There's a small part of me that always wonders what would happen if somebody actually tried messing with him in real life. Given that he's spent vastly more time training than a typical person, I've always had this feeling that he could probably do at least decently well in a real life fight. (Of course, that could be completely incorrect).
He has trained in many types of martial arts since doing The Matrix in the 90s so he definitely knows his stuff, and while most 'fighting' in movies is purely choreographed, Keanu is a white belt (possibly higher now) in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and has trained with the best, so I definitely wouldn't want to pick a fight with him.
He looks like he’s was in a punk rock band in the 80s.. actually he probably was
Just answered this in another thread:
Well My Own Private Idaho is definitely a favourite of mine, The Bill and Ted movies are hilarious and pure fun, and John Wick was a brilliant comeback for him and his fighting skills are awesome. Special mention for River's Edge and Permanent Record because young Keanu was excellent in them and not a lot of people have seen them.
I've been reading through Keanu's AMA from 2014 and you know what I love? When someone asks him is favourite of anything, Keanu says "Today I will pick...", like if we asked him yesterday or tomorrow the answer would be different. I think that is just wonderful!
His answers are just adorable. And the person who transcribed his answers said
You can't really put this into text, but he sounded really happy this entire AMA.
which makes me really happy.
Wait he had a band?!
yeah they were called Dogstar, you should check them out
I checked them out man. They performed at Glastonbury and many other festivals. Crazy.
