As reported by Hello! Magazine, Keanu Reeves has shown his generosity by giving away £50 million of his earnings from the Matrix sequels. The 38-year-old decided to hand over the money to the unsung heroes of the sci-fi blockbusters – the costume and special effects teams.

Keanu is expected to make a total of £70 million from the films, thanks to a deal which guarantees him a 15 per cent profit-share, so he will still net around £20 million. Asked about his prodigious act of generosity, the actor said he already had enough cash. “Money is the last thing I think about. I could live on what I have already made for the next few centuries,” he declared.

And it’s not the first time the Beirut-born star has shown his jaw-dropping benevolence. While shooting the films in Australia he amazed the team of stuntmen by giving them each a £6,000 Harley Davidson motorcycle. And the actor, whose sister has leukaemia, has also channelled millions into cancer research. He is also known for regularly taking entire crews of stage hands and ‘grunt workers’ out for free breakfast or lunch on film projects right back to the 90s.

His gift to the Matrix series’ 29 behind-the-scenes whiz-kids will see each of them receiving £1.75 million.

I have to admit I have a newfound respect for Mr Reeves. Besides the fact that he is immortal and The Matrix is real. He seems like a genuine down-to-earth guy. And now that he’s giving away money to unsung heroes he’s even got karma on his side. He is also less weird than Tom Cruise and starred in Point Break.

Proof of his immortality…


…and a friend to ALL cats.
