Keanu Reeves has accumulated a cult-like following and is coined as the internet’s boyfriend. The John Wick actor continued to maintain his status as the world’s number one heartthrob while driving to a set in Louisiana with Bill and Ted Face the Music writer Ed Solomon.
According to Solomon’s Twitter post from two days ago, he was driving to the set with the 54-year-old action thriller superstar when they passed a yard with a sign in it that read “You’re breathtaking.”
For those unfamiliar with the reference, the sign was quoting a viral moment of Keanu’s from a month ago when he said “you’re breathtaking” to the crowd of an E3 video game conference after someone from the crowd shouted the same phrase at him.
Solomon’s Twitter post explained that Reeves was so compelled by it that he stopped the vehicle and pulled the sign out of the ground so he could leave his adoring fan a message. Kneeling in the lawn of the fan’s yard, he penned “Stacey, You’re Breathtaking” at the bottom with his signature as well.
Solomon’s Twitter post included a picture of Keanu kneeling down in the yard to leave the message as well as a snap of the yard sign after the actor finished with his handiwork. In just 48 hours, Ed’s post had accumulated over 40,000 likes as just shy of 9,000 people were discussing Reeves’ latest sweet gesture toward his fans.

In less than 12 hours, a woman took to Twitter to reveal that it was her yard and her sign that Reeves had left the sweet message on.
In her own tweet, the woman gushed that “dreams do come true” before explaining why she and her son decided to make the sign. “Oh my heavens!” She swooned at the end of her tweet which included a picture of the sign, a picture of Keanu writing on it, and a picture of the actor standing with his fan and her family.
