Keanu Reeves is a true Hollywood legend and superstar, but he’s also a kind philanthropist and coworker. Reeves has given away money that might have gone into his pocket during his career. He has also contributed significantly to several charity causes without taking credit.
Reeves has often exploited his celebrity (and the money that comes with it) to boost the earnings and efforts of others. As a result, he’s made a good profession for himself while never forgetting to help others.
Reeves secretly handed crew members from his Matrix revenue about $75 million while the Chicago Tribune reported that he planned to give away $80 million from the entire trilogy’s earnings.
Proving that fame and wealth are not driving him, he said, “Money is the last thing on my mind. For the next several millennia, I could survive on what I’ve already created.”
That’s not all, though. While filming in Australia, the much-loved actor presented a $7,800 Harley Davidson motorcycle to each member of his stunt crew, according to Hello!
A Reddit user nicknamed “bo2dd2” shared a firsthand experience meeting Reeves on a movie set, praising his friendliness and approachability.
He said, “Back in the late 90s and fresh out of college I got my first job as an assistant prop designer on the set of Chain Reaction (Keanu was a supporting actor with Morgan Freeman). Every day for the last few weeks of filming, Keanu treated the stage hands and ‘grunt workers’ (including myself) by taking us out for free breakfast and lunch. He was genuinely a very nice guy to work with.” Adding, “since then, I’ve worked on about 30 different sets and have never met an actor as generous and friendly as him. Most actors I’ve seen and worked with are total douches who always think they are better than us. Keanu on the other hand, at the very least, was socially approachable and definitely kindhearted.”
The Reddit poster concluded: “That was one example (that involved me directly), but (on the same set), I remember him going out of his way to give my friend a ride to the repair shop to pick up his car … I’ll write more as I remember, but its been a while.”
Nothing about Reeves’ charming nature appears to have changed in the decades since he first made his mark in the profession.
Keanu Reeves net worth
Keanu Reeves has a net worth of $ 350M, according to Celebrity net worth. The Matrix and other John Wick properties are thought to have provided a significant portion of this. The well-known brands have grossed over $1.6B and $573M at the movie office, respectively (not counting their next deliveries or the money obtained with the sales of DVD and merchandising). Not to mention the other high-grossing, non-action films that Reeves has starred in over the years, such as Something Has to Give, Toy Story 4, and the popular Bill and Ted trilogy.
The Constantine star also owns a sizable real estate portfolio, including a 5,607 square foot mansion in the Hollywood Hills that is estimated to be worth more than $8 million. Oh! He is never short of transport either, having eight cherished automobiles, including a Porsche 911 Carrera 4S.
It’s not as if Reeves cares about how much money he makes. “Money is the last thing I think about,” the humble star once said. “I could live on what I have already earned for millenea to come.”
