Keanu Reeves interview with Roman Kemp is being called ‘the most awkward of all time’
| Last updated
An interview between Keanu Reeves and Roman Kemp is being called ‘the most awkward of all time’ after the British star decided to put some slightly more, um, unusual questions to the John Wick actor.
Kemp, 30, got a chance to sit down with 58-year-old Reeves ahead of the release of the highly anticipated John Wick: Chapter 4.
The interview, conducted for his radio show on Capital FM, included a series of surreal questions – some of which hinged on nods to very niche corners of British culture.
Kemp began: “Who would win in a fight, would it be John Wick or Joe Wicks?”
The question appeared to be met by baffled silence from Reeves, although whether this was down to genuine confusion or clever editing, we’re not too sure.
Holding up a photo of hardware chain Wickes, Kemp continued: “The hardware store Wickes... Do you think John Wick would know how much would a halogen light bulb cost?”
Finally, he said: “Over eight times you get cast as the name John – John, Johnny, John, Johnny Utah, Don John, John, John, John, John, Jonathan Harker.
“How many times are you called John?”
Again, the edit of the video showed Reeves looking speechless.
Capital FM posted the clip on Instagram, writing: “@romankemp got the chance to interview Keanu Reeves and as you can see it was full of hard-hitting questions…”
In the video, the radio station added: “Is this the most awkward interview of all time!?”
It seems many fans agree – with one commenting: “Please tell me these weren’t the questions.”
Someone else wrote: “Oh my goodness, that’s utter cringe. Keanu is such a lovely gentleman, I felt for him big time watching this!!”
Another said they ‘had to turn over to Capital Dance’ after hearing the interview, while a fourth added: “He’s about to kill you.”
Reeves reprises his iconic role as John Wick in the fourth instalment, which is released in cinemas later this week, with Ian McShane also returning as Winston and the late Lance Reddick as Charon.
They'll be joined by the likes of Bill Skarsgård, who plays The Marquis de Gramont, a member of the High Table whose position is challenged by John Wick, Shamier Anderson as The Tracker, Laurence Fishburne as The Bowery King, and Clancy Brown as The Harbinger.
John Wick: Chapter 4 is set to be released on March 24.
