Keanu Reeves is one of the best paid actors in Hollywood today, but this has not made him live an easy life as do dozens of American actors and singers.
In comparison to many others, he has had the misfortune of having experienced very traumatic experiences that have definitely marked him for life.
He mistreated and humiliated him in front of people, when Keanu was 12 years old, his father was arrested because of drug trafficking.
Suffered from the mistreatment of Keanu's father for many years, to be able to move forward his children had to work as a stripper in nightclubs. Unfortunately Keanu had different stepfathers who sometimes did less. Today she has a very good relationship with her mother because of everything she did for them.
Her best friend
River Phoenix (brother of Joaquin Phoenix) died of an overdose in 1993. In an interview he says that he often thinks about him and that he could possibly have done more to prevent him from continuing to use drugs. That same year they detained his father again for abuse and sale of drugs.
In 1999 he had the terrible news that his then girlfriend Jennifer Syme, had lost his 8-month-old baby while he was still in his womb, this hurt him a lot.
In 2001 Jennifer Syme was back to a party of the singer Marilyn Manson, when his Jeep Grand Cherokee truck, model 1999, lost control killing her instantly. Syme was only 28 years old.
Keanu's sister, Kim Reeves suffered from Leukemia when she was a little girl. Fortunately, she got ahead and today she is cured. Keanu donated 70% of his profits from the Matrix tape to different hospitals that treat this terrible disease.
It is very common to see him on the street eating only with a very sloppy style, this has led many to say that he suffers a severe depression. In an interview he said:
"Many need happiness to be able to live, I do not".
Although he owns a fortune estimated at 350 million dollars, the actor lives very modestly in an austere department. He is one of the few who does not have a mansion and who, despite his money, always tries to travel by metro.
There was an occasion that wanted to celebrate his birthday only. He bought a coffee and a small cake with a candle in it. He was very approachable with the people who approached him, giving them a smile and offering them some of their cake.
An actor out of the ordinary.
