Keanu desperate to shake off 'The Matrix'
09:30 03 March 2005
Keanu Reeves has begged fans not to compare his new movie with 'The Matrix'.
The handsome actor stars as supernatural detective John Constantine in new sci-fi horror blockbuster 'Constantine', but admits he is worried movie-goers will readily dismiss the flick as a 'Matrix' copy.
He said: "Hopefully people won't sit there and go, 'He's wearing a black coat, he's wearing a black coat."
Reeves, who stars opposite Rachel Weisz, also says he loved filming the new film as he got to perform a variety of dangerous stunts and even got the chance to get up close and personal with his sexy co-star in a bath.
He added to Britain's Nuts magazine: "At one point, I have to hold Rachel Weisz down in a bathtub, and in another part I got punched by a demon and went flying backwards. I almost went out of frame it was great fun."
