CINEMA: Keanu Reeves donates 70% of his fees for The Matrix to charity.

There has to come a time when Keanu Reeves can make his kind char­ac­ter not be brought up, but that time is not yet. The Matrix Res­ur­rec­tions star donat­ed 70% of her Matrix fees in 1999 to can­cer research, a new report sug­gests. As one of the few Hol­ly­wood actors every­one loves, Keanu Reeves was once again a shin­ing exam­ple to oth­ers with a Lad­Bible report detail­ing how the actor donat­ed around 31 mil­lion dol­lars to help leukemia research.

While Reeves is well known for qui­et­ly giv­ing gen­er­ous dona­tions, it is a cause close to the star’s heart, with her sis­ter Kim strug­gling with leukemia for ten years before going into remis­sion between 1991 and 2001. To Back then, Reeves took time to act to care for her broth­er, to sell her house to be close to her for as long as she need­ed him dur­ing her bat­tle with the dis­ease. He sub­se­quent­ly cre­at­ed a new char­i­ty that helped sup­port adults and chil­dren liv­ing with can­cer, but his name was not asso­ci­at­ed with it as he nev­er want­ed it to be exclu­sive­ly relat­ed to his celebri­ty status.

The report also notes that the actor con­tin­ued to reg­u­lar­ly donate extra mon­ey to the cause as one of his many low-pro­file char­i­ties. In 2020, Reeves auc­tioned off a 15-minute Zoom “date” to ben­e­fit Camp Rain­bow Gold, a chil­dren’s can­cer pro­gram, which was report­ed­ly won with a bid of just over $ 19,000.

Reeves obvi­ous­ly returned to the Matrix fran­chise recent­ly for the fourth film, The Matrix Res­ur­rec­tions, and there’s no doubt that he will have qui­et­ly used some of the film’s mon­ey for a good cause or anoth­er that we can find out. in a few years, because there does­n’t seem to be a time the star has­n’t been seen think­ing about oth­ers before him.

In addi­tion to his extra­or­di­nary char­i­ty, there have been too many sto­ries of the actor’s gen­eros­i­ty on the set of his films to men­tion them, but his most recent act has been to gift each of his mem­bers of the l stunt team John Wick: Chap­ter 4 a $ 10,000 Rolex Sub­mariner. each. This isn’t the first time a Matrix stunt team has received their free­bies, either. Return­ing dur­ing the film­ing of the movie, Reeves thanked the twelve-man crew with a Harley David­son motor­cy­cle each, which at the time, he said, was “a big thank you to all those guys. who helped me to do this “.

While film­ing The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Rev­o­lu­tions, Reeves also took a mas­sive pay cut to ensure the crew had all the mon­ey they need­ed to make the Matrix sequels with cos­tumes and effects. spe­cials she was ask­ing for, and even before The Matrix, Reeves cut his fees for The Dev­il’s Advo­cate when he found out that Al Paci­no would­n’t be able to get on the project due to his lim­it­ed bud­get, sim­ply because that he real­ly want­ed to work with the leg­endary actor to learn from him on set. All in all, it seems that there is and nev­er will be an end to the out­pour­ing of good that comes with every­thing Keanu Reeves touch­es, and in today’s world a few peo­ple like that are. required.
