Keanu Reeves made Drew Barrymore the happiest on her 16th birthday

Keanu Reeves appeared on an episode of The Drew Barrymore Show, back in December 2020. The actress Drew Barrymore recalled an incident from her childhood, in which she said that Reeves made her the happiest person at the time.

During their conversation, Barrymore reminisced about her 16th birthday and shared with Keanu Reeves that,

“I was at this club and it was my 16th birthday, and you came in—this is the memory I have of it, if you have anything to add or change please let me know—and you walked in and you grabbed my hand and you took me outside and you put me on your motorcycle. And we drove at the warp speed of my life.”

The actress continued to add that “You took me on the ride of my life. And I was so free, I was such a free human being”, whereas Reeves said that he couldn’t recall the encounter, but she noted that it was just one of the moments where she just remembered loving life and being happy.

Barrymore told Reeves at the time that she holds onto the memory so dear to her because the older they get the harder it is to get to that feeling. She added that she is now realizing that one cannot have a better Sweet 16 than being put on his motorcycle and having the moment where they understand what freedom is.

“I can honestly say I don’t get sick of it! Not once in 20 years! I love the character, and after two decades of on impressionable young minds, SpongeBob has been very impactful on folks’ lives. It’s always fun for the cast to watch people’s reactions when we do the voices “live“, or when we insert a fan’s name into a famous line from the show.”

Drew Barrymore asked the actor about the moment when he feels free the most, to which he said that he feels free when he is acting, noting that he loves what happens after someone says action and they begin and they are in the moment. He further added that the actors might have prepared a lot and they have their past and history and what they are trying to do in the story that they are trying to tell to the audience is what he finds the most fun.
