In June 2019, Keanu Reeves was at the Cyberpunk 2077 video game launch. During his speech, someone shouted at him, “You’re stunning!” Most famous people would blush, say something funny, or just say “thank you.” Keanu did something else, though.
Keanu Reeves is an actor, a millionaire, a philanthropist, and an all-around nice guy with a very kind heart. He has everything, and he keeps getting more and more famous every year. We like his movies a lot, but we love him even more because he seems like one of the most normal stars in Hollywood. Could there be something else that makes us love him even more than we already do? 100% yes! And not just one more, but ten more. Here are 10 stories about Keanu Reeves that will make you love him even more.
1. He always thanks people who help him very much.
One of the most well-known stories about Keanu Reeves happened on the set of The Matrix, a fantasy movie series. After the second and third movies did well, the star split his pay so that everyone on the set could get a fair wage. Also, each of the 12 stuntmen was given a motorbike as a present.
The same thing happened after the fourth movie in the series came out. Keanu spent a lot of money before the opening of The Matrix Resurrections to make sure that everyone who worked on the movie could be there. He set up a private jet, a hotel room, tickets to the movie’s opening, and brunch for the next day.
2. He is always modest.
People on the Internet called Keanu “the Internet’s boyfriend” because there were so many stories about how kind and generous he was. But Keanu had no idea what was going on.
At the opening of Toy Story 4 in 2019, a reporter wanted to know what the star thought about his “title.” At first, the actor didn’t get what was being said about him, so he asked, “I’ve been what?” “Everyone is just so crazy about you. The reporter asked, “How come you didn’t know that yet?” “No, that’s…weird,” the star said with a smile, adding that he appreciates the help and that it’s always great to be positive.
He is a simple person.
3. He’s a simple guy.
Another thing that happened at a party to celebrate the release of the movie Daughter of God, in which Keanu starred, shows how humble he is. The bouncer at the club where the party was held didn’t recognise him, but Keanu didn’t make a big deal out of it. Instead, he stood in queue for 20 minutes in the heavy rain to get into the party for his movie.
But that’s not the end of our story. Keanu then found someone else’s credit card at a party. He got up on stage, stopped the music, and said into the microphone, “Hey, Don Jonas! I found your credit card outside, and I’ll give it back to you if you come see me.”
4. He always knows what to do when things go wrong.
At the end of March 2019, a plane going from San Francisco to Los Angeles had to stop in a small town called Bakersfield because of an emergency. Keanu Reeves was one of the people on the plane. He got on a bus with other people. Along the way, Reeves kept people entertained by telling them interesting and surprising things about the place they were suddenly in. He also played Bakersfield country songs.
5. He tries to help anyone who asks.
Keanu Reeves gives money to help find a cure for cancer. After his sister was struck with cancer, he started giving money to different groups. Also, in June 2020, he sold a 15-minute Zoom date to raise money for a group that helps sick kids. Through his organisation, Keanu also gives away millions of dollars in secret to children’s hospitals. He also gives money to groups that fight for the rights and safety of animals.
6. He always says the right thing.
Keanu always knows the right and funny thing to say. If someone asks him how he stays grounded, he will say, “Well, I mean gravity.”
Keanu can also give smart and deep answers: “What do you think, what happens to us when we die?”I know that our friends and family will miss us.
7. He surprises people.
One time, Reeves stayed at the same hotel where James and Nikki Roadnight were planning their wedding. At the hotel bar, the groom ran into Reeves and asked him to come to the party later. He was very nice and said he would stop by, but the couple wasn’t sure if he really would. But Keanu did show up and applaud the couple on their marriage.
8. He thinks we’re all beautiful.
Keanu Reeves showed up at a demo for the video game Cyberpunk 2077 out of the blue in June 2019. During his speech, Keanu used the word “breathtaking” to describe how the game made him feel. Someone in the crowd shouted back, “You are breathtaking!” And Keanu said, “You are so beautiful! You are all so beautiful!” The video of this happened to go popular, and we were once again sure that Keanu is awesome.
9. He is a real pro.
