Amazing Story About Keanu Reeves Giving A Fan His Autograph Has Gone Viral

We love Keanu Reeves in John Wick 3 but oh boy do we love him more irl. Especially after he bought an ice cream.

Yes, a Hollywood actor bought an ice cream. Only he didn't buy it for the brain freeze potential but because he wanted to give a fan his autograph. Cute and not very John Wick-like either. But we'll let him off.

The recipient of this genuine act of kindness was James Dator, who also happens to write for SBNation, and shared the story on Twitter.

In his first tweet he doesn't give much away but then goes on to set the scene: "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."


Employee discount for Keanu Reeves. You or I might would have taken full advantage of that but not Keanu - probably because he knew the story would have broke and he'd be called a 'money-grabbing dick head'. Not by us, obviously.

James continued by outlining Keanu's humble response:




Cute but also, very risky of Keanu - especially if the bloke was just really shocked that a grown man was getting around with a horse riding helmet under his arm.

This urged people to tell their own Keanu-based tales. Humans always have to one up other humans, don't they?

Another added: "My mom played his mom in a movie once so I guess that makes me almost his brother? Anyway, yes yes, she said he was a very sweet guy."

Ok, that guy wins.
