In honor of John Wick 3 I have a Keanu Reeves story.
James Dator @James_Dator
Keanu came to the movie theater I worked at in Sydney in 2001. He was working on the Matrix series at the time. It’s a quiet, Wednesday morning — almost nobody is seeing movies.

I’m working the box office, bored as hell and suddenly this dude walks up in jeans, a leather jacket and a horse riding helmet. A full ass, weird equestrian looking helmet. It takes me a solid 30 seconds to ignore the helmet and realize it’s Keanu Reeves
James Dator @James_Dator
He wants to buy a ticket for “From Hell,” the Johnny Depp movie. I’m so fucking star struck I do what any sensible 16-year-old does and tell him I’d like to give him my employee discount. This means he needs to sign my sheet and therefore I have his autograph
James Dator @James_Dator
“I don’t work here,” Keanu says. Seemingly confused by my offer. I’m flustered and just charge him the normal price. Kicking myself after for not getting his autograph
James Dator @James_Dator
2 minutes later there’s a knock on the door behind me that leads into the box office. I assume it’s my manager. It’s Keanu.
James Dator @James_Dator
“I realized you probably wanted my autograph,” he says. “So I signed this.” He hands me a receipt from the concessions stand that he signed on the back. He then casually throws an ice cream cone in the trash can and sees his movie
James Dator @James_Dator
I realize later that he bought an ice cream cone he didn’t want, just to get receipt paper so he could scribble his autograph for a 16-year-old idiot.

@James_Dator GODDAMMIT I LOVE KEANU REEVES AND HIS EQUESTRIAN HELMENT
James Dator @James_Dator
@itsashleyoh To this day I don’t know if he thought it was a disguise, fashion, or if it was a next level rouse to throw people off
Nick Onorato @Nonorato84
@James_Dator The story is incomplete without a picture of the receipt.
James Dator @James_Dator
@Nonorato84 Honestly, it’s either somewhere in the attic of my moms house or lost in the move.

@James_Dator @itsashleyoh You sure it was a horse riding helmet and not a motorcycle half helmet? pic.twitter.com/3LYjeBc4MX

@James_Dator Verified! I was there. We also had George Lucas come in when he was filming the prequels I believe the same year.

@James_Dator I’m just going to go ahead and cry about the sweetness of this
Jeañña @jeannathomas
@James_Dator This story confirms two things: Keanu Reeves sounds like a solid dude, and you are the friend in my life who has the greatest damn stories hahaha
Reapz316 @Reapz316
@Ffordesoon @James_Dator Yeah, really sweet. Didn't try to hide who be was. Made no fuss. Just paid for his ticket and went straight in.
Russell Pearce @Seatownshowdown
@James_Dator That is such a weird solution to needing a scrap of paper.
Ryan Court @2ryan1
@James_Dator I was once a waiter in a fancy hotel when he came in. I asked him if he would like something to drink and he said "No thanks". End of story. Then I told everyone I met Keanu Reeves.
