Keanu Reeves Receives Criticism For ‘Dating A Mature Woman’ But He Stands By Partner Alexandra Grant


Actor Keanu Reeves, 59, is known to be one of Hollywood’s nicest guys. On top of being a movie star, in recent years, he’s also developed a reputation as “the internet’s boyfriend” due to how much netizens love him. There are many reasons that fans love Reeves — from the fact that he’s a bonafide action star whose filmography includes “The Matrix” and “John Wick” franchises, among other notable movies, to becoming the star of many popular memes. Reeves is simply one of Hollywood’s most beloved actors and an icon of the internet.

While Reeves is known for being one of Hollywood’s most beloved, friendly, and down-to-earth actors, he also has a dark past that is full of heartbreak. This included the loss of a daughter, who was stillborn, with his then-girlfriend Jennifer Syme before she herself passed away unexpectedly during a car accident, all within the space of about two years.

After taking time for himself to heal, the eligible bachelor then sought love and eventually fell in love with 50-year-old American visual artist Alexandra Grant. Overnight, the world became interested in the woman who stole Reeves’ heart. Notably, Reeves and Grant are a couple who are confident about showing the public their admiration. At the 2023 Museum of Contemporary Art Gala, Reeves and Grant had a very public display of affection on the red carpet, surprising many of their fans worldwide.

But alongside joy for the couple, the artist has been dealt an unfair amount of criticism too. Many comments have been sexist and ageist. However, despite the negativity that surrounded the couple, their love prevailed, and they have not shied away from expressing their love and affection for each other.

Reeves and Grant’s relationship first became public in November 2019, when they were photographed holding hands at a Los Angeles event, as reported by People Magazine. The couple had already been together for a few years but hadn’t gone public until then. Interest in Grant, who is an artist and philanthropist based in Los Angeles, grew quickly. According to The New York Times, the two met at a dinner party in 2009, and after that, they became business partners and friends.

They even collaborated on a 2011 book, “Ode to Happiness.” This led them to build a publishing house together, X Artists’ Books, which is described on their website as “a small publisher of thoughtful, high-quality, artist-centered books that fit within and between genres.”

In March 2020, Grant gave an interview with Vogue magazine. In it, she explained that many friends and acquaintances contacted her with questions about her relationship when she and Reeves first went public.

While it seems like they’re a good match, not everyone seems to think that Reeves and Grant’s relationship makes total sense, especially since Grant isn’t exactly a typical Hollywood girlfriend, as she herself admitted in the same interview.

“I’m a 6ft 1in woman with white hair,” she told the magazine. “You know, the idea of fitting in. If I wanted to look like Kim Kardashian, I would have to have surgery removing about a foot off my legs.”

But regardless of what people think of Reeves’s romance with Grant, it’s nice to see the actor in a happy relationship. After everything he’s been through, he deserves it.
