I sure had a good time last night! I was going to respond on "Maybe Donna's Right" but I thought this response deserved its own subject because it is a bit rambling plus I don't want to give a certain somebody any more attention than she deserves - that thread should be flushed down the toilet where Keanu's career is supposedly residing.(JOKE!)
Kidos, Kudos, Kiddos....whatever.<snip>
Kidus to you. Saturday night is daylight savings time. I could compound that with some vino?
Hugs, mon amie.
Giggle - I anticipated you, Andro. I had had oh, 3 glasses of some nice stuff before and during the first classical concert I'd seen in 6 years. I am visiting friends and family in NYC until after Thanksgiving. I haven't been in Phoenix in 6 years, much less NYC, and I'm overwhelmed. I walk in the desert a lot. Walking in this incredibly dense place makes me feel like Alice in Wonderland.
Two things inspired me: Tabbby's takedown of 'flippy' on IMDB, a masterpiece, and conversation with old friend at the concert. Friend is hair stylist who has done everybody (I am not telling gender for reasons which you can guess at). We dished about various clients, one of whom is KR.
In past, I have never dish with friend because when in the business I never enjoyed it, enough is enough, and believe it or not, although gossip is rife in entertainment industry, it's still considered unprofessional. People are people but there are also standards and red lines.
But it's different now, and besides, I was curious: what do you think of him?
And I got what I said above: "a sweetie." Those exact words.
My words, my feelings, too. F'rcrisskaes, maybe he's got a voodoo doll hidden somewhere, but maybe you do, too. Enough, already!
Skeptics, don't believe me? OK, here's a detail that's somewhat out of Keanu character: occasionally, he does travel with an entourage.
Shock! Horror! Does that bust your Keanu-bubble? He has an entourage, he just doesn't cart them around everywhere, like some stars do. Whenever hairdresser friend was called to the SoHo Grand to do hair, entourage was there. When KR came into the shop (little place in SoHo) he'd come solo.
Oh, for that juicy detail you are all waiting for: the entourage usually included a girlfriend, and my friend knows these things. I know that some people will say it's all for show. Girlfriend was a beard. Yes, of course, this was all an elaborate plot: call a well-regarded but not famous headcutter who has never been a gossip source, who wouldn't be known to gossip columnists, who has a family & responsibilities and whose job depends on being reliable, all to flaunt your "beard"? The same "beard" that you do not flaunt anywhere else?
This is such an amazing deception, I think Keanu should be in charge of national security. Really, he should be in charge of Homeland Security.
