Keanu Reeves, 58, says his last blissful moment was in bed ‘with my honey’ Alexandra Grant, 49: ‘We laughed and laughed and giggled’
Keanu Reeves, 58, has shed some light on his blossoming romance with his painter girlfriend Alexandra Grant, 49.
When asked to name his “last moment of bliss,” he shared People: ‘A few days ago with my sweetheart. We were in bed. We were connected.’
The John Wick star bubbled: “We laughed and laughed and giggled. Feel good. It was just really nice to be together.’
Alexandra and Keanu first met at a dinner party in 2009 and collaborated on two art books before officially hitting the red carpet in 2019.
However, in the intervening years, they have tended to guard their privacy and rarely discuss details of their relationship in public.

Alexandra found herself on the business side of an internet frenzy when she walked the red carpet with Keanu at the LACMA Art + Film Gala in early November 2019.
“I think everyone I knew called me in the first week of November, and that’s fascinating,” she said British Vogue a few months later.
When asked about the prospect of marriage in 2020, she said, “Love on every level is very important to my identity. How’s that dodging the question?’
She added: “I don’t believe isolation is the way to go. There is a period of isolation that I do as a painter, but I value the experience of relationships very much.’
By the time they officially hit the red carpet, they had been friends for about a decade and it was reported that Keanu wanted the romance out in the open.
They first worked together in 2011 on Keanu’s book Ode To Happiness, with Alexandra providing the illustrations. The project marked her first book as an artist and his first as a writer.
They collaborated again on the actor’s 2016 book Shadows, to which Alexandra again contributed the artwork.
She is his first known girlfriend since Jennifer Syme, who died in a car accident in 2001, less than four months after giving birth to her and Keanu’s stillborn baby.

Back in the day: In 2010, a photo surfaced of the Matrix star sitting gloomily on a park bench, resulting in the wildly viral ‘Sad Keanu’ meme
In 2010, a photo surfaced of the Matrix star sitting gloomily on a park bench, resulting in the wildly viral “Sad Keanu” meme.
When the meme took off, there was a lot of speculation that his facial expression was related to the crushing losses he had suffered over the past decade.
But in a 2021 interview on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Keanu said he actually looked abandoned in the photo because he was hungry.
“Man, I’m eating a sandwich!” said the movie star of the photo. ‘I thought. I had some things going on. I was hungry.’
