How long has it been since we’ve seen Keanu Reeves without longer, shaggy hair? A while, right? 

Keanu is still in Berlin working on The Matrix 4 and was photographed on Sunday with a buzzed head getting dropped off at work by girlfriend Alexandra Grant. I’m guessing this is obviously tied to Neo’s story. Most of us probably know the story up and down by now, at least the first movie, and when Neo is out of the Matrix – that is, his true self – his hair is not styled, it’s a practical close crop.

Looks good on him, non? I feel like we can see his face a lot more. And it’s not like he doesn’t have a great face. You can see more photos here. And it’s great to see how happy he is. This smile! The smile happens after he leans down to give Alexandra a kiss goodbye as he heads to work. Obviously they’re delighted with each other. It’s delightful how delighted they are with each other!

That’s it. That’s all I got. That’s what we need though! It is f-cked up out there! We have to take the delight when it comes!
