Keanu Reeves could be the nicest — and most patient — man in Hollywood.
The actor is being described as a “class act” for his response to a young fan’s intense questioning following a world flight from London to Recent York on July 4.
The exchange was captured by TV producer Andrew Kimmel who tweeted the exchange, which has been re-shared over 21,000 times.
Kimmel said the 57-year-old “happily” responded the the “rapid-fire questions” the young boy was asking.
“The person couldn’t have been nicer, especially after a world flight,” Kimmel wrote.
In response to Kimmel, “The Matrix” star said he was in London filming a documentary and went to the Grand Prix, and although he doesn’t drive Formula 1 cars himself, he does ride a motorbike.

He also said he could be catching a Broadway show in Recent York (“American Buffalo! Mamet!”) and staying in Midtown.
Keanu Reeves was on my flight from London to NYC today. A young boy asked for an autograph at baggage & then began to fireplace off a series of rapid-fire questions. Keanu happily responded to each one… pic.twitter.com/T7m7PciL5C

“By this time the child was running out of questions, so Keanu began grilling him,” Kimmel recalled. “Why were you in Europe? What galleries did you go to in Paris? What was your favorite?”
Reeves has gone viral in past years for being a “gentleman,” amid a surge in popularity some called a “Keanussance.”
“I assumed I’d share this since the dude is a category act and little moments like this may make such an enormous difference in people’s lives,” Kimmel shared. “We want more Keanus!”
