When it comes to Keanu Reeves , movie “nerds” will immediately remember the once-in-a-lifetime role of Neo in the Matrix series, or the actor’s great performance that made John Wick a success. 

Temporarily putting aside the glory of his brilliant career, Keanu has long been an inspirational symbol for everyone because of his tenacious will to live and his determination not to let fate beat him down.

 So much so that even a tragic life has to surrender to Keanu, the actor known as the kindest man on the planet who is likened to a firebird, constantly rising strongly from the ashes.

Childhood is not perfect

Keanu was born into a dysfunctional family. When he was 3 years old, his mother and son were abandoned by their father. 

Keanu’s childhood was a series of days of temporary living here and there because he had to follow his amorous mother who migrated from place to place.

 Changing schools frequently had a huge impact on Keanu’s dyslexia. This is also the reason why he never graduated from high school because he couldn’t remember what he read.

 Not giving in to illness, Keanu worked harder than normal people and today, he has accumulated a lot of knowledge for himself from books. Keanu can even recite a line from a novel by writer William Shakespeare.

The lonely man over and over witnessed the person he loved leave the world

Despite his cold, romantic appearance, Keanu possesses an extremely warm smile. However, he rarely smiles. On screen, he always chooses the image of a lonely man, just like his own tragic life.

In 1993, Keanu experienced great pain and loss due to the death of actor River Phoenix, his close brother, who passed away forever at the age of 23 due to drug overdose.

 Previously, the two were an identical couple, wherever they went they never forgot to mention the other person, to the point that they were rumored to be in a homosexual relationship.

Keanu’s soul was somewhat soothed when he met and fell in love with the beautiful Jennifer Syme in 1998. The couple loved each other passionately and were extremely happy when they received the news that Jennifer was pregnant with their first daughter.

1 year later. The joy was short-lived. Before the child could cry for the first time, he was stillborn in the mother’s womb in the 8th month of pregnancy. So Keanu, who had never met his daughter once in his entire life, had to swallow his tears and send that short-lived child home.

The child’s death caused a huge hole in Keanu and Jennifer’s relationship. Not long after, the couple broke up but still kept in contact as two close friends.

 Fate once again decided not to forgive Keanu when it took the life of the girl he loved most 18 months later in a tragic traffic accident. At the funeral, people felt as much pity for the short life of the short-lived actress as they felt for the emaciated man walking next to her coffin.

 Keanu buried Jennifer’s body next to their daughter’s grave in Westwood Village Cemetery in Los Angeles. From then on, the smile disappeared from the actor’s lips.

Rising from the ashes to become the kindest man on the planet

Faced with such life tragedy, it is difficult for anyone to maintain a clear mind so as not to turn to stimulants or alcohol to forget like Keanu. 

He chose cinema as a place to relieve his sadness, rushing into filming like a moth, using work as joy to fill the sadness in his heart. In the most desperate moment, Keanu always told himself: “Every difficulty in life helps you grow.

Be grateful for those dark times because thanks to them you will become stronger.” The Matrix star’s positive lifestyle and unyielding energy make the public admire him.

In a 2003 interview, Keanu once said: “Money is the last thing I think about. I can live on what I have made for the next few centuries.” His sharing was met with a lot of sarcasm from the online community.

 The actor did not object at that time, only using his actions to prove that he was not talking nonsense. In fact, what Keanu did went beyond what he said.

Keanu deducted 80 million USD from the 114 million USD salary for filming Matrix 2 to divide equally among the post-production staff in the film crew. In addition, he also gave a Christmas gift worth 20 thousand USD to the family of an employee in difficult circumstances.

Keanu’s younger sister has leukemia. So he used all the money he earned to treat his sister. In addition, he is also the most enthusiastic anonymous sponsor of charity funds supporting cancer patients.

If you happen to see Keanu on the street, many people probably won’t recognize the shaggy, bearded man in front of them as a famous Hollywood star. 

Possessing enormous assets, he chooses a simple lifestyle, without a house or car, and instead regularly uses public transportation such as the subway. 

As for Keanu, he has no concept between rich and poor. Encountering homeless people on the street, the actor will not hesitate to shake their hands, ask questions and chat just like friends.

It is because of Keanu’s humane lifestyle, despite adversity, that he has earned him the title “the kindest man on the planet”. Once said: “Pain only changes from one shape to another, it never ends.” 

He chose to heal the wounds in his heart through volunteer work, bringing happiness to everyone. Looking at Keanu, people feel like he has taken all the sadness of this world on himself, just like the photo a reporter accidentally took of the actor on the street.

 At that time, he looked like a lonely star in the heart of Hollywood’s glamour, fame, but constantly spreading the inspiration for a positive life worth appreciating.
