Keanu Reeves has gone public with a girlfriend for the first time in decades.
The John Wick legend hasn’t been known to schmooze on the red carpet with a better half over the course of his 35-five-career, choosing it to go alone – if that.
However that all changed over the weekend when Reeves took to the LACMA Art + Film Gala Presented by Gucci with business collaborator Alexandra Grant in Los Angeles.
The actor, 55, and the artist, 46, were more than happy to pose for photos hand-in-hand, as they exchanged heartfelt glances to each other.

Inside the event, the couple had fun catching up with friends, with an insider telling ET: “During the cocktail hour, Keanu was spotted with Alexandra and another female friend catching up and chatting.
“At one point, Alexandra handed a phone to the female friend and asked her to take a photo of the couple.’
“They were smiling and having a good time, and immediately after taking the photo, Will Ferrell spotted Keanu and rushed over to say hello, bringing with him a small group that included his wife, Viveca Paulin-Ferrell,” the witness added.
I don’t know why I’m so happy Keanu Reeves has a girlfriend (who is age appropriate no less). I don’t know this man personally. But what happened to him sucks and he deserves some happiness.— 🍁Imani Gandied Yams🍁 (@AngryBlackLady) 5 November 2019
We all do. 😭😭
In the late 90s Reeves dated Jennifer Syme. The relationship sadly suffered following the devastating stillbirth of their daughter Ava on Christmas Eve 1999.
Two years later, on April 1, 2001, Syme was driven home from a party at Marilyn Manson’s home by a guest. Shortly after, she drove her Jeep Grand Cherokee presumably back to the party and crashed into a row of parked cars dying instantly. She was just 28.
It’s good to see Reeves at home with his new partner.
