Keanu Reeves in New York subway: Some stars are simple

This guy reading the newspaper on the subway is Keanu Reeves.  And he is travelling in the New York subway just like other millions of commuters.  It seems that the New Yorkers either don’t care or are just acting cool.  However, he not just travels in public transport but is actually quite a gentleman.

The Matrix star has had a tough life:


  • His father was arrested when he was 12 for drug dealing and his mother was a stripper. His family moved to Canada and there he had several step dads.
  • He watched his girlfriend die. They were about to get married, and she died in a car accident. And also before that she had lost her baby. Since then Keanu avoids serious relationships and having kids.
  • One of his best friends died by overdose, he was River Phoenix (Joaquin Phoenix’s brother). Almost in the same year Keanu’s father was arrested again.  His younger sister had leukemia. Today she is cured, and he donated 70% of his gains from the movie Matrix to Hospitals that treat leukemia.

He lives a simple life.  On one of his birthdays, he went up to a little candy shop and bought a cake for himself and started enjoying it alone.  If a fan walked by he would talk to them and offer some of the cake.  He doesn’t have bodyguards, and he doesn’t wear fancy clothes.

This gentleman not just travels in the subway trains but actually gives up his seat to others!

Does he really avoid serious relationships and kids because of that?
