Keanu Reeves has a pretty large online following, and although it’s strange, the biggest theory about him has been explained.
The dedicated Keanu fanbase has finally explained the reasoning behind their strange theory.
Scroll on to read for yourself.
If there’s one thing that the internet can agree on, it’s that Keanu Reeves is an all-around great guy.
The actor currently resides in the Hollywood hills after gaining fame in an impressive range of massively successful movies.
Do you recognize him from Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989) which told the story of two slackers traveling through time?
It was so successful that it was followed by a sequel: Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey in 1991.
Or what about his 1992 appearance in Gothic horror-romance, Bram Stoker’s Dracula?
His performance in this rather overblown movie has been pretty much universally panned.
He also starred in the buddy-cop thriller, Point Break, in 1991, alongside Gary Busey and Patrick Swayze.
It was a commercial smash and went on to garner a cult following.
He continued this trend in 1994’s Speed.
The suspenseful thriller told the tale of a rigged bus that would explode if it slowed down. Reeves starred alongside Sandra Bullock and Dennis Hopper, but has since shaded the film by refusing to star in the sequel. His reason? “The movies I wanted to make were movies I wanted to see.” Ouch.
But there’s one role that really turned Keanu Reeves into a household name…
His role as Neo in The Matrix franchise.
The movies are still thought of as touchstones within the science fiction genre.
While he may be an incredible actor, Reeves’ talents don’t finish there…
He’s also a talented musician and spent many years playing bass for the alternative rock band, Dogstar, in the ’90s.
Despite his success, Keanu has had a tough life.
From a very young age, Keanu experienced grief.
Keanu’s father walked out on the family when he was just 3-years-old…
He was ultimately arrested for possession of drugs in 1994, leading to Keanu not wanting to ever contact his father again.
His younger sister, Kim, was diagnosed with leukemia aged twenty-five.
He also suffered a tragedy when he and Jennifer Syme lost their child. The baby was stillborn on Christmas eve, a month before the due date.
Many may expect the heartbreak and hurt he’s experienced to make him bitter…
But, instead, it’s quite the opposite as Keanu has become an incredible philanthropist. He’s well known for supporting a wide range of charitable causes, from PETA to Stand Up To Cancer.
He’s even quietly funded children’s cancer hospitals for many years.
It’s no surprise that he’s developed a large online following of fans.
What might be a little unusual is that some of them believe he’s actually immortal.
Now, there’s no denying that Keanu has aged like fine wine, but there’s a different reason behind their theory.
According to the official Keanu Reeves Is Immortal website, he looks suspiciously similar to the 8th-century king, Charlemagne, and Paul Mounet, a 19th-century actor.
Well, that’s not all. The website first began, piggybacking on Reddit threads questioning why he looks the same as he did when he first started out in Hollywood.
Fans shared photos of him throughout the ages, and the conspiracy theories grew from there.
He finally addressed the theories back in 2017 on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon…
And he didn’t deny them.
“We’re all stardust, baby!” he said in response to Fallon.
Fallon showed him his likeness to doppelgängers: Charlemagne, Paul Mounet, and a man pictured in the Parmigianino painting, which has been used to ‘confirm’ he is immortal.
Just like the rest of us, he seemed pretty shocked by the resemblance.
But does that prove he’s immortal?
