Bite the Bullet

"You'll just have to bite the bullet," Keanu Reeves was told one day on the set. "Yes," he replied, "but I don't have to eat the whole rifle!"

[Notwithstanding this remark, Keanu developed a reputation for hard work and dedication. During the production of The Matrix, he endured months of Kung Fu training -- while wearing a neck brace after a serious neck injury. And, for one component of the Superbrawl, the climactic fight in The Matrix Revolutions, Reeves and Hugo Weaving (Agent Smith) kicked, punched, and blocked their way through 72 takes before the Wachowski brothers were satisfied.]

["Keanu" means "cool breeze over the mountains" in Hawaiian.]
