During a press conference for his upcoming film John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, Keanu Reeves was confronted with the question all single men in their 50s love to be asked: “What does love mean to you?”

Reeves told The Jakarta Post he’s “the lonely guy,” and the internet took full advantage of the opportunity to shower him with love and affection.

“@ god PLEASE age me 25 years and give me a job in LA where keanu reeves will bump into me often and we form a friendship that slowly burns into a tentative romance,” one Twitter user wrote.

At the moment, there is no sight of a special someone in Reeves’ life, though he says he is holding onto the hope of finding love. “I don’t have anyone in my life. But if it does occur, I would respect and love the other person; hopefully it’ll happen for me,” Reeves said.

Luckily for Reeves, there are plenty of Twitter users ready to step up as a significant other if given the chance.

Reeves was further pressed about solitude but did not seem too keen on exploring the topic any deeper. Who could blame him, though?

“I’m an actor, so in terms of what you’re asking about, I have no answer,” Reeves said.

While Reeves may not be slaying in the love realm as much as he would like, the latest John Wick film has already earned $186 million worldwide, making it the highest-grossing film in the franchise. It also won top honors at the Golden Trailer Awards. They say money can’t buy happiness, but maybe it can cheer Reeves up a bit.

Update 2:29pm CT, May 31A representative for Keanu Reeves has said the article that quoted Reeves as saying he’s “the lonely guy” was entirely made up, according to MSN. The supposed interview with Reeves, which originated on, “did not happen,” the spokesperson said.

“This was pieced together from several interviews and the majority of these questions were not asked nor answered,” the spokesperson told MSN. “[The quotes] are fabricated.”
