more than a symbol for sex

the eyebrow thing

When posed with the question:
"Of course, when your face goes up on the cover of a magazine and they have the words "sex symbol" underneath that, do you just block that out?"

Keanu Reeves replies:
"What do I do with that? It's changed over the years. Basically, I try to -- I think of it as an alternate universe. Once in a while, the gravity from that universe has an effect, but most of the time I try to, you know, not deal with it because it is, you know, it's a fantasy aspect of it, you know. And I hope people enjoy the films I act in, I hope they enjoy my performance. I hope for all of that. But in terms of, like, you know, the top 50, the top 100, the most big, all of that kind of stuff, it's -- it's surreal, to say the least."

I love that rugged look that this pic gives him.

I finally listend to the CD yesterday while I was packing. My only comment is that I wish there had been more songs on it. I told a girlfriend at school that you were sending it to me and she has insisted that I loan it to her. I've questioned doing this but since she can listen to it while doing her work on the computer I might just change my mind.

Thanks again!

Well, thank goodness he doesn't take it too seriously... That's part of his appeal.
I mean, if he would ever read your lovely site (I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you!) & the comments you and us 'commenters' are making regarding his sex-appeal *popsicle, anyone? ;-)* and he WOULD let it affect him, he would have an ego the size of Keanugolia! :-) It's just so cool that he doesn't even seems to realize what feelings he evokes in other people. I like him even more because of that! -and there's nothing surreal about that, either!-

i love the whole alternate universe theory, like earth 2 in the comic books. one more reason to love this man...

I'm definately under his gravitational pull that's for sure...

Got to love a guy who uses the term alternate universe in an interview. What a man.

There was "most big" poll? Where'd he rack up in that? ;)
j/k of course.

Chianti, you perv! Don't you know that it's not the size that matters?

Well... Come to think of it, actually it does! :-D
