    Keanu Reeves is too good for this world.

    We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us which famous people are truly beloved by everyone. Here's what they had to say.

    1. Dolly Parton

    "Dolly freaking Parton! I don’t have enough characters to say all she has done to help others (vaccines, literacy, relief from wild fires in Tennessee, etc.). Not to mention that voice, those songs, wigs, and the most fun personality in the world!" β€”calebw4f1d98965

    "KEANU FREAKING REEVES. He's never done anything just because his image would be made better by it. Every incident you hear about Keanu is sweet and kind β€” also, I don't think it matters a lot, but the fact that Keanu dates someone his own age who he seems to be really in love with is quite refreshing to see in Hollywood." β€”s4bb472acb

    3. Lin-Manuel Miranda

    "Definitely Lin-Manuel Miranda β€” ever since Hamilton was released on Disney+, I got slightly obsessed with it for a month. I got into so many fan pages on Instagram and watched so many cast videos on YouTube, and all I can judge from them is that Lin-Manuel Miranda is a gem of a person. It seems like he always has a friendly relationship with everyone on his projects, he's immensely talented and yet has no ego, and he really cares about his fans, often replying to them and listening to their concerns. I also love how he geeks out over his wife β€” he's just an overall amazing celebrity." β€”s4bb472acb
