Keanu Reeves in Paula Abdul's ''Rush, Rush'' Video

Paula Abdul, Keanu Reeves

We admit it: We love Keanu Reeves in Paula Abdul's ''Rush, Rush'' video

Ostensibly inspired by ''Rebel Without a Cause,'' this soft-focus masterwork showcases Keanu's pre-''Matrix'' emotional spectrum: that look of longing as he pines for Paula in the planetarium! The grimace of pain as he presses a cold milk bottle to his bruised cheek! His heartfelt response to whether he's ever been in love! (''If I was, I didn't know it.'') It's almost enough to make us forget that Keanu and Paula are making out in an abandoned mansion minutes after her boyfriend DRIVES OFF A CLIFF.
