When we fall in love with a movie character, it’s because of a job well done on the part of the actor or actress playing them. However, there’s no telling how that actor or actress is in real life because they get paid to work as the polite, selfless characters that we’re so drawn to. The good news is that there are a whole lot of actors and actresses who are as heroic in real life as they are in the movies that we enjoy watching them in.
It’s pretty heartwarming to know that some of our favorite celebrities are amazing people even when there’s no one to judge them – when there aren’t any reporters around them who might help them with their publicity. Often, these people go out of their way just to help someone out. Here are some celebrities who are known to be exceptionally good people in real life, and although it’s difficult to confirm these stories since they are word of mouth from Reddit users, positive chatter never arises without good reason.
Often considered one of the best people alive, Keanu Reeves had to be on the top of our list. For someone so successful with his acting career, Keanu had every opportunity to act all haughty in real life. Instead, he chose a more humble route, and that did everything to win the heart of every person he met. He has been the talk of town quite often especially by women who claimed to have gone out on nice dates with him (he must be a total gentleman!). He’s known to have given an extremely large chunk of his earnings from the impossibly popular Matrix movies to the people who helped with its production while expecting nothing in return. He’s known to be really humble and polite wherever he goes, and we’re glad the person we grew up knowing as Neo, and now know as John Wick, is as much of a hero in real life as he is in his movies.
Steve is known to be exceptionally cheerful and talks to everyone no matter who they are as though he’s known them for a really long time. He’s been spotted helping a person push their truck onto a parking lot and then giving them money for gas – and let’s admit, that’s something most of us would only do for our best friends. Another story about this man’s kindness is how he pulled over to help a person who had fallen off their wheelchair. All in all, this man who achieved fame through movies like A Perfect Getaway and The Crossing, and most importantly War for the Planet of the Apes, is a kind-hearted fellow in real life and will always be remembered as such.
Dwayne’s popular for his charismatic personality and charm. He’s pretty great in movies, but you’ll be pleased to know that he’s a down-to-earth person who doesn’t have any problems mingling with other people whatsoever. According to one person, Dwayne and his cousin spent an entire day fishing with these strangers and the whole day went amazingly fun! Dwayne, also known as The Rock back in his wrestling days, also brought lunch for everyone which lightened things up even further. Dwayne is famous for movies like Baywatch and The Fast and the Furious series. He’s made a huge success out of his career, and he’s busy being a good person when he’s not on screen.
You might not have been expecting Miley’s name to pop up in this list, but she’s reportedly super nice when it comes to mingling with the crowd and just being a regular person. She was once with a crowd among other celebrities. While most celebrities made it more than obvious that they weren’t interested in interacting with the fans, Miley went out of her way to make sure that the audience had an amazing time by making small talk and sharing jokes. It might not seem like much, but for a celebrity, accommodating fans all the time can be extremely tiresome and the fact that Miley didn’t shy away says a lot about her.
A simple kind act can humanize our favorite celebs, and we’re glad these stars, among others, are kind-hearted despite their fame.
