    With a name like "Keanu" you have to assume he's somewhat "flimsy" in Artie-speak. OTOH he seems comfortable at the range, so... go figure...

    I've heard that being a good guy in Hwood is considered a character flaw. I was just ragging on his weird name.

    "1. The Devil's Advocate: When making "The Devil's Advocate," Reeves agreed to take a big pay cut of a few million dollars (a few million dollars) so the producers could also afford to bring on Al Pacino. (He perhaps somewhat selfishly did have the fate of the movie itself in mind. One shudders to think of anyone else performing that climactic monologue other than Pacino. It wouldn't have quite the same zing with, say, Christopher Lambert in the role.)

    2. The Replacements: He did the same thing on "The Replacements," allowing producers to bring on board Gene Hackman by demanding less cash up front for himself. He actually took a 90% paycut.

    3. The Matrix: But the real generous side of Keanu (that doesn't have to do with giving millions to charity) came out when he was making his back-end deal for the two "Matrix" sequels.

    True, Reeves was paid $10 million up front to film the first "Matrix" and ended up earning $35 million total after the film became a huge hit. But still, when negotiating his profit-sharing deal for the two follow-up films, Reeves opted to hand over some of his points to the franchise's special effects and costume design teams. The total amount Reeves could have earned but chose to disburse to the crew instead comes, by some accounts, to over $75 million. He donated over $75 million to people he worked with because he thought they deserved it.

    And in one personal account on Reddit, he helped out a family in need.

    A family friend builds movie sets, doesn't design, is one of the poor dudes that just builds. Anyway, he worked on the set for the Matrix and Keanu heard about family trouble he was having and gave him a $20,000 Christmas bonus to help him out. He also was one of the only people on the set that genuinely wanted to know peoples names, would say hello and mean it, and would talk to people as they were his peers and not below him just because they were practically making nothing to build a set. I've never heard anyone say Keanu is douche, seems like the nicest person in Hollywood from a second hand experience.

    Also of note? Reeves gave the entire stunt team behind the "Matrix" sequels Harley Davidson motorcycles."

    Good flick. Too bad that movie execs think that shit like Ghostbusters is worth more advertising. Same kind of action as The Kingsmen.

    Keaunu Reeves may be a lot of things, but fruity isn't something I would agree with.

    If he wasn't such a nice guy, he would've used that as a target.

    Says he was considered for all those rolls, not that he turned them down.
