Nowadays, Keanu Reeves’ name is associated with a status that very few people in Hollywood can claim.
In other words, he is well-known for being one of the truly nice people in the entertainment business. There seem to be few people who are immune to becoming… well, less than pleasant under the spotlights where outrageous amounts of money and attention can oh-so-easily elevate a person’s sense of self-importance.
Even though Keanu Reeves has been a household name in movies for well over 25 years, it turns out that he is immune.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard all the stories about Reeves and his charitable deeds. For example, he’s allegedly secretly donated large sums of money to children’s hospitals; he arranged transportation for passengers on a plane that had to make an emergency landing; and he gave a dozen stuntmen Harley-Davidson motorcycles as a thank you for their work during the “The Matrix” filming.
To put it simply, Keanu seems to be a man on a mission to improve the world a little bit, and he actively participates in acts of compassion on a regular basis to do his part.
Sandra Bullock, who costarred with Reeves in the popular 1994 movie Speed, recently came out and expressed her opinions about the actor.
As if anyone needed more evidence of what a gentleman Keanu is, Bullock talked to Esquire about an instance when, approximately a year after the release of Speed, she and Reeves had struck up a conversation about champagne and truffles. more precisely, the fact that she had never tried them.
Bullock maintained that she hadn’t given what she’d said any thought up until Keanu showed up on a motorcycle a few days later. in his grasp? Yes, you read correctly: truffles, champagne, and flowers.
Reeves said: “I just thought you might want to try champagne and truffles, to see what it’s like.”
Bullock described how, at the time, she was getting her nails done with a friend. They split the champagne with Reeves, but he had to leave soon after to go on a date.
Bullock said: “When I first met him, I would spend as much time as I could filling a silence, just to feel comfortable.
“And the more I jibber-jabbered on, the quieter he would get. And I thought, ‘I don’t understand what’s happening! He’s looking at me with eyes of confusion. He’s quiet. Did I say something to offend him?’
“And then a day or two later, he would arrive with a note or a little package, saying, ‘I thought about what you said’, and he would have his response.
“How many people do you know like that?”
Moreover, Bullock revealed that she’s glad the two, now both 57, never pursued any kind of romance with one another.
“Keanu’s a guy who, I feel like, is friends with every woman he’s ever dated. I don’t think there’s anyone who has something horrible to say about him,” she said.
“So maybe we could have survived. I don’t know. But we didn’t have to survive anything. We just get to grow up together on parallel roads and tip our hats and meet for a dinner and try to work together.
“And the longer time goes on, the more in awe I am of the human being. Would I have been able to say that if he had dumped me and made me angry? Probably not.”
