This guy reading on the subway is Keanu Reeves.


He is from a problematic family. His father was arrested when he was 12 for drug dealing and his mother was a stripper.

His family moved to Canada and there he had several step dads. He watched his girlfriend die. They were about to get married, and she died in a car accident. And also before that she had lost her baby.

Since then Keanu avoids* serious relationships and having kids. He’s one of the only Hollywood stars without a Mansion*. He said: “l live in a flat, I have everything that I need at anytime, why choose an empty house?” One of his best friends died by overdose, he was River Phoenix (Joaquin Phoenix’s brother). Almost in the same year Keanu’s father was arrested again. His younger sister had leukemia. Today she is cured, and he donated 10% of his gains from the movie Matrix to Hospitals that treat* leukemia...

In one of his birthdays, he got to a little candy shop and bought him a cake, and started eating alone. If a fan walked by he would talk to them and offer some of the cake. He doesn’t have bodyguards, and he doesn’t wear fancy* clothes. When they asked him about “Sad Keanu”, he replied: “You need to be happy to live, I don’t.

If you avoid doing something, you choose not to do it,
or you put yourself in a situation where you do not have to do it.
By borrowing from dozens of banks, he managed to avoid
giving any of them an overall picture of what he was up to...
He was always careful to avoid embarrassment.

A mansion is a very large house.
an eighteenth century mansion in Hampshire.

If you treat someone or something in a particular way,
you behave towards them or deal with them in that way.
Artie treated most women with indifference...
Police say they're treating it as a case of attempted murder...
She adored Paddy but he didn't treat her well...

When a doctor or nurse treats a patient or an illness,
he or she tries to make the patient well again.
Doctors treated her with aspirin...
The boy was treated for a minor head wound...
An experienced nurse treats all minor injuries

If you describe something as fancy, you mean that it is special, unusual,
or elaborate, for example because it has a lot of decoration.
It was packaged in a fancy plastic case with attractive graphics.
...fancy jewellery.

If you describe something as fancy, you mean that it is very expensive
or of very high quality, and you often dislike it because of this. (INFORMAL)

Perhaps other actors could take a lesson from him. He's had a lot of hardships in his life, but he's
also grounded. He doesn't believe he is better than everyone else simply because he is able to act.
I hope he does find happiness sone day. - 492 лайка.
