It’s about time one of the biggest Hollywood heartthrobs started dating again! Don’t get me wrong, being single is wonderful, but only if it makes you happy. Was Keanu Reeves happy all these years he stayed out of the dating scene? I certainly don’t know. But what I do know is that he’s happy now with a woman that seems great on so many levels. Meet Alexandra Grant, a 46-year-old silver fox with the warmest smile you’ve ever seen.
Let’s take a step back and remember the not-so-good old days when Keanu Reeves was a rising star and seemed to have a happy family in the making. It was year 1999 when he and his partner Jennifer Syme had a stillborn baby together. The couple broke up soon after that, unable to overcome the pain and trauma. A few years later Jennifer Syme got into a car accident and passed away, leaving Keanu Reeves all alone with a broken heart. He hasn’t been publicly dating anyone ever since. Well, it’s all changed now!
Reeves and Grant attended the Los Angeles County Museum of Art + Film Gala and made the sweetest gesture ever – held hands in public! It’s simple, lovely, and totally straightforward, that’s why the whole Internet was blown to smithereens when the first photos emerged.
Another thing that took everyone by surprise was the fact that the lady was well over 25. I don’t want to point fingers or anything, but it is a bit of a tendency for mature male Hollywood stars to date and marry younger women. And here’s Keanu Reeves, one of the most genuine and kind-hearted actors we’ve ever seen, dating a woman that just seems so age-appropriate for the lack of a better word. Keanu Reeves may look young, but the man is 55 years old!
The two of them have been friends for a long time, but we had no idea it was more than that! Well, they have been dating for a few years already and it seems lots of people knew about it, apart from the fans, of course. Reeves and Grant are also partners and have worked on a book called Shadows together – Keanu Reeves was the author, while Alexandra made illustrations to go with it.
So who is she, the wonderful silver-haired Alexandra Grant? The lady is an accomplished artist and a known face in the LA art scene. Grant’s main inspiration is language and text, which she uses to create her own visual art pieces, merging words with paintings, videos, sculpture, and drawings. She’s known Reeves for around 8 years – ever since she collaborated with him, creating illustrations for his two books. She also travels a lot, holds teaching positions in prestigious institutions like Art Center College of Design in Pasadena from time to time, and even creates films occasionally!
The two of them are quickly becoming Hollywood’s biggest sweethearts and we can only wish them happiness and love, love, love!
