When I see pics of him on The Superficial I usually see him dressed pretty casual (old jeans and old t-shirt) and he's usually alone.

I don't think he's pretending. Supposedly he had a messed up childhood, and has donated a shit ton of his fortune over the years.

Was just going to say this; he has a history of generosity that you don't see often with movie stars...

Dude's got his heart in the right place.....

Yeah, I've always wondered if he was bipolar. I've heard things about him that makes you wonder.

From what I've read some places, dudes actually had it pretty rough.

I can think of some things other celebrities have said that are depressing for an entirely different reason.

He doesn't try to be something he's not. He's knows he's not the smartest dude and doesn't try to act like anything else. Sure I might not like all his movies but he seems like he'd be a cool dude to hang out with.

Keanu Reeves is actually VERY down to earth, for those who don't know about his history and assume he's like any other pompous celebrity.

-Yes, he had a very rough childhood.
-Dad left him when he was 3
-Mom was a showgirl
-Had 5 or 6 stepfathers
-Different high schools
-Dyslexia
-Wanted to play hockey, but his dream ended after an injury
-Dropped out of high school to act
-Only had one meaningful relationship, produced a stillborn baby
-Girlfriend died in car crash
-Never married
-Turns down most movie roles if they're too violent
-Donated a lot of his money to the crew behind The Matrix
-His best friend is his sister
-Sister is dying of cancer
-Donates money for cancer research

These facts are kind of what triggered an obsession with Keanu on Reddit and other places.

"When I'm dead, I'll probably only be remembered for playing Ted."

Well, it was his finest acting performance to date.

Much better than all the bullshit from Lindsey and Paris and Britney and all the other morons.
At least he's real, if not pleasant.

one of my buddies at my gym was one of the football players in The Replacements. I have seen his pictures he's brought in of when he was filming, and he has a ton of pics with him hanging out with Keanu.

He told me that Keanu is really quiet and a bit time chain smoker. He never saw him off film w/out a cigarette in his hand.

granted, this is quite some time ago.
