Most famous people like to let us know when they do something heroic or charitable, but not Keanu Reeves.

He's been endowing his private charitable organisation which funds cancer research and children's hospitals for over a decade, but has said that he prefers to let them get on with it rather than chatting about it too much.

"Even with all his fame and money, he's well known for being kind and down-to-earth, whether that's by helping strangers on public transport or by giving gifts to his film crews." - Film critic and HELLO! columnist James King

He's also incredibly generous in his recognition of the people who helped him become the star he is; Keanu famously gave away millions of his Matrix money to the trilogy's special effects and costume team, who contributed to it becoming one of the most successful franchises ever.

Film critic and HELLO! columnist James King says: "We all need to Be More Keanu. Even with all his fame and money, he's well known for being kind and down-to-earth, whether that's by helping strangers on public transport or by giving gifts to his film crews.

"Keanu's said many times how he was brought up learning about respect and politeness and it’s so refreshing to see him practising those things to this day. It's why everyone loves him!"
