Reeves is often cited as one of the most generous stars in Hollywood, in a recent incident he donated a big portion of his earning to the crew and behind-the-scenes personnel working on films such as The Matrix trilogy. If reports are to be believed some of his donations are as high as a staggering 80 million dollars. There have been several questions raised over his donations but none dared to raise a finger over his generous persona.
