It's a cliche that money doesn't buy you happiness, but it does buy you the freedom to live your life the way you want. Knock on wood, I've been very fortunate: I've been able to earn a really good living and start a charity foundation, which is nice.

A very candid interview, nice to see some truth that is not too intimate.

Do you know about this foundation he says he has? I cannot find it listed in any of the non-profit directories. Is his saying he has one for show or is there truth?

He said his foundation has to do with healthcare, education-and then something about the rain forest.

Thanks truthfinder. I read or heard that, but do you know what the foundation is called? Does he accept donations? Is it merely a tax write off since he has no dependents?

Could be something to do with what he did to his house, converting it for his sisters healthcare. Just a guess, will look about.

His sister Kim does not live with him. That article stating he had turned his house into a hospital for her was untrue.
His foundation has nothing to do with his house. His house is owned by a trust, just like most celebrities. His foundation is an actual charity foundation that donates to various charities - cancer research, education, etc.

I kind of agree I know a little about this trust thing my daughter used to study music contract laws . Must of the home are own by the companys shall I say. Just encase the Celebrities don't hold up to their end of the deal. They need to get their money back.

K's sister lives in italy for the moment in the island of Capri'. It has a great climate and Italy's weather and people are a good environment combo for Kim.

No, a trust is owned by the celebrity via a company.

The house is owned by a "trust" rather than the individual for tax purposes.

It has nothing to do with whether or not the celebrity comes through with the money.

I believe you are thinking of Escrow. But even then the money is held in escrow until the sale goes through. There is no money to be gotten back.

Keanu's foundation is probably registered in Canada, since he remains a Canadian citizen.
