Keanu Reeves and Alexandra Grant originally met at a dinner party in 2009, according to New York Times T Magazine. The John Wick star and the artist went on to collaborate on two books together, 2011's Ode to Happiness and the 2016 series Shadows. The pair also co-founded the publisher X Artists' Books in 2017.
The duo attend the UNAIDS Gala during Art Basel 2016, but no one seemed to catch on at the time.
"It's really astonishing to me how in the last five months, all of a sudden, she goes to an event with him and everybody goes insane, like, 'It's his new girlfriend,' because she had gone to a lot of events with him," Alexandra's friend Jennifer Tilly told Page Six in February 2020. "It's just suddenly surfaced that he's been dating her for several years."
The couple attended a Saint Laurent fashion show in Malibu together and held hands in front of photographers, though their low-key outing still didn't make headlines...
Keanu and Alexandra's romantic relationship did not fully capture the interest of the public until they walked the red carpet hand-in-hand at the 2019 LACMA Art + Film Gala. Alexandra later shared that she never expected their first official appearance as a couple to go viral.
"I think every single person I knew called me in the first week of November, and that's fascinating," she recalled to Vogue in March 2020. "But the question I've been asking in all of this is: ‘What is the opportunity for good?'"
The couple only had eyes for each other when they attended the 2022 MOCA Gala in Los Angeles, which marked their first red carpet appearance in three years.
Keanu and Alexandra engaged in a rare moment of PDA, sharing a kiss on the red carpet when they attended the 2023 MOCA Gala April 15. Excellent!
Their public smooch came just after Keanu shared rare insight into their relationship, the Speed actor telling a sweet story after he was asked about his last moment of bliss.
"A couple of days ago with my honey," he recently told People. "We were in bed. We were connected. We were smiling and laughing and giggling. Feeling great. It was just really nice to be together."
