pre-fame facts

Can you imagine The Matrix without Neo? The movie wouldn’t be a cult hit if it weren’t for Keanu Reeves. While we all know him from the screen, much of his life before all the hype remains a mystery. Take a look at five things you didn’t know pre-fame Keanu Reeves.

His Babysitters Were Famous

Back in the day, Reeves’ mom Patricia Taylor was a British costume designer and actress with tons of connections in the biz. Since she got to work for huge stars like David Bowie, Reeves was always around celebrities like Dolly Parton. According to legend, even Alice Cooper babysat young Reeves!

He Was Booted From High School

Although Reeves is known for his rugged good looks and stellar acting skills, he wasn’t exactly the best student. Before he was famous, Reeves was a little too wild for high school and got kicked out of his performing arts school. “I was greasy and running around a lot,” Reeves revealed.

He’s Bomb At Hockey

Reeves is Canadian, so of course, he indulged in their favorite national sport: hockey. Apparently, he was pretty good at it too. He even dreamed of going pro someday, and his hockey buddies nicknamed him “The Wall.” Although he put this ambition on hold to pursue acting, he continued to play recreationally.

He Rocked It As A Musician

Believe it or not, this talented actor also shreds as a musician. In addition to acting, Reeves killed it as the bassist of the band Dogstar from the ’90s to the early 2000s. They even toured internationally and played the Glastonbury festival in England. Although Dogstar broke up, Reeves still rocked out with the band Becky.

He Doesn’t Care About Being Famous

Keanu Reeves definitely doesn’t let fame go to his head. Despite the success of earlier films such as Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Point Break, he didn’t even know he was famous until a fan offered to buy him a free ice cream.This Hollywood charmer is here to stay.
