Is it this text
http://www.gq-magazin.de/unterhaltung/stars/keanu-reeves-im-gq-interview
or this ?
http://www.gq-magazin.de/unterhaltung/stars/john-wick-interview-mit-keanu-reeves
or something else ? :)

if it's different than any of the above, please send me the scans, I'll ask my sister if she can translate them. (Currently she's working on two other interviews,so it will take some time, but eventually they will get translated.)

Later edit: looking at the title of the interview on one of the photos, I guess it's the text from the first link... please let me know.

Hi Luca, it's the first one.

GQ definitely has an annoying policy - first publishing extracts, teasing to buy the magazine and in the end they publish the complete version anyway. Well, lesson learned from my side.

okay, it goes into the translation queue :)

in a selfish way, I'm glad they publish the interviews online, this way I can read them too :) But nothing compares to the printed magazine in your hands...
For example, I bought the Vogue Hommes International March 2009 issue,in French, because it had not only an interview with KR (which I found later online in English...after I worked a whole day to translate it for the archive :D felt good when seeing my translation was pretty close to the original English version :D ) but mostly because it has the famous photos by Amanda de Cadenet... yes, they are online too, but... they look a thousand times better printed on that quality paper... different feel. Guess it's the collector in me typing :)
So, what I'm trying to say is, don't feel bad for purchasing the magazine.When we buy them, we send a message to the publishers that we want more of those covers, of those interviews. And if tomorrow the earth stood still and there would be no more electric power and we couldn't access the internet and our hard drives... we'd still have the magazines to read and look at :)
I guess in this digital world, we need a bit of analog nostalgia...

well, maybe - although I have gay and lesbian friends and once celebrated a friends birthday in a gay club in Zurich - I'm still too shy and conservative to buy these kind of magazines. I'm a straight cis-woman and I was quite embarrased when I opened this magazine.

However, I agree the feeling, the quality of the photos are definitely worth the money.

I've just finished scanning - quite tricky with a simple scanner and a stubborn magazine not exactly A4-size. As I don't want e-mail addresses published I 've sent the scans to Anakin and asked them to forward them to you.

Best, Taluthah :-)

I'm not at all sure that I'd call Vogue Hommes International a "gay magazine" - I think it's a fashion magazine - and there's not a single thing wrong with a "gay magazine" (like Details). And yeah, I'm straight (and Christian, if that matters) but not remotely interested in anyone else's sexuality except as it personally affects me OR if anyone's sexual orientation / gender identity is being threatened or oppressed in any way - when that happens, look out!

I'm not ENTIRELY sure that the cover, the pictures, the article DON'T "appeal" to pretty much everyone with a pulse. ahem.

well, for me it was just too much information. It's not my cup of tea.

This does not mean that I feel entitled to hate or oppress anyone who loves such stuff. It's just not for me.

Taluthah - I received the scans, thanks so much !
Forwarded them to my sister, together with the link to the online article. The interview will get translated, but it will take some time; my sister is a German and English teacher and she teaches both at an after school and provides classes for IT people, through a foreign languages school, so her schedule is rather busy...
But she was very pleased to read your appreciation of the interview she translated :) and promised me she'll do a good job with this one, too.
We just need to be patient...

you are most welcomed.

I feel a little bit ashamed as at least German is my mother tongue. But I never feel satisfied with my own translation - they sound Gerlish or Engeutsch but never real English or real Deutsch :-\

Maybe she can make it into an assignment for her students. ;)
