Happy BirthdaySeptember 2, 1964
Keanu Reeves was born in Beirut, Lebanon, on September 2, 1964. Reeves was born into a family with a rich variety of heritage, as his mother was English and his father was of Hawaiian, Chinese, English and Portuguese ancestry. Reeves' parent's divorced when he was young, and he moved around the world frequently as his mother took several husbands throughout the course of his life. Reeve's interest in acting peaked when he was 15 and began as a production assistant for his Hollywood and Broadway director stepfather Paul Aaron. Reeves attended four high schools in five years, and never performed well academically due to his dyslexia. He was expelled from one school for being rambunctious and mouthy to his authorities and claimed to be more into athletics than anything else. Reeves had the dream of playing professional ice hockey and played well as a goalie in high school, but an injury ended his dreams. Eventually, Reeves enrolled in a secondary school that allowed him to act while getting an education, but he ultimately dropped out to pursue a career in acting.
Reeves's acting career began officially when he was 9 years old as he appeared in a small theater production called “Damn Yankees”, and over the following decade, he became more and more interested in an acting career, despite school and athletics tugging at his attention. Reeves moved to Los Angeles when he was 20 years old and made his screen acting debut in one episode of “Hangin' In”. Over the next several years, he worked hard to earn roles in commercials, on stages, and as correspondents for TV shows. In 1986, Reeves appeared in his first movie, called “Youngbloods”. After the movie, he picked up his first agent, who would work with him for decades to come. The 90's lead to Reeve's increasing in popularity, specifically for the younger generation. He won MTV's “Most Desirable Male” Award in 1992 and began his involvement in several Independent films later that year. “Speed” debuted in 1994 and was Reeve's first major hit, and it elevated him to a whole new level of fame. “The Matrix” was next; the trilogy starred Reeves and debuted in 1999. In early 2005, Reeves was recognized by the Hollywood Walk of Fame with a Star. Several hit films followed and Reeves continues to develop his work as an actor today.
Reeves is most well known for his starring role as Neo in “The Matrix” Trilogy. He's also well known for “Point Break”, “Speed”, “Dangerous Liaisons” and “Little Buddha”. He's known for the demeanor that he adapts for many of his roles, which is positively relaxed. He's also critically acclaimed for his versatility and ability to move easily between calm and collected to “loose cannon” status.
Reeves continues to live in the USA as he works on future projects that will debut in the coming years. He's currently filming a movie called, “The Neon Demon” and is in post-production for “The Bad Batch”.
