One wouldn't think country music legend Dolly Parton and John Wick star Keanu Reeves have a lot in common, but it turns out they once wore the same outfit, years ago. For Halloween 1983, Reeves had a certain iconic look in mind: Parton's famous Playboy cover shoot.
Hanging out backstage before CBS' The Talk, Parton got a preview as to what the audience was about to hear.
She wrote in her post:
"A few weeks ago backstage at @thetalkcbs I got to reconnect with Keanu Reeves. I think he said something about wearing a pair of bunny ears that used to be mine? 😉 🐰"
Cooper Hefner sounded off on Twitter, confirming that Reeve's mother was working onset the day of Dolly's shoot, and that she had ended up with the outfit after everything was over. So it's true: Reeves wasn't just wearing an imitation, he was wearing the exact same set of clothes.
Reeves told the story as well:
"I was in performing arts high school and Dolly Parton had done the cover of Playboy, and so she had the bunny outfit. I wore that for Halloween. Thank you Dolly! So I was on a streetcar in Toronto in 1983 wearing that, oh, and in stockings."
Unfortunately, Reeves claims there's "no evidence" from his time dressed as Dolly, but Twitter wished that wasn't the case:
With Parton and Reeves being two of the internet's favorite stars, this story was almost too much for many to handle:
The only way to improve the John Wick series is probably to have Keanu dressed in Dolly's Playboy outfit the whole time.
Fans never expected to see Dolly and Keanu spending so much time together, but they were beyond glad it happened.
Reeves also continues to mystify with his apparently ageless body.
Though he sadly won't be wearing his bunny ears, you catch Keanu Reeves in the upcoming John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum.
