Keanu plays romantic lead with new girlfriend
ONLY a few months ago Keanu Reeves revealed he was lonely – but hadn’t given up hope of finding love.
Now it seems things are looking up for the 55-year-old actor after he went public with his first serious girlfriend in decades.
Matrix star Reeves arrived at a Los Angeles art and film gala at the weekend holding hands with 46-year-old artist Alexandra Grant.
His appearance with Miss Grant, who looked elegant in a navy blue beaded sleeveless gown, confirms rumours they are a couple after they were seen arm in arm leaving a sushi bar in Hollywood last month.
According to the New York Times, they have known each other since 2009 when they met at a dinner party and began collaborating on a book, Ode To Happiness.
They have a joint venture, X Artists’ Books, which produced titles that ‘wouldn’t fly at larger imprints.’
Last May Reeves, who has been linked to actresses Amanda de Cadenet, Claire Forlani and fellow Speed star Sandra Bullock down the years, was asked about his love life.
He replied: ‘Romantic love? You know, I’m the lonely guy. I don’t have anyone in my life.
‘But if it does occur, I would respect and love the other person; hopefully it’ll happen for me.’
