Keanu's getting Buddha

by Kate Thornton


HOLLYWOOD heart-throb Keanu Reeves has become a Buddhist - a religious move that is helping him cope with the death of close friend River Phoenix.

Keanu, 29, took up the Eastern philosophy after filming the movie epic, The Little Buddha.

Now he firmly believes River will come back in another life. "I don't know where he is now, but I believe in reincarnation," says Keanu. He adds: "I think I'll come back as a cat."

Keanu and Phoenix, 23, were so close that, Keanu locked himself in his home for a week after the young actor died from a cocktail of drugs last October.
