Keanu smile? … that look Reeves me cold
HAS Keanu Reeves fallen into the method acting trap?
The Matrix star was attending the premiere of his action flick The Day the Earth Stood Still, and from the frozen expression on his face, either he believes that time has stopped or his next role is with Madame Tussaud's.
Thankfully co-star Jennifer Connelly saved the day by drawing attention away from frozen-faced Reeves and his Johnny Depp-style whiskers. She dazzled in a beaded shimmer dress and an expression suggesting she didn't see dead people.
But the star of last night's event in New York was Jaden Smith, 10, who flashed smiles at hoards of film fans who braved the cold to catch a glimpse of their Hollywood heroes.
Little wonder the wild-haired actor has been chosen to front the remake of 80s classic, The Karate Kid.
