Keanu Reeves on the Time Alice Cooper Babysat for Him: ‘There Was Fake Poo in the Fridge’

It’s a small and sometimes very bizarre world. During an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, John Wick 2 star Keanu Reeves did his best to reflect on a very famous babysitter he had in his youth.

Fallon quizzed Reeves about the story that the original shock rocker, Alice Cooper, once looked after him in his youth. The host asked Reeves if it was at all a scary experience, holding up an album cover with Cooper in full stage gear. “Well he didn’t look like THAT,” said Reeves, referring to the cover of Cooper’s Welcome 2 My Nightmare that Fallon was displaying.

The actor admitted that his recollection of Cooper babysitting him was fuzzy at best, but it’s something that he was informed of once he got older and could comprehend who the iconic rocker was.

“I grew up in Toronto and I lived on a street called Hazleton and there was a recording studio Nimbus 9 and my mother was in costume design. She was in rock and roll and she was in the business and they had friends and he had friends and Alice Cooper, I’m told, babysat me. I mean I don’t know how that could possibly happen, but it did,” said the actor.

While Reeves says he was so small he struggles to remember Cooper overseeing him, he does recall, “I remember there was fake poo in the fridge. Like somehow, that connected like that.”

While Cooper was just starting out in music at the time, he went on to a very successful career and Reeves has obviously had a very fulfilling acting career as well.
