Keanu Reeves Stepped Out with His Girlfriend, And Fans Are Freaking Out
This marks the first time the “John Wick” star has gone public with a romance in years.
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.
Keanu Reeves is trending because he's decided to date a woman, artist Alexandra Grant, who is within his age bracket.
She is 46 and Keanu is 55.
It also says a lot about how women are treated that so many people are stunned that a woman over 40 wouldn't dye her hair. pic.twitter.com/zHHo2GMzbx

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.
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:
Are we ready to accept Male Super stars dating age appropriate women who are full of confidence?

ages aside, I'm in love with the Keanu and Alexandra Grant story because they've been friends for ages, have collaborated on photography, poetry, etc. over the years, and always talked v fondly about their respective careers.

SMDH at everyone claiming Keanu is dating someone "age appropriate" when he is over 500 years old, making him at least 454 years older than Alexandra Grant pic.twitter.com/C85MJP8p3b

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.
