There's Sad Keanu and then there's Chill Keanu. And actor Keanu Reeves showcased his chill bro side in a Reddit AMA this morning promoting his upcoming John Wick film.

He talked about things we've been wondering about, like how he felt about those two intruders (ahem stalkers) he deftly dealt with in his Hollywood Hills home last month, what the heck's going on with Bill & Ted 3 (because we know we all want a new excellent adventure), and how much he loves chocolate milk. You know, the important stuff.

Here are some of the highlights:

Reeves on the stalkers: "Yeah, I guess my security wasn't good enough... it's better now! And, uh, it was really scary. The first time was at like 4 in the morning on a Saturday, and it was scary."

A glimpse into what his childhood was like: "In the summers, when the school was out, we would build go-karts. And then just ride 'em down the hills until the wheels fell off. That was a good day."

What's up with 'Bill & Ted 3': We are currently trying to...get the rights to the story, and get the go. And if that comes together, then maybe we'll get to tell the story!

He's still buddies with his 'Speed' costar: "The biggest movie star I'm friends with would be... uh... Sandra Bullock! Yeah, through the years we kinda get together, have a dinner, catch up, see how it's going."

Reeves uses 'hehe' when he writes: "Well, a fun day once was the day when they let us drive down the street smashing through cars on the bus [on the set of 'Speed']. And everyone started to scream, hehe, and then laugh when it was over, and it really bonded everyone together."

Reeves addressing the rumors about him taking on the lead role in upcoming Marvel Studios flick, 'Dr. Strange': "You know, I just cough ...I just recently started to hear about that. I didn't grow up reading the character of Dr. Strange, but the past few days, the people have been telling me about the character, and I have to call my Agent!"

Yes, he loves chocolate milk: "I do like chocolate milk. But it has to be cold. You know? It has to be cold."

Chill Keanu discusses the secret to life: "I don't know that secret! But I'm working on it."

And guess what? Sad Keanu likes Joy Division. His favorite song?: "LOVE WILL TEAR US APART by Joy Division!"
