The actor from “The Matrix Resurrections” divulged the identities of the two A-list celebrities whose signatures he had demanded from them.
According to Reeves, 57, Lou Reed of The Velvet Underground was his favorite musician.
He recounted how the late musician had told him, “But that wasn’t for me—that was for a buddy, and [Lou] was alright with it.” “ It was scribbled in blue ink on a scrap of paper that was not very big… Absolutely, it was really impressive. Only “Lou Reed” was written there.
Reeves said, ” it could have written, “All my best,” or I don’t know anything… ”
The second one was none other than the legendary comedian George Carlin, with whom he co-starred in 1989’s Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, who Reeves requested for their John Hancock signatures.
“He penned… According to my recollection, it stated “Dear Keanu, F— you! I always thought that he just wrote it for me, but then I met someone who said that he did the same thing for them, anyway , how lovely!”
In an interview with Zoom from the previous year, Reeves and his Bill & Ted co-star Alex Winter talked about the long-awaited third installment in the series, which is titled Bill & Ted Face the Music.
They also discussed their experiences working with Carlin, who passed away in 2008 at the age of 71.
“He carried himself with grace… He put a lot of work into [his character] Rufus and was extremely direct.”
He then proceeded, saying, “And he gave a weight to it; after all, it is George Carlin from the future. The chance to work with such a terrific person and artist was just incredible, and the two of us had a great time doing it.
