According to Daily Mail, Reeves has not had a serious relationship in what seems to be close to a decade. During his 35 year career he has never been photographed showing affection with a woman on the red carpet.
"They were standing next to each other and laughing by themselves towards the beginning of the cocktail hour, and then even when they were standing talking to others, they still stood next to each other," the source reveals about their appearance at the LACMA event.
