Beloved actor Keanu Reeves is one of Hollywood's golden boys. Instead of flaunting girlfriend after girlfriend, or discussing his satisfaction with single life (like many others do), the actor has spoken candidly in the past about feeling lonely.
In fact, before his current relationship with artist Alexandra Grant, he hadn't appeared publicly with a girlfriend since the '90s.
Keanu and Alexandra were friends before taking their friendship to a full-fledged relationship. And, not like he needs the approval, but the internet has been thrilled for Keanu.
So, who is Keanu Reeves's girlfriend Alexandra Grant? We've got the details.
Who is Keanu Reeves's girlfriend Alexandra Grant?
Of course, after seeing the recent happy pictures of Keanu and Alexandra at the 2023 Museum of Contemporary Art Gala at the Geffen Contemporary on April 15, fans can't stop talking about the actor's main squeeze.
Alexandra is an L.A.-based artist who grew up in France, Mexico, and Spain. She's collaborated with celebrities before on her artwork, according to her website, including Keanu, Channing Hansen (the brother of singer Beck), and Michael Joyce (a former tennis player).
Some say that it's a bad idea to mix business and pleasure, but Alexandra and Keanu are proving that idea wrong. Keanu published a book in 2011 called Ode to Happiness, a picture book geared toward grown-ups, and Alexandra was the illustrator.
In 2016, Keanu had Alexandra serve as the illustrator for his next book: Shadows. The two then founded X Artists' Books together in 2017, a publishing house for books that don't exactly fit in with one particular genre.
According to People, the pair made their official debut as a couple in 2019 while attending the MOCA Benefit on May 19, 2019.
However, the outlet shares that Alexandra and Keanu started dating sometime around 2011, even though there's no telling when the couple first met.
After their May 2019 public debut, the couple attended other events that year including the Saint Laurent Mens Spring Summer 20 Show in June 2019 and the LACMA Art + Film Gala in November 2019.
As expected, the internet has been thrilled that Keanu has seemingly found lasting love once again, and he's received particular praise for dating someone who is age-appropriate. Alexandra is 50 years old, while Keanu is 58.
It seems that Alexandra and Keanu are happily in love. In March 2023, Keanu opened up to the publication about his most recent moment of bliss, which included his lady love:
"A couple of days ago with my honey," the actor told People. "We were in bed. We were connected. We were smiling, laughing, and giggling... Feeling great. It was just really nice to be together."
Keanu's ex-girlfriend Jennifer Syme died in a car accident.
The last woman Keanu was in a public relationship with was Jennifer Syme, a personal assistant and actress. The couple began dating in 1998 and Jennifer gave birth to a stillborn daughter named Ava Archer Syme-Reeves in 1999.
The couple soon broke up after the grief over the loss of their child became unbearable.
Jennifer died in a car accident in 2001 after leaving a party at Marilyn Manson's house. After a party guest drove her home, Jennifer decided to return to the party and she drove herself back. She ended up hitting several parked cars outside of the party, and she was ejected from the car and died instantaneously.
It was later discovered that Jennifer was under the influence at the time, and that she wasn't wearing her seatbelt.
Years later, Keanu spoke about his unending grief over Jenner and Ava's deaths. Understandably, Keanu became less involved in the public eye.
With that in mind, it's nice to see Keanu happy and thriving in a relationship. We'd like to wish Keanu and Alexandra all the best with their coupledom.
