As we learned, Keanu Reeves is officially dating a lady. And it’s all so age-appropriate, I can’t contain myself! Keanu made his coupled-up debut with Alexandra Grant this past weekend at the LACMA Art + Film gala. She’s an artist and illustrator, and they’ve partnered on books and a publishing house together. They’ve known each other and been close friends for years. No one really knows how long they’ve been together. But we know that Keanu wants us to know that he does have a special lady in his life. And now a source tells People Magazine that he’s ready to live his love out loud, in front of the world!
Keanu Reeves and artist Alexandra Grant are in a relationship — and are ready to be more public about it. Reeves, 55, and Grant, 46, attended the LACMA Art + Film Gala over the weekend, where they walked the carpet holding hands.
“Keanu wants to openly share his life with her,” a source tells PEOPLE. “He is extremely happy and grateful to have Alex in his life.”
The insider says the two, who have known each other for years, “started dating earlier this year, but have wanted to keep it quiet.”
Somehow, I love it even more knowing that they were friends for eight years before they started dating. We stan a respectful male-female friendship and artistic partnership which blossoms into romantic love over time. We also have to stan the fact that Keanu is willing to put himself out there with Alexandra and with his fans too – I’m sure there were some broken hearts, but Keanu’s truest fans just want him to be happy. And he’s letting us know that Alexandra makes him happy. It’s all so sweet. I could honestly watch this as some kind of “rom-com for adults.” BRB, writing the screenplay right now.

I don’t know him personally but I am so happy for him 😂
He really seems like such a thoroughly decent human being.
Good for him! He’s always seemed like such a decent, classy guy. Glad he’s happy.
I’m really pleased to see this. I think he’s a really good person and it warms my heart that he’s not a dirtbag with a 21 year old woman. He’s had a really hard past with a lot of heartache, I wish him a peaceful and kind future. I hope that they have a long and loving relationship together.
He seems like a good person, and i’m happy for him that he’s found someone to share his life with. Alexandra looks like a warm, joyful person. Just judging from the photos they look like they have “chemistry” and are at ease with each other. They are both lucky people to have found each other.
Take notes Brad Pitt
People who wish their celeb crush never date/marry because one day they’ll meet… well that’s creepy. Are they not dating either because they’re waiting on Keanu? So happy to see so such wide spread happiness for him being happy.
It’s also delusional. I mean, Jason Momoa married Lisa Bonet who he says he was obsessed with before he became famous, and then there is Katie and her childhood poster of Tom Cruise…maybe those stories aren’t helping. But, I am telling people, if you believe this is going to happen to you, you’re delusional, and if you are online posting hate at these women who are with “the internet’s bf”, you need an intervention from a mental health professional.
It’s gotten worse than creepy due to how such obsessive fans now link up online and actively work to smear & attack the new girlfriend all over the internet.
I’m already seeing this stirring towards this woman. At first I thought that Keanu’s most ardent fans probably skew older so maybe this foolishness won’t get much louder and Grant won’t see the top google results for her name turn into multiple claims that she’s an evil, grifting sociopath & other elaborate conspiracies…but then I remember the age of some of the women involved in the insanity that was directed at Cumberbatch’s wife.
And the craziest part is that the tear down defies logic. Why would a celeb fall for a stranger they’ve never known, who is actively attempting to hurt and berate someone they love? Do they think this will endear them to the celebrity?
Ha, I still remember all the craziness when Cumberbatch got married and how bitter his stans were. Scary.
I noticed a media narrative around them yesterday that was so disturbing – many articles were pretty much like “they were holding hands, but they haven’t confirmed a relationship so who knows?” Holding hands on the red carpet is as much confirmation as you’re gonna get from a private actor, and these news outlets know that. If he were holding hands with a 25-year-old model, they’d call them a couple. But because she’s a more mature woman, it’s like they can’t believe it.
I noticed that, too. Some outlets actually trying to spin it as they’re just good friends and business partners, nothing more. Keanu is not known for living his life out so we’re not going to get some PDA-filled pap stroll as “confirmation.” He doesn’t play that game, never has, which is one of the things I love about him.
She’s nine years younger than him! Is there that much of a stigma against beautiful silver hair? There’s lots of photos of them with a google search and in some she’s wearing her hair down which makes her look a lot younger. In all the photos, they look really happy together.
He really is one of the good ones, it shouldn’t be refreshing but it really is. I was kinda hoping for a Katie Holmes / Keanu Reeves hookup. She needs someone stable and with good morals. Wishful thinking on my part. So happy for Keanu. He deserves every happiness
I take all “source quotes” with a couple of pounds of salt, but the fact that Keanu has been openly taking Alexandra out to dinner and events(she was at Ali’s show with him)since the beginning of the year and holding hands at heavily covered shows and the Japan trip show this is more than a casual fling. For someone so guardedabout his private life it’s a massive tell. It’s also a sign he’s proud she’s by his side. He seems lighter somehow, like a man in love. It’s great.
If you don’t know much about Alexandra, check out her IG. Her warm personality really comes through. She spent much of her childhood in Mexico and France. In the Spring she’ll have a show in Marfa, an out-of-the-way artist colony in West Texas.
Marfa is SO AMAZING.
I love this relationship and am happy for him but I’m kinda surprised no on is questioning this woman’s age. I’m mainly bringing this up because that happens regularly on this site. This woman is at least in her 50’s. We’re comparing her to Helen Mirren who is 74. She is not 46.
She’s actually not older. I think it’s just the hair.
That’s a LOT of assumption you got going on there Kath. She’s 46 with gray hair. She would have no reason to lie about it. She also owes no explanation about how she looks.
It’s just her hair making you feel that way. If she dyed it blonde or brunette, she would 100% look like a 46 year old. Her face is very young looking. It’s literally just that she has gray hair.
I’m with Case. I think it’s just her hair colour. If she was brunette (and she doesn’t have to be) she kinda looks like she could be Sophie Hunter’s sister.
I completely disagree. Here face looks at least ten years older to me. I am not making the claim woman have to dye their hair. I think her hair is a beautiful color! Her face looks older. I am not saying that is a bad thing. I’m not saying that there’s anything wrong with him dating a 55 year old. I think this is an example of the ageism women face that the ages are misrepresented.
I have the same about of grey that she does and with it being ‘trendy’, I have trouble getting strangers to believe that I’m more than 35 (I’m 44).
@KATH…She’s the same age as Kate Beckinsale and YOUNGER than Jlo and Jennifer Aniston! 😳
In fairness Kate B can barely move her face these days with botox. And Jlo had also had a lot of minor tweaks over the years. Both appear more youthful also due to silky bouncy hair and bodies better than most 20 year olds
If you googled her seven or eight years ago before she was openly linked to Keanu, you’d find her age-born 1973. Why would she lie about her age then? And no, I don’t think she looks older than her age. And she’s not in a profession that requires tweaking and snipping. And kudos to a desirable celebrity man who sees beyond that.
Here’s AG with her mother in Paris, with her original dark hair.
I think she looks like a younger Lily Tomlin. Here she is in her 40s: http://www.lilytomlin.com/wordpress2/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/VERT-04Lily70.jpg
Add in white hair and they’re very similar.
We, as a society, have been conditioned to believe that no woman (particularly those in the public eye) lets her hair go gray until she is in her 60s or 70s. A woman with true silver hair can’t be in her 40s or 50s (unless it is obviously dyed, and even then she is often in her teens or 20s). Some women just don’t want to spend the time or money needed to cover gray hair. I don’t. A good hairstylist can make gray hair (like hers) look fantastic on any age.
Given the coloring of his beard, it’s likely that Keanu is mostly gray at this point. It amuses me that he colors his hair, but she does not.
I wish them joy and happiness.
I don’t think it’s just the hair. To me, her face looks much older than 46. She’s radiant and beautiful, I just don’t think she looks 46. Not that it matters.
She does look older no doubt but she’s also natural and we are not used to seeing that in Hollywood
This is what a woman who takes care of her skin (sun block + moisturizer) but does not have surgery or botox looks like. We have so normalized plastic surgery that seeing a woman on the red carpet or TV who hasn’t had work done is jarring.
I remember watching a PBS doc and someone made a comment about how some of the women really hadn’t pulled themselves together to be on TV. I said that we were seeing women who were and weren’t tenured professors. The tenured professors (who have job protection) did not have plastic surgery. All of the women who were still having to compete for jobs did.
ok y’all just the other day there was an article about how Katharine McPhee is looking old. This site has called out Sean Bean’s wife for lying about her age. What this is is a double standard because y’all like to see a man date an older/age appropriate woman. I am all for that. But I’m sorry, no. It’s not just the grey hair. I see a lot of women all the time. No one in my family has any cosmetic tweak. I’m 34 and there’s no way this woman is only 10 years older than me. She looks like my aunts, at least. I’m not trying to shame an older woman, but this is clearly a double standard.
Kath – I know her former fiancé. She’s 46. It’s fine to think she looks older, but she’s not.
Most of my friends are 45-55 and this woman looks exactly like a 46 year old to me. She has minimal wrinkles — look at her forehead! — and the skin on her neck is still smooth, which, believe me, starts to change around 50. I really do think the hair is throwing you off.
TBH in a NYTimes photo i saw she looked 46. These photos on the red carpet do something to wash her out/make her look older.
In fairness to me (who used to post as Kath), this opinion isn’t shared by me (Kath who lives in Australia). Ms Grant has a very young face. Plus speculating about people’s ages is gross.
She is only 46. Wearing hair up can make a person look a lot older. Look at Celine Dion. She looks a lot older with her hair up.
He seems like such a decent guy who’s had some tough times and I’m so happy for him. Go Keanu. Just don’t let this distract you from your very important work on the new Bill & Ted.
Ahh! I love this so much. I love Keanu and the fact that he is with an age appropriate woman who looks lovely, sweet, and not Hollywood-fake makes me love him even more! I approve of my boyfriend’s choice.
I know this is not PC but she looks sooo much older than her age. Yesterday I saw the story but did not click on it and I honestly thought he was in her 60s-70s. He is actually 9 YEARS older than her! She’s the same age as Kate Beckinsale! O_O. (Please don’t kill me for noticing this)
I think it’s ok to say if someone looks younger or older than his or her age. But I think we should not use Kate Beckinsale here. Kate has had good surgery and she looks in her 20s.
Kate Beckinsale? Who has been getting botox and fillers for YEARS?! Lol. Kate is NOT the measuring stick for what women – who DONT mess with their faces – should look like at 46.
Don’t only look at these pictures of them. These angles or lightning are not the best. There are plenty of pics out there where she looks 46 and absolutely stunning!
Yes, I’ve seen photos of her with her hair down and she looks a lot younger.
Just when I thought I couldn’t love him any more.
AHHHHHH I have been SO HAPPY for these two since this broke yesterday.
As a forever Keanu stan (he’s been my crush since Permanent Record, which came out when I was in high school) I was THRILLED to see him dating a woman who is my age, who is talented and accomplished in her own right, and who he had a long friendship with prior to it turning romantic.
I seem to recall an interview with him late last year or maybe early this year where he expressed a desire to finally find love again. Much like Prince Harry, his light was on! He’s had so much tragedy in his life, he is well known as basically the best guy in Hollywood, and he deserves this. Furthermore, so does Alexandra!
I LOVE these two together and wish them all the happiness in the world <3
God, Keanu Reeves is such a class act. This is such a heartwarming story, and it’s great to know he’s so happy.
N.B. All the ageing, desperately-hanging-onto-my-long-gone-youth lotharios in Hollywood and elsewhere: This is how it’s done.
we need more stories like this about adults being classy and mature in their relationships…*side eyes Miley Cyrus and all her messy high school lust-ships and drama
I am so happy for Keanu!!! He deserves love & happiness. I met him in the mid 90s, he is actually as humble and nice as he seems. I was young and giddy, excited to meet an actor I had loved for so many years. He was kind, gracious and so down to earth. I’m so pleased to see him with a lovely woman that is not 20 or 30 years younger than him. He seems like the type that values true connection and friendship in his relationships, and not having just a pretty young thing on his arm to keep him feeling relevant..like so many other men in Hollywood. He may be “the internets boyfriend” these days, but I’m 42 and I have loved him since the start. At 12 years old I might have cried at him having a gf, but as a grown up I am so incredibly happy is he is happy! He truly is a national treasure 😊
Do you think this woman is offended that the whole internet is like wow, good for Keanu, he doesn’t care about looks? Or do you think she’s like damn straight?
You know, I hope that she doesn’t care. Her not caring about how she rates is probably why he cares about her.
They are wonderful together. I hope that they are happy for a long time. I don’t think he’s looked this happy on a red carpet ever. His eyes are different when he is next to her. He looks like he is in love, and we see it in his eyes.
When Miley Cyrus was dating that young woman after leaving her husband, I saw love in the girl’s eyes, but not Miley’s. It’s funny how being an old fart can make you see that.
The Internet can say whatever their jealous hearts want. She’s prob too busy cuddling up with Keanu to read that cr@p anyway. You go, girl.
As longtime fans of Keanu know, he values his privacy very much.
For him to be so open of his personal relationship is not his usual m.o.
Be happy and healthy Keanu and Alexandra Grant.
I wish the press would give them some space.
And, stop referring to her as “his gf” Lordy, she is a fully formed adult and a person who has an adult life.
To everyone who finally has a good, kind relationship in their lives, I say congrats.
Life can turn quickly, be happy if you get the chance.
Btw, the pic with them on the beach, dressed in black, holding hands looking so very content, and gorgeous together..sigh, makes me happy. Awww! Keanu is in love, Yay!
This news just gives me a lovely warm case of the Contentments.
It’s just so wonderful for them both.
getting some serious “young Helen Mirren” vibes from Alexandra. Beautiful.
A normal, decent male is such a rare occurance that shows the quality of men that are out there.
Keanu has a secret side, like LeMaison Lalaurie in New Orleans secret side. I had to do a double take I thought he started dating Hellen Mirren.
That’s a weird analogy. The LaLaurie mansion And Keanu? Huh…
Sorry, you must have made a wrong turn. Ugossip.net is over thataway.
You don’t like the idea of him having a girlfriend, therefore he must be a secret serial killer?
Now if you’d come here claiming he secretly has NSFW John Wick belt skills and/or what he might have learned from Lana Wachowski’s wife the professional domina? That could have been a much more fun discussion 😉
I’m sorry but I’m 43 and have had zero work and don’t look anywhere near as old as her, and no I don’t just think it’s the hair, her face looks aged
So what? I think she’s beautiful, but that’s not the point. The point is that he loves her and finds her attractive, inside and out. I am so f****** tired of women tearing each other down. Do better please, let’s be kind.
weird flex but okay
OK, I would be happy to find out that they have secretly married.
Honestly, I hope they go off to a nice, lovely part of planet Earth and enjoy themselves without all the press sticking their noses in.
I wondered if that was why they have ‘come out’, he never used to draw attention to relationships but if he is making it official….
Keanu carries a certain sad vibe about him. Based on what I’ve read happened to him, I understand. Somethings never leave us. I am thrilled he’s found someone he cares about and who cares about him for him. I AM SAD he didn’t pick me of course!
All the very very best my fellow Canadian.
Damn, I’m 46. If I knew he would date age-appropriately, I would have worked harder ;-D
