This is Keanu Reeves - The One

Sandra Bullock shares her experience of Reeves and how the ones most broken from inside are the ones most willing to help others.

This is Keanu Reeves - The One

Keanu Reeves is known not only for his iconic roles in films like "The Matrix" and "John Wick," but also for his kind-hearted and humble nature, which is somewhat rare in Hollywood. He's also known for his philanthropic work, although he rarely talks about it. He runs a private foundation that funds children's hospitals and cancer research. Recently, Sandra Bullock told us just how he is an amazing human being:

Sandra said on Instagram "This is Keanu Reeves. He was abandoned by his father at 3 years old and grew up with 3 different stepfathers. He is dyslexic. His dream of becoming a hockey player was shattered by a serious accident. His daughter died at birth. His wife died in a car accident. His best friend, River Phoenix, died of an overdose. His sister battled leukemia.⁣ No bodyguards, no luxury houses. Keanu lives in an ordinary apartment and likes wandering around town and often seen riding a subway in NYC.⁣"

She went on to say that "In life, sometimes the ones most broken from inside are the ones most willing to help others. This man could buy everything, and instead every day he gets up and chooses one thing that cannot be bought: to be real. ⁣Keanu Reeves, The One ♥️"

You can see her IG post here. One amazing story about Keanu involves his earnings from the blockbuster "Matrix" series. Reportedly, Reeves gave away a significant portion of his profit-sharing deal for the sequels, which amounted to millions of dollars, to the special effects and makeup staff. He felt that they were the real heroes of the movie, who made the groundbreaking effects possible, and thus deserved a share of the profits.

Here are the top-10 movies according to us you should watch this year (or rewatch if you have already) starring this amazing man.

    6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
    Liz Abere

    Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone.

Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

    Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

    The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.
