The patron of perfection does the same.
According to a new report, Keanu Reeves donated most of his earnings from the original Matrix movie to cancer research.
Reeves, 57, reportedly paid $ 10 million in advance for the 1999 sci-fi film, and then made another $ 35 million after the film became a box office blockbuster.
According to the Lad Bible, the actor donated 70 percent of the money – $ 31.5 million – to a leukemia study.
The reason for this was that Reeve was close and dear to his heart, as his sister, Kim, had been battling the disease for eight years when she donated.
Kim was diagnosed with leukemia in 1991 and was out of treatment and out of treatment for ten years before entering remission in 2001.
Reeves Kim continued to fund research, even after his treatment, and even set up his own cancer fund.
The “Speed” star secretly formed a non-profit organization, which reportedly operated without any notice for years.
In an interview with the Ladies Home Journal in 2009, Reeves said, “I have a private foundation that has been around for five or six years and it helps with several children’s hospitals and cancer screening. For that, I just let the foundation do what it does.
Meanwhile, in 2020, Reeves put up a 15-minute Zoom Date auction with him, donating the money to the Summer Camp Rainbow Gold program for kids with cancer in Idaho.
The winning contestant paid more than $ 19,000 for a short date with the heart of Hollywood.
Unfortunately for the winning bidder, Reeves is out of the market. He has been meeting artist Alexandra Grant for several years.
The star also has a long-standing friendship with actress Winona Ryder after she co-starred with Dracula in the early 1990s.
The couple fell in love in the film and their protagonists got married. In November last year, Reeves said the couple may have been married in real life, as the priest held a screen wedding at the church.
