Although Keanu Reeves has previously labeled himself a “meathead,” that doesn’t seem to entirely be the truth. In fact, in some of the interviews in which the actor has taken part during his three-decade career in Hollywood, he has displayed quite the philosophical side by making observations that are perhaps unexpectedly profound.
And on a May 2019 visit to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Reeves proved just how deep he really is. On that occasion, the star spoke to the host about both his role in the John Wick movie franchise and the upcoming second sequel to the 1989 comedy classic Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure.
The new movie – provisionally titled Bill & Ted Face the Music – will see Reeves’ famous character fighting to save the universe and grappling with his own mortality. In response, then, Colbert posed the actor a tough question. “What do you think happens to us when we die, Keanu Reeves?” he wondered. And the actor’s reply was both touching and wise.
