Hollywood's most desirous, Keanu Reeves being no more a singularity is the heartbreak of the week. After years of posing alone for the fans, Reeves seems to have recently found a hand and romantic glances to share as he walks down the red carpet. What he is also doing is - breaking a million hearts. The 46-year-old artist and philanthropist, Alexandra Grant swooning the Matrix man, earned everyone's attention at LACMA Art + Film Gala, Los Angeles on Saturday reports The Guardian.
Grant made her public appearance in a navy blue dress and jewelry alongside the 55-year-old who was suited up in his signature all-black with caramel brown shoes. According to Entertainment Weekly, sources claim to have cherished the evening watching the duo make memories as they walked around in the event catching up with friends and getting photographed.
"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. It’s unclear if Ferrell and his wife already knew Alexandra or if Keanu introduced them, but they were seen chatting for several minutes before heading into the tented pavilion for dinner," said the source.
This Gucci presented event's keynote couple has walked the red carpet earlier in June 2016 reports Hollywood Life, where the pair was seen attending the UNAIDS Gala during Art Basel 2016 in Switzerland. However, the former appearance failed to draw a fair share of attention as did this week's occurrence, establishing Keanu no more being "self-partnered", a term coined by Emma Watson recently!
The actor in his Hollywood career of 35 years has never been witnessed bringing a date to such social meets. His last official relationship with Jennifer Syme ended tragically in a car crash resulting in her parting ways with the John Wick star for life. She found solace beside their eight-month stillborn daughter, Ava.
Overcoming the grief of losing people in life, Reeves has finally found a person of interest to comfort him. Reeves and Grant have reportedly been business partners and more importantly friends for a few years. Their pairing efforts can be seen in Ode to Happiness and Shadows published in 2011 and 2016 respectively with Reaves' words coupling Alex's illustrations summing a successful collaboration.
Speaking to Los Angeles Magazine about her partnered business with the actor, Grant said, "We really like [a] ‘can-do’ [attitude,]. Some people are kind of dreamers who have a lot of ideas but don’t like to get things done. I think we both like to have the idea and get it into the world."
