Actor Keanu Reeves has penned an over-the-top anti-self-help book as part of a joke about his gloomy reputation.
Reeves has overcome a series of great personal tragedies, including losing his longtime girlfriend in a vehicular accident, prompting the media to label the star as a sad and lonely actor.
The Matrix hunk decided to poke fun at his image by writing a dramatic, but funny tome, called Ode to Happiness, which features a variety of depressing images and phrases.
He tells PerezHilton.com, "I was in my kitchen hanging out with my friend, and the radio was on - and this station was playing, like, an orgy of depressing, self-pitying, nostalgic music.
"It was so voluptuously horrible and I just started to write on this piece of paper, because I had this image of, you know, the moment when you take a bath, you light that candle, and you’re really just kind of depressed. And it was making her laugh so hard, I just kept going, piling on the self-pity." http://www.torontosun.com/2011/06/18/reeves-pens-anti-self-help-book


Keanu Reeves Pens Severely Depressing Book

It looks like Keanu Reeves has a sense of humor when it comes to his stereotyped sadness. According to The Guardian, the often glum actor has penned a book titled, 'Ode to Happiness.' But the actor's book is far from sunny.

"I draw a hot sorrow bath. In my despair room," reads one line.

Each page of the book features a line more somber than the last -- printed in large ink blot letters that look as though they've been smudged by falling tears. The book ends with a single black hole and the words, "It can always be worse."
Quick! Somebody offer this man a role in the next Reese Witherspoon romantic comedy -- that ought to cheer up this aching actor. But not so fast, ironically, the depressing literary work wasn't originally created with the intention to depress.

"I was in my kitchen hanging out with my friend Janey, and the radio was on," Reeves said in explaining the inception of his book. "And this station was playing, like, an orgy of depressing, self-pitying, nostalgic music ... It was so voluptuously horrible. And I just started to write on this piece of paper, because I had this image of, you know, that moment when you take a bath, you light that candle, and you're really just kind of depressed. And it was making Janey laugh so hard, I just kept going, piling on the self-pity."

So self-pity for the sake of laughter and happiness? Okay, we get it -- a satirical self-help book of sorts.

Once the book was complete, Reeves was planning on keeping it on his bookshelf as merely a reminder of the good laugh but friends began demanding copies and Reeves decided to spread the joy -- or deep rooted depression -- to anyone with just over $50 to spare. So what's next for the comic disguised as a manic depressive? Reeves hopes to publish an equally dark book of poems.

"I'm considering another idea I call 'Haikus of Hope,'" Reeves pontificated. "Basically like, 'I want to kill myself,' and go from there."

Sounds like he's really got something there.

Keanu Reeves Writes The Most Depressing Book Ever

By Kelly Schremph , Hollywood.com Staff | Friday, June 17, 2011
Well folks, we knew this was going to happen sooner or later.  One too many celebrities have placed a pen in their hands and written a book.  Actor, Keanu Reeves, has joined the club and penned a book called Ode to Happiness, where one line reads, "I draw a hot sorrow bath. In my despair room,"  I'm hoping this is a poor attempt at a metaphor because I think we're traveling down a dark and twisted tunnel that not even Alice could find her way out of.  As if this world doesn't have enough depressing things to worry about, now we're expected to read about it for fun as well? 

And how did Mr. Reeves get the idea to write such a book?  According to him, "...this station was playing, like, an orgy of depressing, self-pitying, nostalgic music ... It was so voluptuously horrible. And I just started to write on this piece of paper, because I had this image of, you know, that moment when you take a bath, you light that candle, and you're really just kind of depressed."  Again with the baths -- what kind of baths has this guy been taking?  I find them very relaxing and refreshing, not morbid and depressing.  Sounds like Dr. Depression needs to take a break from the end of the world movies (The Day the Earth Stood Still and Constantine to name a few) and get himself signed up for a rom-com STAT!

But the madness doesn't stop there.  He also hopes to publish a book of dark poems.  "I'm considering another idea I call 'Haikus of Hope,'" Reeves stated. "Basically like, 'I want to kill myself,' and go from there."  Someone take this man's pen away from him ASAP!
