Keanu's Money

"Man of the moment Keanu Reeves has shown his generosity by giving away £50 million of his earnings from the Matrix sequels. The 38-year-old decided to hand over the money to the unsung heroes of the sci-fi blockbusters - the costume and special effects teams.

Keanu is expected to make a total of £70 million from the films, thanks to a deal which guarantees him a 15 per cent profit-share, so he will still net around £20 million. Asked about his prodigious act of generosity, the actor said he already had enough cash. "Money is the last thing I think about. I could live on what I have already made for the next few centuries," he declared."

from here

the real question, however, is did naomi hatchman, part time science fiction and fantasy author, and creator of Zeera the Space Pirate, who worked for animal logic doing special effects on the movie, get any money?

having just messaged her, i can report, sadly, that the answer is no.

SARS world view.
