Keanu Reeves is Auctioning a One-On-One Zoom Call For Charity
Meanwhile, former “Entourage” actor Jeremy Piven is asking for $15,000 for a single 10-minute Zoom call.
Attention, Keanu Reeves superfans: The beloved star of the John Wick and The Matrix franchises is auctioning off a one-on-one Zoom call to one devoted fan, all to raise funds for a children’s cancer charity.
The Zoom call auction is being organized by Camp Rainbow Gold, an Idaho-based charity that provides camp experiences for kids who have been diagnosed with cancer.
The listing for the 15-minute chat, which is billed as “A Little One-on-One with Keanu,” had already reached bids of $18,600 as of June 18.
Bill & Ted. Speed. The Matrix. John Wick. You know him. You love him. This is truly priceless and now you have the chance to Zoom with him from home!
Get your questions ready and spend 15-minutes with actor, director, producer and musician, Keanu Reeves.
In August, Reeves returns in Bill & Ted: Face the Music, the third installment of the classic comedy movie series. Watch the new trailer here.
In slightly more depressing news, former Entourage actor Jeremy Piven is getting roasted for charging $15,000 for a single, 10-minute Zoom call, reports Decider, and it doesn’t appear to have anything to do with charity.
The actor is currently ranked on Cameo as the most expensive celebrity to have a Zoom chat with. He’s listed above former NFL player Brett Favre, who, at $5,000, is only a third of Piven’s price.
Twitter users scoffed at Piven’s pricey request as his Cameo page made its way around the internet. “I literally wouldn’t talk to Jeremy Piven for free,” one wrote.
“Who the hell would pay $15,000 to talk to Jeremy Piven? Find me that person!” a user added.
“Imagine spending $15,000 to talk to Jeremy Piven for 10 minutes. Look, if I wanted to talk to a short douchebag for 10 minutes I can do that for free just by going to Walmart and bumping into the wrong guy,” another tweeted.
Sounds like the kind of cutthroat deal that would have impressed super agent Ari Gold himself.
