Keanu Reeves’ Blonde Mystery

By: Celebuzz / January 26, 2009

Keanu Reeves and his shaggydelic self accompanied an unknown woman to lunch at La Pain Quotidien in Brentwood, California on Sunday.

“La Pain Quotidien” translates as “The Daily Bread” in English so you can assume there was some baked goods involved.

Keanu might have returned to his customary “homeless” look due to the reception that his latest film, the sci-fi remake The Day The Earth Stood Still, received.

Reeves, 44, played a harbinger of Earth’s doom in the film which updated the 1951 original and co-starred Jennifer Connelly and Kathy Bates.

Film critic clearinghouse site Rotten Tomatoes clocks the film in at 20% (out of a 100, of course) and describes it as “heavy on special effects, but without a coherent story at its base, The Day the Earth Stood Still is subpar re-imagining of the 1951 science-fiction classic.”

Ouch. It did, however, gross almost $80 million at the box office here in the US.

Well at least Keanu can take comfort in the fact that the shifty paparazzo who was trying to sue him last year lost his case.

A jury decided that photographer Alison Silva’s claim that Keanu struck him with his car and caused serious injury to his wrist was suspect. Especially since video came to light of Silva deftly using his wrist afterwards.

So the legal system smiles upon Keanu, even if the critics don’t.
