“Can I take it back to a memory that I have with you?” Keanu agreed and she continued. “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.”

Report say that Keanu seemed to have one of those light-bulb moments as we too remembered the night. He could not help himself because he let an, “Oh my,” escape his lips, but he let Drew continue with her version of the story. She said.

 “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 beingIt was just this moment where I just remember loving life and being so happy, and I hold it so dear because the older we get, the harder it is to get that feeling.”

Reeves Seems to Be a Daring Romantic

This is not the first story of Keanu Reeves charming the ladies with his speedy two-wheeled vehicle. Drew Barrymore aside, The famous Sandra Bullock too! Well known for playing roles in many a movie like “Miss Congeniality.” According to Sandra, who shared a memory she had from many years back, Keanu Reeves had rocked up at her house randomly following a conversation they had had about truffles and Champaign. Reeves was determined to give this actress her first taste of the combination, so, he drove all the way to her house on his motorbike with some champagne, truffles, and flowers to top it off. 

According to Sandra, she let him into her house and they shared the champagne and the truffles, but Reeves apparently had a date he had to get to, so he hopped back onto his bike and was off. “When I first met him, I would spend as much time as I could filling a silence, just to feel comfortable. And the more I jibber-jabbered on, the quieter he would get. And I thought, ‘I don’t understand what’s happening! He’s looking at me with eyes of confusion. He’s quiet. Did I say something to offend him?’ And then a day or two later, he would arrive with a note or a little package. Saying, ‘I thought about what you said’, and he would have his response”

Keanu seems to be the kind of guy who likes to think long and hard before he replies. No wonder he has the ladies all confused, yet interested at the same time...
