Keanu Reeves paid a surprise visit to some fans who left a "You're Breathtaking" sign a few blocks away from the set of Bill & Ted Face the Music. The sign's message is based on comments made by Reeves that turned into a viral meme after Microsoft's 2019 E3 press conference. In a new trailer for Cyberpunk 2077 that played during the conference, Reeve's was revealed to be one of the main characters in CD Projekt Red's open-world sci-fi RPG.
Fans went wild over the reveal, and even more so when Reeve's appeared on stage just moments after the trailer showed his character. After he said the open-world in Cyberpunk 2077 would be "breathtaking," a fan in the crowd shouted, "You're breathtaking!" Reeves then laughed and called the entire crowd breathtaking. Even though E3 is focused almost primarily on gaming news, the interaction became one of the most talked-about moments from the entire show.
A Twitter user who goes by sjhunt305 said that her family knew Reeves was filming a movie close by, so her son said that they needed to make a "You're Breathtaking" sign for the actor. After a few cars had come and gone, to their surprise, Reeves eventually appeared, taking a picture with the family and leaving them a nice note on the sign they had left out for him. One of the co-writers behind the third Bill & Ted film, Ed Solomon, also went ahead and posted about the interaction on his personal Twitter account.
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— Sjhunt305@gmail.com (@sjhunt305) July 18, 2019
In the photos, Reeves is cleanly shaved for his role as Ted in Bill & Ted Face the Music, which began filming just a few weeks ago. It's certainly a big change from the character he's portraying in Cyberpunk 2077, Johnny Silverhand, as well as his grittier role in the John Wick films. Reeves has always had an amazing relationship with is fans, and they've even gone as far as petitioning for him to be nominated as Time's Person of the Year.
If fans thought they couldn't love Keanu Reeves any more than they already do, the man always manages to prove them wrong with his senseless acts of kindness towards people. Reeve's kindness seems to be paying off for him as well, since Marvel is reportedly looking into him for a potential role in the MCU. While we all might not get the chance to meet the legend that is Keanu Reeves in our lifetime, at least we'll have the opportunity to adventure alongside him in Cyberpunk 2077.
