When posing with women, including fans and other celebrities, the 54-year-old actor doesn’t put his arm around them or touch their backs, fans have noted. If anything, his hand hovers near their backs or arms, but doesn’t actually make contact.
To fans, this shows that Reeves is “considerate” and “respectful” of a woman’s “personal space” and “bodily autonomy.”
To the more cynical types, Reeves is just being “smart” in the #MeToo era by not taking any chances. As a rich and famous A-lister, he probably doesn’t want to get accused of being too familiar with a woman he doesn’t know and he doesn’t wanna touch any woman he’s not romantically attached to.
