“Despite the tragedies, the virtuous man can shine… “

“At 3 years old my father abandoned me, I had to change 4 schools because of my dyslexia and in the end I did not graduate. At 23, I lost my best friend, River Phoenix, to an overdose. In 1998 I met the only girl I ever loved. We were expecting a baby girl but at the eighth month she had to have an abortion. 18 months later she died in a car accident. Since then I have avoided serious relationships. My sister is suffering from leukemia and I donated 70% of my Matrix compensation to research. I don’t have a supervilla, I don’t have bodyguards and I don’t dress in boutiques. I still take the metro and I like it a lot.

Because in the end I believe that, despite the tragedies, the virtuous man can shine. No matter what happens in your life, it’s always worth living.”
