Cheer Up Keanu Reeves Day?

Is that necessary? Seriously, is that really necessary? I'm sure even a lot of the non-Keanufans out there, and even a bunch of the anti-Keanu crowd, have caught on to the new craze out there ... and maybe even to the fact that June 15th has been designated Cheer Up Keanu Reeves Day. o_O

Apparently, the man himself doesn't get it - and whoever thought he would doesn't know the first thing about him - and while it is so nice to see him finally getting some respect and appreciation, I don't entirely get it myself either. Sure, he's had a lot of crap happen in his life. I mean, a lot. (Which is all now being dragged up again too ... how much will that cheer him up, I wonder.) But right now I really think he needs cheering up less than he has basically ever needed it. At least professionally speaking he is doing so good now, better than ever ... Henry's Crime is looking great, Passengers is definitely going to happen, probably Jekyll too, and most importantly he's moving into the production side of movie making which IMO is the most natural step he could take. As for his private life, who can say, but Kim seems to be doing OK, and that's absolutely the most important thing. He looks pretty happy to me ... traveling around, doing his usual thing. So to pick now as the time to send letters, emails, gifts and any other niceties and kind words to a real bro, Keanu Reeves ... No, I don't really get it either.

For those who have discovered what a great guy Keanu is and are starting to really appreciate him as an actor and as a person, that's fantastic ... but seriously, don't send him anything. He doesn't want it. Keep your life to yourself and he'll do you the same courtesy. That's part of what's so great.

Maybe he isn't sad at all, maybe he's just ever so slightly pissed off that he can't even eat a simple lunch without the paparazzi stalking him wherever he goes.

Although that's not really true, he does spend a lot of his time under their radar, so to speak. But it's still a good point.

Well, happy thoughts to Keanu, anyway, although I don't believe in that shit and I'm not at all convinced he needs it. :-) Thank You, Keanu!! If you want to be like Keanu Reeves, do the most important thing of all - donate to cancer research.
