A Twitter user remembers meeting the actor 15 years ago, after The Matrix’s success, as a bartender.

PJ Quint, on the other hand, recalled meeting with Keanu Reeves in New York. “I was a receptionist in an apartment building in New York City, when Keanu walked towards me. I looked at Keanu Reeves and he introduced himself as a person, not waiting for me to recognize and call out his name. smiled and asked me, “Hey, how are you?”. PJ Quint never thought that Keanu would be approachable and proactively greet others like that.

He is very kind to me. “Thank you very much even though I really haven’t done anything for you. You kissed me on the cheek, how can I forget it,” Amanda said.
An Australian writer, Rosie Waterland, recalled when she was a struggling college student. At that time, Rosie worked at a movie theater in Sydney and one day, Keanu appeared. Rosie Waterland has the role of escorting the actor to the stage. In her story, Rosie recounts that Keanu is a sweet, quiet, and caring person.
“I walked beside someone who was at the peak of his art. Keanu turned to me while the whole cinema was full of people cheering him. He wished me good luck and I laughed because I didn’t know how to respond. I should have been the one who told you that. I cannot forget the moment you winked at me,” wrote Rosie.
“Super polite”, “super sweet”, “super cute” are the words web users comment on the stories told in Stories about Keanu Reeves. In particular, the story of Keanu’s smile and warm eyes is constantly being mentioned.
Naomi Fry, the author of the article, tells about two brief but sweet memories with Keanu. “Once in 2006, during a performance of dancer Pina Bausch, at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, I saw Keanu sitting a few rows away from me on a cheap chair. His long legs were crammed into a small space in front of me. Three years later, at a Film Forum, I saw him appear with a big box of popcorn for everyone. These moments were fleeting, but I “kept” them with me, cherishing them sometimes, the way you hold a crystal or a talisman,” she wrote.
