Keanu Reeves has sparked rumors that he is in a relationship, after walking hand-in-hand down the red carpet with artist and philanthropist Alexandra Grant at an event in Los Angeles.
“The Matrix” star, 55, has reportedly been friends with Grant, 46, since they met roughly a decade ago.
The pair, who were seen holding hands at the LACMA Art + Film Gala on Saturday, Nov. 2, have previously worked as business partners.
They collaborated on the books “Ode to Happiness” and “Shadows” in 2011 and 2016—with illustrations by Grant and text by Reeves.
Grant explores the use of text and language in works of various media—including painting, sculpture, drawing, film, and photography, according to her website.
Her work has been exhibited in a number of galleries in LA including the Honor Fraser Gallery and Night Gallery as well as the Galerie Lelong in New York and Paris and Harris Lieberman Gallery in New York City.
Saturday’s red carpet debut follows reports that Reeves had been growing close to the artist after they were photographed holding hands while leaving a sushi bar on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles in mid-October.
Reeves has had a busy year, appearing in the third installment of “John Wick” and voicing a part in “Toy Story 4.” He will also resume the character of Neo in the upcoming “The Matrix 4.”
Reeves has become something of a national treasure after fans spotted how he has mastered the art of posing with women in a respectful way.
The “Speed” star has maintained a notoriously private personal life and has avoided public displays of affection during his 35-year-long career.
His love life has also been marred by tragedy which Reeves has rarely spoken about in public.
During the 1990s, the actor dated girlfriend Jennifer Syme but the pair split in 2000 following the tragic birth of their stillborn baby, which reportedly put a strain on their relationship.
Syme was killed in a traffic collision in Los Angeles in 2001 after losing control of her jeep, sideswiping three parked cars, and then being thrown from the vehicle.
She was just 28 years old when she died and she and Reeves had reportedly maintained a close friendship, despite their split.
Reeves has been linked to a number of A-list movie stars in the past, including his “Speed” co-star Sandra Bullock, “Meet Joe Black” star Claire Forlani, and actresses China Chow and Jill Schoelen.
He is also said to have dated British photographer Amanda de Cadenet, however he has never publicly commented on any of the reported relationships.
A tweet showing images of Reeves posing with multiple women went viral earlier this year, with pictures showing his hands hovering either over women’s arms or waists.
