Keanu Reeves Is Completely Oblivious of His Huge Fan Base Claims His ‘Bill & Ted’ Co-Star
Keanu Reeves is apparently oblivious to his own popularity. The John Wick star is in the middle of a career revival and easily has one of the largest fan bases in Hollywood. But per his Bill & Ted Face the Music co-star, Samara Weaving, Reeves is not aware that he is approaching legendary status online.
Is Reeves really oblivious of his huge fan base?
Weaving plays the part of Bill’s (Alex Winter) daughter in the upcoming movie and claims that Reeves did not use a smartphone on the set of the movie. This implies that Reeves has no idea what’s being said about him online.
“I don’t think he knows! I don’t think he’s aware,” Weaving shared. “He’s so humble and so sweet. I don’t think he’s aware of at all.”
Over the past few years, Keanu Reeves has earned the moniker of the “internet’s boyfriend,” yet Weaving does not think the actor has ever heard about it.
According to Yahoo, Weaving added that she never saw Reeves use a phone and complimented him for being such a fine gentleman — which is exactly how we imagined Reeves would be in person.
The new Bill & Ted film is set close to 30 years after the sequel. The movie follows the titular characters as they craft a song that will save the future of the universe.
The film will also feature a new villain, played by Anthony Carrigan. We do not know too many details about Carrigan’s character, other than he will be the main antagonist. Filming for the movie started back in June and wrapped up a few weeks ago.
Weaving talks ‘Bill & Ted’ expectations
Given Keanu Reeves’s popularity, Weaving is afraid that the expectations might be too high for Bill & Ted Face the Music. The actress admitted that she doesn’t like to think about the movie’s release because it causes her too much anxiety.
Weaving, of course, hopes that fans love the film, especially since it has been decades since the last movie in the franchise, Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey.
When it comes to working with Reeves and Winter, Weaving had nothing but good things to say about her co-stars. She also had a blast on set and hopes that fans are satisfied by the end product.
Bill & Ted Face the Music sees the return of Keanu Reeves as Theodore “Ted” Logan and Winter as William “Bill” S. Preston, Esq. The movie also features William Sadler (Death), Brigette Lundy-Paine (Billie Logan), Kid Cudi, and Jillian Bell (Dr. Taylor Wood).
There is no telling if the movie will match fan expectations, but we cannot wait to see what Reeves and Winter have in store.
Reeves has been one of Hollywood’s biggest stars for quite some time, though his celebrity has gotten an extra boost in recent years. Fans have even dubbed Reeves’s resurgence as “the Keanaissance.”
This year, Keanu Reeves starred in a handful of films, including John Wick 3, Toy Story 4, Always Be My Maybe, and the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077. He also finished filming Bill & Ted Face the Music, making him of the busiest celebrities in the world.
But starring in movies is only part of why Reeves has gained iconic status. Fans have also fallen in love with Reeves because he seems very down-to-earth and relatable.
The Constantine star is also a master in martial arts, a legitimate heartthrob, a hero in the gaming world, and a likable geek. In all, Reeves has transcended acting and become an internet sensation.
