Keanu Reeves, 55, hits red carpet with first girlfriend in DECADES

Keanu Reeves is one of Hollywood’s most-loved actors. For several decades, it’s seemed he hasn’t had a serious girlfriend and during his 35-year career, he has never been affectionate with a woman while on the red carpet. That was until this past weekend, when Reeves held hands with his business collaborator and long-time friend, Alexandra Grant, at the LACMA Art + Film Gala Presented by Gucci, in Los Angeles.

The actor, 55, and the artist, 46, did not let go of each other while posing for photographers and exchanged loving glances, proving they have nothing to hide.

The rumored couple had fun chatting with pals, 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 adds.

Keanu and Alexandra have previously collaborated on the books Ode To Happiness and Shadows, where Keanu wrote poetry and Alexandra provided visual arts for the volumes – first released in 2011 and the next five years later.

The two also have a publishing house called X Artists’ Books.

Grant is a Los Angeles-based artist and uses language and exchanges with other writers as a source of imagery in sculpture, painting, drawing, and video. She graduated from Swarthmore College

Keanu looked happy at last and proud to be seen with Alexandra, as he beamed while holding her hand. They have previously been spotted arm-in-arm leaving a sushi bar in LA, but this is their first red carpet appearance.
