Keanu quote of the day

So who exactly is the real Keanu?

"You'd call me a hippie, wouldn't you, David?" Reeves asks his director.

"That's correct," Ayer says.

This as much as anything seemingly explains why Reeves wanted to play Tom Ludlow, the soulsick cop at the centre of Ayer's morality play. [Street Kings]

"The director's calling me a hippie and I get to kill eight people in this movie, so it was a good role. It was fun or kind of fun to be pushed to go to a place I don't normally live in."
