Keanu Reeves spotted in Jerez...and poses for fan selfies
Monday, September 19, 2022 @ 12:56 PM

HOLLYWOOD legend Keanu Reeves managed to remain almost undetected during a trip to southern Spain's 'cradle of sherry' with some friends – although the Canadian actor happily posed for some selfies when a small handful of locals recognised him.

The Point Break and The Matrix star, 58, was spotted at a restaurant in Jerez de la Frontera and, although the reason for his choice of holiday destination was not revealed, Reeves is known to be a huge fan of motorsport, particularly bikes, and of the race track in the Cádiz-province town.

Named after the late MotoGP '12-plus-one'-times world champion Ángel Nieto – who never referred to his title total as '13' for superstitious reasons – the Jerez circuit is widely known as 'the cathedral of motorsport'.

It's also the birthplace of sherry – and, in Spanish, this liqueur is simply known as jerez, or as fino.

One local resident who spotted the Bill and Ted star and spoke to him said he 'shook hands' with the actor and took a selfie with him, but that 'he told me not to mention it'.

“He wanted to drink his drink and smoke his cigarette without loads of people turning up, and like a fangirl of 15, I went to bed without saying a work so he could chill out,” Manuel wrote on social media.
