Keanu Reeves shows sweet disposition in story involving ice cream

Which leading man would you most like to have a beer with?
Actually, forget the beer. Let’s go with ice cream instead.
Our choice of escort to Baskin Robbins would be Keanu Reeves. Just don’t expect the “John Wick” star to actually eat the treat.
A new story about Reeves has gone viral, and has given further proof that he is not your typical Hollywood star.
SB Nation writer James Dator commemorated last week’s release of “John
Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum” by sharing on Twitter his story about Reeves and ice cream.
It was 2001, and a 16-year-old Dator was working the box office of a movie theater in Sydney when Reeves dropped in during a break from filming the sequels to his 1999 blockbuster “The Matrix.”
Dator provided plenty of detail about their brief encounter. It was a slow Wednesday morning. Reeves was not easily recognizable in his leather jacket, jeans and an “equestrian looking helmet.” He bought a ticket to Johnny Depp’s “From Hell.”
Once he figured out it was Reeves, Dator said he became star-struck and tried to trick Reeves into giving him an autograph. Dator offered him his employee discount, which would require Reeves to sign his ledger.
Dator tweeted: “‘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 not getting his autograph.”
Two minutes later, Reeves would surprise Dator by returning to the box office.
We’ll let Dator finish the story.
“‘I realized you probably wanted my autograph,'” (Reeves) 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 sees his movie.”
“I realize later that he bought an ice cream cone he didn’t wan, just to get receipt paper so he could scribble his autograph for a 16-year-old idiot.”

Yup, Keanu’s cool.
Dator’s story is the latest to paint Reeves as a no-fuss, down-to-earth type guy. He has been caught on phone videos riding the subway without an entourage.
