But I'd sleep in a ditch with him if he wasn't
This just in, apparently Keanu's filthy fucking rich.
Actually, isn't this the percentage he gave up to the effects and costume teams?
Not that I have interest in his money.
I'm all about the belly scar, the rock and roll, and the ass baby....

I think the general misconception is that he gave it all away. He didn't. What he did do, "was take PART of what I got in my contract and create a pool....."
I think that the more interesting thing about this publicity will be to see how it plays out in Hollywood.
Don't just love the fact that is making all this money and buys what, according to Hollywood standards, is a modest house! (Which looks like it needs a paint job.)
Ass, Rock and Roll, and belly scar just about covers it. But I am in it for Neo. How cool can one person be?
Well, he deserves every penny.
Holy shit that's a lot of moolah!
It is very cool that he gave away part of it - what we don't hear about is all the other times he gave a LOT (many millions) of it to cancer research. Just as we ALL are supposed to do, to give is supposed to be a selfless act, without publicity or acclaim. Of course when the press gets wind of it, it becomes known. He was upset that this was widely published. I guess most press just don't understand unconditional generosity. He obviously realizes there no way in the world he could spend all that money, so he does good deeds with it. Did I mention I love this man?
PS: I don't think the house is supposed to be painted - it's made of white concrete and stone, and is quite modest, considering. I'd love to wake up and see the view over that infinity pool. Or the views *inside* the house too. ;)
Good for him! He deserves what he got now, and he did not act cocky at all. And he desn't act like all big super-starry and everything. The man's humbleness blew me away. He doesn't have to give, yet, he just did.
Man! I feel like giving him the customary hug. *squeeze*
Well, obviously he needs all this money to buy fish-food for the koi-fish in his pond! They are terribly hungry fish, you know... they scare me a bit! Do you know the breed? They are quite large and have huge gaping mouths... What if they take a nibble of him!
Oh well, I'd still like him, even if he missed a few fingers ;-D
*knocking on wood*
shit thats allot of money but he's worth every penny of it. is there a picture of the house he bought online somewhere? i'm curious to see his modest digs...
kat, I think Keanuette's blog has one! :-)
Thanks! I went and looked. That's not too shabby. Christ, I can imagine what they'd call my house if they say that is modest...lol
After all the sacrifices, the pain, the continual dedication to the Matrix project throughout everything, and maintain that wonderful wit and charm, and still have some smiles yet! (between icebaths!, etc.)... Plus giving away a nice chunk of his earnings before-the-fact. Truly amazing and admirable. Ke deserves every cent and more. Coolness! and then some!
The Mirror newspaper has a better [fuller] pic of the house, but I can't scan it coz my scanner is shite!
