Who is Keanu Reeves?

Born Charles Reeves on the 2nd September 1964, in Beirut, Lebanon, he is an actor, perhaps best known to the world as Neo in the film trilogy “Matrix” (1999-2003), and most recently as John Wick in the film trilogy of the same name, of which two films have been released. He has had a number of other notable roles throughout his career, appearing in over 90 film and TV titles so far.


Where is Keanu Gone? Is He Dead?

Well, Keanu is very much alive, though his film enemies aren’t. In his most recent film “John Wick” first and second part, Keanu or John has killed them all. He is now working on the third part and has several other projects in store, such as the crime-thriller film “Siberia” (2018), then the sci-fi mystery film “Replicas”, and the TV mini-series “The Rain”, scheduled for release in 2019.

Keanu Reeves Bio: Early Life, Family, and Education

Of mixed ancestry, Keanu is of Irish, English, Chinese, Hawaiian and Portuguese ancestry, the son of Samuel Nowlin Reeves Jr. and Patricia née Taylor. Keanu had a hard childhood, moving from one country to other, while his father spent time in jail for selling heroin at Hilo International Airport. Samuel left Keanu and his mother when Keanu was only three years old, though Keanu kept in touch with him until he turned 13. He lived in Sydney, New York City, and then Toronto, Ontario Canada. His mother remarried three times, each of which required another move, so that he was eventually brought up by grandparents and nannies. His troubles in childhood reached a whole new level in his adolescence; he suffered from dyslexia which caused poor grades and other problems, so that he never finished high school, but instead focused on acting. He actually wanted to become a hockey player, and earned the nickname of The Wall in his early career, but after he suffered an injury, his dreams of becoming a professional player disappeared.

Career Beginnings

Keanu’s career actually started when he was only nine years old, when he featured in a theater production of “Damn Yankees”. Six years later he made another stage appearance, this time as Mercutio in the play “Rome and Juliet”, performed at the Leah Posluns Theatre. He moved to Los Angeles when he turned 20, after obtaining a green card through one of his stepfathers, and living with Paul Aaron, also one of his stepfathers, Keanu started attending auditions, and in 1984 made his screen debut in the TV series “Hangin’ In”. He then focused on commercials, and appeared in one for Coca-Cola, before returning to the stage in the play “Wolfboy”. Erwin Stoff became his manager and agent, when Paul Aaron convinced him to take Keanu under his wing. It was in 1986 that he felt the first rays of success, when he was cast in the drama film “River’s Edge”. After that appearance, Keanu began his uprising, and before the ‘80s ended, he featured in a number of prominent films, such as the romantic dramas “Permanent Record” then “Dangerous Liaisons”, both  in 1988, while in 1989 he starred as Ted in the comedy film “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure”, next to Alex Winter and George Carlin.

Rise to Prominence

He started the ‘90s with the lead role in the action thriller film “Point Break” in 1991, while the same year he reprised the role of Ted in the sequel “Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey”, and then played Jonathan Harker in the horror film “Bram Stoker’s Dracula”. Throughout the ‘90s, Keanu enjoyed success with such roles as Siddhartha in the film “Little Buddha” in 1993, then as Jack Traven in the action film “Speed” (1994), while in 1995 he was Johnny Mnemonic in the film of the same name. Before the ‘90s ended, Keanu had one of his most prominent roles, as Neo in the sci-fi action thriller film “Matrix”, written and directed by Lana and Lilly Wachowski, and also starring Laurence Fishburne and Carrie-Anne Moss, and which became an instant hit, winning four Oscars, and more than 30 other prestigious awards. He repeated the role of Neo in the sequels “The Matrix Reloaded” and “The Matrix Revolutions”, both in 2003, and certainly it was the role of Neo that launched him to prominence, and from here it became quite easy for Keanu to continue his career.

Continual Success

Keanu started the next decade with the lead roles in a couple of romantic drama films, such as “Sweet November” in 2001, co-starring Charlize Theron and Jason Isaacs, and then “Something’s Gotta Give” in 2003, with Jack Nicholson, and Diane Keaton. In 2006 he was the star of the animated crime-drama film “A Scanner Darkly”, with Winona Ryder and Robert Downey Jr. next to him, while in 2008 he was Klaatu in the remake of the sci-fi thriller film “The Day the Earth Stood Still” from 1951. After that, his career entered into a slump, and with roles in such films as “Henry’s Crime” in 2010, and “47 Ronin” (2013), which haven’t been well welcomed by the critics and public in the whole, his career stagnated for a few years.

Career In Recent Years

His career resurrected with the role of John Wick in the film of the same name in 2014 – although controversial for its screenplay, it won several awards and the public was delighted with the film. Most recently, “John Wick: Chapter 2” was released, and became even more popular than the first part, so the producers decided to make the third installment. Aside from the role of John Wick, Keanu had a notable role in the drama film “To the Bone” in 2017.

Keanu Reeves Awards

Keanu’s efforts in the acting industry have been recognized with a number of prestigious awards, including the Teen Choice Award for the film “The Lake House”, and a Blockbuster Entertainment Award for “The Matrix”. He has also been awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, in 2005, among many other differing awards.

Keanu Reeves Net Worth

Since launching his career, Keanu has appeared in a number of successful films, which have benefited his wealth, and even those which failed commercially still benefited his net worth. Some of the most profitable films in which he appeared include the “Matrix” trilogy which grossed over $1 billion at the box office, while “John Wick” first part grossed over $130 million with only a $20 million budget, while the second part grossed over $150 million with a $40 million as a budget. So, have you ever wondered how rich Keanu Reeves is, as of mid- 2018? According to authoritative sources, Keanu’s net worth is as high as $350 million. Rather impressive, right?

Keanu Reeves Personal Life, Wife, Children, Affairs, Interests

Keanu suffered a personal tragedy when his girlfriend, Jennifer Syme gave birth to a stillborn child in the eighth month of pregnancy, a tragic event which apparently caused the couple to eventually break up. Jennifer died in a car crash in 2001. Since then, Keanu has been seen with several beauties from Hollywood, including Charlize Theron and Jamie Clayton. However, he is currently still single. Keanu is not a religious person and often calls himself an atheist though has said that he is rather spiritual, but has never revealed his practice to the public, saying that it is personal and private.
His pictures have become internet memes, most recently the one of him on a horse chasing a motorcyclist, a scene from the upcoming film “John Wick 3: Parabellum”. Also, a picture of him sitting on a bench looking rather depressed became a meme with sayings such as “Sad Keanu” or “Keanu is Sad”; a holiday was created by a Facebook fan page, as the 15th of June was named as Cheer-up Keanu Day.

Philanthropic Activities

Aside from career, Keanu has found time to contribute to the community; he has supported such organizations as PETA, then the SickKids Foundation, and Stand Up to Cancer among others. In interviews, Keanu stated that he isn’t fond of money, and has given away most of his earnings from “Matrix” and other films. He said that he has earned enough to live on for the next few centuries.

Motorcycle Enthusiast

Motorcycles have been Keanu’s passion, and he was looking to start his own motorcycle company; it was in 2007 that he met Gard Hollinger after Keanu wanted to make some changes on one of his bikes. This meeting resulted in a further collaboration, and in 2011 Keanu and Gard started the motorcycle manufacturing company Arch Motorcycle.

1[on the possibility of Bill and Ted 3] It's a long story. There's lots of subterfuge and conspiracy theories. There's a whole thing... I might have to do one of those independent press, conspiracy, other-name kind of [statements] explaining why it hasn't happened yet, because it's pretty dark out there... There is [a script]. There's all sorts of stuff and it just can't - it's just - there's darkness out there that's keeping it from happening... It's that part of the story where it's looking grim. It's the dark period of the idea!
2[on directing himself as a villain in Man of Tai Chi (2013) The first day was not fun, because one is so objective and one is so subjective. As an actor, you only have your responsibility to your role within the whole, and the director has a responsibility to the whole and you in it. So it's a different mindset. And you're literally, physically, in two different spaces.
3[on his beliefs] Sure I believe in God and the Devil but they don't have to have pitchforks and a long white beard.
4[1992] It's only very recently that I've been approached with, 'Would you like to do this?' Mostly, I'm still auditioning, which there's something to be said for. Up to now, my only real choices have been: 'Hmmmm, an audition, go or not go? Go!' I auditioned seven times for _Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure (1900)_ and all the 'finalists' had to read with everyone else-me, Pauly Shore, Josh Richman, Alex Winter and others. I met with Francis Ford Coppola three times before he asked me if I wanted to play the part in Dracula (1992).
5[on auditioning for Oliver Stone's The Doors (1991)] I auditioned a few times, but I don't think I was ever seriously in the running. I was terrified. I just read some of Jim Morrison's poetry and listened to some of his music and did what I could.
6[1995, on My Own Private Idaho (1991)' You know what's great? Right after I finished Dracula (1992), I went to Paris to visit a couple of friends, shipped over one of my Norton's, my '72 750 with California plates, and just hung out for two-and-a-half weeks. My Own Private Idaho (1991) had just opened at a theater right near my friend's house where I was staying. I got stopped by a couple of American students who'd seen it and they bought me a beer. Which is what you should do in Paris: sit in cafés, talk, hang out. I had miraculous weather, so it didn't rain on my parade. Then, I went to New York to visit friends, sat down, hung out, and the same sort of thing happened there. So, do I want more movies that lead to experiences like that? Yes, please.
7[1995] L.A. has been my place of abode for seven years and I have a little place in New York City. I don't even have a house house, but I have been living in the same place in Los Angeles for a couple of years and it's just now becoming a home. I like to be free and unfettered. I like the option of being able to do anything and go anywhere, anytime. I like to have my house open. A lot of my friends have keys to my houses and I like to have everything, you know, 'What's mine is yours,' and to drink wine, talk and hang out.
8[1995, on his idea of happiness] Lying in bed with my lover, riding my bike, sports, happy times with my friends, conversation, learning, the earth, dirt, a beautiful repast with friends, family with wine and glorious food and happy tidings and energy and zest and lust for life. I like being in the desert, in nature, being in extraordinary spaces in nature, high in a tree or in the dirt, hanging out with my family, my sisters.
9[on Patrick Swayze] He was a beautiful person, an artist! Patrick, he just wanted to experience life and, for his work, he wanted to take the opportunity of the film and it gave him that sense. There was some sky diving sequences in this film we did together and as filming was going on it came to be that Patrick was jumping out of airplanes all the time. I think he had over 30 jumps during the course of filming and so the production served him with a cease and desist which he listened to until they got to Hawaii. He jumps out of planes and did the flips and falling to the ground and he did it with an open heart. I'll always remember his buddy for lighting up a room with his presence. I can say what I know that he lived life to the fullest.
10[on River Phoenix and My Own Private Idaho (1991)] We were doing I Love You to Death (1990), and we got the Idaho script. We were driving in a car on Santa Monica Boulevard, probably on the way to a club, and were talking really fast about the whole idea. We were excited. It could have been like a bad dream, a dream that never follows through because no one commits, but we just forced ourselves into it. We said, "Okay, I'll do it if you do it. I won't do it if you don't." We shook hands. That was it.
11[on River Phoenix] River was a remarkable artist and a rare human being. I miss him every day.
12[on River Phoenix] You can't blame Hollywood for what happened to River. Kids are doing drugs everywhere in the world. He had his own very personal problems I will never discuss with the press. They're just way too personal. River had a self-destructive side to his personality. He was angry and hurt that he couldn't have a private life once he became famous. He just couldn't deal with having his private life on the front page all the time.
13It's always wonderful to get to know women, with the mystery and the joy and the depth. If you can make a woman laugh, you're seeing the most beautiful thing on God's Earth.
14Here comes 40. I'm feeling my age and I've ordered the Ferrari. I'm going to get the whole mid-life crisis package.
15I'm Mickey Mouse. They don't know who's inside the suit.
16[when asked if he had any fears] I used to have nightmares that they would put "He played Ted" on my tombstone.
17[on drugs] I've had wonderful experiences. I mean really wonderful. In teaching. Personal epiphanies. About life. About a different perspective -- help with different perspectives that you have. You know what I mean? Relationships to nature. Relationships with the self. With other people. With events.
18[on being a star] It can still be very surreal. It's easy to become very self-critical when you're an actor. Then you get critiqued be the critics. Whether you agree with them or not, people are passing judgment on you.
19I'm sorry my existence is not very noble or sublime.
20I'm a meathead, man. You've got smart people, and you've got dumb people. I just happen to be dumb.
21[when told he'd have to "bite the bullet"] Yes, but I don't have to eat the whole rifle.
22When I don't feel free and can't do what I want I just react. I go against it.
23My name can't be THAT tough to pronounce!
24What would happen if you melted? You know, you never really hear this talked about much, but spontaneous combustion? It exists!...[people] burn from within...sometimes they'll be in a wooden chair and the chair won't burn, but there'll be nothing left of the person. Except sometimes his teeth. Or the heart. No one speaks about this, but its for real.
