This can't wait until Monday

Thanks to Joy for this Entertainment Weekly Celebrity Photography link featuring Keanu.


Photograph by Robert Maxwell October 19, 2003 Los Angeles

''What I like about Keanu is the sense of shyness about him,'' says Maxwell, who shot the Matrix Revolutions stud at an empty soundstage. ''You'd expect more of a cocky, suave [guy] since he's such a sex symbol. But he was very simple.'' Hence Maxwell's ''rebellious'' decision: forgo a sci-fi-centric setup for one with a relaxed vibe. ''I tend to wing every shoot, and I found him just sitting there a thousand times more interesting.''

I've liked Maxwell's work for a while, and now I like his attitude as well.

It's too good to be true, he could use this pic to hide it,
like Dorian Gray, in his attic - if he had one.
I admire many of Maxwell's portraits, and in this case,
I like everything in it, down to the sepia tone...

BTW, up again already?

Shows he's genuine. Everyone that meets him has the same thing to say about him. I love that!
I fell in love with my mail man this morning when I got this mag! Absolutely gorgeous! Love that cashmere looking throw he's sitting on. If you guys don't hear from me in a while it's because I've gone to sit on his lap. mmmm....

How was the gig last night krix?!

I will remember Robert Maxwell. How brilliant is he to notice that Keanu "just sitting there was 1000 times more interesting". Only a true artist could reveal that much about his subject. Thanks for sharing Krix!

Gorgeous photo, and interesting how he's colored it... He took several different types of pics, the b&w t-shirt ones, and that color one I adore which I always think of as the "angel" shot, with the white shirt that was in the front of that EW..

thanks everyone.. *runs out to mailbox in the rain for mag*

I emailed EW thanking the mag and Robert Maxwell for including Keanu in the photo issue and pointing out the fact that he doesn't carry a Hollywood ego. Don't know if it will get recognized, but hope they get the hint to keep on including him. :-)

Y E S !!!

(He still looks good in old furniture and even in brown socks - what I cannot say about any other men.. ;-) )

he looks good with those fabrics... my heart my heart... agree with maxwell... 10,000 times interessting is keanu... just sitting there....
i apologize for being a little sporadic in my posts... my birthday coming up and i'm just feeling a bit sentimental...(visiting with my aunt in CA and she is awesome... we reminisce in a sepia tone kind of way!!!!!) all the computers were being used last night and ididn't get a chance to post before i fell asleep on the comfy sofu. such a perfect pic for the moment for me... a great saying i recently heard is... every old sock needs an old shoe!! ain't that a great saying!!!! i bet new socks need new shoes a n d old socks love new shoes and new socks love.... well... you get the idea!

'keanu doesn't carry a hollywood ego'... i believe that very appealing statement.

Advance Happy Birthday, Wanda! :)

thanks sweetie... another poem...

with you
by wanda! ))

i go to the water
i go to the sea
i go to the you on the inside of me
i do drink the water
and swim in the sea
and find a beautiful light inside of me

with you
i wear the velvet
with you
i dance the aisle
i walk a solid road
for many many a mile...
i go on under you
i wonder no more
i love you so much
what a *n i c e*... hunky door.

He is gorgeous no questiones asked....I think Keanu looks better when he gets older...when he was young he looked a little goofy, now he looks like a real man

this is essence of dignity, that man knows a lot! *dreamy look from this side*
