Top Bloke Keanu Reeves Is Auctioning A One-To-One Zoom Call For Charity
Just a few years ago, Keanu Reeves had all but slipped into obscurity. Having suffered numerous personal tragedies, the actor retreated from the spotlight, his face only appearing in random paparazzi photos that showed him engaging with the homeless, eating alone, and sitting with a melancholic expression in public parks. But then John Wick rolled around and the private actor was suddenly everywhere, much to the delight of fans around the world. Reeves soon found himself not only as the face of one of the most successful action movies – one that has since spawned a franchise – but also something of a hot commodity in Hollywood. Fashion designers wanted him, as did Marvel studios. But even with all the fame, Reeves continues to be the golden child of Hollywood and he’s proved that yet again by auctioning off a one-to-one Zoom call to raise money for charity.
The prospect of getting on a video call with John Wick himself is a daunting one, but in saying that, we’d still jump at the chance. The 55-year-old actor is auctioning off the opportunity to do so in an effort to raise funds for Idaho children’s cancer charity, Camp Rainbow Gold.
Given the fan base Reeves has, this opportunity isn’t going to come cheap and it’s pretty much guaranteed that whoever wants to win this will need to reach deep into their pockets. But when the cause is a good one, surely that takes the edge off such an extravagant purchase.
The highest bidder will win 15 minutes one-on-one with The Matrix star, with the video call taking place at a mutually do-able time during the week of July 6. A description of the ’15 Minutes of Fame’ with Keanu Reeves’ experience reads: “Bill & Ted. Speed. The Matrix. John Wick. You know him. You love him.”
The description continues: “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.”
Currently, the highest bid sits at $16,100 USD, but it’s still early days in the bidding wars so it seems likely it’s only up from here. Bidding will close at 6pm GMT on Monday, June 22. To find out more about the opportunity to chat with Keanu Reeves and even place a bid, visit the website here.
