Keanu Reeves once had a romance with author and former “it” girl Amanda de Cadenet.
After Keanu was falsely rumored to have dated Sandra Bullock and Winona Ryder, the actor had a short-lived relationship with '90s media personality and "it" girl Amanda de Cadenet.
Amanda revealed that she and Keanu were indeed an item in her 2017 literary work, It’s Messy: Essays on Boys, Boobs, and Badass Women. Interestingly, she said Keanu’s “hardcore ethics” got in the way of their initially getting together.
"We met when I was two months pregnant, 19 years old, and married to another man [John Taylor]," Amanda wrote in her book, per People. "Within minutes of first laying eyes on [Keanu], I remember thinking, 'I wonder how many pregnant women have affairs?' I was surprised by my strong attraction to a man I had just met."
After Amanda’s divorce, the pair briefly dated in 1997.
Keanu began dating Jessica Syme in 1999.
Keanu went on to find love with fellow actor and personal assistant Jessica Syme in 1999.

The pair ended up going their separate ways in 2000. And just one year after Ava’s passing, Jessica died following a car accident in April 2001.
Keanu Reeves is now smitten with girlfriend Alexandra Grant.
