Subscriber active since. It also works, because both parties know exactly what to expect in terms of paparazzi photos and tabloid rumors. But celebs dating regular people, via real life meet-cutes, provides the Internet with the type of romance novel fodder that is not found when two stars unsurprisingly link up.
Keanu Reeves has a girlfriend, and our hearts are exploding with affection. And, because this isso too is online debate about who his girlfriend is, how old she is, and what those details all mean. Unlike many other Hollywood men his age, Reeves is dating an older woman — someone who seems to be roughly within his age range.
So, who is Alexandra Grant? Based on what I gleaned from her CVshe seems kind of awesome. She and Reeves co-founded an art-focused publishing press inand she also used her art to start a charity.
I want to be light in touch, but really here for a specific purpose. But what happened to him sucks and he deserves some happiness. We all do. But Grant is getting just as much attention, if not more, for being the age she is as for being in a relationship with Reeves. It seems that many people assumed at a glance that the artist was older than Reeves, because of her silver-haired appearance in the viral photos from the Los Angeles event. Their relationship going viral is a good moment for us all to unpack a bunch of built-in cultural assumptions at once. In reality, people of living genders start going gray in their 30s and are at least half-gray by the time they reach age This praise makes sense superficially.
Compare him with someone like Leonardo DiCaprio, who has been widely mocked for only dating women half his age. Regardless of Hollywood stigma and scrutiny that attach themselves to Grant, Keanu gets to retain his status as a dating fave.
On one hand, I am genuinely super happy for them. On the other hand The bar has got to rise. Looks like my crush Keanu is off the market but for some reason I fell in love with him even more. They prob have a deep magical connection that I hope for. Not that we would expect otherwise. Reeves continues to live his life out of the public eye, albeit with the curtain pulled back just a bit more than usual.
In the end, anything that makes Keanu happy makes most of his fans happy, which seems like a win for everyone. So cheers to the new couple — may they be excellent to one another.
