10+ Entirely Wholesome Stories Involving Keanu Reeves

Keanu Reeves is undeniably America’s sweetheart these days. Not content with being the star of blockbuster franchises like John Wick and The Matrix, Keanu has apparently also been on a decades-long secret campaign to quietly establish himself as one of the nicest guys in showbiz.

And here are 11 more stories that prove what everyone already knows by now: Keanu is the man.

Hey everyone- There’s been a lot of attention about a recent story I posted about an “adventure“ on a minibus with one of the great humanitarians (and fav actors) of our time. I don’t have anything to add other than that all the passengers were incredibly kind and lovely people, including the folks who took care of us in Bakersfield, CA. Perhaps though, with all this attention we can do some good. In the spirit of what a generous person Mr. Reeves is here are a few charities that you might consider donating to (if you don’t already). If you do have copies of the video (news outlets:), please attach links to these charities alongside them. Maybe we do a little good. 🙏 I posted links to charities in stories so you can easily click to each of these. 🚐🌴🦄💛 Song: It’s Such a Pretty World Today / Wynn Stewart #itssuchaprettyworldtoday www.sickkidsfoundation.com www.standuptocancer.org www.scorefund.org www.wildlifewaystation.org www.coachart.org/get-involved www.coachart.org www.stjude.org www.cityofhope.org/giving

3. A memory he’ll never forget

4. Nice guy

5. A long chat

6. Call in advance

7. Excellent!

8. For the kids

After filming a scene for John Wick 3 with a bunch of child actors, Keanu stuck around to meet and take pictures with all the kids. from KeanuBeingAwesome

9. In the crowd

Went to see John Wick 3 tonight and this guy happened to be in the audience too! from KeanuBeingAwesome

10. Wow

Fans trespassed on Keanu’s property back in the 1990s. Instead of calling the police, he had a beer with them. from KeanuBeingAwesome

11. That is amazing

A friend of mine told me that she was once stranded on the side of a highway outside LA when her jalopy broke down. She had no cell phone (that was before most people had cell phones) and no way to call for help. Then a nice black porsche pulls over and as you can guess, it was Keanu. He tried to help her jump start the car and when it didn’t work, he called AAA for her.

When they towed her car, he offered her to drive her home, which she accepted. He drove about 50 miles out of his destination just to drive her home. She told me she hoped he would hit on her but he didn’t, he was just a gentleman, dropped her at her house, gave her his phone number and told her to call him if she needed further help.”

He just keeps getting better and better, doesn’t he?

7 Actors Who Admitted to Drinking On the Job

Let’s just all raise our hands here and admit it: we’ve all had days on the job where we could’ve used a good, stiff drink… not after the day is done, but right smack in the middle of it. It’s just the way of work – there are days where it gets boring or just plain annoying (if you’re in customer service).

While actors certainly have one of the most exciting professions out there, it’s still a job, Sometimes, they need to have a few drinks too! Maybe they are bored, maybe they’re nervous, maybe they just want to relieve the tension of their job and their life for a little while.

These actors all admitted that they drank while filming some blockbuster movies, which makes the movies just a bit more interesting.

Maybe you need to go back and revisit some of these movies and pay closer attention to these actors, hmmmm?

1. Shia Lebeouf

#Lawless

A post shared by Shia Labeouf (@shialabeoufsource) on

Labeouf drank moonshine to get into character for his role in the film Lawless, where he played a bootlegger during the Prohibition years. It’s called dedication to the role.

2. Margot Robbie

Robbie admitted she was pretty nervous to do a sex scene with Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street, so she pounded three shots of tequila at 9 a.m. before filming the scene.

3. Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis

Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis had a pretty racy sex scene in Black Swan, and director Darren Aronofsky said the two women had a few drinks before the camera started rolling.

4. Daniel Radcliffe

Daniel Radcliffe admitted he had a drinking problem earlier in his film career. He admitted to showing up drunk on set while making the Harry Potter film series. Radcliffe told the Daily Mail, “I went into work still drunk. I can point to many scenes where I’m just gone. Dead behind the eyes. I have a very addictive personality. It was a problem.”

5. Anna Kendrick

Anna Kendrick was given a real beer instead of non-alcoholic beer during the making of Drinking Buddies and she admitted she got pretty drunk. She said, “I was pounding beer, and I didn’t realize it was real until halfway through the take. I was like, I’m super drunk right now!”

6. Jennifer Lawrence

Lawrence admitted to David Letterman that she got bored while filming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and she’d drink pina coladas in her trailer. Gotta kill the boredom somehow.

7. Brad Pitt and Edward Norton

A post shared by ʙʀᴀᴅ (@braddpiittt) on

Pitt and Norton starred in the now-iconic film Fight Club together, and they shared many memorable scenes. Remember the one where they drunkenly hit golf balls together? Director David Fincher decided to film that scene because the two actors were drunk and he wanted to catch some of their antics on film.

…I did not know that.

Twitter Thread Claims “Game of Thrones” Is Basically a Live-Action “Shrek”

Game of Thrones is over and done with – disappointingly, I might add. But as much of a let-down as this last season was for most fans, at least there was Twitter to commiserate with fellow fans and share blisteringly hot takes on the show in meme form.

So it was that Twitter gave us what might be one of the best GoT threads of all time: proof that Game of Thrones was basically a live-action Shrek.

Also? They’re not wrong.

From the explosions of green…

 

To comparing Shrek and Fiona to Jon Snow and Sansa Stark, they really nailed it.

 

Then there’s this almost shot-for-shot scene.

 

And the fact that they both left us guessing as to who was under that helmet?

 

Plus, you know. Dragons.

 

Things just get better from there.

I could go on (and on and on) but really, you’ll need to check out the thread for yourself in order to not miss anything!

What are you waiting for?

This Dad Had the Best Response When School Required a Permission Slip For His Son to Read “Fahrenheit 451”

Our kids bring permission slips home for all sorts of things, and sometimes we really don’t even bother to read them before penning our name and moving on – but thank goodness Daily Show writer Daniel Radosh makes a habit of reading what he’s signing, especially when it comes from his son, Milo.

The teen needed signed permission to read Fahrenheit 451 as part of his book club. One of the most divisive and important books of the 20th century, the novel takes a hard look at government censorship in the wake of the Nazis, Stalin, and McCarthyism…and the irony was just too much for Radosh to pass up.

Image Credit: Twitter

So, he sent this response back with the slip:

“I love this letter! What a wonderful way to introduce students to the theme of Fahrenheit 451 that books are so dangerous that the institutions of society—schools and parents—might be willing to team up against children to prevent them from reading one. It’s easy enough to read the book and say, ‘This is crazy. It could never really happen,’ but pretending to present students at the start with what seems like a totally reasonable ‘first step’ is a really immersive way to teach them how insidious censorship can be. I’m sure that when the book club is over and the students realize the true intent of this letter they’ll be shocked at how many of them accepted it as an actual permission slip. In addition, Milo’s concern that allowing me to add this note will make him stand out as a troublemaker really brings home why most of the characters find it easier to accept the world they live in rather than challenge it. I assured him that his teacher would have his back.”

This is completely hilarious, but also insightful and spot-on. I can only assume that one day Milo will look back and laugh about how smart his dad was (is) and at himself for being such a typically embarrassed teen.

5 Far-Out Facts About Legendary “Rocketman” Elton John

Music icon Elton John’s biopic, Rocketman, is in theaters and  72-year-old singer/songwriter/showman extraordinaire is also in the middle of a three-year-long farewell tour. Safe to say, he’s got a lot going on!

In celebration of his final bow from the stage and the new film based on his life, here are 5 facts about the man, the myth, the legend: Elton John.

1. He’s had the same songwriting partner for over 50 years


John and his songwriting partner Bernie Taupin have been a team since 1967. Together, the duo is responsible for over 50 Top 40 hits and over 225 million records sold.

2. He released four albums in one year

Between October 1970 and November 1971 John was extremely prolific, releasing four albums – an unheard of number in today’s musical era. He released Tumbleweed Connection, Friends, the live album 17-11-70, and Madman Across the Water during this period, the latter of which featured his enduring hit, Tiny Dancer.

3. That’s not his real name

John was born Reginald Kenneth Dwight on March 25, 1947, in England. He grew up being called “Reg” or “Reggie” but he legally changed his name in 1972 and didn’t want any association with his birth name after that. John said, “Reg is the unhappy part of my life. If my mother can call me Elton, then everybody else can.”

4. He shared the stage with John Lennon in Lennon’s last ever performance

On November 28, 1974, Elton John convinced John Lennon to join him onstage during a concert at New York’s Madison Square Garden for three songs, including Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds and I Saw Her Standing There. It was Lennon’s last public performance.

5. He was a bonafide hit-making machine

During the 1970s, Elton John was on a serious roll. He recorded 15 hit singles between 1973-1976, including fan favorites Don’t Go Breaking My HeartRocket ManCrocodile Rock, and Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting.

LEGO’s New “Stranger Things” Set Literally Goes to the Upside-Down

Netflix’s hit show Stranger Things will release its third season on July 4, 2019. The series has a pretty rabid fan base that can’t get enough of the show. They always want more – more merchandise, more news, more behind-the-scenes info.

JULY 4

A post shared by Stranger Things (@strangerthingstv) on

Well, ST fans, I’m here to share some good news with you. LEGO has teamed up with Netflix and launched a new toy set featuring 8 character figures, the Byers’ house…and the Upside Down.

Take a look at this, it’s pretty amazing.

You can see from the video above that the detail in this set is really extraordinary. The launch was announced at LEGO stores in London and New York City, and you can order the set from the LEGO online shop HERE. The set costs $199.99 and has 2,287 LEGO pieces.

You know you want a LEGO replica of Chief Hopper’s police cruiser, don’t even try to deny it.

This commercial for the Stranger Things LEGO set has a pretty awesome vintage, 1980s feel to it.

The Byers house is shown in incredible detail, with Will’s room all decked out, “Have you seen me?” flyers plastered on the walls, a dining room, and the alphabet wall from Season One (it lights up!) among other things. Then you can flip that house upside and get…The Upside Down! Which is totally awesome in its own right!

I bet you can’t wait to get your hands on this and play for days on end – am I right?

Are you excited for the new season of Stranger Things? What are your predictions? Sound off in the comments!
