Keanu Reeves has proven that he is not a usual Hollywood celebrity. He has a deep love for acting, but the huge sums of money he gets from it sometimes embarrass him.One of the actor’s close friends revealed that Reeves is embarrassed by all the money he makes, so more often than not, he chooses to give it away.
Reeves has been part of major franchises like “The Matrix” and “John Wick” and has reportedly made about 315 million dollars from his movies.
His close friend clarified that Reeves is well aware of how lucky he is to be in a position to make a lot of money. Therefore, it is only natural for him to give back to those in need.
The “Speed” star is known for gifting his co-workers, friends, and family with lavish gifts, and his generosity earned him the title of the most humble man in Hollywood.

One of his first acts of kindness that went viral was when Reeves was filmed giving away his seat on the train for a passenger with a heavy bag.
Reeves has also donated money to a children’s hospital and cancer research. He started a private foundation that also helps a few children’s hospitals and cancer research six years ago, but he chose not to attach his name to it.
