In a recent interview with People, Alexandra Grant, the talented artist and girlfriend of renowned actor Keanu Reeves, opened up about her relationship and the impact it has had on her life and career. Grant expressed her gratitude for meeting Reeves when she was already established in her career, highlighting the benefits of falling in love as an adult.
“The good news about falling in love as an adult is that I had built my own career by the time that my relationship had begun,” Grant shared. “I feel very confident in the relationship on the red carpet. I feel confident on it alone.”
Grant further explained how Reeves has been a source of inspiration and support in her creative journey. She described moments of frustration in her artistic process, comparing herself to a “Maserati stuck in traffic.” However, Reeves has been instrumental in helping her overcome such obstacles.
“What I love about Keanu and our exchange is that we’re pushing each other to build new roads,” she noted. “Seeing the other person’s problem-solving is inspiring, like, ‘Oh, well, okay, this one, that’s a cul-de-sac. How do I try this other thing?’”
She continued to express her admiration for Reeves, emphasizing his creativity, kindness, and hard work.
Grant also shared how her artistic work has evolved since she began dating Reeves. She recounted a studio visit from a high-level individual who remarked on the positive shift in her work, noting that it had become “happier.” Grant attributed this change to the happiness she has found in her relationship with Reeves.
Reeves and Grant’s romantic journey began in 2009 when they met at a dinner party. Their creative collaboration flourished in 2011 when they co-authored a book titled “Ode to Happiness,” with Reeves as the writer and Grant as the illustrator. The book was originally intended as a private gift but was eventually published at the urging of friends.
Their relationship became more publicly evident in 2019 when they attended several red carpet events together, including the MOCA Benefit and the Saint Laurent Men’s SS20 show. Despite rumors, the couple did not officially confirm their relationship at the time.
Grant candidly shared her perspective on the public’s reaction to their relationship, emphasizing the opportunity for positive change. She also hinted at her views on marriage, leaving room for the possibility in the future.
In a recent interview with People, Keanu Reeves fondly recalled moments of bliss spent with Grant, highlighting their deep connection and happiness together.
And in a heartwarming display of affection, Keanu Reeves sealed their love with a kiss on the red carpet at the 2023 MOCA Gala in Los Angeles in April 2023, reaffirming their strong bond and shared journey.
