Keanu Reeves is quickly transitioning from most excellent dude to damn-near-saint.
Reeves, dubbed “the internet’s boyfriend” by some, won over a fan with an act of kindness while filming “Bill & Ted Face the Music” in Slidell, Louisiana, recently.
Stacey Hunt and her sons left a note on their front lawn near the set that read “You’re breathtaking.” It was a reference to “The Matrix” star’s declaration at a recent gaming convention that the entire audience was “breathtaking.”
The 54-year-old actor appeared to take her breath away with the gesture. “Oh my heavens!” Hunt wrote on a Twitter pictorial of the Keanu moment that she posted Thursday.
Wow! Yesterday was a dream come true! We knew @KeanuReevess_ 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! @ed_solomon pic.twitter.com/TBGvAC8kEO

Reeves posed for a photo with Hunt and her sons Ethan and Noah, and chatted a bit about his new film and “The Matrix” movies. He encouraged Hunt to introduce the original “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure” to her sons, NOLA.com noted.
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
