Keanu Reeves reveals secret hobby
The actor, known for his kind demeanor and charitable efforts, responded to a Reddit fan’s question about a fun fact that most people probably don’t know about him, writing, “For a long time in Los Angeles when I first moved there, when I was 20 years old, it was such a new world and so I saw some guys at a gas station once who had hockey equipment in their car. They said they were playing street hockey. I asked them if I could play and they agreed. I became involved in a street hockey game that took place every weekend for over 10 years, every weekend, red versus black. We would take holidays off and sometimes summers, but the game was going on for over 10 years. That was cool to be a part of. It was a cool thing to have happened. Made some friends.”
Playing with strangers

The fact that he was able to maintain this hobby for over a decade and even make friends through it showcases his ability to connect with others and enjoy the simple things in life.

You know, it really depends on the moment. Sometimes you have the time to hang out, and other times you don’t. But yeah, it’s always nice to say hi.” He also shared his love of stargazing and reminisced about his favorite places in Toronto, including a hamburger joint called Licks, the grade school he used to attend, and the Bloor Street Cinema.
