Keanu Reeves has delivered a fan the day of her life. The actor was working in Louisiana when he saw a sign in a garden with the text: You are breathtaking.
“Wow, a dream comes true!”
It was a reference to a fan who had called words to Reeves at a gaming convention in June, to which the actor replied: “You are breathtaking, you are all breathtaking.” The moment became a hit on the internet, Entertainment Tonight writes.
When the son of Stacey Hunt found out that Reeves was recording a movie at the end of his street, he set down the sign hoping to attract the attention of the 54-year-old actor. And it worked.
Reeves drove by, saw the sign, jumped out of the car and wrote on the sign: “Stacey, you’re breath-taking!” and he put his signature under it. The film star then also took the time for a selfie with Hunt and her two sons.
Stacey posted the photo on Twitter and wrote: “Wow, a dream has come true! … A car stopped and there he was! He really stopped! Oh my goodness!”
After the adventure, the Hunt family placed a new plate in the garden with two red hearts and the words “Thank you Keanu”.
The popular actor is currently in the spotlight. A petition started by a fan to make him this year Person of the Year from Time magazine was signed by 70,000 people last month. Reeves is said to have donated millions to children’s hospitals and other charities without calling attention to them.
