Keanu Reeves is not crushing on Bill & Ted Face the Music co-star Samara Weaving, despite a bogus tabloid report. Gossip Cop can debunk the story. It's totally made-up.
"Keanu & Samara's On-Set Sparks" reads a headline in the latest issue of NW. The accompanying article says the actor has become infatuated with his Australian co-star on the set of the upcoming Bill & Ted sequel. "She's absolutely gorgeous and you could tell he was immediately blown away by her," a supposed source tells the magazine.
The alleged insider adds, "They have great chemistry and get along famously. They've got loads in common too and love talking about Sydney, where they've both lived for a time." The questionable tipster further contends that Reeves wants to pursue the actress, but he's holding back because she's engaged to producer Jimmy Warden. As for Weaving, she finds it "nice to have someone as handsome and talented as Keanu to look at all day," says the seemingly phony source.
The outlet also makes a point of noting that Weaving is the niece of Reeves' The Matrix co-star Hugo Weaving, who played Agent Smith in the sci-fi franchise. It seems the tabloid is attempting to make a love connection between Reeves and the actress simply because her uncle played his on-screen nemesis. Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who laughed off the magazine's premise. We're assured that Reeves isn't crushing on his engaged co-star, nor is he thinking about pursuing her.
Of course, we're not surprised by the outlet's fabricated article. NW has already proven to have little insight into the actor's love life. Back in October, Gossip Cop busted the publication for falsely claiming Reeves had been "quietly dating" Angelina Jolie since July 2017. The two stars have never been in a secret romance. This latest article also fails to mention what happened to the actor's supposed relationship with Jolie.
Meanwhile, this wouldn't be the first time a magazine has tried to link the actor to one of his colleagues. Gossip Cop recently debunked a string of false stories about Reeves dating Halle Berry, his co-star in John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum. The two stars were never an item. In May, we debunked a report about Reeves being "in love" with Speed co-star Sandra Bullock. The two are simply longtime friends. Weaving is just the latest of Reeves' co-stars to be designated as a love interest in the tabloids.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
