If you asked someone if they knew who Keanu Reeves was less than five years ago, most people would respond with something like "the guy for from The Matrix" or shockingly may not have known him at all. These last couple of years have put Reeves back on the Hollywood map, with his roles in John Wick, Toy Story 4, and the announcement of The Matrix 4, the Canadian actor is gaining the attention of a younger fanbase again. Fan's reactions to the reveal of Keanu Reeves's new girlfriend Alexandra Grant proves just how much they love him. 

Like his career, his romantic life (at least to the public eye) has been on a break for the past 15 years. The last time he was in a public relationship was back in 2006 with actress Claire Forlani. 

Last night, Reeves stepped onto the red carpet at the LACMA Art + Film Gala hand-in-hand with LA-based artist Alexandra Grant. While there was no official confirmation, the two did not shy away from getting as cozy as possible in the public eye. In addition to their cute linked hands the entire time, there were photos snapped of Grant resting her head on Reeves's shoulder and the two looking lovingly at one another.

Their relationship isn't completely random, the two have known each other for a few years and even work together. Reeves released an adult picture book series with Grant back in 2011 called, Ode To Happiness and Shadows. After that, the two founded a publishing house called X Artists' Books. 

Fans didn't hold back their excitement involving their relationship on Twitter once the red carpet pictures were released. Like one Twitter user put it, "The internet united for Keanu Reeves and Alexandra Grant." 

One fan even created a house using keyboard dashes in their tweet to show how much they respect the new couple. 

Other tweets included fans showing their support and making sure the couple knows they're rooting for them, "#KeanuReeves having such a lovely girlfriend is the breath of fresh air I didn't know I needed and I'm here for it! Cheering for them!" 

Fans also couldn't help but comment on how cool they looked as well, "Of course Keanu Reeves and his girlfriend Alexandra Grant look like a dope cyberpunk couple. It just makes sense."

Keanu Reeves is living the iconic comeback we all deserve.
