Keanu Reeves Is the Essence of Wholesomeness in This Airport Encounter with a Young Fan
"We need more Keanus"
The Toronto actor's flight from London landed in New York City yesterday (July 4) to the bewilderment of a young fan, who couldn't help but strike up an extremely wholesome tête-à-tête.
TV producer Andrew Kimmel, who snapped a photo of the sweet moment, tweeted that the John Wick star happily responded to every question from his admirer, and then began to fire back some of his own. The play-by-play, also tweeted by Kimmel, is exactly how you'd expect this conversation to go.
Kid: Why were you in London?— Andrew Kimmel (@andrewkimmel) July 4, 2022
KR: Filming a documentary.
Kid: I saw online you were at the Grand Prix (pronouncing the x)
KR: Yes, the Grand Prix (in a French accent, without correcting him). F1! Race cars!
Kid: Do you drive?
KR: Not F1, but I like riding motorcycles.
He also asked the actor if he lives in New York, how long he's going to be visiting the state, the reason for his travel and which Broadway show he was going to see, all of which Reeves graciously answered.
"By this time the kid was running out of questions, so Keanu started grilling him," Kimmel wrote. "Why were you in Europe? What galleries did you go to in Paris? What was your favourite?"
"I thought I'd share this because the dude is a class act and little moments like this can make such a big difference in people's lives," the TV producer concluded, stating that the actor "could not have been nicer" after the international flight; "We need more Keanus!"
Indeed we do! Read the rest of the tweet thread below.

Kid: Where are you staying in NY?
By this time the kid was running out of questions, so Keanu started grilling him 🤣 Why were you in Europe? What galleries did you go to in Paris? What was your favorite?
Thankfully, we soon might be seeing Reeves on the small screen: earlier this year, he was in talks to star alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in Martin Scorcese's The Devil in the White City.
