An enormous a part of Keanu Reeves seeing a serious profession resurgence is the tales of the actor’s kindness and humility which have been a part of the movie trade for so long as he has been working. In a career that appears to foster narcissism and self-importance, followers are continuously stunned by tales of Reeves being a ray of sunshine to anybody who enters his orbit. In a latest interview, Jeremy Fry, who acted as a stunt double for the actor in all three John Wick movies, confirmed that Reeves is simply as good because the tales make him out to be.
“He’s a giver, he’s selfless, he works tirelessly. Each good factor you’ve got heard about him is 110% true. He goes, “Hey, how would you wish to go to Laguna Seca?” and when Keanu Reeves asks you in the event you wanna go just about anyplace, you say sure. Seems he had rented Laguna Seca, which is a really well-known well-liked racetrack in California, and he rented it for 2 days, personal rental, there have been about eighty of his buddies and other people he knew. There have been celebrities there, individuals from completely different industries there, an enormous cross-section of individuals. He put us up in native accommodations, he catered breakfast, lunch, dinners. That was a really particular time for me for a lot of completely different causes.”
There’s a sure irony in the truth that the actor most well-known for brutally eliminating armies of henchmen throughout three John Wick motion pictures and destroying armies of Agent Smiths in The Matrix collection is definitely one of many nicest guys in Hollywood. It appears Reeves in actual life is nearer to his character from Invoice and Ted than John Wick.
Nevertheless, it’s not solely the actor’s niceness that’s trigger for celebration amongst followers but additionally his willingness to do his personal stunts. Fry went on to disclose that Reeves does certainly love to do his personal stunts, however can be respectful sufficient of the stunt workforce to step apart and let the professionals take over if the director so decides.
“There was a shot the place we needed Keanu to slip up the digicam and we needed to…have the digicam come proper as much as him. And we labored with him for some time on that one, and it is a tough one [but] he nailed it. He did such job on that. It is at all times fascinating to me when actors wish to do their very own stunts… when you will have individuals who you need to use and you will not know that it isn’t them. ‘However Keanu, he fully will get that. He has by no means stated, “I wish to try this. I wish to do it.” He trusts Darren and [director Chad Stahelski] to make the most effective determination that they’ll and he is aware of that they may use him at any time when they really feel it is applicable and protected.”
Whereas a fourth John Wick film is presently within the works, Reeves will subsequent be seen within the third Invoice and Ted film, titled Invoice and Ted Face the Music, whose trailer needs to be dropping quickly. His information comes from Metro.
