Keanu Admits Drug Use

Published January 12th, 2001 - 02:00 GMT

Talking with glossy magazine Vanity Fair, Keanu Reeves admits to using, and vastly enjoying, recreational drugs. We're shocked, truly shocked. Not!  

Reeves does nothing to dispel his image as a laid-back kind of dude by saying in the February issue of the magazine, "I've had wonderful experiences [with drugs]. I mean, really wonderful. In teaching. Personal epiphanies. About life. About a different perspective, help with different perspectives that you have. You know what I mean? Relationships to nature. Relationships with the self. With other people. With events." Cosmic, bro.  

Although Reeves has achieved box-office fame with his pumped-up action dudes in Speed and The Matrix, his surfer-dude persona is still very much intact.  

The 36-year-old actor says he has had to work hard to dispel his reputation as a drug user, saying, "… I did some things that I wouldn't have normally done if I didn't have to, like a Japanese commercial to pay the rent or the Rush Rush video with Paula Abdul." –
