Keanu Reeves shares profound answer on love and death

Keanu Reeves attends the world premiere of “John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum” at One Hanson on Thursday, May 9, 2019, in New York.

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.”

The host shook hands with Reeves and rolled into a commercial.

“John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum” opens in theaters on Friday.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
