Via: Keanu Reeves Gives £50 Million to Unsung Heroes of ‘Matrix’

Man of the moment Keanu Reeves has shown his generosity by giving away £50 million of his earnings from the Matrix sequels. 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.

Keanu is expected to make a total of £70 million from the films, thanks to a deal which guarantees him a 15 per cent profit-share, so he will still net around £20 million. Asked about his prodigious act of generosity, the actor said he already had enough cash. “Money is the last thing I think about. I could live on what I have already made for the next few centuries,” he declared.

And it’s not the first time the Beirut-born star has shown his jaw-dropping benevolence. While shooting the films in Australia he amazed the team of stuntmen by giving them each a £6,000 Harley Davidson motorcycle. And the actor, whose sister has leukaemia, has also channelled millions into cancer research.

His gift to the Matrix series’ 29 behind-the-scenes whiz-kids will see each of them receiving £1.75 million.

On dira ce qu’on voudra, on a beau avoir des tonnes d’argent, donner £50,000,000.00 sur £70,000,000.00 est absolument incroyable. On lui souhaite de ne jamais manquer d’argent par la suite! Et que dire des personnes qui recoivent…. une legere augmentation de salaire peut-etre? 😉
