Maria, I don't think Keanu has ever been ashamed of his looks. He's very modest when talking about his physical appearance, but he knows and has probably always known that he's *way* above average.

He did have a tendency, back in the day, to let his hair hang in front of his face. But that was pretty normal for guys with longish hair. It made them look dramatic and rebellious, y'know. ;-)

Acting wise, Zhou Xun is the best actress out of the three. Zhang ZiYi is the prettiest (especially in Westerners' eyes). I can hardly imagine Gong Li in this kind of role.

The "Matrix" star Keanu Reeves is busy looking for a female lead for his Kung Fu movie "Man of Tai Chi" in Beijing and Hong Kong right now, The New Express reports.

Josie Ho, daughter of the Gambling mogul Stanley Ho, was recently spotted having a meeting with Keanu Reeves. Other big names, including "The Sorcerer and the White Snake" star Eva Hung, Mou Girl Zhou Dongyu and Crystal Liu are also on Reeves' shortlist.

Some reports have indicated that Reeves is looking for someone "not that beautiful but with the spirit of the orient."

Meanwhile, he also auditioned 10 other Hong Kong actors for cameo roles in his movie such as Bernice Liu, Ti Lung, Chow Chun-Wai and Michael Tong.

Casting auditions should be concluded before the end of 2011, according to Reeves's schedule.

With an investment of nearly 200 million RMB from Village Roadshow and the China Film Group, "Man of Tai Chi" will mark the first time for Reeves takes the helm as director. Chinese Kung Fu master Yuen Woo-Ping will choreograph the movie. Chen Hu, the Kung Fu coach for Reeves, will perform as the lead character while Reeves will play against him as a villain.

The movie will start shooting in February 2012 on the Mainland, Hong Kong and Macau.

Unfortunately, Our Man doesn't have a history of trying to look "hot". I wish he'd make an exception to the rule at least once (ONCE!!!) in his career, but I won't hold my breath waiting for it to happen.

But yea, let's imagine him as a hot villain with a devilish glint in the eye and a wicked little half-smile. In bed, mostly uncovered.

I do not agree Inkhuldra. He often looks hot to me. What do you imagine would be hot?
@maria thanks for that conversion. I am thinking his Company Films will be producing too?

Getting to choose your female lead in your own film that you direct. Pretty cool for a street kid from Canada. Take that, Hollywood!

Hotness is in the eye of the beholder...

Arya, I definitely agree that he looks hot. My point is that he doesn't *try* to look hot, he just *is*. I was amazed when I saw the photo set that Amanda de Cadenet took at his house, because that was him putting some effort into looking hot. I almost had a heart attack because it was so unexpected. :-D

OK I can go with the idea that he does not try to look hot, he just is hot. Yeah, that's it. But he is doing his level best to appear as cool as possible in his acting. Of course within the parameters of honestly portraying the characters.

Arya quoth:

I agree -- I would definitely like to see him continue to appear cool and honest.

I must say, though, that I'd love to see him do so while wearing nothing but a towel -- I have a very small one that I'd be more than happy to lend him.
