He really is a gentleman. I have a friend that was deployed to Iraq at the beginning of the war. He was returning home and came through LAX. He was standing outside waiting for his ride and met Mr. Reeves. Keanu made polite conversati­on and asked him about his time in Iraq. Thanked him for his service and even asked if had a ride home. He said he was very nice, polite, and somewhat shy. My friend is a Marine to the extreme and after meeting Keanu has complete respect for him.

Throwing in a few more snippets from around the web:

He is a class act. I saw him in the train station in the city and he was helping some family out with directions­. The family didn’t know he was famous and the family barely spoke English yet he was there trying to help them out. He seems like a geniunely cool guy and yes i wanted to go over to him so bad but chickened out.

The guy is a STAR. Few years ago he was in Brown's in London and he chatted with my friend who works there. He still talks about how down to earth and genuine he is. Holliwood stars should learn a thing or two from this humble gentleman.

I once saw him at Heathrow and he was nice enough to smile and acknowledge my very rare, gormless, star struck beam. He was really sweet and unassuming, thanked the airline staff when disembarking, he even struggled getting his own (very heavy baggage) of the carousel smiling and blushing at the attention from other passengers. What a sweetie, it's a shame that more of the Hollywood glitterati weren't more like him.

From what I have learned of Keanu, I don't think he ever wanted to be a celebrity. He just wanted to be an actor and make films that mean something to him and that entertain people. He's accomplishing his goals in life, which is very admirable. To do that and remain a decent person who doesn't stomp on everyone around him, is even more admirable.

He's tops in my book!

I love every single story of him meeting people/fans. No one has ever said anything negative about him as a person or spoke poorly of an encounter.

If I had the opportunity to meet him in public, I don't know if I would say anything or not - just leer from a distance. I wouldn't want to be intrusive but honestly... how can you not say something? Such a choice.

eh, there were a few rather negative stories around...
one is here:
http://randomactsofdebbie.blogspot.com/2010/03/you-suck-girl.html

then there's another blog post of an ex-hostess at some LA restaurant... don't have the link but Ani might find it.

But it's ok. It shows he's human and perceived as such. We all have bad days.
If all reports were positive, then I'd start being worried ;)

Apart from LucaM's link, I actually heard one personally while on a tour of Paramount Studios in LA - our tour guide was dishing out rumours about celebrities he had met and giving his opinions of them. My mother asked about Keanu; he said he'd never met him but had heard "bad things about him". I was :/ and asked for details, and he said that Keanu was allegedly very aloof and unfriendly.
Which actually tallies with what other people have said - that Keanu is often shy and keeps to himself. So I mentioned that and said that many other people had nothing but good things to say about him, and the tour guide agreed that yeah, that could be the case with Keanu; because he also knew some people who seemed aloof, but once you got them to open up they could be really nice.

I vaguely remember that ex-hostess story, LucaM. Apparently, Keanu and his date complained about having to wait for their menus while the waitress served another customer. When at last she got to them and handed them their menus, they threw them back at her and left.

Or something such.

I find the story hard to believe unless this happened aeons ago, when he was young, restless and using various illegal substances. :-/

eh, or they could have just been having a bad day. I've done unreasonable things on bad days, too.

That story about the 'you suck' girl I don't think is negative. I think I would have had a similar reaction, I don't blame him. I would imagine that he's in the mood to meet people somtimes and not in the mood others. I am sure that he's as nice as he possibly can be, but not being able to go out without having cameras in your face all the time would wear on me too. That is why I have NO CLUE how I would react if I saw him. I'd feel bad for invading his space and privacy but how could I not tell him I appreciate his work? I'm sure some of those negative stories about him are due to bad days and stuff like that.

I think it's all part of a strategic plan to get us to think he's actually human and not a perfect immortal being.

Nice try, Keanu. We're not fooled. :|

I loved that bio, iamjacksrum! Never seen it before, and there were lots of pics that were new to me. Nice to see Alex Winter, too.

Nice find, iamjacksrum! Thanks for posting that link. I haven't even seen all of Keanu's films yet (bloody Netflix, my Chain Reaction Blu-ray disk arrived cracked, and am still waiting for a replacement...), much less stuff like this. Thanks for sharing. And now we know that Alex Winter is also immortal. He hardly looks a day older than when he played Bill!
