Keanu is most definitely an introvert.

A lot of celebrities are bragging about their noble deeds and flexing their accomplishments, but not Keanu. If you don’t know him, you most certainly wouldn’t think of him as a superstar. He gives his money to the people in need and keeps it low.

Keanu has never been married. Allegedly, he doesn’t have a girlfriend, probably because of the trauma from the past. He was dating Jennifer Syme back in 1998. However, after the couple went through the tragic experience of a stillborn baby, they didn’t make it together. In 2001, Keanu’s ex-girlfriend died in a horrible car crash in Los-Angeles, which must’ve hit Keanu too hard.

Keeping a low-profile.

Keanu Reeves runs a private organization that funds children’s hospitals and aids cancer research. The actor encountered cancer in his life, as one of his beloved sisters was diagnosed with leukaemia in the 1990s. Luckily, the girl managed to win the fight with the disease and achieved remission. Keanu comments on his foundation:

I don’t like to attach my name to it, I just let the foundation do what it does.

As a former ice-hockey goalkeeper, nicknamed “The Wall”, Keanu feels empathy for professional players who got traumatized. Hence, the actor donates to Spinal Cord Opportunities for Rehabilitation Endowment, an organization founded after a UCLA hockey player’s spinal cord was crushed during the game.

Keanu gave up on building a family.

Adding to his personality, Keanu Reeves celebrated his 50th at home only with his sisters. Moreover, he stated that it’s too late for him to build a family:

It’s too late. It’s over…I’m 52. I’m not going to have any kids.

Everybody would agree that Keanu Reeves is a wonderful, noble, and kind of sad person. Although he has many happy things in his life like his love to motorcycles and dogs, Keanu surely has some pain in his heart. Maybe it is the beautiful harmony inside him that balances good and bad in his life?
