The funniest fan reactions to Keanu Reeves and his new girlfriend
It appears that the veritable sweetheart of the internet, Keanu Reeves, is officially off the market.
Reeves, who as well as being known for his acting chops à la The Matrix, has made a name for himself on account of the "Sad Keanu" memes, his refusal to touch women while posing for photographs, and his unequivocal "good guy" persona.
Certainly, in a post #MeToo world, where many once beloved Hollywood figures have been accused of sexual crimes, Reeves' presence is refreshing, despite the fact that upholding basic values of decency shouldn't be considered remarkable.
Keanu Reeves once apparently had a crush on his Speed co-star, Sandra Bullock...
The 55-year-old caused a social media storm this week by stepping out publicly with a purported girlfriend - something that he hasn't done in decades. Reeves attended the LACMA Art + Film Gala Presented By Gucci in Los Angeles with visual artist, Alexandra Grant, and the pair were seen holding hands.
The infamously private A-lister rarely speaks about his private relationships, making this an usual move. His last public girlfriend was with actress Jennifer Syme, who gave birth to their daughter Ava Archer Syme-Reeves in 1999, who was sadly stillborn.
The couple proceeded to split, and a few months later Syme passed away after the car she was driving collided with a row of parked cars.
Naturally, the people of Twitter had quite the reaction to this update on Reeves' love life, and you can check out the best tweets below:
Sure, you and I may be a little heartbroken, but I think we, and Twitter, can agree that Keanu's happiness is of the utmost importance.
