A large portion of Keanu Reeves net worth comes from his status as a much-loved Hollywood A-lister.

Speed, an action film starring Keanu Reeves that won two Academy Awards and grossed $350.5 million worldwide and in the United States, catapulted Reeves onto the A-list. Reeves’ career flourished even further when he starred in the critically acclaimed and commercially successful Matrix trilogy.
The films he starred in as Neo were huge box-office successes thanks to widespread acclaim for his performance.
Starring as the titular character and former assassin in the 2014 action movie “John Wick,” Reeves had a career renaissance. Both films received positive reviews and were commercial successes at the box office. Two more films with him in the same role followed.
He has earned almost $500 million from the John Wick film series. Keanu’s filmography has earned over $4.6 billion at the global box office as of this writing, after adjusting for inflation.

The film’s costume designer claims that Reeves put some of his own money into the series to guarantee that the cast and crew would return for the sequels.
