Keanu Reeves Articles and Interviews Archive


sweet november. hardball. the lives and deaths of jennifer and ava.

With the global success of the first-Matrix, and in the boom of the Internet age when most newspapers started moving online and new entertainment websites started sprouting up, this period saw a sudden influx of Keanu-related articles on the web. It was also one of the busiest periods of Keanu's career – five films (six, if you include the Dogstar cameo in Me & Will) were released in 2000 and 2001, to differing levels of success.

Meanwhile, as the Matrix sequels went into pre-production, Keanu's life was interrupted by the stillbirth of his daughter, Ava Archer Syme-Reeves. The tragedy was followed shortly after by the death of Ava's mother, Jennifer Syme, in a car crash.
