The couple went public with their romance in November 2019, making their red carpet debut at the LACMA Art + Film Gala presented by Gucci in LA
Reeves and Grant have been friends for years and even collaborated on works together, such as Reeves’ 2011 book Ode to Happiness and 2016’s Shadowswhich was also written by Reeves with illustrations by Grant.
In February 2020, Grant’s friend, actress Jennifer Tilly, told Page Six that the couple had been dating for much longer than fans realized. “I remember a couple of years ago, about a year and a half ago, [Grant] said, ‘Keanu Reeves is my boyfriend,’ and I’m like, ‘Wait. What? What? What?’ Tilly, 63, said at the time.
Grant addressed her romance with Reeves for the first time in March 2020, opening up to Vogue about the attention she received once they went public with their relationship.
“I think every single person I knew called me in the first week of November, and that’s fascinating,” she said at the time. “But the question I’ve been asking in all of this is: ‘What is the opportunity for good?’ ,
When asked if marriage was something she could foresee for herself in the future, Grant said, “Over a glass of wine … I would love to tell you. 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.”
In December, Reeves talked about love on The Drew Barrymore Show after host Barrymore said “I’m not a fighter, I’m a lover.” He replied, “No, no, because if you’re a lover, you gotta be a fighter. … Because if you don’t fight for your love, what kind of love do you have.” Reeves then got out of his seat and laughed, joking that Barrymore got him “philosophical” about love.
