Keanu Reeves treats inner circle with getaway in Matrix: Resurrections’ San Francisco Premiere
Keanu Reeves is not new to generosity. Its down-to-earth nature has always been the talk of the town; his responses to interviews are always precise and very epiphanic; and he’s always candid about charitable giving. And it seems he doesn’t hesitate to shower his loved ones with unexpected gifts of appreciation and gratitude, either.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Keanu Reeves has decided to celebrate his comeback in his famous role as Neo in Lana Wachowski’s film. The matrix: resurrections, with all those around him included in his planned set of festivities. Leaving no one behind, Reeves invited all of his team and representatives, including his agents, directors and publicists, as well as his top industry insiders to the world premiere of The matrix: resurrections in San Francisco.
To make sure all of his friends are comforted and have the best experience, Reeves turned the trip into an all-expense-paid vacation, complete with hotel accommodations and a post-premiere brunch organized especially for the guests. He even took them all on a private jet to make sure his friends were having the best time.
Reeves isn’t the one to talk about his acts of gratitude. It was actually Chad Stahelski, Reeves’ friend and director of John wick films that confirmed Reeves’ grand gesture. Stahelski, walking the red carpet at the premiere, said:
He took a bunch of us here. He’s incredibly generous. In the audience tonight, there will be so many people who have helped him out, from his martial arts trainers and jiu-jitsu trainers to hair and makeup to his stunt team. He makes sure his friends and family are there. He’s epic. “
Stahelski is one of Reeves’ closest friends, who first coached and stunted the latter for the 1999 hit. The matrix, and eventually succeeded as a director on the John wick franchise. Reeves, staying true to his ways, never spoke of the gift he gave his friends, once again proving his modesty. The only thing he said in response,
“Yes, it’s great to be able to share our experiences and our lives together.”
Reeves had previously gifted Rolex submariners to the stunt team who had helped him to John wick 4. Reeves also donated seventy percent of the fees he took for The matrix: resurrections for charities. Even during manufacturing and post-production of The Matrix Reloaded and The matrix: revolutions, Reeves took a pay cut for the team in order to generate additional funds to complete the visual and special effects work on the sequel.
Keanu Reeves always finds a way to tell his friends how grateful he is to them for helping him train and prepare for the tough roles he has played in his career, especially in the action genre. His ways of showing his colleagues and friends such kindness never remain hidden even if he does not talk about it, as his relatives as well as his fans all over the world hold him in high regard as well.
