Almost all famous celebrities will not go out of their house or go some place without their fancy ride. Only few of them can still or will still ride public transportation, and it’s truly amazing to see famous stars doing humble things like the old times (before getting famous). One of them is the well-known Keanu Reeves caught riding a public train. The famous star of the “Matrix” movie was seen in the video wearing nothing fancy and no bodyguards, just the plain and simple Keanu Reeves!
Keanu is famously known as a simple, kind and generous actor. He’s been praised by many and this video is a proof of how a good person he is.
Keanu was silently riding a train when he saw this woman standing. Immediately he offered his seat. Such chivalry, a true gentleman!
And there he was, standing simply while the lucky woman didn’t even realize that a famous star gave his seat for her.
Watch him below:
Story of Keanu Reeves: Published on Oct 3, 2013
“His life is accentuated by constant tragedy, and it is hard not to admire his bravery once you find out what he has been through. He is also incredibly generous and down to earth, and these acts often get overshadowed, or never spoken of at all. He is the unsung hero of our times so I thought I would take some time to talk about a man whose life you would not wish on an enemy!
A man whose strength, in real life, greatly outshines some of the heroes he plays on the big screen. This is the staggering true story of Keanu Reeves. Every single moment of the man’s life has been marred by tragedy and loss.
Have you noticed why Keanu looks sad most of the times? When I looked into his life I realized why he’s sad and he has his own damn good reasons too. His father was arrested when he was 12 for drug dealing. Later his Dad abandoned his family. Obviously that instilled trust and abandonment issues in him right away. His family later moved to Canada and there he had several step dads.
Next up, his best friend and fellow actor, River Phoenix, dies outside The Viper Room from a drug overdose when he was just twenty three. That is something you never, ever get over. The scent of death and that sense of lingering sadness never fades away from that kind of loss.
Fast forward to 1998. Keanu meets a woman, Jennifer Syme, and he falls madly and passionately in love with. She gets pregnant with his child in 1999. In his eyes, this is the ultimate. His life is complete. Then, in 2000, the unthinkable happens. His baby is delivered stillborn. As the result, Jennifer falls into a deep postpartum depression, which Keanu can do little to shake her from. Their romance cools off a little as a result of the loss, but the couple remains close. But in 2001, his world is torn asunder yet again, when Jennifer is killed instantly in a car accident. From the time he watched his girlfriend die, Keanu avoids serious relationships and having kids.
He donated seventy-five million dollars to the special effects and costume design team of The Matrix films for, quote, making him look good. He’s one of the only Hollywood stars without a Mansion. He said: ‘I live in a flat, I have everything that I need at anytime, why choose an empty house?’.
Almost in the same year Keanu’s father was arrested again and his younger sister was diagnosed with leukemia. Today she is cured, and he donated again 70% of his gains to Hospitals that treat leukemia.
In one of his birthdays, he got to a little candy shop and bought him a cake, and started eating alone. If a fan walked by he would talk to them and offer them cake. He doesn’t have bodyguards, and he doesn’t wear fancy clothes. When they asked him about ‘Sad Keanu’, he replied: ‘You need to be happy to live, I don’t.”
Even after all he has been through, all the loss he has felt, he never shows that. He never asks for compassion or pity. He just keeps on living. And if that is not the sign of a true hero, I don’t know what is !
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. Live, love and count your blessings because tomorrow is never guaranteed. Let’s all Share his incredible real story and inspire millions out there..”
It’s so inspiring and admirable to see such celebrity having this attitude despite being so famous and that’s one thing that most people like about Keanu Reeves. – His simplicity and kindness.
