Keanu Reeves is no stranger to the limelight, as the man has been in the entertainment business for nearly four decades. His acting skills have seen him traverse various roles ranging from downright comical in The Adventures of Bill and Ted to something dark and sinister like Constantine.
Keanu’s acting skills might have caught our attention, but it’s not why he has stolen our hearts. Unlike other A-listers, Keanu is as simple as they come. Everywhere he goes, there’s nothing but kind words that follow.
He Means What He Does
Many Hollywood staffers like working with Keanu because he’s always respectful and takes the time to know everyone by name. He even remembers their names! That said, there’s also the chance of getting a mystery gift at the end of the shoot.
This is not uncommon in the entertainment industry, as many talents have a penchant for sharing their spoils with the staff, but we doubt anyone can match what Keanu has done over the years.
Everyone Gets a Million
In The Matrix, Keanu’s deal saw him make millions of dollars in profit which would have made him one of the wealthiest actors of his time. Surprisingly, after receiving his paycheck, our good man gave the production team part of his bonus.
After doing his math, Mr. Reeves decided to give each production crew member a staggering $1 million. How many guys would give up a hundred dollars, let alone 75 million? The back-end deal was good; each of the 75 crew members was sorted equally!
It’s Not an Isolated Case
This is a recurring trend, and it wasn’t just for show. Since this outing, several journalists did some digging while following up on the actor, and they discovered he is an ardent giver who loves stepping in whenever he can.
That is why Keanu is a favorite amongst the charity circles. Nevertheless, he likes to keep his endeavors a secret, and it takes either a loose tongue or some heavy-duty detective skills to uncover his activities.
Another Team Gets a Surprise
In another interesting case, Keanu decided to gift his four stuntmen something special to wrap up shooting John Wick 4. Of course, our man always goes above and beyond; this time, he decided to go the extra mile.
Teach Us Your Ways Keanu
Instead of giving the guys cash, Keanu gifted the stars Rolex Submariner watches. These timepieces are elegant on their own, but Keanu decided to go one step further by engraving special messages on each piece.
The stuntmen never saw it coming, and going by their social media posts; it’s evident they loved their gifts. It takes a special person to go this far in showing appreciation, and we must applaud Mr. Reeves for his work.
On the other hand, we need a few lessons on how he manages to remember all these people’s names as he never makes any mistakes in that department. Unfortunately, most of us are exemplary with faces, but a few seconds after an introduction, we can barely remember the conversation we had, let alone the person’s name. No wonder many people feel like Keanu is a glitch in the matrix – an incredible one at that!
