If you ever wanted to have a friendly chat with Keanu Reeves, now is your chance. On Monday, the Hollywood megastar announced he would donate a 15-minute zoom chat to a lucky fan who wants to bid on the opportunity. All money raised goes directly to Shine for Camp, an initiative of Idaho-based children’s cancer-fighting nonprofit Camp Rainbow Gold.
No bids have been placed for the auction as of now, although the nonprofit is worth $ 10,000. If you are interested in making the bid real, you can do so here on the auction website.
“Bill & Ted. Speed. Matrix. John Wick. You know him. You love him,” the auction description says. “This is truly priceless, and now you have the chance to Zoom with him from home! Get your questions ready and spend 15-minutes with actor, director, producer and musician, Keanu Reeves.”
Like almost anything, there is the involvement of some conditions. In this case, the auction says that the zoom cast should take place during the week of July 6, when both the auction winner and Reeves agree. The restrictions on the list say, “Camp Rainbow Gold and/or celebrity have the right to cancel a call if there is intimidation or misconduct.” Also, “Non-transferable, no returns or exchange, unavailable for resale and no cash value.”
Reeves was filming his role in Matrix 4, before it being discontinued by COVID-19, which is now delayed from the May 2021 slot to April 1, 2022. Reeves was on the news recently after his John Wick stunt double Jeremy Fry said this statement for being just as amazing as most people believe.
“He’s a giver, he’s selfless, he works tirelessly,” Fry shared earlier this month. “Every good thing that you’ve heard about him is 110% true.”
Fry went on to describe Reeves as often self-critical because it was important to him to get the stunts right. During the filming of John Wick 2, Fry and Reeves fell in love with motorcycles. Fry revealed, he asked if I wanted to go to Laguna Seca. And when Keanu Reeves asks if you want to go anywhere, you say yes.
“He rented Laguna Seca, California’s most famous racetrack for two days, private hire, about eighty of his other friends were there. There were celebrities, people from different industries, a big cross-section of people. He then put us in local hotels and served breakfast, lunch and dinner. It was indeed a very special time for me for so many different reasons.” he recalled.
