A story that had been waiting 18 years to be told
Recently, a Twitter user known as @James_Dator shared the story of how he met Keeanu Reeves a long time ago.
“In honor of John Wick 3, I have a Keanu Reeves story. Keanu came to the movie theater I worked at in Sydney in 2001. He was working on the Matrix series at the time. It’s a quiet, Wednesday morning — almost nobody is seeing movies. I’m working at the box office, really bored and suddenly this dude walks up in jeans, a leather jacket, and a horse-riding helmet. A weird, equestrian-looking helmet. It takes me a solid 30 seconds to ignore the helmet and realize it’s Keanu Reeves. He wants to buy a ticket for From Hell, the Johnny Depp movie.
I’m so star-struck I do what any sensible 16-year-old does and tell him I’d like to give him my employee discount. This means he needs to sign my sheet and therefore I have his autograph. ’I don’t work here,’ Keanu says, seemingly confused by my offer. I’m flustered and just charge him the normal price, kicking myself after for not getting his autograph.
2 minutes later, there’s a knock on the door behind me that leads into the box office. I assume it’s my manager. It’s Keanu. ’I realized you probably wanted my autograph,’ he says. ’So I signed this.’ He hands me a receipt from the concessions stand that he signed the back of. He then casually throws an ice cream cone in the trash can and sees his movie. I realize later that he bought an ice cream cone he didn’t want, just to get receipt paper so he could scribble his autograph for a 16-year-old fool.”
And that’s not the only story online that proves what a good human being Keanu Reeves is.
Keanu is great with children.
And he loves solving riddles.
These stories can make you a fan even if you weren’t one before.
A fan couldn’t take a selfie the first time and Keanu stopped to take another picture.
After filming a scene for John Wick 3 with a bunch of child actors, Keanu stuck around to meet and take pictures with all the kids.
“Went to see John Wick 3 tonight and this guy happened to be in the audience too!”
Fans trespassed on Keanu’s property back in the 1990s. Instead of calling the police, he had a beer with them.
Not all heroes wear capes.
Bonus: Keanu Reeves let a woman sit down on the subway.
