|Interesting Factoids||name means: "cool breeze over mountains" - (in a baby book we found it just said "Hawaiian - breeze" - does this mean the name is picking up in popularity?)|

|Favorite Concert: The Ramones at the 'Salty Dog' in Buffalo, New York in 1987. "I drove with friends in my first car from Toronto, Canada to the venue."|
|Keanu shaved his head (and eyebrows!) for the Matrix (let's hope he doesn't have to do it again!)|
|Keanu's nickname is "The Wall" which stems from his hockey/goalie past|
|The huge scar running down Keanu's stomach, comes from a late night accident in Topanga Canyon in 1988. He was on a "demon ride" - riding at night without headlights - and he "ran into a mountain". Keanu broke ribs (and some teeth!) and ruptured his spleen. (In an article I read fairly recently, Keanu said he still has his spleen, and you can't buy it on ebay.)|
