9) River Phoenix & Keanu Reeves in My Own Private Idaho (1991)
When River Phoenix and Keanu Reeves starred in My Own Private Idaho, a film about male hustlers, it was 1991 and considered controversial to have hetero teen idols as gay characters. But director Gus Van Sant crafted a beautiful and tragic love story that obviously did not hurt Keanu’s career. The film is Van Sant’s masterpiece and an early indie film to portray desire between men.
