Keanu's $313m pay day
Keanu Reeves has become Hollywood's highest paid star thanks to the success of the Matrix film series.
According to press reports today, his contract pays him 15 per cent of the gross take - giving him a paycheque of $US206 million ($A313.79 million) when videogame, DVD, TV and merchandising sales are taken into account.
And he still stands to earn more when the final film in the trilogy The Matrix: Revolutions comes out in November.
