A megahunk whose hunkiness has spanned four decades, Keanu Reeves started acting at the age of nine, and he appeared in stage productions of Damn Yankees and Romeo and Juliet before he made his screen acting debut in the Canadian sitcom entitled Hangin' In in 1984. How’s it hangin’ now, Keanu? After that, he appeared on TV shows like Night Heat, Letting Go, and The Comedy Factory, as well as the small-budget movie One Step Away before he joined up with fellow gorgeous guys Rob Lowe and Patrick Swayze in the hockey flick Youngblood (1985). Puck yeah!
In 1986, Keanu starred in the darkly comic cult classic River’s Edge, where he perfected his flannel-wearing teen rebel bad boy image. Three years later, he went from cult stardom to superstardom when he played the titular time-traveling teen burnout Ted in the sci-fi comedy Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure (1989), a role he reprised in the sequel along with its 1991 sequel, Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey (1991).
Keanu won MTV's "Most Desirable Male" award in 1992 for his performance in Point Break (1991) as an FBI agent going undercover to infiltrate a gang of surfing bank robbers led by Patrick Swayze. Since then, Keanu has played the Buddha in Little Buddha (1993), an action hero in Speed (1994), a kung-fu chopping messiah in the Matrix trilogy, and an improbably handsome alien in the sci-fi remake The Day the Earth Stood Still (2008). Hey, I’m a be-Reeve-er!
