In recent years, he repeatedly went viral on the internet for several things. These include him being the “internet’s boyfriend,” a term netizens’ coined for him because of his kind, generous, and “respectful” personality.
After his widespread distinction, he, also, went viral last year because of his shocking interview. As it happened, he gave the most “profound” and “beautiful” thoughts about death, according to Cheat Sheet.
He thinks this will happen after death
Speaking to The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Keanu Reeves discussed a few important details about his project, Bill and Ted Face the Music. He touched on the subject of “mortality” and death in relation to the film’s plot.
After sharing the details of the production, Colbert moved on to asking him a “heavy question.” He asked the John Wick actor what he thinks about the events that will happen after death.
Although the audience seemingly took it as a “witty” and funny question, the actor answered it directly. He said that the “ones who love us will miss us.” Following Keanu Reeves’ response, Colbert and the rest of the audience went in total silence, as they, reportedly, pondered on the “profound” remark.
