"It wasn't for me — it was for a friend, and [Lou] was cool about it. It was [on] a little piece of paper, and it was [in] blue ink. Yeah, it was good. It just said, 'Lou Reed,'" Keanu said on The Late Show.

"I asked for another. George Carlin. Yeah, he gave me an autograph... It was really funny; he wrote, I think it was, 'Dear Keanu, Fuck you!'" he revealed.
