Keanu Reeves has once again caused a network hit. A passenger reports on Twitter how he willingly answers a boy’s hail of questions.
the essentials in brief
- Actor Keanu Reeves has long been an internet darling because of his personality.
- Now, a viral tweet shows Reeves holding an impromptu one-person fan meetup.
Keanu Reeves (57) is known for his friendly and courteous manner. A series of tweets by TV producer Andrew Kimmel once again proves that he likes to take time for his followers. He met the Hollywood star during a plane trip and observed an endearing encounter.
“Keanu Reeves was on my flight from London to NYC today,” the TV producer wrote. «A young boy asked for an autograph at baggage claim and then began firing off a series of quick questions. Keanu kindly responded to each one.”
Kimmel posted a photo of the brief fan meetup, and then shared a series of sample questions and answers from the conversation.
«Child: Why were you in London? KR: Make a documentary.
Child: I saw online that you were at the Grand Prix (pronounce the ‘x’) KR: Yes, the Grand Prix (with French accent without correcting it). F1! racing cars!
Child: do you drive? KR: Not F1, but I like to ride a motorcycle.”
Reeves went on to explain to the curious kid that he was in New York for five days and was going to see a Broadway show.
“We need more Keanu Reeves!”
“The man could not have been nicer – and that after an international flight,” the producer enthusiastically summed up in another message. “I thought I had to share this because the guy has class and little moments like this can make such a big difference in people’s lives. We need more Keanus!”
At the end, the observer of the scene asked for a selfie with the star. Reeves also complied with this request.
Reeves is always part of internet hype. For example, his brief cameo appearance in the Netflix film “Always Be My Maybe” became a huge net hit.
A speech from 2019 at the E3 computer game fair also went viral. A visitor called out to Reeves at the time: “You are stunning!” To which Reeves replied: “You are stunning, you are all stunning!”
