Now that Keanu Reeves and his girlfriend, Alexandra Grant, have officially become one of the sweetest couples in Hollywood, we thought it was time to learn a little more about the woman who has stolen the actor’s heart.
Unlike Keanu, 55, Alexandra isn’t necessarily an A-lister. With that, fans of the John Wick star have grown increasingly more curious about everything from his ladylove’s occupation to how the pair met. No worries, though! We’re going to break all of that down for you with the information below.
What does Alexandra do for a living?
According to her website, Alexandra is an L.A.-based artist. In fact, her “About” section even mentions Keanu. “She has collaborated with author Michael Joyce, actor Keanu Reeves, artist Channing Hansen, and the philosopher Hélène Cixous, amongst others,” the description reads.
“Having spent significant portions of her childhood and adolescence living in Mexico, France and Spain, some of the basic questions that fuel her practice are: How do the languages we speak and the images we see form how we think and exchange ideas? How can artists and writers work to create and influence culture in an increasingly technology-driven world?”
How did Alexandra and Keanu meet?
While Keanu and Alexandra have only recently gone public with their romance, they’ve actually known each other for a decade! That’s right, the couple met in 2009 and went on to form a solid business relationship. Alexandra illustrated two of Keanu’s books, Ode to Happiness and Shadows. Additionally, they established a publishing house together in 2017 called X Artists’ Books.
Are Alexandra and Keanu close in age?
Yes and no. Keanu and Alexandra, who is 46 years old, have a nine-year age gap between them. Considering a lot of other celebrity couples share a much larger discrepancy in years, the internet is praising Keanu for dating an “age-appropriate” woman. “I love that he has chosen to date a woman of substance, who, by the way, is very beautiful and creative. He is more of a man than one who thinks youth and curves and submissiveness is more attractive than graying hair, naturalness and being able to relate. It’s refreshing,” one person wrote on Twitter.
Do Alexandra and Keanu plan on getting married?
As smitten as they are, a walk down the aisle is the last thing on their minds! “Friends don’t think marriage is in the cards for Keanu. He’s already lost one love and can’t help but be afraid that it could happen again — though he’s working through these commitment issues,” a source exclusively tells Life & Style.
Here’s hoping Alexandra and Keanu go the distance! He’s lucky to have such a remarkable woman by his side.
