Keanu Reeves Plays With Puppies While Answering Fan Questions

Are we in the Matrix? No.

Hi, I’m Keanu Reeves, I’m here with BuzzFeed to play with some puppies and answer some questions – thank you.

What is your secret for always staying down to earth? Well, I mean… gravity.

If you could time travel to any period in time, when would it be and why? I’ve always wanted to know, since I was growing up, who really wrote the plays of Shakespeare, so I wanna… I wanna be there at that moment when ‘Shakespeare – because I don’t think it was really Shakespeare; I’m an Edward de Verrean, so the Earl of Oxford… so I’d like to be there 1600s, ‘Shakespeare’ writing Hamlet.

What stunt are you most proud of? I don’t do stunts but I try to do as much action as I can. I would say that in the Matrix, the first Matrix (puppies yelp)- everybody get along! Say hi, communicate… alright, we’re good, and you’re eating my shoelace, okay, go ahead and eat my shoelace…

What was the craziest experience you had while filming John Wick? Craziest? Doing a gunfight on a horse on the streets of Brooklyn – that’s in Chapter 3 – that was pretty crazy… yep, keep going on the shoelace.

If you could choose any superhero or villain to play in the Marvel or DC comics universe, who would it be and why? I don’t know… when I was a kid I always wanted to play Wolverine, um, so Wolverine.

You are known for your love of literature. What are some books you can recommend and what’s your favorite genre? I’m gonna pick a book that I read recently – Overstory by Richard Powers, check that book out. (And I don’t have a favorite genre)

Do you think John Wick and Ted Logan would get along? Why not? Yeah, that would be an interesting conversation. Maybe they could talk about music

Do you share any similarities with your character John Wick ? We might share a kind of dry sense of humor; other than that I can’t really see…

How much training did you do for fight scenes and in John Wick? I did a lot of training and it was really fun. The Matrix – the first time was learning wire and kung fu and that was months and months and months and months. John Wick with judo and jujitsu and a lot more gun manipulation and there was lots and lots and lots and lots – I love doing action films, I love the training, I love being here as much as I can to create that relationship between the character and the audience; the puppies have all left, I’m all alone…

If you had to live in any of the films you’ve been in, which one would you choose? … can I visit a bunch of them? I don’t want to just be in one era – it’s like picking a puppy but I mean I guess, you know, eventually you’ve got to choose…well no you could take them all, I don’t know…

Can you tell us anything about your character in Toy Story 4? Yes! I play Duke Caboom, Canada’s greatest stuntman. There’s a lot of fun to do that film, it’s a cool character, it’s a wonderful story, Pixar’s great…

If you could only have one sandwich, forsaking all other sandwiches for the rest of your life, what would it be? Oh that’s a tough question – (to puppies) alright, play nice, go at it; what do you think? Right, the question, the sandwich question; I’m going to pick peanut butter and honey.

What advice would you give your 17 year-old self? I hate giving advice.

How did you discover your love for motorcycles? Riding them! They’re beautiful, riding a motorcycle is like being a puppy – isn’t it?

I have no more questions but I have puppies! Thank you very much for hanging out.

So the puppies that I got to meet today and you got to meet today are all available for adoption. Thanks for spending some time and if you go to see John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum  I hope you enjoy it – thank you!
