Keanu Reeves

Someone posted the following on facebook and I try to search the original version.

在地鐵上讀著報紙的人是基努·李維,沒錯,就是你知道的那個基努李維。

他的爸爸在他12歲的時候因為毒品交易被逮補,他的媽媽是舞孃,後來全家搬到加拿大並有過幾任繼父。在1999年,李維的女友珍妮佛·賽姆(Jennifer Syme)生下死胎,而在2001,正當他們兩人要幸福地準備要結婚的時候,基努李維親眼看到他心愛的女友賽姆在車禍中喪生,從此以後他一直逃避穩定的感情與生育問題!

他其中一位摯友River Phoenix (Joaquin Phoenix的兄弟)因為用藥過量死亡。幾乎在同年基努李維的生父又被逮捕。從小與基努·李維相依為命的妹妹Kim,不幸罹患了白血病。媒體常常拍到他陪伴著妹妹。1994年《捍衛戰警》走紅前夕,他都還睡在朋友家的地板上,成名開始賺錢以後,他捐出了大量的金錢幫助幫助治療白血病症的醫院。

有一年基努生日,獨自走進一間糖果店為自己買蛋糕吃,影迷經過跟他打招呼,他會親切地與影迷交談,並且送一些蛋糕給影迷。

在成名後的差不多20年間,他都過著浪子般的生活,他是少數好萊塢明星中,沒有豪宅的人,他說:「我住在公寓裡,隨時想要甚麼都有,為何還要一間空房子?」

當然,他沒有保鑣也不穿華服,當人們都在討論著〝憂傷的基努〞時,他回應:「你需要開開心心、光鮮亮麗的才能活下去,我不用。」

這就是基努·李維,慷慨、真誠、做自己,值得我們欣賞、喜歡跟學習!


This guy reading the newspaper on the subway is Keanu Reeves. He is from a problematic family. His father was arrested when he was 12 for drug dealing and his mother was a stripper.

His family moved to Canada and there he had several step dads. He watched his girlfriend die. They were about to get married, and she died in a car accident. And also before that she had lost her baby.

Since then Keanu avoids serious relationships and having kids. He’s one of the only Hollywood stars without a Mansion. He said: “l live in a flat, I have everything that I need at anytime, why choose an empty house?” One of his best friends died by overdose, he was River Phoenix (Joaquin Phoenix’s brother). Almost in the same year Keanu’s father was arrested again. His younger sister had leukemia. Today she is cured, and he donated 10% of his gains from the movie Matrix to Hospitals that treat leukemia.

In one of his birthdays, he got to a little candy shop and bought him a cake, and started eating alone. If a fan walked by he would talk to them and offer some of the cake. He doesn’t have bodyguards, and he doesn’t wear fancy clothes. When they asked him about “Sad Keanu”, he replied: “You need to be happy to live, I don’t.

Happy Cheer Up Keanu Day.
