If it wasn’t already obvious, Keanu Reeves is a very, really kind guy.
You’ve probably heard the tales and seen the videos unless you’ve been living under a rock. You’ll realise that despite his megastar status, millions of wealth, and tremendous renown, Reeves is a down-to-earth person who has never thought of himself as above compassion and generosity.
Every few months, Reeves does something new to remind us that he’s the gold standard when it comes to A-list celebrities putting others before of themselves and acting as though they actually care about the common public.
Reeves, well-known for his work on blockbusters, has recently shown his ability as a comic book writer. Along with Matt Kindt, he co-created and co-wrote the series BRZRKR, which was the biggest single-selling issue since Star Wars in 2015.
A nine-year-old Matrix enthusiast approached Keanu at a recent book signing to inform him that the Matrix star was his “favorite actor.” What was Keanu’s reaction?
It’s as healthy as you’d expect.
When your celebrity shines as brightly as Keanu Reeves’, you can bet there aren’t many days when you don’t run across someone who wants you to take a picture with them or sign an autograph.
We may imagine that the rigmarole must make us weary at times—after all, it’s only reasonable to think that having individuals desiring a piece of you all the time would wear you down—but witnessing Keanu engage with his fans would never lead you to believe that.
Over the years, the 58-year-old has demonstrated his enormous heart and compassion on numerous occasions. Consider the time he answered a boy’s rapid-fire inquiries after a lengthy journey with compassion. Or how about the time Sandra Bullock stated that he surprised her with champagne and truffles after she confessed to him that she’d never eaten them before?
We could keep going. The point is, Keanu Reeves is a really kind person, so it’s no wonder that he’s making the rounds on the internet again after a contact with a nine-year-old fan.
According to accounts, the little youngster approached Reeves during a book signing and told him, “I’m such a big fan!”
Reeves can be heard asking the boy’s name in a video released by IGN. Keanu introduces himself when the nine-year-old says “Noah” (as if there was any need).
“You’re probably my favorite actor in the world!” In the video, Noah says.
Keanu is then seen with a radiant grin. “Oh my gosh, Noah, thank you!” he exclaims.
The 58-year-old actor then inquired as to whether his young admirer had seen Duke Caboom, the doll Reeves portrayed in Toy Story 4.
“He’s definitely my favorite character!” Noah responds.

Keanu’s excitement shines through in these exchanges, not simply his politeness. Fans were quick to point out that the John Wick actor seemed to be just as delighted to engage with people as they were with him.
They say you should never meet your heroes, but we believe it’s safe to ignore such advice in the case of Keanu.
