Keanu Reeves recently did an unthinkable as he made a public appearance with his longtime business associate as well as girlfriend Alexandra Grant. The John Wick star was seen holding her hands on the red carpet at an event at LACMA on Nov. 2.
However, a misunderstanding took place when the pictures circulated as fans started thinking that he was dating Oscar-winning British actress Helen Mirren, 74. Both have the same natural silver color hair, have high cheekbones and very similar to their facial structures as well. The only difference is Alexandra is 46 and nearly 30 years junior of Helen.
Helen was excited that she was compared to Alexandra. “I saw that,” Helen said to Entertainment Tonight over the Twitter reaction. “That was very flattering on me, you know because she’s obviously lovely.”
Although Helen is no stranger to Keanu Reeves as her husband Taylor Hackford, had directed the actor in the 1997 film The Devil’s Advocate. “I do know Keanu very well. He did a film with my husband and he is just the most adorable, lovely person,” Helen shared. “So she’s a lucky girl and I’m sure that he’s a lucky boy.”
On the other hand, fans go gaga with Keanu’s official public appearance with Grant and they started tweeting on the sudden surprise by their favourite star.
“Keanu Reeves is dating a woman my age who kinda looks like Helen Mirren and I have never been more attracted to him,” a user named LaCure tweeted, while a man named Travon added, “Saw the photos and legit thought Keanu Reeves was dating Helen Mirren. Which I also would have supported.” A fan named Imani shared, “I wasn’t wearing my glasses at first and I legit thought he was dating Helen Mirren which I also would have been here for.”
