Tales of Keanu Reeve's kindness are as legendary as the "Bill & Ted" actor himself. Professionally, he is notorious for taking pay cuts so film projects can afford to hire other big-name actors, and he reportedly funneled a portion of his "Matrix" money to the creative staff so they could continue working on the trilogy before the first movie hit theaters.
Personally, Reeves has been caught on camera giving up his NYC subway seat to a woman (yes, he rides the subway), and additional stories of his generosity to strangers can be found across the internet. The actor supports PETA, as well as a variety of cancer-related charities in honor of his sister Kim Reeves, who has battled leukemia for more than a decade. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo: Araya Diaz/Getty)
