Everybody loves Keanu Reeves. Whether you’re a fan of his acting, handsome looks, or his absolutely lovable roles… who isn’t a fan of the man who brought to life Theodore “Ted” Logan, John Wick, Neo, and of course Johnny Utah?! And he’s a quality human. Reeves recently traveled on a flight that got diverted from Los Angeles’ airport LAX to Bakersfield, and he became a hero of the people.

The flight from San Francisco to Los Angeles got waylaid to the small Southern Californian city of Bakersfield, about a two hour drive from LA. It was faster to drive than wait around the Bakersfield airport, so Reeves decided to take charge of the situation and sort road transportation. Luckily for us some of his fellow passengers documented the experience.

Hey everyone- There’s been a lot of attention about a recent story I posted about an “adventure“ on a minibus with one of the great humanitarians (and fav actors) of our time. I don’t have anything to add other than that all the passengers were incredibly kind and lovely people, including the folks who took care of us in Bakersfield, CA. Perhaps though, with all this attention we can do some good. In the spirit of what a generous person Mr. Reeves is here are a few charities that you might consider donating to. If you do have copies of the video (news outlets:), please attach links to these charities alongside them. Maybe we do a little good. 🙏 I will also post direct links in my stories so you can easily click to each of these. 🚐🌴🦄💛 Song: It’s Such a Pretty World Today / Wynn Stewart #itssuchaprettyworldtoday www.sickkidsfoundation.com www.standuptocancer.org www.scorefund.org www.wildlifewaystation.org www.coachart.org/get-involved www.coachart.org www.stjude.org www.cityofhope.org/giving

During the ride, Reeves read fun facts about Bakersfield from his phone to the group and even pulled some music to play for the group as they traveled in a small minibus.

Please note the totally dad-worthy handclap when he says, “Hit the road.” It’s just wonderful.

The loveliest actor in Hollywood also took his time to take pics with his adoring fans.

It clearly made the never fun situation of being on a flight diverted to another city a much better experience.

If you’re wishing you were on that plane (who isn’t?), don’t worry. It’s only a few weeks until you can enjoy Keanu and a whole bunch of good dogs in John Wick: Chapter 3.
