Keanu Reeves is back and ready to make you like him even more! Keanu has cemented himself as a beloved figure on the internet thanks to the Sad Keanu meme (or Hungry Keanu according to him) and for just being a cool guy. For a person who’s been in Hollywood as long as he has, I think people always find it shocking yet refreshing that Keanu seems like a normal nice dude. Case in point: after being invited to a stranger’s wedding reception, the Matrix actor actually showed up. Keanu is better at RSVPing to wedding invitations than some family members!
Keanu was in England filming a Formula One docuseries for Disney+ and while he was on break, a couple spotted him and thought maybe they could hold a seat for him at the reception. via UPROXX:
“My husband saw him in the bar area and told him he’d just got married and invited Keanu to come over to say hello and have a drink with us if he wanted to,” Nikki Roadnight told Newsweek. “He was very friendly and said he would later on. We didn’t know if he would or not, but it was cool that my husband had spoken to him!”
It’s the first time “we saw you from across the bar…” actually worked, because an hour later, an employee at the wedding venue approached Nikki and told her that a “very special guest” was waiting for her outside. It was Keanu, being his kind, awesome self.
“It was all very exciting and I went to say hi and introduce myself, and I offered him a drink but he declined that and said 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,” she said. “He was kind enough to do some pictures and our wedding photographer was able to capture some too! Then he took the time to speak to some of our guests and have more photos done!”
Here’s Keanu in his most casual wedding wear:

This is not the first time Keanu has been in random people’s wedding photos. In 2018, he photobombed a couple in New York and surprised another in Santa Cruz. Either this is a side gig, or he just really likes seeing people declare their love for one another. So for those of you who are planning your I do’s, try to organize it around Keanu’s shooting schedule. Your wedding scrapbook could feature Neo!
