Today is one of our favorite Hollywood Actor’s birthday, Keanu reeves.
One of Hollywood’s most loved star, Keanu Reeves turns a year older today. The actor has been entertaining the audience since 1984 and has gone on to deliver stunning performances in ever-green films like the ‘Matrix’ franchise, ‘Speed’, ‘John Wick’ franchise and others.
While the fourth installment of his popular sci-fi franchise ‘Matrix’ is all set to go on the floors soon, Reeves, who grabbed everyone’s attention when he walked the red carpet hand-in-hand with girlfriend Alexandra Grant, is widely known for his humble nature and professionalism.
While fans have flooded social media with adorable birthday wishes for their favorite actor, we take a look at lesser-known facts of the birthday boy here.
Reeves, who was raised in Toronto, had grown up playing hockey throughout his childhood and was a part of his school Hockey team as well.
The birthday boy used to introduce himself as Chuck Spadina, Page Templeton III and even K.C. Reeves in the early stage of his career as his agents wanted him to change his first name.
With several blockbusters to his name, Keanu Reeves is undoubtedly one of the best actors in the industry. he had nearly married his co-star Winona Ryder.
Not many know that the birthday boy has also published his own poetry in the form of a book which is titled as Ode to Happiness in 2011. Not only that but the book also contains drawings by painter Alexandra Grant.
Keanu Reeves has finally let the world know exactly how long he intends to play JOHN WICK. Since the 2014 action extravaganza brought Keanu Reeves back to the forefront of the pubic eye, two more increasingly popular John Wick movies have been released. With two more John Wick movies on the way, which will apparently shoot back to back in early 2021, the question of just how long this series will go has been something fans have been dying to know.
Every time John Wick thinks he’s out, they pull him back in. The man just can’t seem to retire to a life of honoring his late wife by being safe and happy. John Wick was suppose to be much tamer ,but the revenge montage it became instead has created a franchise of pure, exhilarating, gloriously choreographed action.
The first three films together have raked in over $600 million from fans just happy to see Reeves on the big screen, with all of them being written by Derek Kolstad and directed (the first was co-directed by David Leitch) by Chad Stahelski. That dream team will continue for JOHN WICK 4 and 5, but the fate of the franchise is unknown after that.
Reeves was asked how long he’d be willing to play John Wick. True to form, he responded, “As far as my legs can take me. As far as the audience wants to go.” In echoing the sentiment of Stahelski when he was previously asked a similar question, Reeves seems confident that they’ll keep going until they run out of stunts he can do or the audience gets sick of him doing them.
