Helen Mirren’s Pretty Chuffed You Thought She Was Dating Keanu Reeves
Keanu Reeves stepped out on the carpet with presumably his new girlfriend, Alexandra Grant, as the two held hands at the LACMA Art + Film Gala in Los Angeles over the weekend.
The 55-year-old actor brought Grant, a 46-year-old artist and philanthropist, to the carpet and the pair looked smitten.
But the Internet was more shocked on first glace by Grant’s beautiful silver hair that looks very similar to 74-year-old Helen Mirren. And the reactions were priceless:
Saw the photos and legit thought Keanu Reeves was dating Helen Mirren. Which I also would have supported. pic.twitter.com/rYoC9nCLzZ

Y’all I’m not gonna lie, I didn’t have my glasses on the first time I saw it today and I thought Keanu Reeves was dating Helen Mirren.

And as it turns out, Helen is not made at ALL by us all thinking she was cosying up with Keanu!
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, she said of the Twitter commotion, “That was very flattering on me, you know, because she's obviously lovely.”
“I do know Keanu very well. He did a film with my husband and he is just the most adorable, lovely person,” Mirren said, adding, “So she's a lucky girl and I'm sure that he's a lucky boy.”
Mirren has been married to director Taylor Hackford for 22 years, with Hackford working with Reeves on the 1997 horror thriller The Devil's Advocate.
Hell, we wouldn’t be mad either if people confused us as Keanu’s new flame!
