"a person close to Reeves"

I guess this can be put in past tense now. I would get furious if my presents to a friend just get sold. Or is this done for charity?

I don't think "a person close to Reeves" (yeah, formerly close indeed) would have been given his passport OR the Taurus award. All of this sounds either stolen or fake. That's just awful, isn't it?

It's possible that it was a friend who fell on hard times and needs the money; Keanu might have suggested they could sell them away if they needed to.

Dunno, Ani; don't think he'd gift his award to anyone, let alone agree that it would be sold...
Or his passport, even if not vaild. After all, it has his social security no. on it. That's private information. Not to mention that it's kinda illegal to sell passports, even null ones. At least in my country, we have to keep all old passports. And in 2001 when Romania was not in the EU and I had to travel for work in the UK, in order to get the visa the UK Embassy asked me to provide all my passports, if I ever had issued more than the current one. Had to show the old one too, just so they can see the history of visas in that one...
Of course, in the US and Commonwealth it might be different. Or not.

Considering all the items auctioned, it seems more like stolen property than 'friend fallen on hard times'.

Of course, I can be wrong. It's just how it seems from the outside...

Good point about the passport, though I don't think it's stolen - if so, they would have been a lot more secretive about this rather than put it up for public auction.

Although regarding the award... Keanu strikes me as someone who doesn't place much stock in things like that. I don't think he'll ever keep a trophy shelf, even if he were to win an Oscar one day. The physical award is just a piece of plastic and metal. The achievement is something he'll always have with him, and perhaps that matters more; if indeed it matters to him, as an award that's not directly related to acting.

no, it's an award related to all the hard work he put into the Matrix sequels. And while I don't think he'll ever keep a trophy shelf, I dare guess he'd keep the award and the scripts and in a box in the garage. Or something. And doubt he gave them away to make space for the new bike...

His car got stolen too (the first Porsche). Or so an article says...

Anyway. Guess we'll never know.

How unusual for me to agree with both Anakin and LucaM!

Possible that the scripts were a gift and he OK'd the friend selling them for urgent need - although as much as the trilogy meant to him personally? I'm not so sure.

The passport, nope - that is or should be illegal. Messing with passports is not cool especially now.

And I'm not sure about the award - it was given by the stuntpeople, who he really respects - and, as much as his acting has been trashed by idiots, I would not actually be so surprised if he has an awards shelf.

Still, whether he agreed or not, I think it sucks. Using friendship with the rich and famous for profit seems pretty low to me.

Did some searching. It seems to be part of a collection. Press release:

http://www.juliensauctions.com/press/2016/icons-and-idols-hollywood-harold-lloyd.html

"Icons & Idols: Hollywood 2016 Featuring The Collection of Jane Fonda & Harold Lloyd's Rogues' Gallery"
http://www.julienslive.com/view-auctions/catalog/id/188/

Some past auctions were for charity, though I'm not sure if it's the case with this one too.

Though it's still not certain who the mysterious person "close to Reeves" is, and how they obtained the stuff.

But the site also lists this pair of sunglasses as directly donated by Keanu, so he seems aware of these guys: http://www.julienslive.com/view-auctions/catalog/id/188/lot/80553/?url=%2Fview-auctions%2Findividual-lots%2F%3Fcat%3D2407

Either way they seem to be a big and well-known auction organisation, with this particular auction being a big event, so it would be unlikely that someone with something to hide would have tried selling the goods here (where Keanu or at least his people would easily find out about them) rather than at a smaller, more obscure auction.

I don't know how sentimental Keanu is in general when it comes to memorabilia (he did survive many years with all his worldly belongings in a single suitcase, suggesting he's not a fan of keeping stuff), but he might have made photocopies of the script. ;) And he still has his notebooks full of tiny notes... perhaps he figured that fans might appreciate these things much more than he would.

I'm not sure how the Canadian passport system works, but over here, passport numbers are changed with every passport, so there's not really much sensitive information. It might be similar there; there wasn't a social security number on that passport image.

hi, I haven't been here for a while. What's up? Have I missed something important? A new movie or so?

I must say that Keanu is still good for my nerves and brings a relief in difficult times. Anyway the holidays are moving on and it's time to be back to computer/internet again.
