Anyone would think we were back in the 1990s, what with all this Keanu Reeves love going on right now. What is it about this guy that keeps people coming back for more? Why is Keanu the coolest guy on the internet in 2019 and not, let's say, Brendan Fraser for example? So many stars have burned brightly and quietly flickered out, and yet Keanu just seems to go from strength to strength.

Sure, he's a great actor who continues to be one of the best in the business, but he has starred in enough turkeys to have killed a lesser man's career. He challenges his skills on stage at the theatre and also plays guitar for various bands, but so does Russell Crowe? So that's not it.

No, Keanu's appeal lies in his chill, humble personality, and the kindness and openness he shows toward his fans. Need some more examples? We here at Bored Panda have collected a list of our favorite Keanu moments for you to enjoy, but be warned, they might make you admire the man even more!

The Canadian-American actor and musician gained fame for his starring role performances in several blockbuster films, including comedies from the Bill and Ted franchise (1989–1991); action thrillers Point Break (1991), Speed (1994), and the John Wick franchise (2014–2019); psychological thriller The Devil's Advocate (1997); supernatural thriller Constantine (2005); and science fiction/action series The Matrix (1999–2003). He has also appeared in dramatic films, such as Dangerous Liaisons (1988), My Own Private Idaho (1991), and Little Buddha (1993), as well as the romantic horror Bram Stoker's Dracula (1992).

Keanu has earned critical acclaim for his acting. One New York Times critic praised Reeves' versatility, saying that he "displays considerable discipline and range... he moves easily between the buttoned-down demeanor that suits a police procedural story and the loose-jointed manner of his comic roles". However, Reeves has spent much of his later career being typecast. A recurring character arc in many roles he has portrayed is one of saving the world, as can be seen in the characters of Ted Logan, Siddhartha Buddha, Neo, Johnny Mnemonic, John Constantine, and Klaatu. The John Wick franchise represented a return to critical praise and commercial success for Reeves. His acting has garnered several awards, and he has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Reeves has set up a cancer charity, choosing not to attach his name to the organization; he has also supported PETA, the SickKids Foundation and Stand Up to Cancer. In 2014, he said in an interview that his sister Kim had battled leukemia for more than a decade.

Reeves is quoted as saying, "Money is the last thing I think about. I could live on what I have already made for the next few centuries." It has been reported that Reeves gave approximately $80 million of his $114 million earnings from The Matrix sequels, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, to the special effects and makeup staff. The story has been denied by special effects staff themselves as an urban legend.The story likely had its roots in a back-end deal Reeves made with the producers of The Matrix Reloaded, relinquishing his contractual right to a percentage of the earnings from the ticket sales. Reeves reportedly did so to allow producers the flexibility for an extensive special effects budget. The value of Reeves' forgone share of the ticket profits has been estimated at $38 million, which was added to the overall movie budget, rather than going directly to special effects.

Reeves co-founded a production company, Company Films. The company helped produce Henry's Crime, a film in which Reeves stars.

An avid motorcyclist, Reeves co-founded Arch Motorcycle Company, which builds and sells custom motorcycles. The man has done it all!

"I don't like to attach my name to it, I just let the foundation do what it does."

The 54-year-old actor was on a flight from San Francisco to Los Angeles when the plane made an emergency landing in Bakersfield, California.

That’s a nearly two-hour drive from the Burbank Airport. And, according to eyewitnesses and online footage, Mr Reeves not only organized everyone into a group, he joined them on the bus ride to their destination and made the most out of it.

The actor kept the group entertained by reading out facts about Bakersfield and playing music native to the area.

“Its population is about 380,000, making it the 9th most popular city in California, and the 52nd most popular city in the nation,” Reeves was seen reading from his phone on a fellow passenger’s Instagram story.

You’re walking in the woods completely alone with nature. Out of the corner of your eye you see movement and spin faster than you thought your body could move. But it was all in vain as you see a man like creature with long hair in an all black suit sprint off through the trees.
