Is Keanu Reeves on social media

Keanu Reeves: Why the Internet Loves the Movie Star So Much

He takes the subway to work. He's not active on social media. And no matter how deep the gossip press digs into his life: There are no scandals, no escapades, no rumors. Hollywood actor Keanu Reeves is not only world famous for his action films, but has also become a viral hit on the internet. The simple reason: his down-to-earth attitude and decency.

The 54-year-old is currently making headlines because it has been announced that he will not touch women who ask him for a photo together. The photos show him just holding his hand behind her back. A tweet with pictures that drew attention to Reeves' behavior has already generated more than 400,000 "likes".

"Keanu Reeves is too good for this world," was the title of an article in New Yorker magazine by journalist Naomi Fry. In it, she draws attention to the “Keanu Stories” - stories from people who associate experiences from “real life” with the actor. There is, for example, the story of the emergency landing of an airplane in Bakersfield, California. Reeves was among the passengers and quickly organized a van for the onward journey to Los Angeles. On the drive, he played country songs on his cell phone. A video from 2011 shows the actor in the New York subway immediately offering his seat to a woman getting on board.
