Keanu quote of the day

Being exposed to Buddhism was a remarkable event in my life.  Working with Bertolucci, a man with such a compassion and creativity and respect. It was an honor and a thrill to act in that cinema with that classic Bertolucci shot...moving...layers...textures.  The sets, the actors in their costumes, the lighting.  With 400 extra's throwing petals as I'm leaving the palace for the first time in my life.  To be carried by 40 men while they chanted Siddhartha! Siddhartha! In an 800 year old city.  As an actor that was heaven.
