You can tell Winona is classy because she hasn’t sued him for all the John Wick money yet.
“Throughout his career, Reeves has eschewed obvious transformation in favor of something trickier and more subtle. What has allowed him to remain a star, 30 years later, is a blend of virility, vulnerability, and an aura of mystery, hearkening to a bygone era of stardom that contradicts the current moment, which requires stars to seem endlessly accessible; his sheer joy for the medium that makes him a cinematic sensualist; his racial dimensions as a star; and his gimlet-eyed understanding of the female gaze.
These qualities are unique in the current market of stardom in Hollywood, allowing him to straddle various cinematic contexts with ease — mainstream romantic comedies, somber indie flicks, gloriously decadent action flicks.”

Himbos save the universe
FBI undercover surfer man
Bus go boom if drive too slow
Reality is a hologram and this guy is the Messiah or something, he knows kung fu
Man loses wife, dog, murders literally everyone
