Keanu Reeves admits to wearing Dolly Parton’s racy Playboy outfit in a hilarious interview
Keanu Reeves needs no introduction, but when he explained what he wore on Halloween one year during a recent interview, many may not have recognized him at all.
When the actor recently appeared on the television show, ‘The Talk’ he admitted to channeling a busty bombshell before he became famous.
The 54-year-old spoke of how he donned a Dolly Parton Playboy outfit as a Halloween costume when he was still a teenager.
Explaining how it all came about Keanu said:
“There was one year, I was in performing arts high school, and Dolly Parton had done the cover of Playboy and so you know she had the bunny [ears]. I wore that for Halloween.”
“Thank you, Dolly! Yeah, so I was on a streetcar in Toronto in 1983 wearing that. Oh and stalkings!”
Fans would be happy to know that Lionsgate just released the first official poster for Keanu’s latest film, the third ‘John Wick’ movie, ‘John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum.’

Getting a clear update from Chapter 2 that got released February two years ago, the film is set to open on May 17, 2019. If the third chapter follows on the success of the previous two, then it may just be Keanu’s best performing movie to date.
John Wick: Chapter 2 earned $171 million worldwide after a $30 million launch, making it one of the situations where a sequel made more domestically and worldwide than its predecessor.

For all this fame and fortune, and lack of headlines in the matter, it would come as a surprise to most that Keanu Reeves has a private foundation that helps fund cancer research. Money is also spent on upgrading conditions at children's wards in hospitals.

He gives his earnings to charity, hospitals and the casting crew.
Gave his salary from the last Matrix movie to the cameramen and the production team and says they made the movie.
He also always uses public transport.

In the 1990s, Keanu’s sister got diagnosed with leukemia but went into remission. For Keanu it opened up another world, going through this experience with her, seeing what other families were going through.
For Keanu Reeves, the focus is on providing much-needed help through his foundation, and he has been donating and raising funds towards cancer research for many years.
With all the wonderful work he does through his foundation, it is good to know he has the time to amaze us onscreen, as he is set to do with the new ‘John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum.’ Pity we couldn't see him running around in the Dolly Parton outfit though.

This made me laugh. What a funny story. pic.twitter.com/TwqtzBObMp— Cooper Hefner (@cooperhefner) January 16, 2019
