Keanu Reeves Articles and Interviews Archive

( 1986 - 1990 )


This is possibly my favourite part of the archive: the articles and interviews written before The Anu got famous, detailing his early work trying to make it in Hollywood. He was a lot more open and spontaneous in interviews then, and some of the best interviews took place in this time period. Plus, there is the awesome foreshadowing that can be very, very funny when looked at in hindsight. Like all those critics touting him as the great new talent to look out for; compared with what critics say about him now, the difference is amazing. And hilarious.

...I'm only writing these introductory paragraphs because otherwise the page doesn't look as cool. Admittedly, few things look cool in the presence of Keanu, who tends to be cooler than most other things. Except maybe liquid nitrogen, which is really, really cool. However, some detractors insist that Keanu is not cool, but hot, especially in the summertime. This has made a lot of people very confused. Such is the nature of the universe: things in it are confusing, and that's why we have tea.
