There was a really great hamburger place called Licks. I really used to love hanging out by the grade school I used to go to, I played a lot of street hockey and basketball there. We had wonderful parks, Ramsden Park, we had chestnut fights running around Ramsden Park.

Homegrown celeb Keanu Reeves revealed some of his favourite Toronto haunts on Monday’s AMA (“Ask Me Anything”) fan chat on Reddit. Along with his love for parks, conker fights and the city’s reportedly floundering burger chain, Keanu dished on potential upcoming movie sequels (Speed: no; Bill and Ted 3: yes, there’s even a script); his thoughts on the Sad Keanu meme (“I think that a picture can tell a thousand words, and none of them can be right”); his fondness for high-falutin’ literature (Dostoyevsky, Proust, Updike); his propensity for rockin’ out sans instrument (“Once in a while, the air guitar comes out”); and his preternaturally youthful complexion (“Yeah, for me that’s something inherited I guess”). He also shared this Point Break–worthy nugget of wisdom on getting by in the biz/life: “it’s easy to stay grounded. The ground is very close. And we walk on it every day.” Amen to that. [Reddit]
