Keanu Reeves’ Love Life Proves That It’s Never Too Late to Find “The One”
Although he has been paired with a variety of women, the action star, Keanu Reeves, has always remained tight-lipped about his personal adventures. However, his love life has seemed to take a new turn as the Hollywood A-lister recently sparked a massive buzz about being all set to propose to his lady love, Alexandra Grant.
At Bright Side, we are curious about the actor’s romantic history and decided to learn more about the star’s leading ladies of the past and present.
1. Jill Schoelen — 1986
The former American actress, Jill Schoelen, met the superstar in 1986 during the time they starred in Babes in Toyland, and they went on to date for almost 3 years before splitting. Immediately after the breakup, the actress moved on to another emerging heart-throb, Brad Pitt, and they were engaged for 3 months.
2. Sofia Coppola — 1991
Reeves and the then-burgeoning filmmaker met while working with her father, Francis Ford Coppola, in Bram Stoker’s Dracula. The pair reportedly dated briefly before splitting up in 1992.
3. Amanda de Cadenet — 1997
Reeves was linked to the British actress and producer, Amanda de Cadenet, but it reportedly didn’t last long. The actress revealed that she first considered an affair with Reeves while she was still a teenager and pregnant with Duran Duran bassist John Taylor’s child. However, the actor refused to get involved with her then. Eventually, the duo dated after she divorced Taylor in 1997.
4. Jennifer Syme — 1998
Reeves and the American actress, Jennifer Syme, began dating in 1998, and soon after, they announced they were expecting their first child. Tragically, their daughter, Ava, was stillborn at 8 months in January 2000. Unfortunately, their relationship could not withstand the grief of losing their child, and they decided to split up weeks later, but remained on good terms.
Tragedy struck again when, on April 2, 2001, just one day after seeing Reeves for lunch, Syme lost control of her car and died in an accident.
5. China Chow — 2008
Reeves and China, the daughter of famed chef Michael Chow, had a short fling in 2008. During their time together, the couple traveled to the Mediterranean Sea, where they were spotted getting close. However, shortly after the trip, they called it quits.
6. Alexandra Grant — 2019
The 57-year-old actor is reportedly involved with 49-year-old Alexandra Grant, as they posed for photos holding hands at the LACMA Art + Film Gala in 2019. The pair have known each other for quite some time, having collaborated first in 2011 on Reeves’ book, Ode to Happiness. They worked together again in 2016 on his book, Shadows, which was also illustrated by Grant. They also founded a publishing house together, X Artists’ Books, in 2017.
And recently, a source shared exclusively that “Keanu isn’t hiding the fact that he’s going to propose to Alexandra, as he was spotted ring shopping in West Hollywood” and continues,” The 2 have been in relationships before, but this is by far the easiest. They just flow well together, they mesh perfectly.”
Grant seems to be a huge light in Reeves’ life. What are your thoughts on this charming couple? We’d love for you to share with us in the comments.
