Actor Keanu Reeves is known as a person with a golden heart. He is famous in the entertainment industry globally for being the most humble, the most down to earth and the most approachable star.
He gave yet another glimpse of his patience and benevolence at New York airport, when he was engaged in conversation with a young fan who bombarded with a series of rapid questions.
To his credit, Keanu answered every one of the young boy’s questions honestly and patiently and then when the boy ran out of steam, Keanu repeated the favour and asked the boy a series of rapid questions.
His banter with the fan was shared by TV producer Andrew Kimmel who took to Twitter and posted Keanu’s picture with the fan as well as a verbatim post of the exchange of banter between the fan and Keanu.
In the picture shared by Kimmel, Keanu signed an autograph as the boy stood next to him. Keanu was sporting a mask on his face and he was dressed casually in denims, black-T-shirt, grey jacket and red cap.
In the first tweet, Kimmel shared the photo and wrote, “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…”
Here is the tweet:
Kimmel then tweeted the questions asked by the boy as well as Keanu’s patient replies. “Kid: Why were you in London? KR: Filming a documentary. Kid: I saw online you were at the Grand Prix (pronouncing the x) KR: Yes, the Grand Prix (in a French accent, without correcting him). F1! Race cars! Kid: Do you drive? KR: Not F1, but I like riding motorcycles.”
Kimmel then further wrote, “Kid: Do you live in NY? KR: I live in LA. Kid: How long are you gonna be in New York? KR: Four days! No… five. Five days! Kid: Why are you in NY? KR: Gonna see a Broadway show! Kid: What Broadway show? KR: American Buffalo! Mamet! Kid: Where are you staying in NY? KR: Midtown!”
Kimmel further said that by this time, the boy had run out of steam and questions, so Keanu started grilling him – “Why were you in Europe? What galleries did you go to in Paris? What was your favourite? 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!”
Kimmel’s tweet soon went viral and netizens were all praises for Keanu’s kindness. Keanu Reeves is anyway well known for his kindness and benevolence. Last year it was reported that he gifted four stuntmen from his ‘John Wick: Chapter 4’ movie, personalised watches from Rolex. There was even an engraved message in them, which read, “The John Wick Five. Thank you. Keanu. JW4. 2021”.
Keanu Reeves will be seen next in the fourth installment of ‘John Wick’ which is slated for release in 2023.
