Keanu Reeves has said that he thinks “it’s nice” that people attempted to mod Cyberpunk 2077 so that they could have sex with his character.
During an interview with The Verge for The Matrix Resurrections, the actor was asked about his experiences with Cyberpunk 2077. While Reeves admitted that he hasn’t played the game in which he stars as Johnny Silverhand, he seemed genuinely happy to learn that players had tried to mod the game in order to get down and dirty with his character.
When Reeves found out that players had been modding the game to sleep with him, he fist-pumped the air in joy while receiving a pat on the back from his Matrix co-star Carrie-Anne Moss. When asked how he felt about that kind of attention, Reeves said “Oh my god, it’s always nice, when it’s nice, and…y’know.”
Unfortunately for Reeves that joy was short-lived; while the mod did exist in the game for a short period of time, CD Projekt Red removed it earlier this year. In a statement at the time, the developer said, “When it comes to models of real people whom we’ve asked to participate in the game, we kindly ask you to refrain from using them in any situation that might be found offensive if you don’t have their explicit permission.”

While Reeves didn’t give his explicit permission for modders to create new ways for players to digitally screw him in the game, he did seem saddened by the news that it was no longer possible. While it may be that Reeves is quite happy for players to carry out their fantasies with his digital self, the same certainly isn’t true for Moss. “I on the other hand say ‘No thank you!'” she clarified before Reeves interjected with his own thoughts on digital porn and members-only content.
