Keanu Reeves doesnâ€™t realise heâ€™s the internetâ€™s favourite person, according to his Bill & Ted Face the Music co-star Samara Weaving.
Reeves is in the midst of a career renaissance since starring in the title role in the John Wick franchise and his rabid fanbase have evenÂ campaigned for him to be named Time Magazineâ€™s Person of the Year.
Weaving, whoÂ plays Billâ€™s daughterÂ in the new movie, said she has never even seen Reeves use a smartphone, suggesting heâ€™s not dialled in to his online fame.
â€œI donâ€™t think he knows! I donâ€™t think heâ€™s aware,â€ Weaving told Yahoo Movies UK while promoting her leading role in horror movie Ready Or Not.
â€œHeâ€™s so humble and so sweet. I donâ€™t think heâ€™s aware of [the moment] at all.â€
Weaving said it is â€œso sweetâ€ that Reeves has come to be referred to as the â€œinternetâ€™s boyfriendâ€, but said itâ€™s very unlikely he knows about the moniker.
She said: â€œI donâ€™t think Iâ€™ve even seen him on a phone before. Heâ€™s such a gentleman. Heâ€™s beautiful.â€

Set almost 30 years after Bill S. Preston (Alex Winter) and Theodore Logan (Reeves) were last seen on the big screen in Bill & Tedâ€™s Bogus Journey, the film sees the duo warned by a messenger from the future that they have to create a special song to save the universe.
Weaving said she is excited for the film to see the light of day, but added sheâ€™s worried about the level of expectation.
â€œI canâ€™t think about the audienceâ€™s anticipation for it too much because I get such bad anxiety,â€ said the 27-year-old star.
â€œI really hope that they like it because it has been years and, with that amount of pressure, I just donâ€™t know.â€
Weaving said she had â€œso much funâ€ on the filmâ€™s set, despite her anxiety about how fans will react to the finished product.
She said: â€œIt was a blast to work with Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter playing those characters again.
â€œThe stakes are so high and Iâ€™m so nervous. I just hope I deliver what the fans want.â€
Ready or Not is in UK cinemas from 25 September, while Bill & Ted Face the Music is due to be released in August 2020.
