'Point Break' co-star Keanu Reeves remembers Patrick Swayze

Posted on

Keanu Reeves shared some memories with People.com about his Point Break co-star, Patrick Swayze, who died Monday after a battle with pancreatic cancer. “There was some sky diving sequences in this film we did together and as filming was going on it came to be that Patrick was jumping out of airplanes all the time,” Reeves told People, referring to the 1991 movie they did together. “I think he had over 30 jumps during the course of filming and so the production served him with a cease and desist, which he listened to until they got to Hawaii.”

“He was a beautiful person, an artist,” Reeves added. ” Patrick, he just wanted to experience life and for his work he wanted to take the opportunity of the film and it gave him that sense….He lived life to the fullest.”
