What a strange world we live in. One where people all over the world get sent into a tizzy because an older male Hollywood star starts dating a woman close to his age.

So that’s why Keanu Reeves recently made such a big splash when it was revealed that he has a new girlfriend…and one who is close to his age. Reeves is 55 and his new lady, Alexandra Grant, is…wait for it…46-years old.

The couple made their first public appearance together recently at the LACMA Art and Film Gala in Los Angeles. Reeves and Grant previously had a business relationship publishing books together and that has blossomed into a romance.

But a lot of folks are still mostly interested in the fact that Reeves isn’t dating a (very) young woman like a lot of 50-something male celebrities tend to do.

Grant is a visual artist and she owns her own art studio in Los Angeles. She and Reeves released two books together, Ode to Happiness and Shadows.

A source said,

“[They] started dating earlier this year, but have wanted to keep it quiet. Keanu wants to openly share his life with her. He is extremely happy and grateful to have Alex in his life.”

Good luck to this couple! We’re rooting for you!
