Keanu Reeves’ heartwarming interaction with a young child at an airport has gone viral on social media.
That matrix Star was spotted on a flight from London to New York after apparently being in the country to film a documentary.
Upon arriving at his destination, Reeves was approached by a young boy, who then peppered the actor with a “series of rapid-fire questions.”
The encounter was detailed by TV producer Andrew Kimmel in a tweet thread that quickly went viral.
“Keanu Reeves was on my flight from London to NYC today,” he revealed. “A little boy asked for an autograph in the luggage and then started firing off a series of rapid-fire questions. Keanu happily answered each and every one…
“Child: Why were you in London? KR: Make a documentary. Kid: I saw online that you were at the Grand Prix (pronouncing the x) KR: Yes, at the Grand Prix (with a French accent without correcting it). F1! racing cars! Child: do you drive? KR: Not F1, but I like to ride a motorbike.”
Eventually, the kid started to “run out of questions,” leading Reeves to lovingly “grill” him, asking him questions like, “Why were you in Europe?” “What galleries did you visit in Paris?” and “What was your favorite?”
“The man couldn’t have been nicer, especially after an international flight,” Kimmel added. “I thought I’d share that because the guy is a class and little moments like this can make such a big difference in people’s lives. We need more Keanus!”
In recent years, Reeves has become known for his benevolent off-screen persona.
Back in 2021, he was praised for gifting four of his John Wick: Chapter 4 Stuntmen Personalized Rolex Watches.
At the end of the shooting he had the objects engraved with the message: “The John Wick Five. Many Thanks. keanu JW4. 2021”
Reeves’ reaction to being dubbed “the nicest man in Hollywood” went viral online last year.
