More than 70,000 fans have joined a bid for Keanu Reeves - aka the "most wholesome person alive" - to be named this year's Time Magazine's Person of the Year.

Hot on the heels of Reeves' stellar performances in John Wick 3: Parabellum, Always Be My Maybe and Toy Story 4, one admirer has launched a petition for the star to give him a top honour.

Reeves' career renaissance has caused stories to resurface and go viral about his acts of generosity.

Some of the actor's top acts include video of him offering his seat up on a New York subway train to a woman, giving millions away onThe Matrix sequels so the special effects team could be paid more, or a 2015 report that Reeves waited for 20 minutes in the rain outside the wrap party for his new film Daughter of God.

Last week, fan Jackson Beem started a petition to see Reeves named Time magazine's Person of the Year; an honour that has previously gone to the likes of Barack Obama, Mark Zuckerberg and John F. Kennedy.

"Keanu is the most wholesome person alive, make him the person of the year! Keanu has secretly donated millions of his earnings to children's hospitals and other charities, and has done amazing things for people in public while ask for nothing in return," Mr Beem wrote.
