Keanu Reeves has won millions of hearts with his and will continue to do the same in the future, as well, not only with his work but also with his humble and gracious nature. Reeves has been given the tag of being the “nicest guy in the world” by his fans, and his co-stars and colleagues have shared plenty of stories to support the claim. He recently went viral, followed by the release of John Wick 4, for helping the crew to carry props up the stairs.
While fans love to praise the actor for his sweet and kind nature, the Speed actor is not very great at receiving compliments, and the situation often gets complicated for him. And something similar happened to him while promoting the third installment in the neo-noir franchise when an interviewer complimented him for being the nicest guy.

Keanu Reeves Gets Uncomfortable When Complimented
Keanu Reeves is one of the Hollywood stars who is known for being polite not only toward his fans but to everyone around him. While his co-stars and colleagues have plenty to say about his thoughtful and grounded nature, the actor is not too comfortable talking about these things himself.
And it was quite visible during an interview with Geek Bomb, where he seemingly stumbled on his words when complimented for being the nicest guy in the world. “Oh, that’s ridiculous. Anyway, it’s nice to hear, but it’s not true,” he responded to the stories shared by the interviewer.
While he agreed with some of these stories, he also denied some of the claims, saying, “I don’t recall.” As the conversation came to an end, the interviewer was also able to notice that the Constantine star was not feeling very comfortable and told him, “I am so sorry if I made you feel uncomfortable.”
While Reeves doesn’t share much about these stories, they eventually come out in one way or another, including the wrap gifts for the crew that ranges from special and unique t-shirts to Harley-Davidson motorcycles and customized Rolex watches.
