>In both cases, he gave up large portions of his salary so that other actors could come aboard. He explained his generosity to Hello magazine, saying, "Money is the last thing I think about. I could live on what I have already made for the next few centuries."
i KNEW it!
Glad they got Pacino for Devils Advocate. He was amazing.
What a guy.
Working on his PR team has to be one of the easiest jobs ever.
"So what should we do today?"
"I don't know; what did Keanu do this weekend?"
"He gave up his seat on some public transport to a pregnant woman and someone filmed it."
"Oh cool; so that's lunch then?"
*Everyone rides to lunch on their motorcycles Keanu had made for them*
The fact that he did it for much more powerful actors (rather than bringing in new talent) shows that he either really wanted to work with them, or realized that having big talent would help make the movies that much better.
Or he's just genuinely a nice guy :)
Actually a very smart business move. He played the long game and built his cred by working with talent he would not have otherwise worked with.
I’m convinced Keanu Reeves is the most genuine human alive
The other actors should be lowering their salaries to work with keanu.
I love The Replacements. I think that is an under-rated movie.
...and in John Wick he got us Mayhem from those insurance commercials.
We need the guys over at r/conspiracy to figure out why there is a spike in Keanu-love.
I just read a story how he drove a woman home 50 miles out of his way. He didn't flirt with her or come on to her in anyway.
She was pissed.
