Keanu Reeves has proved himself as a good guy, yet again, after presenting his stunt team with Rolex watches for their work on John Wick 4.
If there’s one thing that the internet can agree on, it’s that Keanu Reeves is an all-around great guy.
The actor currently resides in the Hollywood hills after gaining fame in an impressive range of massively successful movies.
Do you recognize him from Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989) that told the story of two slackers traveling through time.
It was so successful that it was followed by a sequel: Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey in 1991.
Or what about his 1992 appears in Gothic horror-romance, Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
His performance in this rather overblown movie has been pretty much universally panned.
He also starred in buddy-cop thriller, Point Break, in 1991, alongside Gary Busey and Patrick Swayze.
It was a commercial smash and went on to garner a cult following.
He continued this trend in 1994’s Speed.
The suspenseful thriller told the tale of a rigged bus that would explode if it slowed down. Reeves starred alongside Sandra Bullock and Dennis Hopper, but has since shaded the film by refusing to star in the sequel. His reason? “The movies I wanted to make were movies I wanted to see.” Ouch.
But there’s one role that really turned Keanu Reeves into a household name…
His role as Neo in The Matrix franchise.
The movies are still thought of as touchstones within the science fiction genre.
While he may be an incredible actor, Reeves’ talents don’t finish there…
He’s also a talented musician and spent many years playing bass for the alternative rock band, Dogstar, in the ’90s.
Despite his success, Keanu has had a tough life.
From a very young age, Keanu experienced grief.
Keanu’s father walked out on the family when he was just 3-years-old…
He was ultimately arrested for possession of drugs in 1994, leading to Keanu not wanting to ever contact his father again.
His younger sister Kim was diagnosed with leukemia aged just twenty-five.
He also suffered a tragedy when he and Jennifer Syme lost their child. The baby was stillborn on Christmas eve, a month before the due date.
Many may expect the heartbreak and hurt he’s experienced to make him bitter…
But, instead, it’s quite the opposite as Keanu has become an incredible philanthropist. He’s well known for supporting a wide range of charitable causes, from PETA to Stand Up To Cancer.
He’s even quietly funded children’s cancer hospitals for many years.
And the latest thing we’ve learned about Keanu that proves what a nice guy he is?
He sure knows how to look after his staff…
As he’s given the stunt team working on John Wick 4 a rather extravagant gift.
Keanu gifted the stunt team with Rolex Submariners watches as a thank you for their efforts on set, the Daily Mail reports.
He is even said to have personalized each of the watches with a message.
The outlet reports that Keanu gave the watches to Bruce Lee Concepcion, Jeremy Marinas, Dave Camarillo and Li Qiang at the Le Bistro Paul Bert in Paris last week.
What a nice guy!
