I saw him once in east London around the northeast corner of London City...he was just walking alone on the street like anyone else ... I just looked at him once and recognized him, I didn't even think about talking to him, asking for autograph or photos, that was the most awesome and fucked up thing that could possibly happen: your favorite movie actor just walks in the street where you are. I was on a bike doing the job, visiting dozens of places, going throught hundreds of streets and seeing thousands of faces a day, but recognizing one which I've seen so many times it got imprinted in my mind, was mindblowing.
The most awesome how the the actor who played the most inspirational movie characters is just walking on the street like everybody else does.
After a passed him by bike, I stopped to look back like holy shit, that is Keanu Reeves walking there :O
This happened around this time of the year, 2 years ago
I just barely believed I've seen him, I froze .And he was just walking on the street like anybody else, that's why I didn't really approached him, he's gotta be some lones type like me, I wouldn't really like if some stranger would come to me . And I was in a rush riding as a courier and afraid as well of this situation:"Hey Mr.Reeves, can you ... ""no kid, no ..."
Always open with a joke (cliche, but true). For example, "You look like that brilliant actor who turned down the movie Speed 2." Then he'd laugh and not worry that you were gonna rape him or whatever, heh. I know it wouldn't be funny, but it would be a little funny if you talked to him and then he tried to rob you. The police would be like, "So, what did the guy look like who took your wallet?" and you'd be like, "Keanu Reeves did it!"
