List three main reasons why -people- should stop calling Keanu gay, dude, and a "stone actor".

I am so sick of hearing this shit. I am also sick of reading interviews by dopes who shouldn't even have jobs. I'm bored so make it interesting, will ya?

The highlight of my day was, by chance, coming across 10 soft packs of Marlboro lights for a buck each. Not a fun packed day in Hollywood.

*inhale here*
So I will sit here and dispel my insight on this very serious matter.

1) The Gay issue. Would it have been easier for him to answer the question with a simple "No"? Maybe. But really, why are they asking in the first place? Does it even matter? Perhaps 'The Lake House' would never have happened. Perhaps thousands of females would have jumped off Capitol Records. But seriously, he is private, and camera's aren't around all the time. Sorry to burst your bubble, but photographers don't wait outside his house 24/7, nor do they always follow him. I think women just go over to his man pad secretly, or he is just waiting for the right woman. There's nothing wrong with being alone, and unfair to yell "Gay!" because he's not whoring around. It's funny to me how much the media gets wrong, for example, when he is out with a female it's automatically assumed that they are together and in love, or exclusive! Now dating. It almost always ends up being someone already in a relationship, if not already married. He obviously hasn't found someone close enough to take to premieres, and "out" them as his. The whole Parker Posey baby thing was outrageous to me. One stupid gossip leak ends up being copy and pasted around the world within a day. The man seems to wear the same jeans every day. Somehow that makes me think he is still single.

2) Dude, the original dude, whatever. He has done several mature, award worthy movies since then. This one just annoys me, not much to say about it. There's nothing "Dude" about him to me, except perhaps that he looks easily approachable.

3) Stone acting. Maybe the general public watches his movies superficially, and that is all. There's more to acting then grand over done gestures that translate as fake. How does he take in so many diverse roles? He doesn't just read the lines, he takes in the character. Personal experience. At times you know he is somewhere deeper, and in my own personal experience, when you are in pain or in laughter, you don't over act it, you LIVE it, through it. To me, he could be in the silent film era, the eyes and body movement says it all.

Afterthought - I just looked through this forum for the first time really, and kinda taken aback by all the weirdness. If he does have a love, I would shield her too - dangerous people out there with delusions. Hmm. Hard to say it, it kind of scares me what fans are really like. You will never know who he really is, and you shouldn't.

there are dangerous people out there, but most of us just want him to be happy, some of the wierdness you see is just harmless banter, we tease, gossip, and generaly make comments to make people snigger.

But boys will be boys I just washed my son's cell phone and wallet the night before last. Many times he's been told to hang his jeans up instead of balling them up. He comes back in later looking for his cell. I'm looking in the washing machine " oh, you mean this." We both look up at each other. I look at him " Oh you know what I'm going to say." After that, all I could think is my son will never get married.:)

Ok I'll bite!!- Gay-Well he said in a gay magazine he was not gay. He also has stated that the reason he is not "dating" is because he can't give his full attention to the ladies. He also stated when you see a woman smile you are seeing the most wonderful thing on this planet. He also stated he loves women. So have his friends said that about him. And we all know about poor Ava and Jen.

Dude-This comes from him being in his most innerself a self proclaimed hippie. He always has been and still is. Producers/friends ect... all say he is a hippie.

Stone acting-Aww Gawd I hate this one. One-He has pins in his neck from fracturing two vertibrae in his neck. Try moving naturally with pins in your neck. Second-his voice. To fix those said vertabrae they went through the front of his neck-You can see the scar-The consequence of that is your voice box may get nicked and your voice changes. If you listen closely to his voice in movies prior to 1996 his voice is very differant. His acting is purely method acting -understated-not overacting. One of his costars in Point Break said that most actors act to go get the lens where Keanu is compfortable with having the lens find him. Make sense????

I think the short answer LAL is that people are sheep and don't like to think for themselves. It just takes one clever journo to impress a few readers with a smart remark and it gets written into lore.

I think Keanu is an enigma and not easy to label accurately so they go for the tried and tested labels others have used.

This is true. I missed the magazine interview in which he states he is straight. He also stated he wanted to get married and have children. It seems like his work load is dwindling, maybe he is now concentrating / focusing on the family aspect of his life.

He is a hippie, isn't he. A free floater. That to me is just very attractive. The title "Dude" stuck from 'Bill & Ted..' though, and it needs to be retired. Maybe he should have starred in 'The Big Lebowski' to continue the crown of grunge.

As far as the health concerns, I really don't believe it effects his acting. It's interesting you noticed a change in voice. I just found that he matured. If he was able to do stunts in his action flicks, along with riding around on his bikes so much, it seems to me he isn't letting it interfere.

Either was I bet he is a big hearted and at times a tempermental man not to be messed with, and I'm interested in seeing what he will do next.

LAL I agree-He said in an interview for Street Kings that his knees are tired. He doesn't seem to me to be a winer or complainer. especially when he is working. He'll do whatever it takes. I think you are correct with the tempermental not to me messed with type of guy. He is a man of contrasts that is for sure. You really can't pin him down as to what kind of man he is. That is why I am a fan. He is so differant from any other actors and he is an enigma for sure. And him being gorgeous doesn't hurt either!!

His knees are probably "tired" from hockey. My husband had to have a knee replaced due to hockey, and the other one isn't so great either. If you've ever watched a goalie play, there's a lot of flopping around, moving side to side, and then of course the butterfly is a knee KILLER, I'm sure. Add in the stunts from a few movies, and you've probably got serious knee issues.

What *I'm* tired of hearing, though, is the word "excellent" whenever any article is written about Keanu. It's SO OLD!!! But just you watch, when the reviews start coming out about The Day the Earth Stood Still, they'll *somehow* sneak that stupid word into it, I can almost guarantee.
