Keanu Reeves helped a Filipino fan in need whom he just met.

Keanu Reeves helped a Filipino fan in need whom he just met.

Guys, we need to talk about Keanu Reeves because he is secretly amazing. Sure, he's an A-list actor with a ton of blockbusters to his name, but did you know he has been lowkey giving away his money pretty much ever since he started working as an actor? Time and time again, Reeves has used his earnings to selflessly help others, and we are here for it. He doesn't care about the money. In fact, he's actually known for taking pay cuts so that his costars and the film crew can be paid more! "Money is the last thing I think about. I could live on what I have already made for the next few centuries," said Reeves.  

Keanu Reeves is an amazing human being. Despite having led a pretty hard life filled with a lot of tragedy, he's managed to not only be one of the most giving celebrities of all time but a truly great human being that, by example, is teaching us all that we should "be excellent to each other." So, from donating millions of dollars to the crews of his films, to having breakfast with the homeless, to being seemingly immortal, here are the greatest Keanu Reeves stories ever told.

Reeves has developed a reputation as a pretty generous guy over the years, frequently choosing the artistic integrity of his projects over a huge payday. But Keanu fights on and continues to be one of the greatest celebrity philanthropists around. He really does subscribe to the idea of all people being "excellent to each other".

The amazing private actor hasn’t had the easiest life (mega-fame and million-dollar paychecks aside). Raised in Toronto by a single mother and various relatives, Keanu bounced between four different high schools, never earning a diploma. He and girlfriend Jennifer Syme lost a baby when Syme was eight months pregnant. Less than two years later, Syme died in a car crash. Did all of that tragedy turn Reeves into a misanthropic monster? Nope, he’s the furthest thing from it. Here’s proof:

In a 2003 interview, the actor was quoted as saying “Money is the last thing I think about. I could live on what I have already made for the next few centuries.” Pretty words, but is Keanu all talk? Not according to one Redditor:

“A family friend builds movie sets, doesn’t design, is one of the poor dudes that just builds. He was one of the only people on the set that genuinely wanted to know people’s names, would say hello and mean it and would talk to people as if they were his peers and not below him just because they were practically making nothing to build a set.”

According to Phillips Rodriguez's post on facebook, Keanu Reeves pulled up in front of his place of work. And they started chatting until He mentioned that Phillip's son needs to undergo a kidney transplant surgery and he doesn't have money to pay the bills. So Keanu stood silent for a few moment and went to his car and came back with an envelope full of cash and gave it to Phillip. Let's take a look at the Facebook post of Phillips Rodriguez.

From Philips Rodriguez's Facebook post:

Today Keanu Reeves pulled up at my place of work so we started talking when I mentioned that my son needed a Kidney Transplant surgery and I couldn't afford it at that moment he stood silent for a few minutes then went to his car and came back and gave me this envelope full of money.

Philip didn’t hesitate and get the money for his kid. A lot of people got inspired by what Keanu Reeves did.
