(TMU) — Keanu Reeves, one of the internet’s favorite people, recently appeared with his new girlfriend at the LACMA Art + Film Gala Presented By Gucci in Los Angeles. This is the first time that Reeves has brought a love interest out in public in decades, so we can probably reasonably infer that it must be serious.
His date to the event was Alexandra Grant, an artist that Reeves has worked with on various projects in the past. The couple posed for photos and held hands through most of the evening.
Of course Keanu Reeves and his girlfriend Alexandra Grant look like a dope cyberpunk couple. It just makes sense. pic.twitter.com/qq1uFwPOEl

One source told ET:
“During the cocktail hour, Keanu was spotted with Alexandra and another female friend catching up and chatting. At one point, Alexandra handed a phone to the female friend and asked her to take a photo of the couple. They were smiling and having a good time, and immediately after taking the photo, Will Ferrell spotted Keanu and rushed over to say hello, bringing with him a small group that included his wife, Viveca Paulin-Ferrell.”
Keanu and Alexandra have previously worked together on projects like the books Ode To Happiness and Shadows. These were projects that Reeves wrote poetry for while Alexandra provided visual art and illustrations.
While Alexandra Grant may be a new name to many of Keanu’s fans, the 45-year-old artist has had a very successful career in life thus far. The artist has had her work exhibited at prestigious locations including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), the Galerie Gradiva in Paris, and the Harris Lieberman Gallery in New York.
After seeing success on the book projects they released together, the pair went into business with one another. In 2017 the pair teamed up to found a publishing company called X Artists’ Books. It is said that the company will focus on “unusual collaborations” and books that “don’t really have a place because they’re between genres.”
