Movie star Keanu Reeves' significant other, Alexandra Grant, has been heavily criticized for her looks. She now regrets their decision to make their relationship public.
Actor Keanu Reeves met his girlfriend, Alexandra Grant, at a dinner party years ago. They secretly dated for several years before making their romance public.
From the beginning, everything was effortless. The pair were friends for a decade and even collaborated on two art books. Grant is a visual artist, and they run the publishing house X Artists' Book together.

Canadian actress Jennifer Tilly told Page Six in February 2020 that she was stunned when social media went abuzz after learning Reeves and Grant were a couple because she knew they had been dating for a long time.
"I remember a couple of years ago, about a year and a half ago, Grant said, 'Keanu Reeves is my boyfriend,' and I'm like, 'Wait. What? What? What? She was so cool I thought she was a lesbian," Tilly revealed.
She then mentioned that it was mind-boggling that it had only resurfaced that they had been an item for several years. Tilly stated Grant previously went to events with Reeves.
In June 2022, the duo made a red-carpet appearance at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) Gala 2022 at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA in Los Angeles. While posing for photographs, the couple lovingly held hands while glaring into each other's eyes.

Reeves sported a navy blue suit while his girlfriend opted for a red dress. The lovebirds first made their red-carpet debut as a couple in November 2019 at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA Art) and Film Gala.
Reports state that "The Matrix" star wanted the relationship to be out in the open. Social media users quickly commented on the duo's relationship status on People's YouTube channel.
While a third user complimented Grant on her appearance, the person stated, "She looks so beautiful yet so much older than him!"
Another user said, "I thought this was his mom," while one individual said the pair make a great couple and wishes them well.
Most of the fan comments from Twitter had a similar idea, pointing out that Grant looks more like Reeves' mother than his girlfriend. Some expressed shock that she was his romantic partner.

In March 2020, Grant opened up to British Vogue about the attention she received once news made headlines about her relationship with the "John Wick" star, saying:
"I think every single person I knew called me in the first week of November, and that's fascinating. But the question I've been asking in all of this is, ‘What is the opportunity for good?’"
She then highlighted fitting in as a romantic partner for Reeves, stating she is a 6-foot-tall woman with white hair. "If I wanted to look like Kim Kardashian, I would have to have the surgery removing about a foot off my legs," Grant joked.

In December 2019, the Ohio native spoke candidly about her natural approach to beauty, revealing that in her early 20s, she went gray prematurely. Grant said that after that; she dyed her hair with different colors until she could not keep up with the toxicity of dyes anymore:
"In my 30s, I let my hair turn ‘blonde.’ I love and support that every woman can choose how she wants to look at every age."
Apart from embracing her beauty as she ages, Grant has reportedly made a good impact in her boyfriend's life, according to Reeves' mother, Patricia Taylor. Taylor highly approves of Grant being in her son's life.
Closer Weekly reported in February 2020 that the costume designer has noticed that her child is more optimistic about life since dating his longtime girlfriend. An insider revealed to the outlet:
"What Patricia loves most about Alexandra is her caring nature and the fact that she's with Keanu for who he is rather than his fame and money."

The source added that the mother of three had seen a significant change in her son since he started dating the "Taking Lena Home" star, "he's more positive about life. Seeing her son so happy makes her happy!" said the insider.
Grant and Taylor also get along well. The British native instantly warmed up to her son's girlfriend after meeting her for the first time, said the insider. The two women reportedly have many things in common, including their passion for the arts, another source told Life & Style Weekly.
Reeves is "extremely close" with his mother, and the three of them often meet up for lunch or dinner. When the couple is not spending time with Taylor, they enjoy candlelit dinners, motorcycle rides, and secret vacations, another insider revealed, adding they are "practically inseparable."

Reeves has found happiness again after spending years in sadness following the death of his then-girlfriend, actress Jennifer Syme whom he started dating in 1998. Syme had fallen pregnant with the couple's first child, daughter Ava.
However, six months into the pregnancy, Reeves and Syme's world came crashing when they learned their unborn child had died in the womb. Per The Mirror, she was delivered on Christmas Eve, and Syme suffered post-natal depression simultaneously.
The overwhelming grief became unbearable for Reeves and Syme, who later split. But it has been stated that they were working on rekindling their romance when Syme tragically died in a car accident in 2001.

The "Lost Highway" star was pronounced dead at the scene at age 28. She was on her way to a party at Marilyn Manson's house. Heartstricken; Reeves was one of the pallbearers as she was buried beside their daughter Ava.
Since then, the Hollywood A-lister struggled to settle down, living from hotel to hotel. But he finally managed to purchase a home in the Hollywood Hills and has found love again with Grant, who was asked whether marriage was on the cards for them.
She responded, "Over a glass of wine, I would love to tell you. Love at every level is deeply important to my identity. How's that for dodging the question? While stating that she values the experience of being in relationships.
