Keanu Reeves is auctioning a one-to-one Zoom call for charity, and all I can say is that I wish I had more money.

The star of John Wick will chat with the highest bigger for a total of 15 minutes as part of a prize that's been referred to as "15 Minutes of Fame with Keanu Reeves".

Check out this glorious footage of Reeves voice acting for Toy Story 4:

The event description reads: "Bill & Ted. Speed. The Matrix. John Wick. You know him. You love him.

"This is truly priceless and now you have the chance to Zoom with him from home! Get your questions ready and spend 15 minutes with actor, director, producer and musician, Keanu Reeves."

Hopeful fans can bid on the Zoom call until Monday 22 June, and they can do so here.

According to the auction page, the call has an estimated "market value" of $10,000 (£8,000). However, at the time of writing, the highest bid sits at $17,000 (£13,557).

The money raised by the auction is going to a good cause it and it will be donated to the Camp Rainbow organization, an Idaho children’s cancer charity.

The 15-minute Zoom chat is scheduled to take place for the highest bidder on the week beginning July 6.

However, Reeves is far from the first famous face to command a hefty price for a Zoom chat. The Independent has reported that Entourage star Jeremy Piven has been using the personal celebrity messaging site Cameo to charge fans $15,000 (£10,000) for a 10-minute video chat.

This comes after the 55-year-old recently teased his return for the Matrix 4, praising its "beautiful script and story".

It's been almost two decades since Reeves and his co-star, Moss, played Neo and Trinity in The Matrix, and apparently they weren't sure they'd ever return for a fourth Matrix movie.

In a recent interview with Empire magazine, Moss explains "I never thought that it would happen," detailing that "it was never on my radar at all."

"When it was brought to me in the way that it was brought to me, with incredible depth and all of the integrity and artistry that you could imagine, I was like, ‘This is a gift.’ It was just very exciting," Moss continued.

"Lana Wachowski wrote a beautiful script and a wonderful story that resonated with me," Reeves corroborated. "That’s the only reason to do it. To work with her again is just amazing. It’s been really special, and the story has, I think, some meaningful things to say, and that we can take some nourishment from."
