Reeves leaped out of the car, grabbed the sign, which read “You’re Breathtaking,” and proceeded to sign it. The touching moment was all documented by the highly anticipated sequel’s writer Ed Solomon.
So yesterday this sign was out on a lawn on the way to set. Keanu jumped out of the car and did this. pic.twitter.com/OI1bQJ1nfy— Ed Solomon (@ed_solomon) July 18, 2019
“So yesterday this sign was out on a lawn on the way to set. Keanu jumped out of the car and did this,” Solomon posted to Twitter.
Reeves then spent some time chatting with the family. Stacey Hunt couldn’t be happier about the exchange, telling CNN, “What you read about him being such a great person with a great heart is true. At least that’s what I think from my few minutes with him.”
For the record, her 16-year-old son Ethan claims responsibility for having the bright idea to post the note that eventually caught the actor’s attention.
The “You’re Breathtaking” phrase was born from Reeves’ recent appearance at the E3 expo where he surprised fans to announce his participation in the new video game “Cyberpunk 2077.” While on stage, he described the experience as “breathtaking.” In response, a fan yelled back “You’re Breathtaking,” and now it’s become his “thing.”
Residents of New Orleans should remain vigilant, as you never know where Keanu will pop-up next.
The follow up to 1989’s Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure is set to hit theaters on August 21, 2020.
