Nine Keanu Reeves Facts and One Keanu Reeves Lie

with one comment

See if you can spot the fib!

1. He took a 90% pay cut on his salary for The Replacements so Gene Hackman could be cast.

2. Keanu has an abdominal scar from a motorcycle wreck in Topanga Canyon. Apparently, he was driving around at night with no headlights in what’s called a “demon ride,” when he crashed into the side of a mountain.

3. He played a former quarterback from Ohio State University in two movies: Point Break and The Replacements.

4. He is afraid of the dark.

5. He has a dual American/Canadian citizenship.

6. Because of his points-participation in The Matrix sequels ($20 million + 15% of gross), Keanu Reeves is the highest paid actor of all time.

7. He was briefly considered for the role of Superman, which would have created an amusing coincidence in the similarity of his name with Christopher Reeve and George Reeves.

8. He is immortal, and will never age.

9. His performance in the title role of Hamlet was praised by Roger Lewis at the Sunday Times, who called Keanu “one of the top three Hamlets I have seen, for a simple reason: he is Hamlet.”

10. He is a hundred feet tall, and has to be digitally shrunk to appear on screen with normal-sized actors.
