Alexandra Grant looked beautiful alongside her boyfriend, Keanu Reeves on the red carpet. While the pair shared a special moment ahead of the event, some fans got distracted by his long-time girlfriend’s hair color.
Reeves attended the 2023 MOCA Gala on April 15 and had Grant on his arm as his date. While the “John Wick” star kept it simple and classic in a black suit and striped shirt, Grant wowed in a red floral printed sleeveless dress with a large flower on the chest. Reeves and Grant were walking the carpet and posing for pictures when they melted hearts during an affectionate moment when they stopped for a smooch.
However, on social media, some users dragged Grant for her gray hair as one person wrote, “Keanu is 58, she’s 50. She should just dye her hair.” Another person commented, “She’s a Mummy!!!!” and a third tweeted, “Grandma?” “I thought that was his grandma,” a fourth typed, and another shared, “Dude fell off. Dating a granny. ”

Despite the online comments about his partner’s looks, when the actor was asked when was the last time he felt bliss, he shared it was with Grant. “A couple of days ago with my honey. We were in bed. We were connected. We were smiling and laughing and giggling. Feeling great. It was just really nice to be together,” Keanu Reeves said.
While their rare outing took the public by surprise, Grant’s friend, Jennifer Tilly, said the couple has been dating for many years. “It’s really astonishing to me how in the last five months, all of a sudden, she goes to an event with him, and everybody goes insane, like, ‘It’s his new girlfriend,’ because she had gone to a lot of events with him. It’s just suddenly surfaced that he’s been dating her for several years,” Tilly said.

Grant is a Los Angeles-based artist and the daughter of two professors who ended a college professor herself. “I saw him at her last art opening, and he’s not, like, wanting the spotlight because he’s a really low-key guy, too, and I think why everybody went crazy is that they’re sort of the perfect couple. [Reeves] is a really great guy, too, but he’s really lucky,” Tilly added.
Before romance blossomed between Keanu Reeves and Alexandra Grant, the pair were friends and collaborated on the illustrations book “Ode to Happiness” in 2011. Following their collaboration, the couple founded the publishing house X Artists’ Books in 2017, the same year they made their first public appearance.
