We’re not going to reveal our sources, but word around town is that the kitten actor that has the world fawning in the new Key and Peele comedy Keanu has also become one of Hollywood’s biggest (and most troubled) divas.
“He’s sort of a dick.” That’s how Keanu’s costar Jason Mitchell (Straight Outta Compton) put it in a shocking new interview with Yahoo Movies (watch above).
Will Forte (MacGruber) echoed those sentiments, and then took it a step further. “I will not work with him again,” he said bluntly.
Both cited “trailer issues” with the four-legged film star, who they said would often hole up in his trailer and not emerge for days on end. At the root of Keanu’s difficulties, however, appears to be a dark, raging battle with catnip.
“[The film’s distributor] Warner Bros. told him, 'You’re done, and so is your catnip supply,” Keegan-Michael Key spilled, adding that the actors attempted to stage an intervention.
Ultimately, Keanu ended up in rehab. And even that couldn’t bring him to the light. “He brought catnip into the facility,” Jordan Peele revealed.
It appears Keanu’s career could be ending as soon as it began. "He’s made his bed,“ Peele said, to which Key finished: "And now he’s sleeping in it.”
Keanu is now in theaters everywhere.
