Examples of his kindness and generosity are always circulating online. One example of the gesture he made to an 80-year-old super fan that recently resurfaced was so sweet that it left many fans in tears.

In the story - which was reshared in a Reddit post - a user explained how their 80-year-old grandma had developed a crush on the Matrix star because he reminded her of her late husband.

"She had a stroke in her early 70s and was pretty much housebound for the last 10 years of her life, so watching movies was her main hobby, and became almost like friends to her because she so rarely got to see any of her own," they explained.

The user went on to say how around the same time that one of Reeves' most famous movies (The Matrix) came out, their uncle bumped into the actor in an LA restaurant.

"When he finished his meal my uncle came up to their table and said 'I don’t usually do this, but I just wanted you to know that my 80-year-old mother loves you and has seen all of your movies. You remind her of my dad,'" the user recalled.

Rather than brushing him off as many celebs might, Reeves asked the uncle if he had a phone. When he confirmed that he did, the John Wick star reportedly said: "Give her a call, I want to talk to her."

"He spoke with my grandmother for several minutes and it absolutely made her year. She was so isolated and his genuine kindness to her and interest in her showed what a truly amazing man he is," the Redditor concluded.

Unsurprisingly, fans were overwhelmed by the sweet story, with many even claiming that it moved them to tears.

"Just when you think we've reached peak Keanu, he ascends even higher," added a third.
