It was a time of heartbreak for the young Reeves, his father whisking through his life like a ghost unable to anchor itself. In 1994, after years of drug-induced debauchery, Samuel was arrested at the Hilo International Airport for attempting to sell heroin.In a 2000 Rolling Stone interview, Keanu expressed how he rarely revisits this phase: “Jesus, man. It’s full of pain and woe and f*cking loss and all that sh*t.” Keanu had been dabbling in acting in Canada, and when he turned 13, he was ready to do two things: leave his absentee father behind, and shoot for the stars with his career. Facing 10 years, he was released in 1996 on parole. By 1986, Keanu had acted in several stage plays and made-for-TV movies in Canada.At 22, Reeves came to Hollywood, and slept on his former stepfather's couch until he moved on to his own apartment.
