A True Story

Most people know me, but don’t know my story.<>

At the age of 3, I watched my father leave.<>

I attended four different high schools and struggled with dyslexia, making my education more challenging than it is for most.<>

Eventually I left high school without earning a diploma.<>

At the age of 23, my closest friend River Phoenix died of a drug overdose.<>

In 1998, I met Jennifer Syme.<>

We fell instantly in love and by 1999, Jennifer was pregnant with our daughter.<>

Sadly, after eight months, our child was born stillborn.<>

We were devastated by her death and it eventually ended our relationship.<>

18 months later, Jennifer died in a car accident.<>

Since then I avoid serious relationships and having kids.<>

My younger sister had lukemia. Today she is cured, and I donated 70% of my gains from the movie Matrix to Hospitals that treat leukemia.<>

I am one of the only Hollywood stars without a Mansion.<>

 I don’t have any bodyguards and do not wear fancy clothes.<>

And even though I’m worth $100 million, I still ride the subway and I love it!<>

So in the end, I think we can all pretty well agree that even in the face of tragedy, a stellar person can thrive.<>

No matter what’s going on in your life, you can overcome it! Life is worth living.<>
