What do you think of when you think about Keanu Reeves? The Matrix, for one? Or perhaps John Wick? Maybe you even think of the “Sad Keanu” meme. But this story sounds like it is straight out of cult classic Speed, starring Reeves alongside Sandra Bullock.
Reeves was recently on board a United Airlines flight to Burbank, Los Angeles when disaster struck. When the plane had taken off in San Francisco, all seemed fine, but it was soon forced to make an emergency landing. The reasons for this are unknown, but the plane landed safely and everybody on board was fine. However, everyone on board was also now stranded in the desert. Bakersfield was around 100 miles from their intended destination, and nobody knew what to do.

Keanu Reeves In Action
However, Reeves stepped up to the plate admirably. Firstly, he checked everyone was okay and kindly took pictures with some fans. Besides that, he started to form a plan. He managed to get hold of a minibus (that Hollywood star power hey) and persuaded everyone to get on. Some wanted to wait for their luggage, but he knew that it would arrive safely in LA with or without their help. The airline would have to make sure of it.

In another unexpected turn of events, Reeves got on the minibus with everyone else for an impromptu road trip. People had expected him to get a private car, but that was not the case. Rumour has it that he also pointed out local trivia on the drive, and created a playlist of a specific local brand of country music to soundtrack their drive.

When they arrived in LA, he simply shook hands with his new friends, insisted that “it was a pleasure to meet you,” and wandered into a Carl’s Jr burger joint. Celebrities really are just like us.
