The actor has proven yet again why people deem him as the "nicest guy in Hollywood."
There's no denying it: Keanu Reeves is one of the most beloved actors in Hollywood. Over the years, many people who have met the actor have only the nicest stories to share about him. From secretly donating huge sums of money to children's hospitals to just being friendly and courteous with fans, the 57-year-old actor is adored by all. The latest to be included is his four-man John Wick stunt crew who received personalized Rolex watches from the star.
Reeves gifted each member of the crew with personalized Rolex Submariner watches at a movie wrap dinner in Paris over the weekend. The gift was such a thoughtful gesture with the inside of each watch engraved with personal messages to each person from the actor. Bruce Concepcion, Jeremy Marinas, Dave Camarillo and Li Qiang shared a look at their wrist ware on social media, and the images and thank-yous went viral. Marinas called his gift the "best wrap gift ever" and revealed that his watch read, "The John Wick Five" along with the message, "Jeremy Thank you Keanu JW4 2021. Concepcion also shared a picture of his Rolex on his Instagram Stories, writing, "Got that new new thank you bro KR," reports PEOPLE.
According to HuffPost, this is just one of the many kind gestures from the “Keanussance.” While filming Bill and Ted Face the Music in 2019, Reeves spotted a sign on the front lawn of someone's home in Louisiana that read, “You’re breathtaking” ― a reference to the actor calling a gaming convention audience “breathtaking.” So Reeves ended up going to the house and posed photos with owner Stacey Hunt and her sons, and added to to the sign: “Stacey, you’re breathtaking,” along with his signature. A Twitter user revealed that she was the woman behind the sign, and she even shared a photo with Reeves to prove it."Wow! Yesterday was a dream come true! We knew Keanu Reeves was filming up the street so my son said we need to make a sign that says 'you're breathtaking' so we did! A few cars stopped but then a car stopped and there he was!! He actually stopped! Oh my heavens!" she wrote. that very same year, his flight from San Francisco to Los Angeles ended up making an emergency landing in Bakersfield so he decided to keep his fellow passengers entertained with fun facts about Bakersfield and even played “Bakersfield Sound” music for everyone in a van.

Another "sweet" fan encounter was when Twitter user James Dator recalled meeting the Canadian actor when the former was just 16 years old and working at a movie theater. Dator tweeted about the time the actor bought an ice cream cone just so he could sign the receipt for the 16-year-old fan and the story went viral. Many fans added their encounters with the actor and all of them were incredibly sweet as well. Despite the adoration online, Reeves revealed that he never knew about it, telling PEOPLE in 2019 he was surprised the internet was so obsessed with him. "That's, uh, that's wacky," he said at the Toy Story 4 premiere. "Well, the positivity's great."
I realize later that he bought an ice cream cone he didn’t want, just to get receipt paper so he could scribble his autograph for a 16-year-old idiot.— James Dator (@James_Dator) May 17, 2019
