REEVES HAS HIS OWN CHARITABLE FOUNDATION

Reeves' foundation's primary aim seems to be to help fund cancer research and to give money to improve conditions in children's hospital wards.

Reeves sister Kim was diagnosed with leukemia in the 1990s, and she went into remission and recovered, but the experience sensitized the actor to the difficulties faced by sick children and their families.

REEVES IS PART NATIVE HAWAIIAN

Many may not know that Keanu Reeves was born in Beirut, Lebanon. The actor derives his exotic looks from his English, Chinese, Irish, Native Hawaiian, and Portuguese ancestry.

Reeves’ mother, Patricia Taylor, is English, and his Samuel Nowlin Reeves Jr., is an American. His first name means “cool breeze over the mountains” in Hawaiian, and he was named after his great-great-uncle Keaweaheulu.

Reeves first dream wasn't acting. He was a successful ice hockey goalie which earned him the nickname “The Wall,” and dreamed of playing hockey for Canada but had to give it up because of an injury. Hockey's loss was the world's gain.
