Stacey Hunt says when she heard that Reeves was filming the movie up the street from her home in Slidell, Louisiana, her 16-year-old son Ethan decided to give him a warm welcome with the sign that read “You’re Breathtaking,” which references his now-iconic line at the E3 gaming conference last month. A few hours after they posted it in their front yard, a car rolled up and the actor got out to admire the poster.
Reeves apparently asked if he could sign it – obviously, Hunt said yes. Then the family chatted with the actor, took some pictures, and he was on his way. “What you read about him being such a great person with a great heart is true,” Hunt tells CNN.
