Why These Photos of Keanu Reeves Posing with Women Are Going Viral
[MUSIC] Hi, I'm Katrina Szish for InStyle.com where we're giving you a front row seat, at New York Fashion Week. We're backstage with Hollywood favorites Mark Badgley and James Mischka, eagerly awaiting the start of their show. You know, we had a lot of fun with this season. We came off a few neutral collections so we did a lot of color this season, a lot of texture. They're like timeless elegance. That's what I love about them. I love that they have something for everyone whether you'd be like 17 or you're 45. You know, I love the textures that they use, the beadings, and the different fabrics. It's the kind of clothes that really make you feel good. It's beautiful, beautiful clothes that are incredibly well made. I mean amazing materials, amazing craftsmanship. You know it's always going to be like a beautiful show. Now the latest from Monique Lhuillier whose dresses goes straight from the runway to the red carpet. She designs so well for the female form and every time I see someone in one of Monique's dresses, I love it. I could be in 1964, but then, you know, there I am in 2008. I just, I love it. It's so special. It's kind of interesting cuz I kind of feel like I am in Lipstick Jungle when I'm here, do you know what I mean? She just is really so great with women. You know, it's like she has the right embellishments. Like a little lace, and a little kind of ruffle, but it's never too much. It's just the perfect amount. Everyone wants a piece of Marc Jacobs and good thing, cause there are plenty of them to choose from in his new Marc by Marc Jacobs collection. Just classic, you know, he makes beautiful things. Marc by Marc Jacobs is very cool, sportswear. It's classic American. It's gorgeous. He's brilliant. His customer is that cool girl and he always nails it. Today it was sort of 80s inspired. And lots of attitude, it's very cute. Let's go check out Vana Sarif's eco-friendly collection. She does something that's really hard to do. She makes simple clothes, yet special and elegant. They're very wearable and refined but they always have beautiful detail. I am Katrina Szish and that wraps day five of instyle.com's New York Fashion Week coverage. Check back tomorrow for non-stop Fashion Week coverage.
Seemingly overnight, Keanu Reeves has emerged as the internet's favorite boyfriend, and a recent set of viral photos is only fueling the flame.
Last week, one Twitter user noticed that the actor has a pattern when it comes to taking photos with women, be it his co-stars or fans: keeping his hands off them. The user tweeted a series of photos, writing, "Keanu ain't taking no chances."
Lol Keanu ain’t taking no chances. 😂😂 pic.twitter.com/nnfIOZKbT1— Kemoy Lindsay (@KemziLinzi) June 9, 2019
The tweet quickly viral (with over 391,000 likes at the time of writing), as people chimed in to praise him for being respectful.

With the latest John Wick movie out in theaters along with Toy Story 4 and his incomparable cameo in Always Be My Maybe, we're in the midst of a Keanu Reeves Renaissance era — or, if you will, a Keanu-ssance. Add that to a viral story about him going out of his way to sign an autograph for a teen who was too shy to ask, and you have a certifiable internet boyfriend.
Asked about the internet's thirst over him, the actor remained humble.
"It's been really nice and special for me. Just how well the John Wick film was received and then also recently with Always Be My Maybe and then being connected with CD Projekt Red," he told ET at the Toy Story 4 premiere. "I've just had the chance to be working with really cool people and be a part of really cool projects. And so to be here with Toy Story 4 is a lot of fun."
"It's nice when it's nice," he added.
He had a similar sentiment when asked about being given internet boyfriend status, asking People, “I’ve been what?”
“That’s, uh, that’s wacky,” he said. “Well, the positivity’s great.”
Spoken like a truly humble, respectful man.
