Keanu Still Aching From The Matrix

KEANU REEVES is still nursing aches and pains from the first of THE MATRIX movies in 1999 - because he insisted on doing much of his own stuntwork. The actor accepts his knees will never be the same after they were beaten and bashed during kung-fu scenes, but some of his co-stars had it even worse. He recalls, "People broke things. CARRIE-ANNE MOSS hurt her leg, and HUGO WEAVING had to have a hole drilled into his hip to drain some fluid. "I was taking ice baths and massages and trying not to cry at night. I'm still kind of tired from it, though. I'm still recovering. "My stunt double told me I did more wire work than 90 per cent of the stuntmen in the business."
