Octavia Spencer Goes To See All Of Keanu Reeves Movies For This Cute Reason

Octavia Spencer is sharing a really cute story of how she met Keanu Reeves.

During her appearance last week, the 50-year-old The Witches actress opened up about a few of the famous names she’s fortunate to call her friends, including Chris Evans and Katy Perry, before she told the story of how Keanu came into her life.

“Of course I started crying like a baby, like, ‘Keanu!’ It was so fabulous,” Octavia recalled. “He’s somebody I like and my friends know that and it was like the sweetest thing.”

Octavia revealed in a 2014 interview that Keanu was the first celebrity she met when she moved from Alabama to Los Angeles to pursue acting.

“I had an audition and my car broke down and no one would help me because my car was so dirty until Keanu Reeves,” she shared on The Meredith Vieira Show. “He was on a motorcycle and had his little motorcycle helmet and sunglasses and was like, ‘Hey, you need some help?’ And I kid you not, I was gonna have him get in and I was gonna push it and he was like, ‘No no I’m gonna push you.’ And I’m thinking, ‘Oh he’s gonna touch my car!’”

Now, as a thank to Keanu for that, Octavia says she goes to see all of Keanu‘s movies “every opening weekend because that was a sweet thing to do.”

'The Witches,' Starring Anne Hathaway, Will Skip Theaters & Launch on HBO Max This Month

The highly anticipated remake of The Witches was supposed to hit theaters this month, but the movie will be released on HBO Max instead!

Anne Hathaway, Octavia Spencer, and Stanley Tucci star in director Robert Zemeckis‘ fantasy adventure based on the classic story by Roald Dahl.

The Witches tells the darkly humorous and heartwarming tale of a young orphaned boy (newcomer Jahzir Kadeem Bruno) who, in late 1967, goes to live with his loving Grandma (Spencer) in the rural Alabama town of Demopolis. As the boy and his grandmother encounter some deceptively glamorous but thoroughly diabolical witches, she wisely whisks our young hero away to an opulent seaside resort. Regrettably, they arrive at precisely the same time that the world’s Grand High Witch (Hathaway) has gathered her fellow cronies from around the globe—undercover—to carry out her nefarious plans.

Also starring in the movie are Kristin Chenoweth, Chris Rock, and Codie-Lei Eastick. The screenplay was written by Zemeckis with Oscar winner Guillermo del Toro and black-ish creator Kenya Barris.

The movie will start streaming on HBO Max on October 22. Watch the trailer below!
