Keanu Reeves’ girlfriend Alexandra Grant remembered that “every single person I knew called me in the first week of November (2019)” when the couple took its relationship public.
Reeves, 55, and Grant, 47, have been close for years, having collaborated on the book, Ode to Happiness, in 2011 – which features drawings from the artist and words from the actor.
Speaking to fashion bible British Vogue, Grant confessed she and the John Wick star set tongues wagging after they were spotted holding hands while out in Hollywood, as the two made their first public appearance together.
“I think every single person I knew called me in the first week of November, and that’s fascinating,” she recalled. “But the question I’ve been asking in all of this is: ‘What is the opportunity for good?'”
Grant, an artist, added she has no desire “to look like Kim Kardashian” and hates “the idea of fitting in”. However, when asked about marriage, the star, who has been a bridesmaid seven times and officiated one wedding, replied: “Love at every level is deeply important to my identity. How’s that for dodging the question?”
She continued: “I do not believe that isolation is the way. There is a period of isolation that I do as a painter, but I deeply value the experience of being in relationships.”
