Keanu Reeves might just be the king of mic-drop moments. He is known for his acting caliber but more so for his gentle heart and pure soul. And the same reflects in his words and actions time and again. Once, The Matrix star won everyone’s heart including Drew Barrymore’s by delivering a surprisingly heartwarming statement on her talk show. The two go back a long time, having known each other since they co-starred in the 1986 family musical, Babes in Toyland. And Reeves’ appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show was a testament to how close the two are.

During the episode, Drew Barrymore went on to recall a rather special memory about Keanu Reeves. It was her 16th birthday when the John Wick star gave her the best present she could have ever imagined. She reminisced.

“I was at this club and it was my 16th birthday and you came in. 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. We went and you took me on the ride of my life. And I was so free, I was such a free human being. And it was just this moment where I just remember loving life and being so happy.”

The two then talked about how much they love their profession, and how free they feel behind the camera. The Speed actor definitely has a way with words and he went on to profusely describe the feeling. He said,

“I love what happens after someone says ‘action’. We begin and we’re in the moment. We might have prepared a lot and we have our past and history and what we’re trying to do in the story we’re trying to tell, but that moment of ‘action’ or ‘let’s begin,’ it’s fun.”

This is indeed a beautiful description but it wasn’t the show-stopper.

The ultimate lover – Keanu Reeves

Later on in the interview, at one point the 50 First Dates actor claimed that she’s not a fighter, she’s a lover. And anyone else might have let that be but not Mr. Reeves.

He got super serious and interjected, “I don’t know, no, no, because if you’re a lover, you gotta be a fighter,” immensely confusing the host who asked, “how so?”

And with utter ease in a beautiful voice, the man of the hour effortlessly delivered the love quote of 2021, perhaps. He said,

“Because if you don’t fight for your love, what kind of love do you have?”

And it seems the depth of what he had just said hit him the hardest, causing him to immediately stand up and walk backstage while the crowd cheered in unison. And it is safe to say, that moment has gone down in contemporary history ever since.
