    "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.

    Keanu added, "I always thought he just wrote that for me, and then I met someone else who said that he wrote the same thing to them! Anyway, beautiful."
