Keanu Reeves is preserving his prestige as the best-loved actor, this time with another lovely giveback of respect and appreciation.
Reeves was driving to the “Bill and Ted Face the Music” set in Louisiana together with writer Ed Solomon when they encountered a sign that said “You’re breathtaking!” reported People.
Reeves stopped the car to reciprocate the sign’s author’s feelings, knelt on the grass and wrote “Stacey, You’re Breathtaking!” also leaving his signature.
“So yesterday this sign was out on a lawn on the way to set. Keanu jumped out of the car and did this,” Solomon wrote on Twitter, adding some pictures of the sweet moment.

Later, a Twitter user made known that she was the one behind the sign and shared a photo where she and her family can be seen smiling with Reeves.

The sign was alluding to a viral moment from an E3 video conference where Reeves was introducing a video game and a fan shouted at him “You’re breathtaking!” to which Reeves answered back “You’re breathtaking!”

A Charitable and Tragic Past
Reeves has a tragic past that many people don’t know about. He is also known to be a truly good person evinced by selfless acts instead of just intent-filled words.
When Keanu Reeves was only 3 years old, his father left his family. Keanu spent his teenage years at four different high schools while struggling with dyslexia.
He eventually graduated but lost his best friend at the age of 23 to a drug overdose, his first child to a miscarriage, and the love of his life to a car accident. When it seemed like things couldn’t get any worse for Keanu, his sister was also diagnosed with leukemia.

Thankfully, his sister recovered, and Keanu dedicated his life to helping others. The internet is resplendent with stories of his generosity.
One Reddit user, bo2dd2, explained: “Back in the late 90s and fresh out of college I got my first job as an assistant prop designer on the set of Chain Reaction (Keanu was a supporting actor with Morgan Freeman).
“Every day for the last few weeks of filming, Keanu treated the stage hands and ‘grunt workers’ (including myself) by taking us out for free breakfast and lunch. He was genuinely a very nice guy to work with.
“Since then, I’ve worked on about 30 different sets and have never met an actor as generous and friendly as him. Most actors I’ve seen and worked with are total [expletive] who always think they are better than us. Keanu on the other hand, at the very least, was socially approachable and definitely kindhearted.”
