Until recently, Keanu Reeves’ life could be summed up in one simple word: pain. The Internet was filled with pictures and memes about how he sits alone in the park with a burger, and only wild birds were his company.
He even practically did not act in films and even thought about ending his career. The problem is that in his personal life, the Canadian actor suffered a crushing fiasco: in 1998, the actor met the love of his life, Jennifer Syme, David Lynch’s assistant.
A year later, the couple was waiting for the birth of their daughter, but the baby, who they wanted to call Ava-Archer, died without being born (due to a blood clot in the umbilical cord). Then Jennifer herself died: she got into a terrible car accident (she got behind the wheel drunk after a party at Marilyn Manson and did not buckle up).
Reeves’ fortune then exceeded 350 million dollars, he was the highest paid artist in Hollywood. But all this did not matter, because Keanu’s heart was torn to shreds. Around the same period, it became known that the actor’s sister Kim fell ill with leukemia.
The Hollywood star could withdraw and had the right to be angry with the whole world, but he acted differently – on the contrary. He began to spend abundantly what he earned on charity, help everyone he met, gave gifts to colleagues on the set (from make-up artists to handymen) and in every possible way demonstrated love for others. As a result, Reeves was known as the kindest Hollywood actor, even the meme “You are amazing!” appeared on the Internet. – after the philanthropic speech of the actor at the presentation of the video game Cyberpunk 2077, in which he also played. “No, you are amazing!”, – they answered him compliments. So now the good-natured and write on the Internet.
As a result, the universe rewarded Keanu’s humanity: he again began to get cool roles (The Matrix: Resurrection, John Wick, etc.) and, most importantly, found love. Since 2019, the artist has not hidden his relationship with the artist Alexandra Grant, whom he met back in the 2000s. A charming and natural gray-haired girl, who is nine years younger than Reeves, is perfect for him.

In the meantime, they are talking about the wedding, having gained a taste for life, Keanu decided to return to musical creativity. He assembled the band Dogstar, with whom he rehearsed and performed in the 90s, and recorded a full-length album. The band’s first album, Our Little Visionary, was released in 1996, and their second, Happy Ending, was released in 2000. Since then, the artist has not returned to the bass guitar. And now he has pleased everyone who is happy for him, and said that the new Dogstar album will be released very soon.
– This summer we will present new music, after which we will hold several concerts. As soon as everything is clarified, we will immediately share the details, ”the group’s message says. “There is so much to do, but rest assured, we are working on it and have put together a fantastic team to help us. We are also going to shoot a music video to support our first tune.
