Cheap: Keanu Reeves
We’re putting Keanu Reeves first because he’s the obvious one. Anyone who keeps up to date on the celebs knows that Keanu is probably the coolest, chillest guy in Hollywood. Even though he has a net worth of $350 million dollars, you wouldn’t know it. During an interview in 2003 Keanu warmed all of our hearts with this statement ‘Money is the last thing I think about.
I could live on what I have already made for the next few centuries.’ Even though he could afford many private jets, Keanu frequents the subway (and is gentlemanly about it, too). After The Matrix wrapped, Keanu took $80 million out of his $114 million salary and spread it around the makeup and effects crew.
He also likes to give back to charity, he started up a charity for cancer in 2009 but didn’t attach his name to it. He gave a down-on-his-luck set builder on The Matrix a $20,000 bonus. He casually takes a break on a park bench like the rest of us.
He graciously bought lunch for the whole crew on one of his films. He even helped a woman whose car had broken down, and drove 50 miles out of his way to make sure she got home safely. The point we’re trying to get across here is money or fame is no excuse for being a bad person. And Keanu Reeve’s is probably the best person ever. And immortal.
