Alexandra Grant and Keanu Reeves met 15 years ago. Over time, their acquaintance blossomed into love. For many months, their relationship was kept secret. Now, they are increasingly appearing in public.

Their paths crossed in 2009. There is likely no need to introduce Keanu Reeves. Alexandra Grant studied at Swarthmore College and earned a degree in art history. She is a painter, performer, and visual artist. She collaborated with the Hollywood star while preparing illustrations for his books "Ode to Happiness" and "Shadows". She also photographed the actor during the filming of "John Wick".

A deeper connection between Grant and Reeves only developed after several years of acquaintance. They first appeared together publicly in June 2019 at the presentation of the Saint Laurent collection. They quickly became a favourite Hollywood couple.

It’s tough not to like them. They are always smiling, warm, and open. They elicit immense sympathy from journalists, photographers, and viewers, who especially appreciate their naturalness. Over the past weekend, Alexandra Grant and Keanu Reeves were the guests of honour at the Grand Prix MotoGP Liqui Moly Motorrad motorcycle event in Germany. The photos show them waving a flag with the characteristic chequered pattern.

"She loves cooking him meals at home and they both love film and books. They actually have a little book club just the two of them where they read each other's favourites," we read in "US Weekly" magazine, which cited a friend of the actor.

For many years, Keanu Reeves did not appear in public with women, generally presenting himself alone or in a large group at events like film premieres. This was related to a traumatic love story. Reeves' partner, Jennifer Syme, gave birth to a stillborn child in 1999. Both took it hard, but the woman could not recover from this tragedy. She fell into a deep depression. Two years later, she died in a car accident.
