Just Spreading Joy Everywhere…

Keanu Reeves, 57 spreads joy wherever he goes. The “Point Break” actor recently appeared as a “very special guest” at the reception for James Roadnight and Nikki Roadnight – who tied the knot at Fawsley Hall in Northamptonshire a few days ago. The bride was so smitten, that instead of posting her and her hubby’s picture, she decided to make a profile picture with Keanu Reeves.
So, Keanu did not exactly crash–crash the wedding. The groom actually saw the “Matrix” actor, 57, hanging out in the bar of the Fawsley Hall Hotel & Spa and invited him to the reception. “He was very friendly and said he would [come] later on,” Nikki Roadnight spoke in an interview on Thursday (Aug 25). “We didn’t know if he would or not but it was cool that my husband had spoken to him!,” the bride added.
Well, Keanu did leave the newlyweds star-studded as the suspense was already built by the hotel staff member who told the couple that “a very special guest” was waiting for them. The bride could not hold
As the newlyweds enjoyed the party, a hotel staff member told them that a “very special guest” was waiting for them. The bride stated that it was a very exciting moment. She went to say hi and introduced herself, and offered Keanu a drink. However, he declined and said that “he’d just had a long flight so wouldn’t stay long but he was so kind and friendly and congratulated us on our wedding.”
The magical day for the couple turned out even more fascinating when the bride noted that Reeves not only talked to the attendees but also posed for several pictures with the newlyweds. Not only this, but Keanu also took pictures with Nikki’s parents and extended family members as they all yelled “Speed” whilst posing for the photos. They were awed to see that Reeves is so down-to-earth and friendly.
Keanu Loves His Fans Way Too Much…
If you’re surprised at Keanu’s treatment of a random couple, don’t be surprised. The “John Wick” star is celebrated as the nicest guy in Hollywood for the way he treats everyone in the industry, and yes, always prioritises his fans. In 2019, he made headlines when he wrote down a sweet note on a fan’s yard sign.
If you don’t know this, a Change.org petition was created to crown Keanu Reeves as “Person of the Year”. The petition garnered nearly 200,000 signatures. Not only this, he has secretly donated millions of his earnings to children’s hospitals and other charities. For instance, in response to his sister’s battle with leukemia, he founded a private cancer foundation, which aids children’s hospitals and provides cancer research.
In June 2020, Reeves volunteered for Camp Rainbow Gold, an Idaho children’s cancer charity. The New York Times has named him no. 4 on the list of “25 Greatest Actors of the 21st Century. Isn’t Keanu an amazing human being, what do you think about him?
