No one will argue that Keanu Reeves is one of the most beloved and unusual representatives of Hollywood. The actor constantly creates new reasons to admire himself, doing noble or just nice things. One of the latest news that touched the audience around the world was the arrival of Reeves at the Oscars 2020 ceremony with his mother, 76-year-old Patricia Taylor.
Pictures of this cute couple, taken at the ceremony by professional photographers and amateurs, literally flooded the Internet and gave Keanu a new reason to admire. Many were surprised that the actor came to the event with his mother, and not with his fiancee, Alexandra Grant.
Someone even tactlessly compared the 47-year-old chosen star with his mother, who is 30 years older, and this comparison was not in favor of Grant. In fact, you have to give Patricia Taylor her due — for her age, a woman looks just fine. What do we know about the mother of the most humane Hollywood star?

Patricia has never felt a special craving for raising children — she herself admitted that she was not an exemplary mother. "Well, what a mother I am! I just watched my children grow up from the outside, " she still likes to repeat in an interview with journalists. When Reeves was three years old, his father left the family. The actor has never communicated with him, as he believes that he betrayed the family, exchanging it for drugs and dubious companies.In 1966, Patricia and her children moved to Australia, where she found her new vocation-she became a costume designer. But the restless nature of this woman did not allow her to sit still and soon the family moves to New York. There, Patricia meets director Paul Aron and marries him in 1969.
The family emigrates to Canada, but a long-term happy marriage did not work out — in 1979, Patricia divorced Aron. Failures on the personal front did not prevent Patricia from developing in her profession and very soon she became one of the most famous costume designers in the Canada. A woman creates costumes for movies, television shows and even for famous rock bands.
In 1976, Patricia gets married for the third time. With the new chosen one, rock promoter Robert Miller, the woman lived for four years, having given birth to a daughter Karina in marriage. In 1980, the marriage broke up, but the woman soon finds a new life partner. It was the stylist Jack Bond, with whom Patricia lived the longest, until 1994. It is easy to guess that this marriage ended in divorce.The turbulent personal life of her mother and the almost complete lack of attention on her part could not but affect Keanu. At the age of 17, he dropped out of school and left home to his girlfriend Pat. For some time, the future Neo took on any job, starting from sharpening skates for the local hockey team and ending with mowing lawns and bushes. In parallel, Keanu mastered the basics of acting, which soon became very useful to him.
