Keanu Reeves traveled miles to do his friend a favor.
Keanu Reeves participated in the series “Swedish Dicks” as a favor for a friend.
Actor Keanu Reeves is recognized for his leading roles in Hollywood’s top-grossing action films, such as The Matrix saga and John Wick . He has earned the title of one of the richest actors in the world, worth an estimated $380 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
On several occasions it has been of the different ways in which the actor helps those around him. They have been small actions such as giving up a seat to an elderly person on public transport, even showing up at the wedding of one of his fans, or even letting a child interview him as a game at the airport after a long flight.
Reeves has faced several difficult chapters in his life, be it losses and tough battles. However, none of this has slowed him down or detracted from his personhood. On the contrary, he shows that the world works from love, empathy and humility.
“Money means nothing to me. I have made a lot of money, but I want to enjoy life and not stress myself building my bank account. I make a lot of donations and maintain a simple lifestyle, mostly out of a suitcase in hotels. We all know that being healthy is much more important,.” Reeves said.
Recently it has been revealed the trips that the actor made to Scandinavia, as part of a favor to one of his friends.
This is a participation in the series called Swedish Dicks, where Reeves is an occasional secondary character. This was because one of his friends works in the production and the actor agreed to shoot some episodes, even though he traveled for long hours for two years.
Swedish Dicks is a comedy that revolves around Ingmar Andersson, a failed former stuntman (Peter Stormare) in the past, and an overly optimistic Swedish DJ (Johan Glans) who finds himself alienated in the digital world. Together they take off by forming the firm of private detectives, solving some of the strangest and wildest cases.
Reeves is a friend of the protagonist and creator, Peter Stormare, and far from charging him like the superstar he is, he simply takes payment from any guest star.
This is something that has stood out in the actor, his great nobility in the forums. When made The Matrix, the actor received around $14 million dollars, of which he gave $20 thousand to help a set designer who participated in the production and who was having a hard time because of the debts he had.
Keanu also sacrificed $2 million for the movie The Devils Advocate to ensure that the producers had enough money to pay Al Pacino, who was then demanding more than what was offered.
With The Replacements, the actor did the same thing again so that what corresponded to him would be used in the budget of the film and thus pay the legendary Gene Hackman.
