Ha ha ha. I guess that "artless" aka artvandelay92 - having been ignored at KR topix (which, really? should tell one something, shouldn't it?)- felt compelled to share the non-original "thoughts" here. Just saw this had been posted on Topix a few days before it showed up here. That's hilarious, if only in a pathetic sort of way. Free advice, artvandelay92? avoid daylight, unless you like turning into stone.

Topix thread:
from "Art Vandelay
Clarinda, Australia"
"Even if he doesn't have the greatest conventional acting chops, Keanu has been one of the biggest joys to watch on screen for the past 30 years..."

Topix thread:


Not sure I follow you. Can you elaborate? Explain why it is an important part of the discussion here?
Also you'd need to link his blog post - can't reach it as it is now.

I'm referring to "artvandelay92" post here on p. 48, which we'd been discussing in this thread just above, where he says "This is a recent article that lovingly discusses Keanu's role as the king of unintentional comedy throughout his career, and the king of our hearts... http://hamcj.wordpress.com/2014/07/21/keanu-reeves/"

and previously posted the same article on topix and had no response there. Seems pretty straightforward, garden-variety trolling.

the topix post is http://www.topix.com/forum/who/keanu-reeves/TU4B7DT6S4TU7QDA4

I don't know that it's an "important part of the discussion here" but I do think we often discuss those who come to sites for appreciation of an actor and proceed to disrespect the actor and that person's fans. It's a phenomenon and it's pretty bizarre, in my opinion.

I've seen video of how gracious he is with fans who swarm him and take pictures, etc. But it makes me mad that people think they have the right to walk up to him and start snapping photos without so much as a greeting or permission request or anything. I have no legal basis for saying this since he's a public figure, but I feel it's ethically wrong to take someone's image without asking, or presume upon them in any other way. Then of course the jerk in this article felt he needed to show a world-famous guy who's boss. Yeah, you're a real winner, dude.

Yeah, that would be annoying. But maybe it is just me, the whole thing doesn't quite ring true, you know? I find it hard to imagine Keanu engaging in that particular way - telling someone that they're cool for not taking his picture. I mean, it's a bit and snippet and Luca is perfectly appropriate in posting it here. I just don't quite buy that this was an encounter that really happened.

More Reddit love:

aroundlsu: I just worked with him on a film called The Whole Truth. Everyday at lunch he came into the crew tent, picked up a serving tray, and had lunch with us. He walked around set alone and often just hung out in a corner going over the script. He's a lot different that most A-list actors I have worked with. ... Man you can tell when you are in the room with him that it's genuine. Of course he's an actor so he could be... You know... Acting. But I don't think so. You can tell the actors that really love it and care about the role and the actors that are just there to earn a pay check and get the fuck out.

megapaw: the family that he comes from is solid for real. I was going through a very difficult time in my life and his sister took me to a play. I was humbled and amazed how she treated people. I can say without any compunction, he and his family are good people.

Reddit is the only place that helps me hold on to my faith that people can see beyond the veil :) am glad so many have had such beautiful experiences. I am tempted to be jealous of the fact that i probably may not see him anytime in my life while these people have been able to but i am going to put aside by selfish fears and rejoice in the moment... Sometimes knowledge is also bliss i guess ;D

Ah, indeed one of my all time favorites too! He's soooo sexy in that one. *blush* I remember reading in an interview that Rachel Weisz said she is a big fan and she kept trying to kiss him, even when it wasn't mentioned in the script. Don't know if it's true, but if I was Rachel, I would've! :-)
