55-year-old actor Keanu Reeves provoked a wave of comments and reactions this weekend after going to the LACMA Art + Film Gala hand-in-hand with his old business colleague and artist Alexandra Grant.

Of course Keanu Reeves and his girlfriend Alexandra Grant look like a dope cyberpunk couple. It just makes sense. pic.twitter.com/qq1uFwPOEl— Jonah #SaveDaredevil (@jonahdrake47) November 5, 2019
Some Twitter users, however, were surprised by Reeves’ unusual choice of romantic partner, despite his high status among the world’s most prominent celebrities, hinting at Grant’s apparent nonconformity to Hollywood standards and her visible age.
I'm sorry but why does she look so old, I thought this was his mom.🤦🏻♀️— Suzy ❤ q.b. (@Suzy_qb_) November 5, 2019
Is it just me or does she look old enough to be his mother? 🤔— creαтιve мιѕғιт ♡ ɴιcĸy (@cre8tivemisfit_) November 5, 2019

She looks a bit... grandmotherish. But love is love and he's older than her.. some ppl just age fast!!— China/Lee (@ChinaLee_secret) November 5, 2019
But most concluded that it did not matter after all, as the couple, who have previously collaborated on two books together, appeared to be happy and enjoying each other’s company.
Who cares what she looks like? This photo says all anyone needs to know. He obviously likes everything about her looks. Love is beautiful, good for them. pic.twitter.com/nkxAfOGGTs— Femme (@FemCondition) November 5, 2019
