20 Keanu Reeves Quotes — These Could Give You A Different Perspective On Life


Although Keanu Reeves started off his movie career playing roles as lovable goofballs and slackers (Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Parenthood, etc.), he’s actually a pretty deep and introspective person who seems to have a unique outlook on life.

And has this guy had a career resurgence, or what? Reeves is more popular than ever right now due to the success of the John Wick movies, and it’s been announced that there are new Bill & Ted and The Matrix movies in the works.

But back to the man himself, the real-life Keanu Reeves. Let’s take a look at 20 quotes from Reeves, who is, by all accounts, extremely generous and humble in his everyday life.
