Energy can’t be created or destroyed, and energy flows. It must be in a direction, with some kind of internal, emotive, spiritual direction. It must have some effect somewhere.Keanu Reeves, famous actor raised in Toronto

A Keanu Reeves Encounter
Toronto raised actor and superstar
Keanu Reeves was raised in the Yorkville neighborhood of Toronto. Dubbed Mr. Nice Guy…
Dator tweeted a story “In honor of John Wick 3 I have a Keanu Reeves story. Keanu came to the movie theater I worked at in Sydney in 2001. He was working on the Matrix series at the time. It’s a quiet, Wednesday morning – almost nobody is seeing movies.”
“I’m working the box office, bored as hell and suddenly this dude walks up in jeans, a leather jacket and a horse riding helmet,” he continued. “A full a*s, weird equestrian looking helmet. It takes me a solid 30 seconds to ignore the helmet and realize it’s Keanu Reeves.
Dator, who was just a teenager at the time, wanted Reeves’ autograph. “He wants to buy a ticket for From Hell, the Johnny Depp movie. I’m so f**king 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 tweeted.
Reeves didn’t quite understand why he would use an employee discount since he wasn’t an employee and politely declined Dator’s offer. “’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,” Dator noted.
