, my God, It’s always nice when it’s nice. Think of how much money is in porn, right? So you could not even have to be there and people could have digital sex with your digital avatar. What’s it called right now, For Members Only?”
“You could do a whole thing,” Reeves continued. “Oh my God, then you get the suit that’s probably made in Sweden or some German thing, then you’ve got the VR thing. Then they’ve got the data on you with your arousal metrics. ”
‘The Matrix Resurrections’ and ‘John Wick 4’
Reeves has some huge action titles hitting theaters. The Matrix Resurrections is his next project that is also the fourth installment of the franchise. The movie lands in theaters and on HBO Max on Dec. 22, which is just in time for the holidays.
Meanwhile, John Wick 4 will kick into theaters on May 27, 2022. There are no plans for a simultaneous streaming release date. However, Reeves fans will have the opportunity to see the Cyberpunk 2077 actor rock the screen in two big franchise movies coming in the near future.
