Conversations: Keanu Reeves

Keanu Reeves talks about getting animated for "A Scanner Darkly," starting therapy and what's on his (impressive!) reading list.

For a guy who says he hasn't worked in over a year, it's been a busy couple of weeks for Keanu Reeves. Two weeks ago, he reunited with "Speed" costar Sandra Bullock for the romance/thriller "The Lake House," and on Friday, he appears in Richard Linklater's rotoscoped adaptation of Philip K. Dick's "A Scanner Darkly" (both movies finished filming over a year ago). During a roundtable about "Scanner" at the Cannes Film Festival recently, Keanu opened up about treading the strange ground between live action and animation -- "For Robert Downey Jr., when he gets nominated, is going to be for best performance in an animation?" -- but admits he's been busy in his time off: "What have I done with my year? Good question. I started some therapy -- I was doing personal work."
