You are a role model to us all Keanu. God bless.


I dont know if you have posted on 4chan but maybe not.. We've heard many stories about you.. You are a cool guy.. for us you are the ultimate bro we could ever have.. inspiring, noble, humble.. for us, your existence has a worth for we are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not forgive nor we forget. but we do good where good is due. Expect us.


The message is clear. Anon is not the faceless bullies of the internet like the media tells you. We do not forgive those who are wrong, we do not forget those who are wrong and we are not their friend.
But, Keanu Reeves, we do not forget those who set the example for what is right and we will always be their friend.


Thanks for all the films you have made and i hope you bring even more smiles to peoples faces in the future.
Stay strong bro!
Stay strong!


All the best to you, Mr. Reeves.


Thank you for all the smiles you have brought to people's faces and I hope you bring many more.


I never truly respected you at first. But now that I found out about your hard life, the money you donate to charity and your close bond to your sister, you truly are one of my favourite human beings.


Hanging On
Two years or so ago I was procrastinating. Should've been writing my master's thesis but wasn't. Thus, like so many other procrastinators with a computer and an access to Internet, I surfed.
First news. BBC World News, New York Times, Salon.com, local newspapers. Then entertainment. Movie trailers, best ones twice. YouTube. The quality degenerated. Fashion sites. Lolcats humor. Slowly the scope broadened, and I turned to gossip. Beginning with the clever ones like Gallery of the Absurd, then more and more outrageous shit available in the ether. Perez Hilton. TMZ.
At some point (don't remember which, it's been a while) I googled Keanu Reeves, hit "images" and clicked on. Why you? I don't know. Maybe it's just trivial "destiny" in quotation marks. Maybe it's just that without the quotation marks. Like I said, I don't know. What matters is that past 3AM in the morning my surfing came to a sudden stop with yet another picture of you. Vomiting. Hanging out of a car, apparently in Japan.
I felt sick myself. Not because of what I saw. Or to be more precise, not because of the act itself, but the fact that I was able to see it. Me. In Scandinavia, mid-winter, mid-night. Thousands of kilometers and human lives apart I could see a picture of someone I had had an on-off crush on since the tender age of ten at such a vulnerable state. I felt repulsed by the current visual culture of consumption where no moment is left unrecorded. So I stopped. I closed the laptop and went to sleep.
Few days went by, but it was too late. My empathy had been awakened. The procrastinating side of me took advantage of my lingering curiosity. Sooner than I would like to admit, I was back at surfing everything "Keanu Reeves." In quotation marks, since I cannot even begin to think that anything I've read, seen or heard would've been the real thing.
I tsk-tsked my way through the most hideous BS all the while feeling so bad for you. Not because of the often repeated (and exploited) personal histories. Those things are life. And life happens. No one can defend against it. Good and bad things come and go without asking our permission to enter or leave. All we can try to do is hold on tight and not let go. And there it was. I thought (I might be wrong here) I saw in the hundreds of newer pictures someone who had already let go.
Given up and packed the bags ready to go. The thought made me sad. And it made me think of ways to help that someone. I came up with what I wanted to say. But the rational, normal (ok seminormal) side of me held back. Who on their right mind send letters to people they do not know half a planet away? At a tender age of thirty? Me? Hell no. So I held back for a few years. And I saw a turn. I felt better. I didn't sense the giving up anymore. The bags might have been packed by they were not ready to go.
Thank you Keanu, for hanging on.


Most celebrities act like they are gods and should live accordingly. You don't treat us like filth who should throw money at you. I have had many members of my family suffer from cancer and it is a daily struggle. But the only thing we can do is move forward. Thank you for being a wonderful person and giving us happiness when you yourself need it so badly.


Until now, I didn't realize the man you were. I only saw you in some movies, I liked you in most of them, don't know why, I just did. But today I watched something about you as a person, and I'm rather amazed. Keep it up!


Thanks Keanu for all the films you've made so far, and all those which will come in the future. Thanks for contributing to big blockbusters as well as to small, but nonetheless excellent, films. But above all, thanks for being committed to your craft, for working tirelessly to become better and for being true to yourself.


You embody the human spirit more than most are willing to. Regardless life's pitfalls and challenges, you not only persevere, but continue to give yourself to the world in a great many ways.
You're an unsung inspiration to the world.


I usually don't participate in stuff on The Internets, because most of the time I feel there are enough people who already said everything I possibly could contibute on the subject in a funnier, smarter, shorter and more eloquent way. so I mostly just shut up and watch from the sidelines.
This, however, is not about being cool, or witty, or maybe finally getting someone to read my tweets, it is about saying "Hey you, we see that you are making an effort, and boy, do we appreciate that!"
I love when people commit random acts of kindness, and a good part of The Internets sending a box filled with love and kindness to your doorstep makes me teary with joy. I really hope you open it.


Keanu you are honestly the only actor I would ever shake hands with. Thank you for showing people what it really means to give.


Hey Keanu, a lot of people look at celebrities as if they are gods, but we all know you're a normal guy who has fallen on hard times. I hope your world is at peace, and that you find happiness wherever you go. Thank you for everything you do for others without asking for anything in return, not many people can have success like you and keep such a strong willed and decent head on their shoulders.
With much love and respect,


Thank you for existing.


You are the best. I love your movies, they made my life better and you are such a kind and loving person.


I just wanted to show some love. I really enjoy your movies and I wish you luck with your music.


Thanks for being a real person in a land of the unreal. Also, I'd really enjoy photographing you. Perhaps something to be used to promote the American Cancer Society?


Thank you Keanu Reeves!
We Brazilians also love you and are grateful for who you are!


Ever since I was a child, you have inspired me Keanu. Keep up the good work!


You've always been one of my favorite actors. After reading about your life and struggles, you are much more than just an actor to me. You are truly someone I wish to mimic, an idol in every since of the word. Thanks for being the man you are!


I had always liked Keanu's movies — Bill and Ted, Speed — but it was only after I did a search on him, in my early days of the internet, that I became a part of Keanu fandom. I actually had a dream of him after that first night of saving pictures to my hard drive and reading little bits of early fansites. In the dream there was chaos and violence all around me, and Keanu Reeves was standing above me fighting it off as I crouched on the ground below. In the dream I felt him reach down and touch my head"¦and with that touch, I felt safe. The next day I could not get the dream out of my head. See, I had been living quite a violent and chaotic life at that point. I was in a very unhealthy relationship and had an even unhealthier drug habit. In the weeks and months following, I was swept up in learning all I could about him, in connecting with other fans just to talk about him, sharing news and articles and stories. And while it seems many are just finding out what a truly beautiful soul he is, it is something that many have known for a long time. Learning about how he lived his life inspired me to live mine better, and kinder — both to myself and to others. His beauty inspired a burst of creativity in me and I began my own little site devoted to wallpapers I made and eventually taught myself web and graphic design. The fans I met and connected with became my closest friends. With those friends I was able to make trips to see him play with both his bands and had the chance to meet him briefly a couple times. He was always friendly and gracious and kind, even though he surely just wanted to be the bass player on those nights and not the movie star. One thing I never was able to say to him was "˜thank you', so I am so happy to have the chance to do that here.
So, Thank You, Keanu. Focusing on you, your music and your movie career, as "obsessive" as some people might have considered it, shifted my focus from a very bad person and a very bad drug and eventually allowed me to leave both behind me. That was 10 years ago and I believe that you very possibly saved my life. For the way you inspired me in so many ways, I know you definitely made it better.


Awesome Human Being
Thank you for being one of the greatest inspirations in my life: in my creative work, in chasing my dreams, and in the constant struggle to become a better person. Your films took my mind on a myriad adventures; the characters you breathed life into became my friends. I know you have expressed unease about people holding you up as a role model because you feel unworthy of it, but you were — you are — mine, and I continue to look up to you and try to emulate your kindness, generosity, humility, politeness, compassion, intelligence, diligence and drive.
In early 2008 a few of us formed the Keanu SWAT Team (http://www.whoaisnotme.net) with the intent of defending you against the many vocal critics on the Internet. I remember how we started out full of idealistic hope of making a difference and how (for me at least) this eventually dwindled into a desperation that our tiny efforts would be futile. Though they were not our doing, the events of the past few days proved me wrong and showed that I should have continued to have faith.
Things are going to change now. I can feel it. And you deserve all this positivity after those years of bashing and being treated as a joke.
Thank you once again for being an awesome human being.
Always a fan,

Anakin McFly

Thanks for dealing with all our shit. We make fun because we honestly like you. Consider this a standing invitation to any party I'm throwing.


Many people who have large amounts of wealth view the world very differently then the common man.
The common man views the world of the rich in disgust and swears he would approach like a common man if he had the wealth.
However, these ideals of the common man never seem to survive when the wealth is acquired. Your case is a very heart warming counter to the status quo.


Wish I had half the skill/heart you have.


I wish I had some personal story to share, but I don't. However, I had always heard about your generosity and charity and I was always impressed. As an actor I knew you had something too, it only takes watching Little Buddha, A Walk in the Clouds, The Lake House to see that [even if people think I am crazy].
Yeah, I am probably jumping on the band wagon, but when you get an opportunity to tell someone they are doing a good job in life one should take it. These days the seem a little dark, and there just just doesn't seem to be enough positive energy being put out.
So you are doing a good job dude. Keep it up!


It started with a movie. The third of the Matrix trilogy. The day I noticed an actor named Keanu Reeves. The beginning of many revolutions in my life.

Ever since, I'm learning : how to watch a movie, how to appreciate acting, how to "˜read' a story; the importance of research, as in reading the original material and all before the first encounter with the movie itself; that the simple fact of paying attention can indeed take one a long way"¦ With every movie, every character, every script, I'm learning something new.

So thank you, Mr. Reeves. For the movies. For the characters. For the interviews, and the little snippets of your life you're willing to share with us. For the music. For the inspiration. For your kindness towards fans. For everything.

Wishing you success with your current and future projects,


Ever since having to write a paper on our favorite actor in 8th grade I've looked up to you as a hero and role model. I've never really met you, nor do I have any amazing tales to tell, but I still wish to extend my thanks towards you the best I can.
Keep being an amazing person, bro.


I've always really liked you, but to hear of the troubles you've been through and the acts of generosity and kindness you still lavish upon the world, regardless of how it has treated you, has increased my affinity for you a thousand fold.
I hope all turns out better than expected, and I will be watching your movies thinking of how beautiful and genuine a person you are. Namaste ;)


After reading your story, you are truly an awesome guy. Fame/money generally go hand in hand with being a douchebag, or at least losing touch with reality. Thanks for breaking the mold, Keanu.

Michael Jordan (I'm assuming this isn't the guy from Space Jam, but thanks Mike!)

Thank you for your work in the movie Little Buddha. Now I am beginning to see why your character in the movie resounded so deeply with me: I've got a sneaking suspicion that you were simply and effortlessly being yourself.
Your compassionate life is an inspiration. A deep bow.


Thanks for being a down-to-earth guy. You're one hip cat :)


When so many of us fail at being decent or even good human beings, thank you for succeeding.


I don't know or have ever worked with Keanu, but he sounds like good people to me. The world would be a better place with more people like him around. His kindness is inspiring.


I have no idea what it is like to be in your shoes. I have only the slightest of ideas of the personal battles you face every day. Throughout your years of acting, I am certain you have faced a lot of criticism of your acting, and a lot of passing "Woah"'s.
To be the person you seem to be in the hivemind of Hollywood, it shows your genuine character and resolve to live to a higher standard. To treat others as equals is no easy task, regardless of where one works.
I would like you to know that I thank you for being you, for being the kind-hearted person that you are, and for being such a genuine person despite all of the hardships you have faced.
With much appreciation,


Thank you for being awesome.
If you're ever in New Hampshire, we'd love to have you over for dinner. You're the man.


I just wanted to pop in and say thanks for making some great movies without becoming pompous like so many other actors in Hollywood. Keep up the great work and I look forward to seeing more of your movies!


I've always loved many of your movies (the Matrix being near the top), but I never realized you were so spectacular in your personal life as well. I don't have any first hand experience of your kindness, but I've recently read many stories of your generous spirit and your apparently genuine kindness. You sound as if you're a more awesome person than many of us "ordinary" folk, and that actually gives me a little spark of hope for humankind. You are fantastic! Thank you for sharing yourself with us for these many years! There are a lot of us out here who really appreciate you! Keep it up man!


Well, i don't have much to say at the moment, so i just want to take this time to express my gratitude to Keanu Reeves.
From jordan with love, Mr. Reeves. :D

Hadi Shamaileh

I don't have any story accept to relate that you are an inspiration. Thanks for entertaining us and here's to many great years!


I've met Keanu twice, and he really came across as a genuinely nice guy. I was lucky enough to get on the green screen set for Chain Reaction, and I watched him do his scenes over and over. Between takes he hung out and chatted with the crew. I got to take his picture, but was too fangirl-shy to talk to him. Rachel Weisz was very nice, too.
The second time I met Keanu was when his band, Dogstar, was in England. They did a show in Aylesbury, and he came out and hung out, signed autographs, posed for pictures, and was an altogether great sport about it all.
I want to thank Keanu for being such a truly nice, genuine person, and for not letting Hollywood fame go to his head. I want to thank him for being nice to fans, even taking time to write autographs and have his picture taken with fans after a long day's shoot. And of course I also want to thank him for all the movies he's made, the choices he's made to not just go for blockbuster scripts, and his never ending commitment to his job and the people he works with. Keanu, I thank you.


I spent many years training as an actor, looking up to different "professionals" for their skills and lifestyles as inspiration to my own. I found many characters I looked up to, many being played by Reeves himself, but no actors that really embodied the selfless and genuinely kind/loving nature that a high-powered life can facilitate. Thank you sincerely, for proving to those who respect a form of art as a vehicle through which we can change the world, that it not only is possible- but is still being persued.


I don't have any personal stories of meeting Keanu or someone else who has meet him/worked with him firsthand that I personally know, but I do however have to issue a thanks. Keanu has always been one of my favorite people because of his generosity and his genuine kindness towards others and although he may be known for his acting, I think being known for his good character is more important. I just want to say a simple thanks for being a great person and for simply caring for those that surround you.


When I was 16, I had a debilitating blood disease similar to, but distinct from leukemia. The money you have poured into cancer research will benefit people like me, whose treatment was completely developed from cancer researchers.
Thank you. I know people with diseases like mine will have a better chance at survival in the future — because of you. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.


Keanu Reeves you're the man. You give me inspiration to work harder at school, work, and life in order to make something of myself so that one day I can make a difference in society. Thanks for all that you do.
I think I'm gonna go watch The Matrix right now.


Thank you, Keanu, for being the kind of actor who does his job without thinking he's God's gift to man-/womankind. You have my respect for being a regular guy, a generous supporter of many charities, and a great actor. I've followed you for 17 years, and I'm looking forward to the next 17.


Even though people say you suck, I think you're great.

I had a few friends working special effects jobs on the Matrix movies, he bought all of them fucking HARLEYS for Christmas during the shoot for the second one.
One of those guys, Paul, said that Keanu was the most sincere, humble and lovely dude he'd ever met. Said he eschewed contact with the cast in favour of hanging out with the crew, was the only guy the martial arts coaches respected out of the whole cast, and was the bravest man he's ever met. That scene in the first Matrix film, the assault on the office tower lobby — Keanu turned down earplugs for all the charges blowing everywhere taking "bullet holes" out of pillars, walls etc, just for authenticity. When he turns and hides behind a pillar which explodes with bullets hitting it on both sides, Paul said "the entire crew was about 15 metres away, with ear protection, and all flinching anyway when the charges blew — Keanu just took it like a complete badass".
Paul also told me that Keanu once explained to him why he was getting so many action roles. He had injured himself at some point and had fused vertebrae in his upper back or neck, so when he turned his head, his shoulders and chest tended to follow, because of his limited flexibility. "It makes me look dynamic, rather than disabled" was his explanation.


I give Keanu props, as being a fellow techie, there's nothing more important than having a honest and mutual relationship between the actors and their supporting crew. For gods sake, so many actors just need to learn that putting on a show is a group effort, and it wouldn't just "happen" without good techies.


A family friend builds movie sets, doesn't design, is one of the poor dudes that just builds. Anyways he worked on the set for the Matrix and Keanu heard about family trouble he was having and gave him a $20,000 Christmas bonus to help him out. He also was one of the only people on the set that genuinely wanted to know peoples names, would say hello and mean it, and would talk to people as they were his peers and not below him just because they were practically making nothing to build a set. I've never heard anyone say Keanu is douche, seems like the nicest person in Hollywood from a second hand experience.


Struggling musician
I met Keanu when he was in Australia doing the matrix. I knew who he was, but when I asked him what he did for a living he answered "I'm a struggling musician". I thought that was sweet.


Back in the late 90s and fresh out of college I got my first job as an assistant prop designer on the set of Chain Reaction (Keanu was a supporting actor with Morgan Freeman). EVERY DAY for the last few weeks of filming, Keanu treated the stage hands and "grunt workers" (including myself) by taking us out for free breakfast and lunch. He was genuinely a very nice guy to work with.
Since then, I've worked on about 30 different sets and have never met an actor as generous and friendly as him. Most actors I've seen and worked with are total douches who always think they are better than us. Keanu on the other hand, at the very least, was socially approachable and definitely kindhearted.


Good Times Ahead
Cheer up, Bro! My friends and I wish you all the joy and good luch in the world!


Keep Being Fantastic
I love you bro, we all do! Keep being fantastic!

John Reed

Keanu is kick ass
You are so incredibly kick ass, you always play the best characters in movies and your name is KEANU FUCKING REEVES. I mean it doesn't get more kick ass than that. Keep being awesome.


An Inspiration
I don't know if you're really depressed or not, but that's not what this is about for me.
The stories I've been hearing about you taking care of your sister, the people you work with, and even strangers you run into, have been a total inspiration.
You've made me want to be a kinder person. I'm going to treat someone really well and make someone smile today, and every day for the rest of my life. Thanks man.


Love you Keanu
Thank you for your wonderful movies. I am one of the many people who support you and love you.

I had two dollars left in my bank account. I just donated them to cancer research. Keanu Reeves is a genuine human being, and an inspiration to us all. I hope you're happy, Keanu, where ever you are. You truly deserve it.

Keanu you are amazing
I'm praying for you! I hope everything works out!

Jay Dye

We're behind you, brother!
Keanu, I don't know anyone who's ever heard a bad story about you - and that's a rarity, not just in the acting field but throughout the entire human population. You've dealt with everything life has thrown at you with aplomb, and if there ever was a better person suited to the title of "gentleman", I've never heard of him. Stay excellent, and know that you're appreciated, both as an actor and as a man.


Hey Keanu, you're awesome! Your movies have always entertained me and Dogstar was the first concert I ever went to, way back when. Smile, there's a lot of love for you here!! :-)


a little smile please
Dear Keanu,
A little smile goes a long way for your fans who only want to see you happy. Please humor us and give us your best shot.
We love you.


I named my car Keanu!
You are so important that my car is named Keanu. It is a 2004 Hyundai Accent, coloured Alpine Silver. When it has a hard time going up big hills I usually say 'COME ON, KEANU'.


Hey Keanu,
just donated 5 bucks to the "The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society", so cheer up mate!
Even when you're being sad, you're being awesome!

Matthijs Ewoud van Loon

Thanks Keanu
Thanks for all the good shit you\'ve out over the years. Stay Wirey!


You made me dream!
Keanu, with all your movies you made me dream since i was a little boy.. I donated some money to SU2C... everyone should do it... even if as little as 10$, everything counts :)
You made me dream, I wanna be able to say i made you dream for once.

Giuseppe Parziale

Love from Brazil!!!
don't worry, man... just BE HAPPY :)


Love endures
Love endures - know that it is all around you even when you can not see it. You are not alone.


High Five, Keanu!
I've always loved your movies and secretly wished I could act just so I could play opposite you in one of them.
You're a great man and deserve all the happiness anyone should expect out of life and more.


Great Guy!
Keanu, you've done so well and stayed so kind in the face of adversity!




Cowboy Bebop do not mope :D
From Russia with love. Anything will be OK! :3


We love you!
You rock, Keanu!


I less-than-three you, Keanu
You're the most humble actor I've ever heard speak. You seem like a great guy, and to boot, your face absolutely fascinates me. Continue being awesome; the Internet has your back.


Hello Mr. Keanu Reeves
Don't feel bad about everything ok?
There are always things to be happy about. Just try and find some (I recommend getting a siamese cat, they'll love you to death)


Amazing Actor
I was told I looked like you quite a few times. Can't wait to see what your next big role is!

Nicholas Dawson

Totally excellent, bro.
Keep up the good work, in the knowledge we're all being excellent to each other thanks to you.


thank you
Thank you for all and don't give up!


Thank You
I would like to thank you for being such an inspiring person.


Thank you Keanu! Your films are wonderful, your humility is astounding and I very much admire you. You're an inspiration to us all <3
