Although Canadian actor Keanu Reeves has been active since the 1984, he had several movies under his belt before his finally hit the right spot. The 1988 movie Dangerous Liaisons, an historical drama, found success in the box office, garnering $34 million on a $14 million budget. Because Reeve starred in this film alongside other big names in the industry (Glenn Close, John Malkovich, Michelle Pfeiffer, Uma Thurman), it helped the young actor with his name and face recognition. The next year, he starred alongside Alex Winter and George Carlin in the cult classic Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure. The actor’s career exploded from that point forward, finding him starring in a wide number of highly grossing films. Perhaps his most famous roles to date has been the Matrix series of movies. Not only are these the highest grossing films Reeves has played in, they’re also among the most well-remembered and mimicked. Never married, Reeves is well known for his vast generosity. More than half of the money he earned from the Matrix films ($114 million) he gave to the makeup and special effects staff.
