  1. Does no one ever talk about him in Babes in Toy land??? He sings kinds SONGS!!!!! HOW IS THIS NOT BEING TALKED ABOUT!

  2. Todos gostam desse cara …….é difícil não gostar dele rsrrs como isso é possivel kkkkkk #alllovekeanu

  3. so they got money from coka cola to do this or what? coca cola knows reeves are hot atm, and to put cocs cola with reeves on prime time like this.. oh well

  4. my mom's friend dislike him and even said she is not interested in the john wick trilogy. i asked her why and she said he always tries to be cute.. i believed her until i visited their house and saw keannu posters.. man…

  5. what da hell is the Devil doing next to Constantine? And the Devil is a nihilist? He doesn´t believe in himself?

  6. Message for Zoubir Faouzi who commented about t shirt and suit….Uh? This was already a style in the 1980's like Miami Vice. So it is already OK for you to wear it but with pants and not a transparent speedo or glow in the dark speedo. Stay safe and don't be a hypocrite offline and online.

  7. Keanu is so cool and funny… he should be person kids are looking at, and wanting to be a like… just normal person and yet very successful.

  8. Its amazing to watch Keanu being uncomfortable in front of crowd and even James as the host. But as soon as he turns to Peter Stormare he gets way more relaxed. He literally has a switch, for people he trusts and appreciate, and those who are just audience who sees him as a star and not as a private person.
