Beginning with minor roles on Canadian television, commercials, and stage productions, Reeves made his feature film debut in 1986 with Youngblood. He went on to have a number of co-starring roles, including a larger role in the critically acclaimed River’s Edge.
With the 1989 smash-hit Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Reeves achieved unexpected box office success, grossing more than $40 million dollars domestically. Reeves went on to star in a number of major and independent films, including the drama Point Break and the indie cult classic My Own Private Idaho.
Reeves rose to prominence after the success of his 1994 action film Speed, which earned two Academy Awards and total gross revenue of $350.5 million both internationally and domestically. Reeves went on to have even more success as the lead in The Matrix franchise, a trilogy of sci-fi action films that grossed $1.6 billion in total. His performance as Neo was well-received and praised, and the films were hugely successful.
In 2014, Reeves landed the title role in the action thriller “John Wick,” in which he played a retired hitman. The films were both critically acclaimed and box office smashes.
He went on to reprise his role in two more films. His John Wick film franchise has grossed over $500 million at the box office. After adjusting for inflation, Keanu’s films have grossed more than $4.6 billion at the global box office as of this writing.
Glasgow, Scotland hosted “KeanuCon,” Europe’s first Keanu Reeves film festival, in 2019. It took place on April 27th and 28th and featured nine of his films over the two days.
After Will Smith declined the role of Neo in The Matrix, Keanu stepped in. His starting salary was set to be $10 million. He was also given a portion of the backend, which resulted in total earnings of $35 million for the first film due to the film’s unexpected success. After inflation, that equates to around $53 million. Warner Bros. announced the fourth Matrix installment in August 2019.
With DVD sales (The Matrix was one of the best-selling DVDs of all time) and the enormous box office success of the second and third films, Keanu’s backend bonuses would eventually make him the highest-paid actor of all time for a single franchise. The second and third films earned Keanu at least $120 million in bonuses. As of this writing, his total earnings from The Matrix from all sources exceed $200 million.

In 2014, two stalkers broke into Keanu’s Hollywood Hills home. The first incident occurred on September 12, when he awoke to find a stalker in his library, telling him she was there to meet him. He dialed 911 after speaking calmly with her. Three days later, a second stalker broke into his house through an unlocked gate left by Reeves’ cleaners.
The stalker stripped naked and showered in his bathroom before swimming naked in his pool. Reeves was not at home at the time, but the cleaning crew called the cops, and the stalker was arrested.
