Keanu Reeves recently spoke out in a Reddit AMA that he took the red pill. He didn't literally consume it, but the actor acquired the red pill from the set. The iconic Matrix series had many memorable lines and props. However, there are hardly any props that are as memorable as the blue and red pill. In the Reddit AMA, fans were able to ask the well-known actor questions about his career and experience working in films. They also got the chance to ask personal questions, such as Keanu Reeve's preferences for food and other things.
In the recent AMA, Keanu Reeves opened up about a little-known fact from his time working on the famous series. The Hollywood superstar reveals that he is now in possession of the infamous "red pill" from the set. This red pill is a reference to a pivotal moment in The Matrix, where the lead character, Neo, is given a choice between taking a red pill or a blue pill. The red pill represents a willingness to see the truth. The blue pill, on the other hand, allows Neo to wake up and attend his old life as normal.
Keanu Reeves Owns The First Red Pill
One of the questions asked by a fan was whether or not the actor ever stole something from the set. In Keanu fashion, he cheekily responded that he was in possession of the red pill. However, the movie star clarifies that he did not steal it. Instead, it was given to him by the directors of the movie. In a role as life-changing as Neo was, it is no surprise that Keanu Reeves wants something to remember it by. The first Matrix film came out in 1999, and the red pill has been in Keanu's possession ever since.
Keanu Reeves also talks about other items in his possession. He also has the watch and wedding ring from the John Wick series. Along with those, he kept the sword from 47 Ronin. Keanu has one of the most devoted fan bases that an actor can hope to have. People admire his ability to remain down-to-earth despite his massive stardom. The actor continues to show his humility even as he is answering the onslaught of questions brought to him on the Reddit AMA.
