Keanu Reeves surprised fans when he was spotted holding hands with artist Alexandra Grant over the weekend.
Grant, 46, was the actor’s red-carpet date at the LACMA Art + Film Gala presented by Gucci in Los Angeles on Saturday, Nov. 2. Reeves, 55, would not let go of Grant as their hands remained entwined while posing for red-carpet photos, as published in People yesterday, Nov. 4. Reeves was in an all-black suit and tie, while the silver-haired artist stunned in a Grecian-style midnight-blue gown.

While some news outlets have claimed the public display of affection as confirmation of a relationship, Reeves and Grant have yet to confirm that they are a couple.
In October, the two were spotted having dinner at an Italian restaurant in Santa Monica, California. They arrived together in the John Wick star’s Porsche and left together after a three-hour meal, reported People.
But what is certain is that they are longtime friends who have worked together. The Los Angeles artist illustrated for Reeves’ 2011 book Ode to Happiness and the 2016 book Shadows. In 2017, they founded X Artists’ Books, which publishes “high-quality, artist-centered books,” as per its website.

Grant has staged exhibits in galleries across the United States. According to her website, she has explored various art forms such as painting, drawing, sculpture, film and photography.
She supports fellow artists too through her own endeavor, the grantLOVE project, which “produces and sells original artworks and editions to benefit artist projects and arts non-profits,” according to its Instagram account.
She also happens to officiate weddings—last August, she shared on her Instagram that she conducted the wedding ceremony of her friends.
Reeves has been notoriously private about his relationships and has been linked to director Sofia Coppola and actress Claire Forlani. His most public relationship was with late actress Jennifer Syme, with whom he had a stillborn child.
