We're so glad he can have a sense of humor about that whole Sad Keanu thing.
So, anyway, Keanu Reeves wrote a book. And it's about sadness, which is absolutely perfect considering the source.
The book, titled Ode to Happiness, started out as a joke, but after friends heard of the book, they all wanted copies.
Keanu says explains the book's creation:
"I was in my kitchen hanging out with my friend Janey, and the radio was on. And this station was playing, like, an orgy of depressing, self-pitying, nostalgic music … It was so voluptuously horrible. And I just started to write on this piece of paper, because I had this image of, you know, that moment when you take a bath, you light that candle, and you're really just kind of depressed. And it was making Janey laugh so hard, I just kept going, piling on the self-pity."
Each page in the book features a somber line in blot letters that look like they've ben smudged by tears. The ending shows a single black hole, with the matching words, "It can always be worse."
And to make things even better, he plans on making a book of dark poems. He says, "I'm considering another idea I call Haikus of Hope. Basically like, 'I want to kill myself,' and go from there."
LOLz! Who knew Keanu had such a sense of humor?
Thank goodness for his ability to laugh at himself. He just fills our lives with joy and mirth. Honestly.
