HAPPY 59TH BIRTHDAY: Keanu Reeves turns 59….
“I loved that film and how Kathryn Bigelow had this incredibly cool vision of the kind of world she wanted to create. There was this terrific pulp aspect to the story, about an FBI guy who learns to surf to catch the bad guys. That film portrayed surfing with so much beauty and the passion for riding waves.
“I’ve had so many people come up to me over the years who tell me how that film changed their lives and how they took up surfing or skydiving because of it. It reminds me of how much passion I have for motorcycles. I know exactly how they feel.”
Happy Birthday Keanu Reeves! Today celebrates the John-Wick star’s 58th birthday. Ever since his emergence into the spotlight with his debut in the feature film Youngblood, Reeves has become a household name known for his incredible acting skills and charming personality. However, much of his legacy is accredited to his roles on the silver screen, but it would be a mistake to ignore another aspect of his success–the man’s unyielding and enduring generosity and kindness.
Keanu Reeves was once dubbed the sexiest man alive by People magazine (retroactively for the year 1994, some 21 years after the event, if you’re interested). On the eve of his 56th birthday, on September 2, the star of Point Break, Speed and The Matrix films shares how he has changed, his love of motorbikes and his secret to staying fit.
