Young fans thrilled after meeting Keanu Reeves
Caleb told KHOU 11, “He [Reeves] like came out, and I didn’t expect his hair to be like a little white. I knew his hair was long but I didn’t expect it to be white.”
Elijah then continued, “And when I got his signature and my brother got his signature, I asked him if he could play catch with me.”
“I asked him the first time and he kind of mumbled something. But I didn’t hear him so I asked him again and he said 'Yeah come on let's go,’” he shared.
About the experience, the young boy said, “I was really nervous because I was playing catch with a famous superstar.”
Elijah, however, mentioned, “I was surprised he did it, and then he said, 'Hey, he’s got a great spiral.' I'm like thanks. I said, 'That’s a day he’s always going to remember.”
“This is the football I threw with him. I’m keeping it forever and ever," the child added.

And when a hater tried to troll Reeves, a fan of him added, “He’s beloved, and the total opposite of unlikable. You’ll see this man riding the subway in downtown NYC, friendly as you can imagine with ZERO ego."
“He never was a mess, or let the industry change him. He’s authentic, and after a career that spans almost 40 years - he’s just now reached his peak with the John Wick series, and I predict an Oscar-winning role to emerge into his repertoire next,” the fan continued.
“What a strange comment - he’s one of those celebrities/people that you simply can't say something bad about,” they added.
Definitely just you. He’s beloved, and the total opposite of unlikable. You’ll see this man riding the subway in downtown NYC, friendly as you can imagine with ZERO ego. He never was a mess, or let the industry change him. He’s authentic, and after a career that spans almost 40…— empress sindel (@glorioushurt) October 9, 2023
