Keanu Reeves hold hands with a mystery blonde: does Sad Keanu have a new girl?

Here are some photos of Keanu Reeves in West Hollywood on Monday night with an unidentified lady. Considering Keanu is SO private and I think most of us just want him to be happy and healthy, I wouldn’t make a big deal about him being seen in the company of a woman… except that he seems to trying to hold her hand. If you look closely at the one photo, Keanu is actually gently holding her pinkie. It’s a sweet, intimate gesture. Is this his new girlfriend perchance? Am I even allowed to ask that? I hope he does have a girlfriend. Sad Keanu needs some happiness in this life.

Speaking of Sad Keanu, he is currently promoting his new film Generation Um… (the ellipsis is part of the title, it’s not just me thinking as I’m writing). Generation Um… is one of those multi-storyline, interconnected films, which seem to be popping up a lot this year (Disconnect is another one). Keanu did an interview with Entertainment Tonight where he pontificates on generational differences and all of that, but around the 2-minute mark, the ET interviewer gives Keanu his own little “Sad Keanu” doll. Keanu handles it really well!

    Why must he fight the hotness? What a waste of good looks. Sigh.

    • Memory30 says:

      I was thinking the same thing he’s so hot 🙁

    • MrsB says:

      In my mind he will always be the Keanu from Speed. 🙂

      • Hautie says:

        Oh yea…. I loved Keanu in Speed. And Point Break too! Love that man with a haircut and shave.

        And if I come across either one of those movies on TV. I will stop in my tracks and watch it.

    • Belle says:

      Doesn’t matter how much he fights the hotness, it is there and always will beeeeee!!! (Yes, I was singing that last part, no idea why.)

      Keanu is one of my forever-ever-and-ever dongs and I would assist him in any way possible to ease him 🙂 Yep, will see his movies, show him the love on blogs, wash his underwear (after I personally remove them, of course)… help him dirty-up his shoes so they look nice and grungy, help him dirty up his pants (yaaaay!) so they also look nice and grungy… wash his pants (after I personally remove them), wash his hair (after sweaty-hot, dirty sex), etc., etc. Basically, I want to help him dirty stuff up… and then wash it. 🙂

      Wait… is that weird?

    • mk says:

      I kind of admire him for not being a shallow guy. I don’t think he’s looking for approval and that’s a total turn on for me.

    • serena says:

      +100 totally agree, but our Keanu seems shy so..

  2. JulieM says:

    I would really like to see this guy happy. He is so low keyed and nice. He deserves happiness. Hope he finds it.

    • clutch says:

      Would someone explain this “sad Keanu” thing? Why do guys call him that? Is he a depressive (clinically) or just never smiles for paps?

      I just watched the film with Charlize theron, Sweet November. This guy is the worlds most wooden actor, seriously

      • Chicagogurl says:

        It’s a meme. Pictures of him sad in the park, eating ice cream, walking around, on the red carpet. Google it, it’s hilarious. The pack of dogs and flying cat pic is my fave.

      • Belle says:

        Not just a meme… he seems to have had a lot of pain in his life.

        This article is old, but…,,20134185,00.html

        Basically, broken home, shitty father… struggled a great deal when losing his good friend, River Phoenix to a drug overdose… he and a girlfriend lost a baby (still born at 8 months), then the girlfriend (who he had separated from, but still remained close with) rolled her car and died. His sister (who he is very close with) battled leukemia… though I think she is still alive, I’m not positive.

        As mentioned in the article, it seems like he may be afraid of getting close to people… though he seems like a good guy who does deserve some happy times.

      • Mini-Me says:

        Thanks, Belle and tina. I hate the nickname “Sad Keanu” and I wish people wouldn’t use it. He’s had a lot of pain and suffering in his life and that nickname is not only insensitive, it goes on to make fun of his sadness.

    • tina says:

      Also, his girlfrend died in a carcrash some time after they had a stillborn babygirl.

    • Isabelle says:

      Well said. He seems authentic & kind.

  3. smee says:

    Well, at least she looks like she’s close to his age…….even if she’s wearing a wolf t-shirt.

    He’s an enigma. I love that he values his privacy, but I would like some information, please! I wonder if K has an alcohol issue – he looks red-faced and rough………

    • GoodCapon says:

      I think he just had one too many drinks.

      His skin is amazing though. I’ve always wondered whether it’s because of botox, a glorious skin regime, wonderful genetics or probably a combination of all.

      • Shauna says:

        I saw him at LAX about five years ago (we flew on the same plane, so technically I think we were dating). His skin was glorious and he was so low key and nice. He signed about fifty autographs, posed for pictures and mingled. I loooooove him.

    • j.eyre says:

      That was my first thought – she’s pretty and looks like they are close in age. I want him happy, there is always a place in my heart reserved for him… and, coincidentally, my bed.

    • Me Three says:

      I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by this woman! She’s not 20 years old, she’s close to his age, she’s not stick thin and she doesn’t appear to be a famewhore. Shock!

  4. Jenny says:

    The lady looks so much like Tilda Swinton in the first picture. Maybe he’s had a crush since filming Constantine and that’s why he’s sad Keanu.

  5. Yellowshaba says:

    Keanu is such a bad actor but I find his hobo like lifestyle so fascinating! He’s one person I want to know more about his life over anybody

  6. GoodCapon says:

    I think he’s so over the Sad Keanu phase, but he handled it well.

  7. Miss Kiki says:

    I have so much love for sad Keanu. He seems to be doing much better.

  8. Nareeman says:

    this is Autumn Macintosh, a long time friend (see the website; they have been rumored to be married in the past but they are probably just friends…Keanu is now rumored to be with Anita Hutton, his mum’s assistant, with whom he alledgedly had a relationship before….all inverifiable of course

  9. StormsMama says:

    I love him

    Am still hoping someday…he and I will makes babies…

    I’m sure my man and baby girl would totally understand ;-/

  10. nuzzybear says:

    She looks age-appropriate and vaguely British. I wish them both very happy.

  11. annabelle says:

    He is a forever love. So tender and broken and soulful and ohmygod I just want to hold him and make it all better.

    Best actor? No, obviously not. But there are a lot worse out there being forced upon us. He’s in some of my classic favs though, and damnit I’ll watch Point Break any time.

  12. madpoe says:

    I concur with Nareeman, this is Autumn Macintosh. The not girlfriend.

  13. Helvetica says:

    That isn’t holding hands–it’s holding her pinky.

    Either way though, I am jealous. I love Keanu. He is adorable.

  14. Maxine says:

    Love him, but he’s morphing into David Arquette, especially in that last pic.

  15. moon says:

    She looks older than him 🙁

    Keanu’s finally showing some signs of ageing though.

  16. Nanea says:

    Oh, Keanu!

    Forever Neo, Officer Jack Traven, and one half of cinema’s most handsome pair of brothers, the other being Don Pedro.

    He can still look so good if he wants to and I’m looking forward to his Tai Chi movie

  17. Agnes says:

    No more Sad Keanu! Yay! (Best meme ever.)

  18. lal says:

    You look beautiful Autumn, and I love the wolf shirt.

    As far as them ‘holding hands’, they have known each other for a long time. Besides, they were at Troubadour, drinking probably.

  20. Decloo says:

    OMG, did he have bad plastic surgery? The photo where he’s receiving the doll makes his face look weird and waxy. I’ll always love him. “Bill and Ted” still a classic.

  21. Victoria1 says:

    Forever dong! I would cheer him up in whatever way he wanted… He’s like a sad puppy. Sigh

  22. Isabelle says:

    Thanks for a Keanu update! Believe in Karma and it seems from the little gossip that leaks out, he has done good deeds for others. He deserves a bit of happiness. I’m a forever devoted Keanu fan 🙂

  23. Ashling says:

    I can’t believe he is almost 50. I’ve loved him since I was 14.

  24. says:

    Is any other so adored? Maybe Winona. We Gen-x-ers sure r loyal.

  25. ClaireNZ says:

    Will always have a special place in my heart for Keanu. He was so beautiful in My Own Private Idaho and Point Break. He is awesome

  26. Rory says:

    This woman looks totally like Keanu’s mother (young version of her). So, think he’ll marry her sooner or later. He finally deserve luck in his live. All the best to the both of them.

  27. P says:

    Best wishes to Keanu and his girlfriend.
