Man approached Keanu Reeves and told him his mom was a huge fan, so he asked ‘Do you have your phone?’

Keanu Reeves, an outstanding actor, is also a remarkable human being. This is evident by the many stories of him being a kind and gentle guy.

Recently, a Redditor’s answer to the question, “What’s something a famous person has done that just completely changed how you viewed them?” went viral because it detailed yet another good-natured act that Reeves pulled off.

This time, the recipient of the actor’s stunt is an 80-year-old woman.

Reddit user afdc92 shared a story on Reeves with his grandma. His grandma had a huge crush on the actor, as he resembled his grandfather’s grandfather when he young. Reeves claimed that his grandma had seen every movie with Reeves.

In her 70s, she suffered a stroke and spent the rest of her life at home. Watching movies became her hobby and “new friends” since she rarely got to see any of her own.

Soon after “The Matrix” was shown in theaters, the Redditor’s uncle was in Los Angeles for business and was eating at a “really swanky” restaurant. And, as fate would have him, Reeves entered that same restaurant with a female.

His uncle didn’t want to pass up on the chance of telling Reeves about his mom, so after the actor finished his meal, he came up to their table.

“I don’t usually do this, but I just wanted you to know that my 80-year-old mother loves you and has seen all of your movies. You remind her of my dad,” the man said.

Then, Reeves asked if he had a cellphone on him, and after confirming that he did, the actor said: “Give her a call, I want to talk to her.”

“He spoke with my grandmother for several minutes and it absolutely made her year. She was so isolated and his genuine kindness to her and interest in her showed what a truly amazing man he is,” the Redditor concluded his story.

There’s really no way to know if a story posted on Reddit is true, but people agree that it’s pretty believable, especially because Reeves is the subject. It’s something he would definitely do.

As another Redditor wrote: “There is virtually no positive story I would not instantly believe about Keanu Reeves. It’s been conditioned, after 20 years of just reading stories about random, wholesome acts of non-showy kindness.”

Reeves is known for being one the most down-to earth and kindest Hollywood stars. Fame could easily get in one’s head, especially for an actor of his stature, but not Reeves. He has always kept his feet on the ground, even though his name is well-known.

He hasn’t been involved in any scandalous incident or controversy throughout his nearly four-decade career, which says a lot about his character. It’s no wonder he’s respected and beloved by many people, both in the industry and outside.

Reeves became famous after starring in movies like “Speed,” “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure,” and “The Matrix.” But his star shone even brighter when people got to know him as a humble and relatable guy based on the stories people say about him.

He also said that he was not one to obsess over material possessions in a 2006 interview.

“I’ve made a lot of money, but I want to enjoy life and not stress myself building my bank account. I give a lot away and live simple, mostly from a suitcase in hotels. We all know that good health is more important.”

Keanu Reeves amazes me every time he appears. As one fan said, he’s truly breathtaking!
