Keanu Reeves surprised by Matthew Perry’s insults in his memoir: report

Apparently, even Keanu Reeves was surprised by Matthew Perry asking why he’s “walking among us.”

“Keanu thought the comments were coming out of left field,” a source told Us Weekly on Friday of the ‘Matrix’ star’s multiple mentions in Perry’s new memoir.

“It kind of backfired on Matthew anyway, which is why he had to apologize,” the source added.

“I’m actually a huge Keanu fan. I just picked a random name, my mistake. I apologize,” he told People. “I should have used my own name instead. square.”

In the book, Perry details his collaboration with the “John Wick” star’s best friend, River Phoenix, on the 1988 film “A Night in the Life of Jimmy Reardon.”

Perry and Phoenix played best friends in the film and became close in real life, but the ‘Stand by Me’ star died of a drug overdose at age 23 in 1993.

Perry doubles down on Reeves’ later dig in memories when he recalls his initial reaction to his “Almost Heroes” co-star Chris Farley’s fatal overdose in 1997.

“I drilled a hole in the wall of Jennifer Aniston’s dressing room when I found out,” he wrote. “Keanu Reeves walks among us.

Perry and Reeves have never publicly had a falling out, so the harsh comments have turned heads and even led to speculation that the former has a bizarre obsession with the latter.

Elsewhere in his explosive memoir, Perry details “almost” death in 2018 when his colon burst, his history of unfortunate encounters with celebrities like Cameron Diaz, Julia Roberts and “Friends” co-star Aniston as well as his decades-long struggle with drug addiction and alcoholism.
