5th November 2019 – (Los Angeles) The introvert 55-year-old Keanu Reeves has been pictured with a new girlfriend, artist Alexandra Grant, 46, for the first time in years, with an uncharacteristically public display of affection at the 2019 LACMA Art and Film Gala, exchanging loving looks ahead of flashing cameras.
While it is unknown as to how long both of them have been together, they have appeared to have known each other for years since they worked on the books Ode To Happiness and Shadows, released in 2011 and 2016 respectively. Many have said that they were serious on the relationship. The two also started publishing house together, X Artists’ Books, in 2017. Keanu has remained single for decades and his past love interests included Amanda De Cadenet, Sandra Bullock and Claire Forlani. In the 1990s, he was traumatised after his then 28-year-old girlfriend, actress Jennifer Syme crashed her Jeep into some parked cars in Los Angeles in 2001.
In a 2006 interview with Parade magazine, Reeves said of Syme’s death: “Grief changes shape, but it never ends. People have a misconception that you can deal with it and say, ‘It’s gone, and I’m better’. They’re wrong. When the people you love are gone, you’re alone.”
