But Keanu’s real generous side came out when the actor gave up part of his claim to a share of the profits of the two sequels of ‘The Matrix’, ‘The Matrix Reloaded’, and ‘The Matrix Revolutions’, so that the special effects and costume departments would have more money available.
Reeves, who appeared recently in ‘John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum’, continued to be the man of the moment in real life as well, as the deep-voiced actor’s public love recently reached a fever pitch. ‘John Wick’s’ popularity is very much about Keanu Reeves’ continuing and regularly regenerated star force.
In terms of creating fully original and sequel-friendly franchises, Mr Reeves is probably the most popular movie star of the modern era. Reeves also stole the show in the adorable rom-com ‘Always Be My Maybe’ on Netflix, in which his role as a parody of himself has caused a Twitter meltdown.
