From Hello! Magazine, regarding Keanu Reeves: The 38-year-old decided to hand over the money to the unsung heroes of the sci-fi blockbusters – the costume and special effects teams. So how much money did Neo give away? Well, seems he earned seventy million pounds (I’m too lazy to do the conversion) from the Matrix movies and has given away fifty million. He was quoted as saying, “Money is the last thing I think about. I could live on what I have already made for the next few centuries.”
That’s really refreshing. Of course, it’s much easier to say things like that when you have millions and millions. Even so, I think it’s a wonderful gesture.
