Keanu Reeves is reportedly mulling the negative aspects of fame. The actor who became one of Hollywood's biggest stars back in the 90s has admittedly struggled with becoming a household name - something that has made him feel like a caged animal some times. 

The 54-year-old actor gained fame after starring as Theodore 'Ted' Logan in 'Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure,' but that same fame has led to him being the victim of manic star spotters. Many of whom reportedly sit outside his Los Angeles mansion to grab a look at him, he revealed in an interview with The Sunday Telegraph.

Explaining proliferation of tourist vans, buses, and vehicles outside his West Hollywood home, he said: "I'll come out in the morning and get my newspaper (and they’re there). You feel like an animal in a cage." He added: "They visit everyone's homes and sit outside. They look at you like: 'There's One!' And I get it. But walking around LA, no one cares pretty much."

The 'John Wick' actor also mentioned that he meditates in order to stay calm. "I don't meditate regularly, but I highly recommend it," he said.

Speaking of John Wick, the third chapter of the franchise, titled 'John Wick: Chapter 3 - Pantebellum' is set to release this May 17. But the biggest news right now is the possible Matrix 4 that might be in the making. John Wick 3 director Chad Stahelski was reported to have said that the Wachowskis -- who directed the previous movies -- might be on for the upcoming film. However, nothing has been confirmed.

Reeves is reportedly clueless about any update on that front, but he has recently teased about an in the works sequel for the Bill and Ted franchise, entitled 'Bill and Ted Face The Music.'

Appearing on 'The Late Show With Stephen Colbert' on Friday night, Reeves spilled that the new film is set to explore what life has been like for Bill and Ted now that they are family men, and will see the two friends traveling in time as they write a song to save the universe.

The movie is slated to release on August 21, 2020.
