It’s not unusual for a middle-aged actor to hook up with a woman much more his junior.
Take Leonardo DiCaprio for example, someone who seems to phobic of women over 25, who in the light of the MeToo movement has found himself – and more importantly his dating choices – open to curled lip scrutiny.
But one man has recently gone against the grain. Keanu Reeves, Professional Good Guy and star of the John Wick and Matrix franchises, has been seen out and about on the red carpet a new girlfriend, who is, albeit younger, still in his age range.
And fans of the actor have come out in spades to applaud him.
Over the weekend 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.
Good for these two. We wish them all the best!
