Keanu Reeves Net Worth
According To Uswhispers Keanu Reeves has a net worth of $380 million as an actor, singer, producer, and philanthropist. He has appeared in dozens of films throughout the years, some of which have grossed billions of dollars at the box office. He is possibly most remembered for his roles in The Matrix and John Wick.
Keanu On September 2, 1964, Charles Reeves was born in Beirut, Lebanon. His father Samuel is from Hawaii, while his mother Patricia is from Essex, England. While working as a costume designer in Beirut, Reeves' mother met his father. After his father abandoned the family when he was three years old, he spent much of his early life globetrotting with his mother, eventually settling in Toronto and becoming Canadian citizens in 1971. Reeves' education was hampered by dyslexia. He got kicked out of a number of high schools.
Reeves began his career in tiny appearances on Canadian television, commercials, and stage performances before making his big screen debut in 1986's Youngblood. Following that, he landed a number of co-starring roles, including a larger part in the critically praised River's Edge. Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, released in 1989, was an unexpected box office hit for Reeves.
After Will Smith turned down the role of Neo in The Matrix, Keanu secured the job. His first compensation was set at $10 million. He was also awarded a piece of the backend, which resulted in total earnings of $35 million for the first film, thanks to the film's unexpected success. After inflation, that equates to roughly $53 million. Warner Bros. announced the fourth Matrix instalment in August 2019.
Keanu's backend bonuses would eventually make him the highest-paid actor of all time for a single franchise, thanks to DVD sales (The Matrix was one of the best-selling DVDs of all time) and the massive box office success of the second and third films.
