Keanu Reeves delighting superfan, 9, at comic book signing is so pure

Keanu Reeves isn’t about to give up his seat as the nicest man in Hollywood just yet, as he made a superfan’s day at a comic book shop.

The John Wick icon, 58, was signing copies of his BRZRKR comic book in LA earlier this week when he came face-to-face with nine-year-old Noah.

Clearly thrilled to be in front of his idol, the youngster simply told the Hollywood actor: ‘I’m such a big fan.’

Without skipping a beat, Keanu smiled and introduced himself, before Noah enthused: ‘You’re probably my favorite actor in the whole world, you’re the best!’

‘Oh my gosh, Noah, thank you,’ he replied, asking: ‘Did you see Duke Caboom in Toy Story 4?’

Recreating an impression of the character, who appeared in the 2019 animation, he added: ‘Canada’s greatest stuntman! Well, I’m glad you liked it. I really liked playing Duke Caboom.’

The footage, shared by IGN on Twitter, unsurprisingly went viral, with many commending the Matrix star for being so sweet.

An impressed fan penned: ‘Keanu you don´t need to convince me to love you more.’

‘He’s just amazing and precious,’ a Twitter user agreed.

‘He is such a nice and down to earth guy..,’ one praised. Always so friendly and so polite.. A wonderful happy day for this little fan!’

‘Please protect Keanu at all costs, we need him forever,’ another said.

As a follower added: ‘In a world of not always nice people, be a Keanu Reeves. The man just seems to be a genuinely good and kind person.’

Keanu’s appearance comes as it was revealed that Matthew Perry would be removing the controversial remarks he made about his fellow actor from his highly-publicized memoir.

The Friends legend released his book, Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing, last year, detailing his incredible rise to fame on the sitcom as well as his battle with addiction.

However, there were some bizarre jabs directed towards Keanu within the pages, with one extract questioning why he ‘still walks among us’ when others have died.

The comments were met with a wave of fury, leading Matthew to apologize – and he has now confirmed that the mentions will not be in any future copies.

‘I said a stupid thing. It was a mean thing to do,’ he told the Los Angeles Times at its Festival of Books.

‘I pulled his name because I live on the same street. I’ve apologized publicly to him.

‘Any future versions of the book will not have his name in it.’

Matthew explained that he hadn’t apologized in person just yet, but plans to if they ‘run into’ each other.
