If it wasn’t already abundantly clear, Keanu Reeves is a really, really good human being.
If you are not isolated from the world, you have probably heard the stories and seen the videos. You know that despite his high status as a megastar, millions of dollars, and immense fame, Reeves has always been a man who did not consider himself above compassion and kindness.
Every few months it seems that Reeves does something new to remind us that he is the gold standard among A-list celebrities, who don’t put themselves above others and act like they actually care about people.
Recently, Reeves, famous for his roles in blockbuster movies, has demonstrated his skill in comic book writing as well. Along with Matt Kindt, he co-created and co-wrote the series called BRZRKR, which has become the highest-selling single issue since Star Wars in 2015.
During the last book launch, a 9-year-old fan of the series approached Keanu and said he was the boy’s ‘favourite actor’. What was Keanu’s reaction?
As you would expect, his reaction was very friendly.
When your star shines as brightly as Keanu Reeves’, it’s safe to say that almost every day you meet people who want a photo with you or an autograph.
Of course, you can imagine that such turmoil is sometimes tiring – after all, constant requests from fans can be exhausting – but watching Keanu interact with his fans, you’d never think he’d get tired of it.
There have been several occasions over the years where the 58-year-old has demonstrated his immense heart and compassion. One such instance was when he kindly answered a young boy’s rapid-fire questions after a long flight. Another example is when Sandra Bullock revealed that he surprised her with champagne and truffles after she confided in him that she had never tried them.
We could go on and on. The point is, Keanu Reeves is a genuinely good human being, so it should come as small surprise that he’s once again doing the rounds on the internet following an interaction with a nine-year-old fan.
As per reports, the young boy in question approached Reeves at a book signing, telling the actor “I’m such a big fan!”
In footage shared by IGN, Reeves can be heard asking the boy his name. When the nine-year-old says “Noah”, Keanu then introduces himself too (like there was any need).
“You’re probably my favourite actor in the whole world!” Noah says in the clip.
Keanu can then be seen wearing a beaming smile. “Oh my gosh, Noah, thank you!” he says.
The 58-year-old actor then gave his young fan a mini quiz, asking him if he’d seen Duke Caboom – the toy voiced by Reeves in Toy Story 4.
“Yeah, he’s my favourite character!” Noah replies.
It’s not just Keanu’s politeness that shows through in these interactions, but his sheer enthusiasm. Fans were quick to highlight the fact that the John Wick star always appears to be just as happy to interact with others as they are to interact with him.
They say you should never meet your idols, but we think it’s safe to disregard that advice where Keanu is concerned.
