Keanu Reeves and girlfriend Alexandra Grant have been dating 'for several years', reveals Jennifer Tilly
Actress Jennifer Tilly, who is a friend of Grant's, spoke about the couple while promoting the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Red Dress Collection
Keanu Reeves has been dating Alexandra Grant for way longer than we thought.
Speaking to Page Six Wednesday night, actress Jennifer Tilly, a friend of Grant's, spoke about the couple while promoting the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Red Dress Collection.
“I remember a couple of years ago, about a year and a half ago, [Grant] said, ‘Keanu Reeves is my boyfriend,’ and I’m like, ‘Wait. What? What? What?'” the 61-year-old told the outlet.
Reeves and Grant made headlines in November when they were first spotted walking the red carpet together at the LACMA Art + Film Gala.
“It’s really astonishing to me how in the last five months, all of a sudden, she goes to an event with him and everybody goes insane, like, ‘It’s his new girlfriend,'” Tilly said, noting that Grant “had gone to a lot of events with him [in the past]. It’s just suddenly surfaced that he’s been dating her for several years.”
Tilly, who met Grant at a dinner party years ago per the report, revealed that the artist has a lot in common with the John Wick star.
“I saw him at her last art opening, and he’s not, like, wanting the spotlight because he’s a really low-key guy, too, and I think why everybody went crazy is that they’re sort of the perfect couple,” Tilly continued. “I think everybody wishes that they had something like that. It’s not a dazzle, dazzle Hollywood romance.”
According to Tilly, Grant is a “cool, elegant woman” who is “very quiet, very low-key.”
“[Keanu] is a really great guy, too, but he’s really lucky,” she said.
In November a source reportedly told People how Reeves was finally ready to be more public about his relationship.
“Keanu wants to openly share his life with her,” a source said. “He is extremely happy and grateful to have Alex in his life.”
Reeves and Grant first collaborated on the actor’s 2011 book Ode to Happiness. They also worked together on the Matrix star's 2016 book Shadows, where Grant did the illustrations. And the following year, the pair founded a publishing house called X Artists’ Books.
