Fans cheered through the screening and netizens later showered their love for the star, confirming that he gets thousands of marriage proposals every day.
Love is blind and a fan's love is as blind as it can get but celebs are often quick-witted. Keanu Reeves is certainly one of them. In a video shared online, John Wick star Keanu Reeves received a marriage proposal from a desperately-in-love fan. Reeves, who appeared on stage to speak at the SXSW Film Festival screening of John Wick: Chapter 4 on Monday, March 13, 2023, had a saucy response to the fan asking for his hand.
The Q and A session involved people from the audience throwing questions to the Constantine star. One person asked Reeves if he ever ages and he replied, "Yeah man, I age. I really — I age. It’s happening, man." The actor mentioned that after the shoot, he kept Wick's watch and wedding ring from the previous movies, as reported by Variety. And just as he said this, a woman from the audience shouted, "I will marry you." Woah, guts. Another fan yelled, "Bring back Constantine." Reeves sighed and replied, "I am trying, man."
The actor was welcomed with open arms by the 2023 South By Southwest (SXSW) film festival but had no clue he would be meeting a prospect. The star has quite a fan following, especially amongst the womenfolk. The 2 hours and 49 minutes screening was packed with 1000 plus audience, and all it took was for Reeves to step on stage along with director Chad Stahelski to make people erupt in crazy enthusiasm. The people showered the John Wick duo with booming ovations for prodigious action sequences, letting out vocal gasps after every crucial twist in the movie's plot. "You guys are amazing," The Matrix star appreciated. "Thanks for that experience. You guys are f***king awesome."

The director Stahelski was also blown away by the response and proclaimed, "This is one of the best audiences of all time." And that unbridled fervor of the audience did not wane throughout the screening runtime. But it was Reeve's raunchy yet humble response that stole all the spotlight. The action star responded to the marriage proposal with, "Yeah! Be careful what you wish for." It almost felt like he was in character as John Wick. And the interested prospect was left speechless. Ah! This man's presence of mind and well-timed wit always leave us amazed.
Twitter users gushed over the star's response and flooded Reeves with immense love. A Twitter user, @RyckebuschPalma, wrote, "I love this man! He is a true entertainer! He gets at least 1000 marriage proposals a day! A lot of them are from me." @MonicaF91778934 commented on SXSW Twitter post, "You look so handsome and charming, my love Keanu." These comments prove why the most eligible bachelor is not devoid of marriage proposals. He's everyone's favorite.
The director also shared an anecdote about the actor. He said, "It was the first day Keanu came on set. He had the suit back on. And it was the first time we were back together in three years. So it was pretty special." The upcoming action flick is said to be one of the greatest action films ever. John Wick: Chapter 4 will open in theaters on March 24, 2023.
