Keanu Reeves Once Bought An Ice Cream Cone, Just So He Could Sign an Autograph

May 23, 2019, 1:16 PM


A writer named James Datorshared a very cool story about Keanu Reeves, who he met when he was 16 and working at a movie theater.

James says he was shocked to see Keanu walk up, and ask for a ticket to see “From Hell”, starring Johnny Depp.  He says he tried to SECRETLY get his autograph by offering Keanu his employee discount, if he’d sign some form for it.

Keanu rejected the offer.  He bought his ticket at full price and left, but a few minutes later, James heard a knock at the box office door.   He thought it was his manager . . . but it was Keanu, holding an ice cream cone.

He said, “I realized you probably wanted my autograph . . . so I signed this.”  He handed James a receipt from the concessions stand that had his signature on the back.  He then casually threw the ice cream cone in the trash.

James says, quote, “I realized later that Keanu 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.”
