Keanu Reeves Reveals The Two Celebrities He Approached For Autographs

Keanu Reeves doesn't ask just anybody for their autograph. When you have as much public adoration and acclaim as he does, I'm guessing getting autographs from other celebrities starts to feel arbitrary.

On a recent episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, the Matrix actor revealed that there are only two celebrities he's approached for autographs.

Being an A-list celebrity probably takes a lot of novelty out of meeting someone famous and getting their autograph.

But John Wick star, Keanu Reeves, recently revealed that there were two people he has gotten autographs from, and they might surprise you.

For someone that has only approached two people for autographs, Keanu chose very wisely.

On the latest episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, he got candid about who those two celebrities were, and the hilarious message one of them wrote.

He explained that the first autograph he asked for was from the Velvet Underground's Lou Reed.

He added that he didn't even ask for the autograph on behalf of himself.

"It wasn't for me — it was for a friend," he said.

"And [Lou] was cool about it," he added, before describing the simplicity of Reed's penmanship.

"It was [on] a little piece of paper, and it was [in] blue ink. Yeah, it was good. It just said, 'Lou Reed,'" the 57-year-old shared.

Not bad for Keanu's first autograph experience, amirite?

The second celebrity he approached was someone he had already spent a significant amount of time with filming 1989's Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure.

Comedy legend, George Carlin.

Keanu recalled Carlin putting marginally more thought into his autograph than Lou Reed did.

"I asked for another. George Carlin. Yeah, he gave me an autograph...," he said, adding that the note had Carlin's signature comedic flare.

"It was really funny," he detailed. "He wrote — I think it was, 'Dear Keanu, [expletive] you!'"

The Point Break star admitted that he initially thought Carlin wrote the note uniquely for him, only to find out that he writes that for everyone that asks for his autograph.

"I always thought he just wrote that for me," he said.

"And then I met someone else who said that he wrote the same thing to them!"

Nevertheless, Keanu still thinks the note is great. "Anyway, beautiful," he said.

Two autographs. Two great stories.

If there's one thing we know about Keanu Reeves, it's that he never disappoints.
