Wholesome celebrities exist in the form of Keanu Reeves, one of the most grounded men the world has ever seen. The Matrix star is unlike any other Hollywood celebrity, that’s for sure. He is known for his heart of gold and all those charity projects he funds. Where there is need of help, there is Keanu. This man is so humble that he opts for a simple life, like that of the ordinary people.
It’s not a secret that he shared millions of dollars with the set and the special effects crew who worked along with him on the Matrix movies.
His generosity can’t be compared to any other, especially because he does more of his kindness secretly, without the need to be praised for it.
One of his kind deeds that we recently heard of made us love him even more, if that’s even possible. Namely, he learned of an 80 year old fan who has seen each and every movie he has ever starred in, so Keanu being Keanu, he decided to give her a call and make her day.
The heartwarming gesture was shared online by the fan’s granddaughter who thanked the actor for his heart of gold.
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. 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 swanky restaurant when Keanu Reeves 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 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.”
Keanu Reeves makes this world a much more beautiful place.
