Keanu Reeves is widely known as one of the nicest men in Hollywood—an actor always willing to lend his time for the benefit of others. While Reeves often shuns the spotlight, some of his more legendary actions have made headlines throughout the years. Some of Reeves’ fans might be aware the actor once gave millions from his own salary on The Matrix to members of the film’s production team but they may not know the actor has donated millions of dollars to a cause that is very close to his heart.
Reeves has acted in everything from serious dramas to romantic comedies, but he is probably best known for his work in The Matrix film series. The fast-paced futuristic action films solidified Reeves’ status as an action star, earning him serious critical acclaim in the process. Even though Reeves was already a major Hollywood star when he appeared in the first film, way back in 1999, his work in The Matrix only made him more popular.
