Keanu Reeves and Alexandra Grant make rare public appearance at MOCA Gala
Keanu Reeves and his girlfriend, Alexandra Grant turned heads as they walked the red carpet at the Museum of Contemporary Art Gala in Los Angeles on Saturday. The couple, who has been together for over three years, shared a kiss and were seen laughing and smiling as they posed for photographs.
Reeves, 58, looked dapper in a navy suit with a striped tie, while Grant, 50, chose a bright-red, floor-length floral gown for the occasion. The couple has kept chiefly their relationship private and has had a professional partnership for years. They run the publishing house X Artists’ Books and have collaborated on Reeves’ poetry collections.
Although they went public with their relationship in 2019, the pair has been known to keep their personal life out of the spotlight. Speaking to Vogue in 2020, Grant revealed that she initially hesitated about going public with their relationship. “I think every single person I knew called me in the first week of November, and that’s fascinating,” she said. “But the question I’ve been asking in all of this is: ‘What is the opportunity for good?'”
Reeves, known for playing the cold-blooded assassin John Wick, opened up about his relationship with Grant in a recent interview with People magazine. “A couple of days ago with my honey,” he said when asked about his last moment of bliss. “We were in bed. We were connected. We were smiling and laughing and giggling. Feeling great. It was just really nice to be together.”
Their relationship started to make headlines in 2019 when they were seen holding hands at the Saint Laurent fashion show. Later that year, they made their first public appearance as a couple at the LACMA Art + Film Gala in Los Angeles.
Reeves has been notoriously private about his personal life but has been linked to several high-profile women throughout his career. He dated actress Jennifer Syme in the late ’90s, but their relationship ended after their child was stillborn. Syme tragically died in a car accident in 2001.
Since then, Reeves has kept his personal life out of the spotlight, but his relationship with Grant has become a rare exception. The couple has been seen out and about in Los Angeles and have attended several events, including the Oscars and the Independent Spirit Awards.
Grant, a visual artist, has had her work shown at the Museum of Contemporary Art, and the duo attended the museum’s annual gala together last year. They also co-founded the publishing house X Artists’ Books, which has published several poetry and art books.
The couple’s appearance at the Museum of Contemporary Art Gala on Saturday was a rare public display of affection, and fans of the actor were thrilled to see him so happy. Reeves has become somewhat of a cult hero in recent years, and his fans eagerly await news of his following projects.
Reeves has several movies in the works, including “The Matrix 4” and “John Wick: Chapter 4,” both of which are set to be released in 2022. He is also rumored to be reprising his role as Ted Logan in “Bill and Ted Face the Music,” which is set to be released later this year.
