Equipped with dashing good looks and seasoned acting prowess, Keanu Charles Reevesis well known for his versatile performances. Whether it be portraying a romantic boy next door character or jumping buildings as an action hero, Reeves is a certified Hollywood superstar. Born September 2, 1964 under the Virgo sign, this Canadian heartthrob possesses a creative and analytical mind which were vital in hits such as Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, Speed, and the science fiction-action trilogy The Matrix.
Reeves was raised in Beirut, Lebanon by his costume designer mother Patricia Bond and geologist father Samuel Nowlin Reeves, Jr. His father abandoned the family when he was three years old, which made him closer to her mom. Virgo is very emotional especially towards his family. To date, he has never spoken about her father and has never tried to reach out to him. He credits his mother as an integral part of his success and continues to shower her with love and respect.
At nine years old, Reeves displayed extreme interest with theater acting. He appeared in various theater productions like Damn Yankees and Romeo and Juliet. CBC Television talent scouts discovered his natural acting skills and casted him in a comedy series entitled Hangin' In. Aside from TV, he appeared in many commercials like Coca-Cola. Because Virgo is a natural charmer who is conscious about his looks, Keanu was able to maintain his physical beauty during his prime.
Reeves shared a long term relationship with Jennifer Syme, who gave birth to a stillborn daughter named Ava Archer Syme-Reeves in 1999. On 2009, Jennifer died in a car crash after partying in a Los Angeles club.
During the peak of his career, Keanu has been romantically linked to many of his leading ladies. Upon filming the hit flick Speed with Sandra Bullock, rumors circulated that the two developed a romantic relationship. Because Virgo is the type that gives flowers and open doors, Bullock was said to have fallen in love with him easily. Although both denied the rumors, their on screen compatibility made the movie a classic hit.
