Pensé que ya había hecho un post sobre Keanu, pero se ve que lo soñé(?)

Es uno de los actores que mejor me cae (protagonista en Matrix, mi película favorita), y más se sobre su persona, aún mejor me sigue cayendo.

Podría poner los hechos que hacen a Keanu una gran persona, actor, o lo que sea, pero la verdad me chupa un huevo.

A lo que quiero enfocar es a la capacidad de este tipo para salir adelante después de tener una vida TAN de mierda.

Acá una lista con los acontecimientos más trágicos de su vida:

  • His first name means "the coldness".
  • Hardcore Buddhist.
  • Dad abandoned the family when he was 3, never reconnected with him.
  • Mom was a showgirl.
  • Had a long string of stepfathers, constantly moving.
  • Different high schools.
  • Dyslexic.
  • Had a keen interest in hockey but the Olympic dream ended after an injury.
  • Dropped out of high school to become an actor.
  • His daughter died stillborn.
  • Girlfriend died in a car crash after being plied with drugs by Marilyn Manson.
  • His best friend is his sister...she's dying of leukemia.
  • His remaining money probably pays for her medical bills.
  • Never married.
  • His best friend (River Phoenix) died of...drugs?
  • Avoids most relationships.
  • Turns down big roles if he believes the character's too violent.
  • Gave $50 million to the crew of the Matrix.
  • Donates most of his money to charities for cancer research.
  • Took a 90% pay cut on his salary on The Replacements (2000) so Gene Hackman could be cast. Previously, he had deferred $2 million of his salary so that Al Pacino could be cast on The Devil's Advocate (1997).
  • Gives most of his earnings to charity and the backstage people who help on the set.
  • Is quite humble when he speaks of himself, quoted saying: "I'm a meathead, man. You've got smart people, and you've got dumb people. I just happen to be dumb." - Keanu
  • He owns a house in Qualicum Beach, Vancouver Island BC, Canada and is reported to have said "I like your chicken" to a employee at the local grocery store

Te Quiero Keanu! :3
