Personal Life

Education

Reeves went to four different high schools, including the Etobicoke Schools of the Arts from which he was expelled. According to him, his expulsion was because he was "just a little too rambunctious and shot my mouth off once too often".

Career

He made his acting debut in an episode of the TV series Hanging' In in 1984. His first film roles were in Babes in ToylandAct of Vengeance, and Brotherhood of Justice.

Reeves starred in several teen dramas towards the end of the 1980s and had his breakthrough with adult roles between the period of 1991 to 1994. Some of the films he acted in at that time include My Own Private Idaho and Point Break.

The actor also starred in the popular action thriller Speed (1994) alongside Sandra Bullock. His rise to superstardom took place after he starred in The Matrix (1999). The movie has spawned three sequels, making him one of the most popular Hollywood stars.
