Keanu Reeves shares profound answer on love and death
Keanu Reeves, promoting his latest “John Wick” movie, delivered a deep and meaningful, yet simple answer when asked about morality and dying.
While appearing on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Friday night, Reeves, 54, talked about stunts and the new movie. He also talked about the recently announced “Bill & Ted 3” movie, tentatively titled “Bill & Ted Face the Music.”
Reeves described the plot where the pair has to write a song that will save the world, actually the entire universe.
And they have to write the song in 80 minutes. If Bill and Ted don’t write the song, “it’s the end of the universe and time and space and the continuum. It’s all over,” explained Reeves.
“So you’re facing your own mortality and the mortality of all existence,” Colbert replied. “Wow.”
Colbert then gets very serious, very deep, very fast and asked, “What do you think happens when we die, Keanu Reeves?”
Keanu took a breath and answered, “I know that the ones who love us will miss us.”
Colbert was quiet, speechless really, while the audience let out a warm “awwww.”
