Keanu Reeves revealed how he felt when the photo of "Sad Keanu" was taken, and it's really relatable

If you've been on the internet, like, ever, you've seen the 'Sad Keanu' meme. The image of the legendary actor sitting on a bench with food in his hand is included in the meme. In the shot, he appears to be really sad — but is he?

Keanu finally explained all about what was going on in his thoughts when the fatal shot was taken during a recent interview with Stephen Colbert.

When he showed Colbert the photo, he stated, "I'm just eating a sandwich, guy!" "So, you're not genuinely sad in 'Sad Keanu,'" the talk show host said.

Keanu said, "I was thinking."  "I had some stuff going on. I was hungry."

The actor's meditative chew was also recorded in the first edition of the comic book BRZRKR, as Colbert pointed out. "I had no idea he was going to do it, but he did," Keanu explained. "As a result, I believe it is meta. That's how art works."

When asked why he feels he's become so endlessly memeable, Keanu's response was classic Keanu: "Sir, I have no idea... Really."
