Bloated Keanu Reeves Looks Almost Unrecognizable at Cannes (PHOTO)
To use an iconic Keanu Reeves film quote: "Whoa."
The 48-year-old Speed actor has been photographed promoting his new film at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival — and he's not quite rockin' the "excellent" bod that he was once known for.
Keanu is in France to stump for his directorial debut, The Man of Tai Chi, and photographs taken of him show him with a heavier frame than we're used to. Apparently, he's been ingesting more than just that red pill that his character took in The Matrix.
The photo shown here was taken on May 20.

Keanu — who has never been married — rose to fame in the early-'90s as a Hollywood hunk after such hits as Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and Point Break. His last studio film was 2008's The Day the Earth Stood Still.
His samurai film, 47 Ronin, is set to hit theaters later this year but has long been delayed amid budget issues.
Don't worry, Keanu — we love you no matter what you look like. And you'll always be the sexiest bomb-defusing specialist we know.
