Keanu Reeves in rare appearance with girlfriend Alexandra Grant

Reclusive film star Keanu Reeves has made a rare red carpet appearance with his girlfriend, artist Alexandra Reid, sending fans on social media into a frenzy.

Reeves, 57, star of the John Wick franchise, among others, has been in a relationship with 49-year-old Grant for some years, although they only made it public in late 2019.

The couple guard their privacy carefully – understandably, given how the media treats celebrity couples – but made a relaxed appearance at the 2022 MOCA Gala in Los Angeles, spending time on the red carpet and being all smiles when posing for photographs.

Unsurprisingly, given how Reeves is often said to be the nicest man in Hollywood, the internet was all over the appearance, with fans expressing how they were excited to see him seemingly so happy with Grant and life in general.

Reeves and Grant first met more than a decade ago, when they collaborated on the picture book series Ode to Happiness and Shadows, where Grant illustrated Reeves’ poetry. At some point between then and November 2019 when they made their first public appearance together at the LACMA Art + Film Gala.

Fans are particularly pleased to see the humble Reeves happy is due to his tragic past. In 1999, his girlfriend Jennifer Syme miscarried in the late stages of pregnancy, then 18 months later Syme herself died in a traffic collision.
