Keanu Reeves is proving again to be an incredibly generous and down to earth celebrity.  

On Saturday, Keanu Reeves was on a commercial flight from San Francisco to L.A., when it was diverted due to a, quote, “mechanical indication.”

Fortunately, the plane landed safely at a remote airport in Bakersfield, California . . . but unfortunately, the passengers were still more than 100 miles away from their destination.

Reeves went to work.  He organized a van ride for anyone who was interested.  ROAD TRIP! Reeves entertained passengers along the way using his phone to read facts about Bakersfield and playing country music. 

This isn’t the first time Keanu has been caught being so cool. 

Here are three more reasons why Keanu Reeves is so cool thanks to Wikipedia. 

  1. Reeves 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.[70]
  2. 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.”[71] 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.[72]
  3.  It’s reported that Reeves made a deal 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.[73]

Of course there is video!  Check out what some of Keanu Reeves fellow passengers captured on video.
