Keanu's $77,000 farewell bash
Having made close to $US50 million ($92 million) from his back-to-back roles in the next two Matrix movies, Hollywood actor Keanu Reeves was only too happy to fork out almost $77,000 for champagne at his farewell party last week.
Reeves left Australia on Friday after spending the past 11 months living here while shooting The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revisited [I think they meant Matrix Revolutions]
Production on the two sequels concluded on Thursday and Reeves attended an exclusive wrap party at Tank nightclub in the city on Thursday night.
But, generous as ever, he ordered 29 cases of Dom Perignon for his farewell.
Chuffed by the extent of the order, Dom threw in an ice bucket and the offer of glasses for the party.
Reeves needed only 24 glasses. What a happy company of 24 must have been by night's end.
