Going out of your way to make someone’s day is already a nice thing to do. But when you’re a celebrity, like Keanu Reeves, your kind gesture can make an impact that lasts decades.

One fan shared a story on Twitter about how he saw the John Wick star at a movie theater in Australia, and the thread went viral. This story is so sweet, it’ll make your day brighter as well.

“Keanu came to the movie theater I worked at in Sydney in 2001,” wrote James Dator on Twitter. “I’m working the box office, bored as hell and suddenly this dude walks up in jeans, a leatherjacket and a horse riding helmet…It takes me a solid 30 seconds to ignore the helmet and realize it’s Keanu Reeves.”


“I’m so fucking star struck I do what any sensible 16-year-old does and tell him I’d like to give him my employee discount. This means he needs to sign my sheet and therefore I have his autograph,” he wrote. “‘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 for not getting his autograph.”

Fortunately for Dator, Reeves came back. “2 minutes later there’s a knock on the door behind me that leads into the box office. I assume it’s my manager. It’s Keanu,” said Dator.

“‘I realized you probably wanted my autograph,’ he 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 and sees his movie,” he wrote. “I realize later that he bought an ice cream cone he didn’t want, just to get receipt paper so he could scribble his autograph for a 16-year-old idiot.” Reeves didn’t have to go back, and yet he did just so he could be nice. Way to go, Keanu!  

It doesn’t take a lot of effort to do something small to brighten another person’s day better, but it can go a long way in spreading joy. You don’t need to be a big celebrity, like Keanu Reeves, to make someone’s day. However, when someone like Keanu Reeves does something like this, it brings a smile to all of our faces.

A disabled dog with no front legs can now run and play thanks to a 12-year-old volunteer at an animal shelter who built her a wheelchair out of Legos.

One-year-old Gracie was dumped at a veterinary clinic when she was a baby. She was covered in maggots and was missing hair under her eyes and on her feet and tail. She was also missing her two front legs due to a birth defect.

The vet reached out to a local rescue called Mostly Mutts Animal Rescue, in Kennesaw, Georgia, who took Gracie in to help her find a new home. The Turley family, who runs the shelter, loved Gracie so much, they decided to adopt her for themselves.

Gracie loves to play with her fur siblings, including a dog who is paralyzed in his hind legs and likes to pull her around, and on who has three legs. While Gracie can get around OK on her own two hind legs, her mom, Tammy, was worried about her getting injured so they enlisted the help of Dylan, 12, a volunteer at the shelter.

Gina Rodriguez doesn't exactly have a great track record when it comes to talking about black representation. There was that time when she (incorrectly) said that Latina actresses are paid less than black actresses. Or that time when she interrupted an interviewer for saying her co-star, Yara Shahidi, was a role model to black women. Or that time when she tried to make "Black Panther" about her. Now, Rodriguez is under heat again, this time for rapping the n-word and being "sorry, not sorry" about it.

Rodriguez posted an Instagram story of herself singing along to "Read or Not" by the Fugees while getting her hair and make-up done. In the short video, she can be seen singing the lyrics, including the n-word, and laughing. Rodriguez deleted the video quickly, but not quick enough. Twitter was, to say the least, not pleased.
