He is known for his humble and kind nature and he always treats his co-workers and stunt performers in the best way possible.
Keanu Reeves, "The Matrix" star, is world-renowned for being a generous and kind human being. His stories of interacting with his fans and doing charity for cancer research instill hope in the hearts of many. Adding to this list is his recent grand gesture for his stunt performers on the sets of "John Wick: 4." According to an interview published in The New York Times on Wednesday, the celebrity designed personalized T-shirts for stunt performers that displayed the number of times they had to perform their "death" scene in multiple takes of a fight sequence.
According to Scott Rogers, the film's stunt coordinator, one scene involved 35 stunt performers, some of whom had to enact over 20 "deaths." The scene was shot on the numerous steps leading to the Sacré-Coeur Basilica in Paris, and the physical combat on the steps likely took a toll on both Keanu Reeves and the stunt performers. Jeremy Marinas, the fight coordinator, also credited Reeves for the physically demanding scene. He said, "We all know how hard it is just to walk up stairs when we don’t want to."

Directed by Chad Stahelski, "John Wick: Chapter 4" was released in theaters last week. Moreover, it is not the first time that the incredibly generous actor has shown appreciation to the movie's stunt crew. In 2021, at a wrap dinner in Paris, he gifted each member of the "John Wick: Chapter 4" stunt team with personalized Rolex Submariner watches, reported PEOPLE. Reeves gifted watches to Bruce Concepcion, Jeremy Marinas, Dave Camarillo, and Li Qiang, and each watch's interior was engraved with personal messages to each individual from the actor.
In his Instagram stories, Marinas shared a glimpse of the watches, labeling it as the "best wrap gift ever." He also disclosed that his watch was engraved with "The John Wick Five" and the message, "Jeremy Thank You Keanu JW4 2021." Similarly, Concepcion shared an image of his Rolex on his Instagram stories and expressed his gratitude by writing, "Got that new new thank you bro KR."

His generosity does not just end with the people he works with. In August 2022, he showed up at the wedding reception of his fans. James and Nikki Roadnight got married in August 2022, in Northamptonshire, England, and Reeves showed up to give them wishes. Nikki said, "He was very friendly and said he would [come] later on. He didn’t know if he would or not but it was cool that my husband had spoken to him!" While chilling in the bar of the Fawsley Hall Hotel & Spa, the 57-year-old actor was spotted by the groom, who then invited him to the wedding celebration. An hour later, a staff member from the hotel informed the bride that a "very special guest" was waiting outside and wished to talk to her.
The bride said, "I went to say hi and introduce myself, and I offered him a drink but he declined that and said he'd just had a long flight so wouldn't stay long but he was so kind and friendly and congratulated us on our wedding."
