There are so many stories out there about how Keanu Reeves is one of the nicest guys in Hollywood, and they just keep coming. The "John Wick" star continues to live up to his unofficial title as the real people's champion. One such instance of Reeves being an absolute gentleman was recently witnessed by a Twitter user named Andrew Kimmel, who, according to his bio, is a TV producer, when he observed a sweet interaction between the "Matrix Resurrections" actor and a young fan.



 


In a series of tweets shared online Monday night, Kimmel revealed how Reeves had just deboarded a flight from London to New York when he was approached in the baggage area by an excited fan. "Keanu Reeves was on my flight from London to NYC today," Kimmel wrote in a now-viral tweet. "A young boy asked for an autograph at baggage [and] then began to fire off a series of rapid-fire questions. Keanu happily responded to every single one..." He also posted a photo of Reeves standing with a luggage cart beside the young boy before going on to share some of the conversations he overheard.



 


The boy's interrogation included such queries as "Why was he in London?" ("Filming a documentary," said Reeves) and whether the star had attended the British Grand Prix over the weekend? "Yes, the Grand Prix. F1! Race cars," said Reeves, according to Kimmel. When asked if he drove himself, the actor reportedly replied: "Not F1, but I like riding motorcycles." According to Kimmel, the boy then asked the 57-year-old if he lived in New York and when Reeves replied that his home is in Los Angeles, he pushed to find out why the star had just touched down in the Big Apple.



 


"How long are you gonna be in New York?" the boy asked, to which Reeves is said to have replied: "Four days! No... five. Five days!" The actor then added that he was "gonna see a broadway show," which he later revealed was David Mamet's "American Buffalo." "By this time the kid was running out of questions, so Keanu started grilling him," Kimmel tweeted. "Why were you in Europe? What galleries did you go to in Paris? What was your favorite? The man could not have been nicer, especially after an international flight. 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. We need more Keanus!"



 


Unsurprisingly, the adorable encounter left fans gushing over the "Constantine" star yet again and some even shared their personal stories of meeting Reeves out in the world. "I met Keanu when he was filming 'Matrix 4,' super chill and no arrogance at all. He's humble and also an amazing person and actor," tweeted @kiGZterSHMK. "I hate stardom culture but if I had to choose one man that deserves to be worshiped it would be him. They literally make rap songs about him and he's still more humble than me. The guy is such a gem," wrote @Baccali2. We agree. Reeves is an absolute gem of a person.
