Keanu Reeves Finds Friendship and Joy, Finally Sporting a Smile as He Enjoys Time with a Companion

Is that finally a smile on Keanu Reeves face?

The actor has appeared rather solitary of late with recurring images of him cutting a downcast, lonely figure.

But yesterday Keanu was pictured smiling and laughing with a friend as they enjoyed a coffee break together in Toronto.

Happy again: Keanu laughed and joked with his friend as they smoked cigarettes and drank coffee together in the sunshine

The Matrix star is in Canada to promote his new movie, Henry’s Crime at the Toronto International Film Festival.

And although he was dressed down in his usual outfit of scruffy jeans and old trainers it was nice to see him enjoying himself for once.

Pictures of a sad, unshaven Keanu seem to be the norm nowadays, even sparking an internet incentive to cheer up the glum star.

It culminated in June 15 being nominated as official Cheer Up Keanu Day.

Turnaround: Maybe Cheer Up keanu Day is finally working its magic as a smile returns to the solitary actor’s face

Just recently though a sad Keanu was pictured ringing in his 46th birthday on a loading dock in New York City with just a solitary cup cake as means of celebration.

Then a few days later the Hollywood hearthrob was pictured looking lonely, smoking a cigarette next to a no loitering sign.


Keanu has had his fair share of tragedy, with his former girlfriend Jennifer Syme, 28, dying in a car crash in 2001. It came 16 months after the couple’s baby daughter Ava was stillborn.

‘I’m sure he’s doing fine,” says Daniel Murphy, 21, who created the Cheer Up Keanu Facebook page to advertise the new holiday. ‘I don’t really think he’s that sad; I just think his work is underappreciated.’

Hearthrob: Despite the facial stubble and scruffy clothing Keanu still has the looks to melt a thousand hearts

‘His depiction of Hamlet was probably one of the best American versions, but everyone still thinks of him as Ted,’ Murphy says, referring to Reeves’ role in the 1989 movie Bill And Ted’s Excellent Adventure.

Meanwhile Reeves’ representatives want the world, and Keanu’s legions of fans to know that their client isn’t depressed, in the slightest.

‘Keanu Reeves would like to thank all of his fans for their concerns regarding his happiness and wants to assure everyone that all is well,’ his rep said. ‘This situation is a result of a misinterpretation of a paparazzi shot.’

Well, whatever it is it’s certainly good to see the actor smiling and happy once again.
