The 55-year-old actor's girlfriend may not be an Oscar-winner like Mirren, but she does have a few accolades of her own. "That was very flattering on me, you recognize, as a result of she's clearly lovely". Reeves has always kept his personal life away from the limelight and had been working with Grant professional since a while now.

"He's extremely happy and grateful to have Alex in his life".

Y'all I'm not gonna lie, I didn't have my glasses on the first time I observed it proper now and I assumed Keanu Reeves was relationship Helen Mirren. The actor was photographed on the red carpet with Alexandra Grant, a visual artist from LA, holding hands and being generally adorable.


The Internet went wild over the weekend when Keanu Reeves, who has not been publicly seen in a serious relationship for decades since the death of his ex-girlfriend Jennifer Syme in 2001, arrived at an art gala with a date. "He did a movie with my husband and he is fantastic the most lovely, lovely person", Helen published.

Innerestingly enough, Dame Helen happens to be out promoting a new film right now, a thriller with Sir Ian McKellen called The Good Liar, and ET caught up with her on the red carpet and asked about the noted resemblance. "So she's a lucky lady and I'm certain that he's a lucky boy".

Although the two women have quite a big age gap, as Grant is 46-years-old and Mirren is 74-years-old, they do have similar facial features so it's easy to see how you could confuse them at first glance.


There were even some who were convinced that Keanu Reeves was dating Helen Mirren. They started a publishing company, X Artists' Books, in 2017.

"I saw that", she said.

Mirren, who's now starring in HBO's Catherine the Great as the titular Russian ruler, spoke out about the confusion between herself and Grant on Wednesday, telling Entertainment Tonight, "That was very flattering on me, you know, because she's obviously lovely".
