Prepare for battle, The Internet! Some adult woman just stole your boyfriend, Keanu Reeves! What’s that now, you’re actually happy for him because all you ever really wanted was for him to be happy and if it couldn’t be with you, you’re glad he found someone to share his life with? That’s very mature of you, The Internet. I’m honestly shocked at how well you’re taking this. Good for you. #growth
If somehow you missed that collective swoon issued from The Internet, on Saturday, Keanu walked the red carpet of the LACMA Art + Film Gala with a date, 46-year-old artist Alexandra Grant. They posed together and were photographed holding hands so now Keanu, who is 55, is being heralded as an Age Appropriate King (though if he were in high school, he’d be headed for jail). That’s right, The Internet’s boyfriend (possibly) has a girlfriend, and the internet is being super supportive about it. The power Keanu has – it’s staggering.
According to People:
The pair smiled and posed for the cameras while on the red carpet as they held hands. The John Wick actor wore an all-black suit as he stood beside Grant, 46, who wore a midnight blue gown with a deep V-neck and silver flats.
The two have been friends and collaborators for years. Grant has previously worked with Reeves on his 2011 book Ode to Happiness. It was their first collaboration, which was followed by 2016’s Shadows, which was also written by Reeves with illustrations by Grant.
The pair has also founded X Artists’ Books, a publishing house which they established in 2017.
This isn’t the first time Keanu and Alexandra have been photographed being affectionate in public. According to Page Six:
Reeves and Grant also attended the Saint Laurent fashion show together in June, where they were seen holding hands.
It’s the first time in years that Reeves has gone public with a romance.
Here are some shots of the two of them that Twitter coughed up.

It seems like Keanu and Alexandra holding hands on a red carpet is their version doing whatever it is that Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson are doing.
I couldn't care less about Keanu Reeves but his girlfriend is lowkey looking back at the camera like "that's right, bitches" so I fully have to stan Miss Alexandra Grant pic.twitter.com/bKZOp7sTAu

While The Internet is being really chill about the whole thing now, Alexandra better not get too cocky or The Internet will start acting a fool. You can check out more shots of Keanu and Alexandra in the gallery below. And since we’re being very generous with points for dating a woman over 40, I’m going to give Keanu a few extra for dating a woman who’s taller than him in heels!
