2009 was another lull in Keanu's career. His professional life saw only the release of indie film The Private Lives of Pippa Lee and minor involvement as the producer for Spärhusen, a fictional Swedish band in the webseries Easy to Assemble – where Keanu wears a blond wig, two layers of shades, and makes whale noises.

Meanwhile, a woman named Karen Sala sued Keanu for a few dozen million in retroactive child and spousal support, claiming that a couple of decades ago he had disguised himself as her husband and fathered her four children. Keanu claimed he had never met her, but conceded to a paternity test and was deemed not to be the father after all.

Later in the year, Keanu participated in the 2009 Toyota Pro/Celebrity race and took 1st place in the celebrity segment.
