Unrecognisable Keanu Reeves steps out in mullet, huge beard and crop top

This story was first published in August 2019.

Keanu Reeves fans are baffled by a photo showing him sporting a truly bizarre outfit.

The 54-year-old is currently filming Bill & Ted Face the Music, the long-awaited sequel to cult comedy classics Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey.

Snapped stepping out of his trailer on set in New Orleans, Reeves seems to have undergone an extreme screen makeover.

The man rarely seen without his signature shaggy shoulder-length locks now has a sky-high, back-combed mullet with shaved sides. It's business in the front and party at the back, with some untamed tendrils snaking their way down the 6-foot beefcake's neck.

To complement the bold hairstyle, Reeves' typically modest dark facial hair has expanded into an enormous fluffy beard that stretches from ear to ear.

In the photo that has rocked the internet, Reeves appears to have rolled up his tight white shirt to form a makeshift crop top.

It's unknown whether he was in costume as famous slacker and musician Ted 'Theodore' Logan or if he just liked the look.

Regardless, social media is quite taken with the ensemble, with Twitter users calling it "breathtaking" and "surfer viking" chic.

"Honestly I am here for this Keanu phase as long as Keanu is happy and at peace with himself and the world," one wise fan said.
