One of my favourite actors, Keanu Reeves, used the power of the Internet to answer some questions on Sunday afternoon. He fielded questions from anyone on the web site Reddit. It’s not the first time a celebrity or famous person has done such a thing on Reddit but it was certainly one of the most honest and heartfelt sessions. Many were impressed by the genuine sincerity coming from Mr. Reeves. One person asked him why he chooses to live such a relatively simple life despite his fame and considerable wealth. His answer was direct and to the point:
“You know, I’ve been very fortunate in my life. Which I am grateful for. And I guess it’s just to my tastes to keep life as simple as I can.”
Keanu goes on to explain his love for hockey, his time in Toronto, what he likes to eat, and his memories of working with the late River Phoenix and Dennis Hopper. You can find all his answers here, just click on the “context” to find out what the actual question was. It was very refreshing to read what he had to say about a number of topics. I’ve always had a great deal of respect for the man and I will continue to do so.
