More Chat stuff

Here's another portion of that AOL chat from last year in which Keanu talks about getting (and not getting) roles:

Mr. Moviefone: SJoe0021 says: Do the costars influence you accepting a role in a movie, or is it purely script? Good question.

Keanu Reeves: Generally, my experience has been -- the past few years, it's been script and then director and then part. You know, so kind of yes, script, character, director, part.

Mr. Moviefone: I guess you pretty much get to do what you want now, don't you?

Keanu Reeves: No.

Mr. Moviefone: No?

Keanu Reeves: No. Of course not. No.

Mr. Moviefone: Really?

Keanu Reeves: No, of course not.

Mr. Moviefone: Come on.

Keanu Reeves: No, really. I mean, life is odd sometimes, where you know, you think, oh, OK, this is -- you know how when you do something and you think this is going to get easier, the more I do it?

Mr. Moviefone: Right.

Keanu Reeves: And then sometimes it doesn't? You know, and when you think it does, all of a sudden you have a moment where you go, wow, I thought I knew what I was doing, but I don't.

Mr. Moviefone: Right.

Keanu Reeves: And in work, you know, being an actor, you know, you always -- there's always a part that you want that maybe the director doesn't feel you're right for or the studio doesn't feel you're right for, you know. And I've had that experience, where it's just been like, you know, I had the begging bowl, and no one took it away from me. I still had it. I read the script and I still had the bowl.

And here is a part where Keanu talks about high school:

Mr. Moviefone: Let's take another question. Were you popular when you were in school?

Keanu Reeves: Which year?

Mr. Moviefone: High school, I guess.

Keanu Reeves: High school? The first year, no. The second year -- it depends. It was kind of depended who you -- I went to four high schools in five years.

Mr. Moviefone: Thrown out of a few? Trouble?

Keanu Reeves: I got kicked out of two.

Mr. Moviefone: Is that true?

Keanu Reeves: Yeah.

Mr. Moviefone: For what?

Keanu Reeves: They wouldn't let me back into the performing arts high school in grade 11 because, well, I had problems with the principal.

Mr. Moviefone: OK. We can leave it at that.

Keanu Reeves: Yeah.

I would SO have had a crush on him in high school.
