Keanu Reeves may be the most beloved of male celebrities in the world at the moment.
He’s not known for being predatory, a jerk on set, or rude to fans. In fact, he’s known for going out of his way to make fans happy! He’s appeared in some of the most popular franchises of all time, makes fun of himself in less popular movies, can play an action hero and a romantic lead, and is currently growing a very decent beard.
The world loves Keanu. That’s why the world has been wondering for so long who Keanu is dating. Keanu Reeves hasn’t appeared in public with a girlfriend in a really long time.
Memes of Reeves looking sad have popped up over the years, and it was easy to imagine the man was languishing in loneliness.
On Monday, Keanu Reeves was suddenly out with his girlfriend, Alexandra Grant, at the LACMA Art + Film Gala presented by Gucci in Los Angeles. People lost their minds—because Grant is only nine years younger than Keanu Reeves.
I’m here for this. Another reason to love Keanu. Age appropriate GF? Because he’s a secure man. https://t.co/A3htoxCVBR

That’s right, the standards for men in Hollywood are so low, that a woman who is less than a decade younger than her famous boyfriend is considered a bizarre anomaly. The two have known each other for a long time, and have collaborated on a number of projects, according to People, including X Artists’ Books, a publishing house for art books, which Reeves has made several of with Grant.
Now, Grant is a beautiful woman, but she doesn’t seem to be trying to look younger than she is, which is making people wig out even more. Grey hair? No botox? Give Reeves a standing ovation!
This is why Keanu is a man and Leo is a boy https://t.co/wPQGrGKCfK

But, though we feel joy in our hearts for Reeves (his happiness is ours), it simply must be said that nine years younger is not actually THE SAME AGE.
Cool to know that if I start dating a 37 year old man society will consider us the same age.

I personally want nothing more than to know Reeves is happy and safe, with his beloved by his side.
Keanu Reeves’ happiness is the only thing everyone can agree upon

But let’s acknowledge that she is, in fact, almost a decade younger, not several decades older, and Hollywood has warped our perception of youth in men and women.
Saw the photos and legit thought Keanu Reeves was dating Helen Mirren. Which I also would have supported. pic.twitter.com/rYoC9nCLzZ

Alexandra Grant is here to remind us women are still hot as they get older, just like *some* guys.
And she’s dating Keanu Reeves, bitches.
