There's no beating Reeves when it comes to compassion and empathy.
There are two types of celebrities—the kind that let fame get to their head and adopt "arrogance" as their middle name, and then there are celebrities that make use of their fame for good. Keanu Reeves is loved by many and it's all because he's one of the kindest actors to ever exist.
Recently, the 57-year-old surprised his stunt team on John Wick: Chapter 4 with individually personalized Rolex Submariner watches during a dinner in Paris on Saturday night after wrapping filming for the upcoming action film, reports PEOPLE.
Reeves got each watch engraved with a personal message for each person, from the actor himself. The crew of the stunt team — Bruce Concepcion, Jeremy Marinas, Dave Camarillo, and Li Qiang — posted images of their gifts from the actor and thanked him.
Jeremy Marinas shared a glimpse of the watches via his Instagram Stories, calling it the "best wrap gift ever" and revealing his watch read, "The John Wick Five" along with the message, "Jeremy Thank you Keanu JW4 2021."

Per HuffPost, each of those watches can go up to five figures, each.

To be absolutely honest, this is not the first time that the actor has proven he's got a heart made of gold. How many celebrities can you name who've gotten their mothers to walk the red carpet with them for an event? Well, Reeves has. He was accompanied by his mom at 92nd Academy Awards.
The John Wick star is humble and down to heart, and fans have nothing but nice things to say about him, but his life hasn't always been the easiest, and it all seemingly began from when his parents separated. He was just three years old at the time. When he was 13, his father completely abandoned them and a little later, he found out that his sister Kim had cancer. Being her primary caregiver at such a young age was exhausting, but he pushed through.
However, things only took a turn for the worse when he lost his dear friend River Phoenix to drugs.
After all of this pain and trauma, things seemed to be slightly better for him when he found Jennifer Syme, the love of his life. They were over the moon when they found out they were going to have a little daughter together and decided to call her Ava. Unfortunately, she was a stillborn, and it shattered both Reeves and Syme. She just couldn't get over the loss of her baby, and eventually, the two of them headed their separate ways.
A couple of years after their split, Reeves learned that Syme had died in an accident. For the longest time since then, Reeves was on his own, carrying around the weight of the world on his shoulders.
However, things seemed to look up when visual artist Alexandra Grant walked into his life. It was recently revealed that Grant and Reeves have been together for several years even though they made their relationship public only in November 2019. Honestly, it's really nice to see that absolutely wonderful smile on Reeve's face. He deserves to be happy, for the gem of a person that he is, isn't it?
