It seems that gentlemen do not prefer to be blond. Following our story yesterday that Irish-born actor Colin Farrell is hiding under a woolly hat after a disastrous home peroxide job, Keanu Reeves is, it seems, resisting attempts to make him a blond bombshell.
Executives on Reeves' next film "Constantine", which starts shooting in September, are pushing for the Speed actor to dye his naturally dark locks. "Keanu has tried on various blond wigs and thinks he looks absolutely stupid", says our source.
Reeves has reportedly told bigwigs on the movie that he refuses to lighten up and the matter is apparently at stalemate.
