Today is the birthday of Keanu Reeves, the so-called “internet boyfriend” and one of the most mysterious and beloved Hollywood stars of today. Said emblem, characterized by the question mark, does not come from proven hermitic or hostile practices, but from what little is known about his personal life. Being Reeves one of the most generous and humble celebrities in the field, slowly – and thanks to a handful of statements – public opinion has been able to build the story of his life. If all is true, Keanu Reeves’ tragic life has been an obstacle that he has been able to overcome and that has shaped him to become one of the world’s favourite stars.
Internet boyfriend Keanu Reeves began his career in the 1980s and over the next ten years he built momentum to become the big star that he is today. It was several comedies, occasional drama and action films that positioned him in the public eye, but it was The Matrix that gave him worldwide recognition.
Ten years later, a photograph of him sitting alone on a park bench, eating what appears to be a burrito, went viral. From then on, Sad Keanu became a reality. A joke that turned him into a sad and lonely character; fans even gave a special day for it. However, although “the laughter was not lacking”, the reality is that throughout his life the actor has been the protagonist of several tragedies.
Probably the reason that he has been seen alone and without a partner is because of what happened in his relationship with Jennifer Syme. During early 2001 the couple buried their daughter born prematurely at eight months and the tragedy led to a subsequent separation. Eighteen months later Syme died in a car accident in the city of Los Angeles. The police report of the accident clarified that the actor’s ex-wife was going through a severe depression, according to the controlled medications they found inside the vehicle.
The tragedy forced Reeves to take a short break before filming the Matrix aftermath, but during that time his sister Kim relapsed into the conditions of leukaemia, a disease with which he has been diagnosed since 1991. He was close to support her in the difficult times brought by the disease, even though during the nineties she was also the victim of another loss.
And it is that in 1993 Reeves lost his friend River Phoenix, who died of an overdose outside a nightclub. The two met on the set of My Own Private Idaho and have become great personal friends ever since. Although the actor never declared anything concrete about it, it was several close friends who affirmed that the actor “carried great pain” that he was never in favour of expressing.
Perhaps an ingrained custom given that he also went through the abandonment of his father when he was very young. He was only three years old when his father decided to go out the door and never return. His now single mother had to move the family repeatedly and across various countries while raising her children. A troublesome situation for Keanu who has called himself dyslexic, which is why he was never a great student at any of the various schools he had to attend briefly between moves
In the middle of 2020, the now 57-year-old actor may not have in the garage of his house of millions of dollars, an Oscar or great recognitions of the industry, but he does boast of having an enviable collection of classic motorcycles, in which he is occasionally seen riding the streets of Los Angeles. However, when you visit New York City, it is simple enough to take the subway, eat on park benches, and dress as any average, middle-class New Yorker would.
