Keanu Reeves, the Matrix trilogy star has been on quite a trip recently. The Canadian actor has also become known for the ‘Sad Keanu’ meme more than his screen presence, after one photo of him sitting alone on a public bench went viral.
Sad Keanu has received multiple twitter accounts and websites, while the real Keanu even spoke about the strange viral fame in a televised interview. “Do I wish I hadn’t got my picture taken while I was eating a sandwich on the streets of New York?” the actor said. “Yeah.”
A lot has changed since the bench picture, Reeves’ John Wick series has built a huge fanbase, and he’s made it very clear he’s doing extremely well and giving back to others too.
Taking a United Airlines flight from San Francisco to Burbank, LA over the weekend, the actor ran into a bit of difficulty. Unfortunately, the plane had to make an emergency landing in Bakersfield, around 100 miles away from their destination.
Keanu, decided instead of using his fame and fortune to get out of the situation as stress free and quickly as possible, he in fact joined in with the regular people and tried to find a working solution for them all.
Of course, Keanu was the centre of attention on this occasion and found a solution.

The group eventually headed out in a minibus, with Keanu asking them all to “hit the road” with him rather than wait hours for the baggage claim staff to arrive.
To everyones excitement, Keanu entertained them all on the drive by giving them trivia on the area they were passing through, and finding the specific local brand of country music from around there to listen to on their journey.
At the end of the trip, Keanu shakes hands with one of the departing passengers, insisting “it was a pleasure to meet you”.
