4. Who is your celebrity idol and why?
My celebrity idol would have to be Keanu Reeves. I know that is an odd choice, but in my opinion for a celebrity he is very generous and giving. He has had a lot of bad things happen in his life, but instead of going into depression he has given money to people who need it more than him. Also he lives a very simple life, rather than buying expensive cars he rides the subway.
