Keanu Reeves participated in a Reddit Ask Me Anything session on Sunday night, and in addition to discussing his Sad Keanu meme ("I think that a picture can tell a thousand words, and none of them can be right. Or true. I'm absolutely a very happy person"), Reeves was asked to recall his fondest memory from the set of "Point Break." His answer:

'Point Break'! Mmmm. Let's see, interesting stories...you know, it was an exciting film to be a part of. Kathryn Bigelow the director really wanted to push the boundaries of what actors could do and with the camera, trying to put the audience and inspire the audience of viewers with the environments, so the surfing, the skydiving, in a way that even the excitement of a bank robbery. And I think all of the actors and the crew felt that, the fight scenes, so there was a real energy from her that I think came through the picture. And working with the wonderful Patrick Swayze, he really spearheaded that as well in that he was jumping out of airplanes while he was filming, the other actors were jumping out of airplanes, I was getting to go surfing, everyone was getting into it. No one robbed any banks. The party scene had some partying going on. And I remember actually I was in LA and Kathryn was casting for the female lead and I remember I saw this woman come in driving this old beat up Cadillac and I was to meet actresses that day, and I saw this woman and I said "that's the actress," and it turned out to be Lori Petty, and I was right. And she's amazing.

As for the burning question about whether he was able to eat some of those delicious meatball sandwiches that Gary Busey's character requests in the film, Reeves had some bad news:

Gary Busey got the sandwiches. I had to go run and chase the bad guy.
