"Unfazed by what critics or others may think, the way he lives his life shows his worth. He is possibly one of the most generous, conscientious Hollywood actor out there."

Yes!!! That`s exactly what I feel, and one of the nicest and smartest...t.b.c.

Thank you for posting this wonderful article! Does the author know him in person?

P.S. Avatar will follow soon ARYA...

Nah, I doubt the author knows him in person; all that stuff is what's been going around the internet for years, including the slight inaccuracies.

Yeah, the story about K. giving 75 mil. dollars to the Matrix crew. He did give a part of his money to the team, but it wasn't so much :D The number is greatly exaggerated. :/

The numbers on it always change, sometimes it is higher, sometimes it is lower. Either way, I'm sure it is not something he wants praise or focus on.

Oh, that's nice. Sending thoughts to people of Valparaiso affected by the terrible fires. I haven't checked on that today, better do that now.

While we're on the subject of rumors I asked Keanu about the $75 million giveaway and he had no idea what I was talking about.

*snort* saw that last night. Of course he had no idea... *smh* the story keeps morphing and morphing. Originally heard it was Harley's and I know they went up the coast to the GBR - what a beautiful ride.

Yay, confirmation finally!

Previously the only dissenting view was a single article by Fox News, so I wasn't sure how legit it was. But what I can gather of the facts:

- it was USD$38 mil, but due to some journalists including the currency and others not, it changed from country to country and got inflated to all kinds of weird amounts

- Keanu basically signed off (some? all?) of his percentage earnings for the Matrix sequels to the costume and special effects departments (not people), so that the Wachowskis could afford to finish making the films because they'd gone over budget. Some news article probably reported that, and following articles assumed that he'd given the money to the individual workers rather than the departments.

- He did give the 12 stuntmen a Harley each.

- I love that Keanu had no idea what Roth was talking about. bless.

Wow! 38 million dollars is still a lot of money! o.O

Well, that firstly assumes that it's true. :D

Keanu wouldn't have known how much it was, either way, because they were percentage earnings and not a fixed sum, and depended on how well the Matrix sequels did.

I love that. "It was only $38 million (if true) and Keanu wouldn't have known how much it was in advance."
Clearly - if true - he agreed to this in advance, without knowing how much it would be. I doubt that I would do that, however much money I had. I wish that I would.
