“If I found our kitchen had been cleaned overnight and was told ’Keanu sat on the train for 2 hours to do our kitchen, wouldn’t accept any money’, I’d believe it,” a Reddit user eloquently captured the inherent kindness that defines the actor, Keanu Reeves. In a heartwarming incident, our beloved Keanu managed to make an 80-year-old woman’s entire year by performing a single, seemingly effortless act of goodwill.
Grandma has been a devoted fan of his for a long time.
The user’s 80-year-old grandma harbored a long-standing infatuation with Keanu, as he bore a striking resemblance to her late husband in his youth. Having been confined to her home after suffering a stroke in her early 70s, movies became her primary source of hobby and entertainment for nearly a decade. Naturally, the grandma gravitated towards all things related to Keanu.
In a fortuitous turn of events, the user’s uncle unexpectedly encountered Keanu.
Following the release of The Matrix, the user’s uncle found himself on a business trip in Los Angeles. While dining at a restaurant, he was pleasantly surprised to spot Keanu accompanied by a woman. Seizing the opportunity, once the actor had completed his meal, the uncle approached him and uttered the following words: “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.”
Keanu’s response was truly priceless.
Reeves asked the uncle for a phone saying, “Give her a call, I want to talk to her.” He spoke with the user’s grandmother for several minutes, and it “absolutely made her year.” For the grandma, who often experienced feelings of isolation, Keanu’s act of kindness and genuine interest served as a much-needed breath of fresh air. Not only did it brighten her spirits, but it also reaffirmed her belief in Keanu’s heart of gold.
Keanu’s actions were unquestioned.
It’s widely acknowledged that any positive account involving him is unquestionably true. The actor’s reputation for spontaneous acts of kindness continues to endear him to his fans. And without a doubt, there are countless tales about Keanu. Here’s another one: when faced with an emergency landing, instead of opting for a private ride, he chose to share a bus with fellow passengers.
