Keanu Reeves Net Worth – He Who Gives Shall Receive More!
How much is Keanu Reeves net worth? Keanu Charles Reeves is a Canadian actor, director, producer, musician, and author. Reeves is most well-known for a prolific acting career, beginning in 1985 and spanning for three decades. So what does Keanu Reeves have to show for his illustrious career? A net worth of a resounding 350Million USD.
Keanu came from a humble background and spent most of his childhood trotting around until his parents settled in Canada and obtained Canadian citizenship.
Like many other actors, Keanu wasn’t exactly brilliant at grasping things in class. He ended up dropping out of high school. He thought he would end up being a pro hockey player until injury deleted that from his career choices – what would turn out to be a blessing in disguise because that’s when he started taking his acting career seriously. Today, Keanu is an undisputed A-list Hollywood star.
Keanu has earned a star in the Hollywood walk of fame and not by luck or fluke but by being an excellent actor. If you frequent theatres then you must have come ‘face-to-face’ with his acting skills with great movies like The Matrix Trilogy, 47 Ronnin and his latest Box Office hit, John Wick. Big TV shows isn’t always enough for somebody like Keanu, so after dominating the acting scene with sublime displays he ventured into directing and production and made his debut in this front with Man of Tai Chi.
Keanu Reeves Business Ventures
If you are a smart guy with a lot of cash flow, it makes sense that you invest some of it because you never knew about tomorrow. Reeves has observed this almost to perfection. Keanu loves motorcycles a lot, and that love gave birth to his co-founded and co-owned company, Arch Motorcycle Company, which makes and sells customized motorcycles.
In addition, Reeves founded a production company, Company Films, with Stephen Hamel which produced Henry’s Crime in 2010. Then there is that thing we all do because we love it even though we ‘suck’ at it and for Reeves, that has to be singing. In 1992 Reeves with his friend Mail house founded the rock music group Dogstar which didn’t enjoy much financial success so we can’t say this contributed to his massive net worth.
Very few people give as Keanu does. Reeves gave away 80Million dollars of his Matrix salary to the crew of the movie because he felt they deserved the money more than him, making each one of them instant millionaires as each got a minimum of 1 Million dollars.
Reeves didn’t stop there as he gave every member of the stunts group a new Harley Davidson bike. Reeves has donated lots of millions to charitable groups particularly those dealing with chronic diseases. He spends over 5 million USD a year on his sister who suffers from cancer. Reeves gives and doesn’t stamp his name on donations to get plaudits. Nicest guy in Hollywood!
Keanu is filthy rich but you can hang out with him and not get star struck, as he is extremely down to earth for a man being weighed down by the weight of his wallet. He once turned down a 10M dollar role in a movie. Reason? He had committed himself to a theater role in Canada. These kind of people come around once in a generation because finding a super-rich Hollywood star who doesn’t care much about money is pretty hard.
