Earlier this week, actor Keanu Reeves was on a commercial flight from San Francisco to Southern California but before he could reach his destination, the plane had to make an emergency landing in Bakersfield, California. Several passengers waited around to find out how they would get transported to L.A. That's where Keanu would step in!
Stranded passenger, Bian Rea, decided to document the journey that showcased Keanu in a real-life Speed role.
"So I got on a plane w/ Keanu…He was very pleasant. Took photos, talked about latest project w/ 2 very enthusiastic airline employees. We boarded—He sat 2 rows up. I fell asleep. Then all of a sudden…Our plane w/ Keanu was diverted to Bakersfield," Brian shared. "They just announced we may be taking…a bus."
Before you think Keanu went all Hollywood on us and demanded special treatment, social media shows a different story. Instead, the actor asked questions, helped sort out the situation and even gave options to passengers. Keanu ultimately opted to take a two-hour van ride to Los Angeles where he read out facts on the drive and played country music with fellow strangers.
Pretty cool to be stuck on a van with someone as kind as Keanu for two-hours if you ask us! You can check out Brian's story below!
