In a recent interview with “British Vogue”, Alexandra Grant got candid on her relationship with Keanu Reeves, and how the public reacted to their debut as a couple. “I think every single person I knew called me in the first week of November , and that’s fascinating,” she said during the interview. “But the question I’ve been asking in all of this is: ‘What is the opportunity for good?'” The incredibly talented LA-based artist also explained how her and Reeves have been friends for decades.
Grant and Reeves run a publishing house called X Artists’ Books together, and according to Grant’s best friend, Jennifer Tilly, the pair has been dating for years. “I remember a couple years ago, about a year and a half ago, [Alexandra] said, ‘Keanu Reeves is my boyfriend’ and I’m like, ‘Wait. What? What? What?” Tilly told “Page Six” during an interview in February. “It’s really astonishing to me how in the last five months, all of a sudden, she goes to an event with him and everybody goes insane, like, ‘It’s his new girlfriend,’ because she had gone to a lot of events with him.”
When asked if she saw the potential for marriage in her future, Grant gave an honest yet coy response. Over a glass of wine… I would love to tell you,” she stated with a laugh. “Love at every level is deeply important to my identity. How’s that for dodging the question? I do not believe that isolation is the way. There is a period of isolation that I do as a painter, but I deeply value the experience of being in relationships.”
Grant also opened up about her decision to stop dying her hair, and allowing her natural grey color to shine through. While she did explain that the decision was somewhat of a political statement, the choice was more so a personal one. “I am a huge believer in choice – whatever anyone wants to do to feel confident. We should all have more options as to what beauty is. There are billions of us.” Grant also added that she finds immense beauty in standing out.
“I’m a 6ft 1in woman with white hair,” Grant said confidently. “You know, the idea of fitting in… If I wanted to look like Kim Kardashian, I would have to have surgery removing about a foot off my legs.”
Grant also shared a sweet moment shared between her and Reeves, describing the first time that they published a book together. “The book was made as a surprise, by me, for Keanu, as a private gift,” explained Grant. “All our friends sitting in the room got the giggles when I gave it to him – they said, ‘Please publish it!’ So that’s how we got into publishing.”
