Keanu Reeves is officially the most underrated movie star of all time, and if you don’t believe me, you need to listen to his brilliant words regarding what happens when we die. During the most shocking short few moments of my life and the lives of many others, Keanu flips from slightly dazed surfer boy to spiritual life guru at the drop of a dime.

While discussing a myriad of topics, from Bill and Ted 3 to John Wick 3, the point at which the conversation moved towards philosophy is the moment he caught the attention of the world.

Beginning at around the 9-minute mark of the video, Reeves explains death shortly after he touches on the main premise of the new Bill and Ted movie. ‘What do you think happens when we die Keanu Reeves?’ Asked Cobert, probably not expecting what followed.

“I know that the ones who love us will miss us.”

Simple, truthful and profound, it may not have been what you expected, but when you think about it, it’s exactly everything we needed. I mean, how did we get so lucky to have Keanu?
