Keanu had to go through a lot in his life, but he managed to stay strong and now he is doing whatever he can to make the world around him a little better. He not only donates money to charities on a regular basis, but he uses it to support those in need and is also a polite guy who loves his fans. The people who have met him in person with their stories can support this.
1. He has the utmost respect for women’s personal space.
Fans have noticed that when Keanu poses for a photo with them, he tries not to physically hold his female friends. He simply puts his arm behind them, without touching something, and lets it hover. People considered this act so sweet, that they even called Reeves “a respectful king,” and they continue to praise him for paying so much attention to this information.
2. He participates in many charity organizations, but never brags about it.
For years, he has contributed millions to children’s hospitals and various cancer charities, but he is still humble about his actions. In addition, the star supports several different charities where he aims to help improve the quality of life for underprivileged children and finances vital initiatives such as performing arts, education, reducing childhood obesity and promoting a wide variety of causes such as human and animal rights.
He recently auctioned the video calling app Zoom for 15-minutes of chat with him. It was not about talking with his fans that was the main idea. Currently, Keanu works with the children’s cancer charity group called Camp Rainbow Gold, and the money raised will be donated to this camp to support the children who need care. The auction was opened June 15th and closed June 22nd.
3. He is truly generous.
“A friend of the family builds film sets, doesn’t design them, but is one of the poor dudes that just builds. He worked on the set anyway for The Matrix and Keanu heard of the family trouble he had and gave him a $20,000 Christmas bonus to help him out. He was also one of the few people on the team who genuinely wanted to know the names of people, who would say hello and mean it, and who would talk to people like they were his friends and not below him, only because they were doing practically nothing to make a package. “—kahi / Reddit.
4. He is always a gentleman.
Keanu not only displays his love for women when taking pictures of them. Once, he was filmed sitting on a subway train, where he saw a woman getting on with a big bag. The star hasn’t hesitated, giving her his seat. The video went viral very fast, making more people fall in love with him!
5. He keeps his cool in crisis situations.
The star was on a flight from San Francisco to Los Angeles in December 2019 but his plane made an emergency landing at California’s Bakersfield airport. The landing had been due to a mechanical problem. While this was going on, people managed to film some Instagram stories showing Keanu talking to a member of staff and then taking the lead in helping the passengers reach their destinations. The passengers and Keanu later sat in a van, where he had discussions with them.
6. He appreciates his fans.
So yesterday this sign was out on a lawn on the way to set. Keanu jumped out of the car and did this. pic.twitter.com/OI1bQJ1nfy— Ed Solomon (@ed_solomon) July 18, 2019
When Reeves was in the middle of the filming of the third Bill & Ted movie when he saw a sign made by one of his fans saying: “You ‘re awesome.” Keanu jumped out of the car, kneeled down and put his autograph on the sign.
7. And he enjoys interacting with them!
“I was on vacation with my family in Paris and my mom saw Keanu go into a trailer nearby. She went and knocked on the trailer door, but another man came out. He said that Mr Reeves had had a long day of filming and was very tired. And then Keanu comes out and says, ‘No, no it’s fine, always nice to see some friendly faces.’ And then he asked in the calmest manner — ‘How’s that jet lag treating you? ‘He was extremely sweet to us and down to earth, and he took a photo and even signed a random piece of paper from our hotel. ” — JustinLennox / Reddit.
“My boyfriend works near Gold Coast Studios where John Wick 3’s shooting took place. He tried to get a picture of Keanu for days but he still missed him. When he eventually found him, but the poor man looked completely drained, as he was filming for about seven hours. It was one of the last days he ‘d be on camera there, too. He continued walking at first and very obviously didn’t want to be bothered by his friends, but then he stopped, called them over, and let them each take a picture with him. “- JustinLennox / reddit
8. He’s even postponed personal matters to help others.
“Once upon a time a friend of mine was stuck at the side of the highway when her car broke down. She didn’t have a mobile phone and had no way to call for help. A Porsche then pulls over and Keanu was inside. He was trying to help her jump-start the car and he called AAA for her when it didn’t succeed. He had offered to drive her home when they towed her car. He drove about 50 miles out of his way, dropped her in her house, gave her his telephone number, and told her to call him if she needed any further help.
9. He knows how to be nice to people who work with him.
“Back in the late ’90s, on Chain Reaction set, I got my first job as an assistant prop designer. Keanu treated the stagehands and ‘grunt workers’ every day during the last few weeks of filming by taking us out for a free breakfast and lunch. I have been working on about 30 different sets since then and have never seen an actor as open and welcoming as he is. “—bo2dd2 / Reddit.
10. He loves what he does.
Keanu is not hiding his love for the movie industry or his work. His handprints, footprints, and signature were cemented on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in May 2019. He expressed his thoughts with the public there, saying: “I love movies. Gosh, I love cinemas! I love to watch them and I love to make them. It is a pleasure to be here today to celebrate on this hallowed land in Hollywood.’
