Keanu Reeves’ complicated love life from A-list romances to tragedy

Keanu Reeves’ complicated love life from A-list romances to tragedy

November 5, 2019

The Matrix Actor Keanu Reeves has finally broken his trend of avoiding public displays of affection over his 35-year-long career.

The legendary actor, 55, made a statement by going public with his first girlfriend, Alexandra Grant, in decades and they put on an amorous display at the LACMA Art + Film Gala By Gucci, in Los Angeles over the weekend.

It appears things are serious as the actor has never been known to be cosy with any woman on the red carpet before in his career.

While the star has been notoriously private about his dating timeline, what is known is that his romances have included A-list actors, burgeoning directors, and a heart-wrenching tragedy.

We take a look at Keanu's complicated love life and rumoured romances…

Jill Schoelen

The actor dated Jill Schoelen in the 80s after meeting during filming for 1986 film Babes in Toyland.

According to reports, the duo continued their romance off screen and dated for three years before calling it quits.

The actress then moved on to another emerging heart-throb, Brad Pitt, and they were engaged for three months.

Sandra Bullock

Reeves and Bullock first met when they were cast in the iconic 1994 action film Speed and went on to form one of Hollywood's most beloved friendships.

The duo had an undeniable on-screen chemistry and rumours of a suspected romance were rife.

During separate interviews with Ellen DeGeneres, Reeves and Bullock previously revealed they had crushes on each other while filming the 1994 movie.

Sandra opened up on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and said that while she had a crush on Keanu during filming, it never went anywhere.

"She obviously didn’t know I had a crush on her either," Reeves told DeGeneres.

Jennifer Syme

Keanu dated budding Hollywood production assistant Jennifer Syme in the 90s and while it seemed to be his most significant relationship, it ended in tragedy.

The couple fell in love instantly in 1999 and quickly became pregnant with their first child. Sadly, the couple suffered a tragedy when their daughter Ava was stillborn at eight months in 1999.

Their romance couldn't survive the grief so they remained friends following the split.

Tragedy struck again when Jennifer died in a car accident two years later in 2001 just one day after she reportedly had brunch with Reeves.

Amanda de Cadenet

Famous 90s wild child Amanda de Cadenet revealed her romantic pursuit of the Hollywood star in her book It's Messy: Essays on Boys, Boobs and Badass women.

The two appeared to date publicly, but it was short lived.

Amanda wrote: "We met when I was two months pregnant, 19 years old, and married to another man.

"Within minutes of first laying eyes on him, I remember thinking, ‘I wonder how many pregnant women have affairs?’ I was surprised by my strong attraction to a man I had just met.”

Amanda said that Keanu initially turned her down as he was a “man with hard-core ethics,” but they went on a date after she got divorced.

Claire Forlani

According to reports, Reeves dated Forlani on and off from 2003 to 2006, however Keanu never confirmed the speculation and even shot down rumours in 2006 telling New York Daily News that they were just "good friends".

One rumour is that they broke up after Reeves proposed to the Meet Joe Black actress.

While the A lister was previously linked to these stars, he never made a public statement on his status.

Keanu's love life has certainly been a complicated one filled with heartbreak, tragedy and stardom.

During an interview with Esquire in 2017, the actor said that he’s missed his chance to start a family of his own.

He said: "I’m too … it’s too late. It’s over."

It's been a busy year for Keanu, following the news he will star in a fourth Matrix film, a third installment of John Wick, as well as playing a character in Toy Story 4.

The star's latest romance with Alexandra come after the pair worked together on books Ode To Happiness and Shadows.

Completely inseparable, Keanu proudly showed off his new girlfriend when they recently took their romance to the next level by going red carpet official.
