Heartwarming story about Keanu Reeves with 80-year-old grandma who had CRUSH on him

Apart from being a Hollywood legend, Keanu Reeves is best known for being an all-around nice guy.

Everyone seems to have a story about meeting the actor and him just being lovely, from giving up his seat on a train to buying an ice cream just to autograph a receipt for a fan.

So here’s another one for you.

A person told Reddit that their uncle once ran into the John Wick star while eating at a restaurant in Los Angeles many years ago.

They explained that his grandmother was a huge fan and that his films provided her with great comfort during some of her most difficult times.

When he heard her story, the star did what he always does.

“My grandmother had a crush on Keanu Reeves because he reminded her of my grandfather when he was young – saw all his stuff, from Bill and Ted to The Matrix,” they wrote.

“She had a stroke in her early 70s and was pretty much housebound for the last 10 years of her life, so watching movies was her main hobby, and became almost like friends to her because she so rarely got to see any of her own.

“Not too long after The Matrix came out my uncle was in LA for business and was eating at a really swanky restaurant when Keanu came in with a woman. When he finished his meal my uncle came up to their table and said, ‘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’.

“He said Keanu asked if he had a cell phone on him and when he confirmed that he did, he 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.”

This comes after the actor was seen having a lengthy conversation with a young fan at an airport, answering a slew of questions, signing autographs, and posing for photos.

TV producer Andrew Kimmel was on the same flight from London to New York City, and once there, he watched in awe as Reeves calmly answered a barrage of questions from the eager fan.
