Keanu Reeves, 58, is a Hollywood nice guy. Due to netizens’ devotion, he’s become known as “the internet’s boyfriend” as well as a movie star. Fans appreciate Reeves for various reasons, from his role in “The Matrix” and “John Wick” films to his memes. Reeves is a Hollywood legend and internet icon.
There are many other examples of Reeves’ integrity. He donated to and listened to destitute individuals, and he gave up his subway seat for a stranger. He also donated to charities and gave money to “The Matrix” crew.
This Monday, he rewarded his stunt squad from the current “John Wick” film with new Rolex watches as a thank you. Following filming in Paris, the actor gave his stunt squad four Rolex 2020 Submariner watches with individual messages on the back. He got one for himself that matched the others, making the item more than just a present but a shared artifact from their film set experience.
In appreciation of Reeves’ kindness and selflessness, let’s examine the many reasons he’s Hollywood’s most humble celebrity.
Since Hollywood, Reeves’ wardrobe has been a draw. Reeves is noted for wearing blue jeans, a jacket, and big beat-up boots instead of luxury clothes. Reeves’ clothes, like everyone else’s, reflect his self-image. He doesn’t need expensive clothes, vehicles, or homes since he knows they don’t make you happy.
He knows how to spend money to make people happy. Reeves frequently gifts his film crew. Last week, his stunt squad from “John Wick: Chapter 4” received four Rolex watches. One stuntman, Jeremy Marinas, tweeted a snapshot of his watch’s customised message on social media. TMZ reported: What a kind and tasteful gift. Reeves gave his film team gifts before. In an interview with “John Wick” director Chad Stahelski, he gave his 12-person stunt squad Harley-Davidson bikes after filming one of “The Matrix” movies. As one of the franchise’s sequels wrapped, the star gave the 800-person film crew a bottle of champagne. Reeves doesn’t mind giving money away since he realizes it’s not everything. According to a Wall Street Journal article cited by ABC News, Reeves paid $75 million of his “Matrix” proceeds to the special effects and costume design crew. Movie executive told newspaper:
“He believed they made the movie and should participate.”
He treats everyone well. The star has been photographed giving to homeless individuals many times. In 1997, Reeves sat with a homeless man, shared beverages and snacks, and lay on his back as he told stories. Two paparazzi accidentally found him.
Reeves also donates heavily to charities, notably those that help children with cancer. He told Ladies Home Journal in 2009 that he had a private foundation that “helps with a couple of children’s hospitals and cancer research.” “I don’t like to link my name to it,” he said.
Once his younger sister Kim was diagnosed with leukemia in 1991, he seemed to be personally involved. In 1999, she went into remission.
We’re sure Reeves’ generosity won’t end here.
