No stranger to adversity, Keanu is widely regarded as one of the kindest, most selfless actors in all of Hollywood, and with John Wick 4 set to release later this year, all eyes will soon once again be upon the global megastar.

Keanu is no stranger to rumors, and one widespread rumor doing the rounds as of late, is that he has a famous son named Dustin.

Who is Keanu Reeves?

He is a Canadian actor born in Beirut and raised in Toronto.

Keanu is a Hollywood actor who has appeared in some blockbuster hits and cult classics and has been active for five decades (the 80s, 90s, 2000s, 2010s, and 2020s) and is still going strong.

Keanu began his acting career in theatre before landing a few small parts in made-for-TV movies.

He made his movie debut in 1986, appearing in the sports drama ‘Youngblood’ alongside Rob Lowe and the late Patrick Swayze.

Keanu’s big break came in 1989, however, when he co-starred in the sci-fi comedy ‘Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure.’

Keanu would go on to appear in other movies and had a very hit-and-miss career in the early 1990s.

He did, however, appear in some smash hits and would go on to land some truly iconic roles.

What’s even more remarkable is the fact that he has constantly reinvented himself throughout his career.

Notable roles

Listing each role that Keanu has had over the decades would take us forever.

What we will do instead, then, is look at some of his most notable roles over the years.

In 1991 he once again appeared alongside Patrick Swayze, this time in a lead role in the action crime drama Point Break. In it, he played an FBI agent going undercover to infiltrate a gang of surfers/bank robbers. Critics loved the movie, which was directed by Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty).

Now an established leading man, Keanu would appear alongside Sandra Bullock and Dennis Hopper in 1994’s ‘Speed.’ In it, he played a cop stuck on a bus full of passengers rigged with explosives that would detonate if the bus dropped below 50mph. Again, critics and audiences loved the movie.

Following this, he had a few flops, but in 1997 he appeared alongside Al Pacino in ‘The Devil’s Advocate’ and received critical acclaim.

In 1999 however, Keanu’s career reached new heights when he played Neo in ‘The Matrix.’

The Matrix became one of the biggest blockbusters in movie history and spawned three sequels, graphic novels, video games, merchandise, and achieved a cult following.

After The Matrix, however, many believed that Keanu’s career had peaked.

He appeared in countless other movies, though none, not even the first two Matrix sequels, impressed critics or audiences.

For much of the late 2000s and early 2010s, Keanu had a quiet spell.

All that changed in 2014, however, thanks to John Wick.

In 2014, Keanu was not considered a young man anymore, so when he was cast as assassin John Wick, audiences scoffed.

As it turned out, though, he knocked the role out of the park.

The movie featured some amazing fight choreography, gun fights, firearms skills, and cinematography.

Keanu, who practiced martial arts in real life, looked terrific in his fight scenes and moved better than men more than two decades his junior.

The John Wick movie reinvented his career and, as yet, has spawned three sequels, and 1, possibly 2, spin-offs.

Personal life

Keanu has had a tough life by anybody’s standards.

He and his wife at the time lost a child to stillbirth, and shortly afterward, his wife sadly died in a traffic accident.

Keanu is a private person and is very grounded.

He doesn’t lead a lavish lifestyle, he wears regular clothes, lives in a regular apartment, and drives an ordinary car.

Much of his wealth he donates to charity or homeless people, and he can regularly be spotted chatting with homeless people or regular members of the public.

Keanu’s generosity knows no bounds as he has gone out of his way for other people, often taking pay cuts so the crew on the movies he’s working on can earn more.

He’s even rewarded members of the crew with lavish gifts such as motorcycles and has even paid off the mortgage of crew members’ homes.

He is currently in a relationship with Alexandra Grant, though there are rumors of a long-lost son.
