What are the coolest things that rich people do? by Jack Tran

Answer by Jack Tran:

The actor Keanu Reeves

Boy does he live up to that!

Look at him munching on a simple sandwich sitting all alone on a public bench, not giving a damn about his status as an A-List Actor.

Even as Keanu Reeves rose through the ranks to become one of the top-paid actors in Hollywood, he preferred to live in rental houses and hotels. He’s one of the only Hollywood stars without a mansion.

He said: ‘I live in a flat, I have everything that I need at anytime, why choose an empty house?’

He gave away $35 million, which he earned from the Matrix sequels, to the special effects and makeup teams and this just shows he doesn't really care for the money. (Edit: There are some articles online that say he never wrote any cheque for his SFX team. But there is no tangible evidence as of now)

It is said that he gave up a lucrative role, reprising his character in Speed 2, just so that he could act in the lead role of a Canadian Stage production of HAMLET.

This picture taken in 1997 shows Keanu spending one morning of his life with a homeless man in Hollywood. He shared and talked with that man without even bothering about his status.

How many of us here would even spend our valuable time and energy with homeless people, if not for some charity or some social work program?

Watch this video shot of Keanu when he travelled in a subway. You will see Keanu giving up his seat for a woman.

After seeing all these examples from his life, one can't help but admire the way Keanu Reeves lives.
