Excellent actor with cult roles in sagas such as Matrix Where John Wick, Keanu Reeves is best known for being one of the nicest public figures in the world. And it proves once again that this reputation is not the result of chance.
New proof that Keanu Reeves’ reputation is not usurped
If you still doubted the kindness of Keanu Reeves, this anecdote told by TV producer Andrew Kimmel should convince you!
Keanu Reeves was on my flight from London to NYC today. A young boy asked for an autograph at baggage & then began to fire off a series of rapid-fire questions. Keanu happily responded to every single one… pic.twitter.com/T7m7PciL5C
Keanu Reeves was on my flight from London to New York City today. A young boy asked him for an autograph at the baggage allowance and then proceeded to blast him with a series of questions at a frantic pace. Keanu happily responded to each of them…
From the reasons that pushed Keanu Reeves to go to London, to those that made him take a flight to New York, not spending the time he will spend there and the project he is currently working on, the actor’s journey was scrutinized by the slightly sticky but visibly endearing fan: “At one point the boy had exhausted all his questions, so Keanu started to question him [à son tour] : Why are you in Europe? Which galleries did you visit in Paris? […]’“. Not happy to have taken the time to respond to a fan, the interpreter of Neo or even John Wick even took the time to restart the conversation with this one!
“We need more keanus”
As the author of this thread points out, the stars probably do not realize the enormous influence they can have on their fans and the happiness they can bring them simply by exchanging a few words with them.
The man could not have been nicer, especially after an international flight. I thought I’d share this because the dude is a class act and little moments like this can make such a big difference in people’s lives. We need more Keanus!

Once the 57-year-old actor was “released” from his extensive interrogation, he could have finally breathed a little. It was without counting on Andrew Kimmel, the man who told the anecdote on Twitter, who wanted to immortalize the moment by claiming a small photo with him. We understand it.
And yes, I geeked out a little and asked for a photo. I mean… had to. Have a happy 4th everyone! pic.twitter.com/JVR5VTPQHz
If from home, we probably think that Keanu Reeves would have preferred to have some peace of mind after his quick but intense exchange with a fan, we would probably have all done the same and asked for a souvenir photo!
