Happy Birthday Keanu Reeves! Today celebrates the John-Wick star’s 58th birthday. Ever since his emergence into the spotlight with his debut in the feature film Youngblood, Reeves has become a household name known for his incredible acting skills and charming personality. However, much of his legacy is accredited to his roles on the silver screen, but it would be a mistake to ignore another aspect of his success–the man’s unyielding and enduring generosity and kindness.
In a recent interview with Page Six at the premiere of John Wick: Chapter 4, Reeves admitted that he is not perfect. “Obviously, no one is perfect, but I appreciate the goodwill,” he said. Despite this admission, the world still sees Reeves as one of the most loved celebrities on the internet. From his hilarious cameo in Netflix’s Always Be My Maybe, to his adorable decision to ride the subway as opposed to taking a chauffeur, Reeves is truly social media’s sweetheart.
In addition to being a beloved celebrity, Reeves is also known for his philanthropic efforts. He has donated millions of dollars to cancer research, a cause close to his heart after his sister Kim was diagnosed with blood cancer in 1991. Reeves took a pause on his career to help take care of her and has continued to give back ever since. He has also founded a private foundation that supports children’s hospitals and cancer research, and he prefers to keep his name out of the spotlight when it comes to his charitable work.
Reeves’ kind and gracious nature has endeared him to fans around the world. Whether he’s giving up his seat on a plane, renting a van to help stranded passengers, or simply enjoying a sandwich on the streets of New York, the internet is always quick to celebrate his every move. It’s no wonder that Reeves is known as one of the nicest celebrities in Hollywood.
On this special day, we wish Keanu Reeves a very happy birthday and thank him for being the kindhearted and generous person that he is.
