So Hard

Crazed-up dudes on a mission to oblivion. The stars you do not want to tangle with…

Keanu Reeves

Dressed scruffy to outline his attitude to life. "I don't like people to tell me what to do. It infuriates me. When I don't feel free I react in a really strong way." Thrown out of three schools in a row. "I was hopeless at high school - I failed everything but Latin and got kicked out. Then I went to Toronto's Theatre Arts School because I fancied acting but was kicked out again for being rude and talking too much."

Experimented with drugs at 18: "It was really groovy. I dug it, hallucinating is one of the most amazing things I've done. But nowadays I'd say I was more of a motorcycle junkie." Claims his body is a wreck "from all the crashes I've had on my bike." Despite his injuries he still won't wear a helmet claiming that the Helmet Law Of California is "petty government crap".

He insisted on doing dangerous stunts in Point Break and if you look closely you can see the scars on his stomach from his motorbike accidents.

The 26 year old has no time for women right now: "Sure, I have no shortage of offers but I prefer to channel my passions into bikes because they're cool, fast and less trouble…"
