Keanu Reeves

This critically acclaimed actor has been in some huge Hollywood blockbusters, but that doesn’t mean he is from Hollywood. Keanu Reeves was born in Lebanon and has one of the most diverse ancestries we have ever seen. His mother is from England and his father has American, Native Hawaiian, Chinese and Portuguese ties; well, there is a little bit of American in there, then! Keanue Reeves moved around the world a lot when he was younger; from Sydney to Toronto and even a brief stint in New York. He spent a lot of his teenage years in Canada, so most people say that he is Canadian, although he is technically Lebanese. He has a Canadian passport, however, so he classes this as his nationality. His acting career started when he was just 9 years old but it wasn’t until the late 80s and early 90s before he got his movie roles. In 1999 the action movie “The Matrix” was released and this actor became a household name. Keanu Reeves is actually entitled to British citizenship and he also holds a US green card, which he uses to live in Manhattan.
