Keanu Reeves, 55, is (probably) dating artist and regular person Alexandra Grant, 46, and fans can't quite handle it.

Reeves, wearing a very John Wick-like black suit, and Grant recently attended the LACMA Art and Film Gala in Los Angeles and paused on the red carpet for photos that made it clear they were together that night, anyway.

Grant and Reeves have collaborated on non-film projects over the years, including books the actor wrote and co-wrote in 2011 and 2016—Grant was the illustrator.

Page Six reports the pair founded X Artists' Books together two years ago.

Photos of Reeves and Grant produced some ageist comments on social media due to Grant's prematurely gray hair, but most of the tweets were pretty positive:

Keanu Reeves is one of the more secretive yet beloved celebs in Hollywood. Part of that love is from sympathy—his last known major relationship was in the 1990s, with Jennifer Syme. The pair ultimately separated after their child was stillborn, then Symes died in a tragic auto accident.

That alone makes it easy to agree with those who say yes, dammit, this is one guy who deserves some happiness. Fame and money are great, but don't climb in bed with you at night.
