    "You took me on the ride of my life."

    “You took me on the ride of my life,” Drew said, before revealing that the gesture had a serious impact on her outlook on life.

    "I was so free, I was such a free human being, and it was just this moment where I just remember loving life and being so happy, and I hold it so dear because the older we get, the harder it is to get to that feeling."

    Keanu, for his part, didn't seem to quite remember every detail about the drive. "We probably went fast," he replied. Probably!
