 “A friend of mine told me that she was once stranded on the side of a highway outside L.A.,” recalls one Redditor. “She had no cell phone and no way to call for help. Then a nice black Porsche pulls over and as you can guess, it was Keanu. He tried to help her jump-start the car and when it didn’t work, he called AAA for her.

She told me she hoped he would hit on her but he didn’t, he was just a gentleman.”
