JT’s carbon footprint
During a nationwide tour, Justin Timberlake paid a company to measure the carbon impact of his concerts in the cities where he played. He then paid to have trees and bushes planted in those cities to offset his carbon footprint.
Tom Cruise cares
After witnessing a hit-and-run accident, Cruise called the paramedics and stayed with the victim, following her to the emergency room and then paying the $7,000 bill when he learned she was uninsured. On another occasion, Cruise saved a boy from being crushed to death by a frenzied mob at one of his film premieres by reaching into the crowd and pulling him out.
Keanu Reeves shares
He gave $80 million of his Matrix salary away to the special-effects team and costume designers who worked on the trilogy, as he believes they are the ones who deserve all the credit. According to Reeves, “Money is the last thing I think about. I could live on what I’ve already made for the next few centuries.”
