If you've been on the internet, like, ever, you've seen the "Sad Keanu" meme.
The meme features an image of the iconic actor sitting on a bench with food in his hand. He looks very sad in the photo — but is he, really?
During a recent interview with Stephen Colbert, Keanu finally revealed all about what was going on in his head when that fateful photo was snapped.
"I'm just eating a sandwich, man!" he explained to Colbert when he brought the photo out. The talk show host then asked, "So, you're not actually sad in 'Sad Keanu'?"
"I was thinking," Keanu replied. "I had some stuff going on. I was hungry."
As Colbert also pointed out, the actor's contemplative chew was also memorialized in the first volume of the comic book BRZRKR. "I didn't know he was going to do that, but that's what he did," Keanu stated. "So, I think it's kind of meta. That's life in art."
And when Keanu was asked why he thinks he's become so endlessly memeable, his answer was very Keanu: "I have no clue, sir… Really."
