Betrayals, a broken heart, a stillborn child: why the "sadest actor" Keanu Reeves did not start a family with any of the women he loved03.09.2022
Fans who in the 2000s covered rooms with posters of Neo from The Matrix and dreamed of marrying him now looked at their favorite actor with pity and hoped that someday he would be able to find his love. In the meantime, the actor was content with work and … wrote poetry.
The love of poetry became the basis on which the attraction between Alexandra Grant and Keanu Reeves was born. They met in 2009: both with their pains, with their past and with their hopes – unfulfilled and carefully kept.
Grant did not try to impress Reeves, for she herself was very impressed. He interested her primarily as a man of art, talent, the receptacle of a genius. She used Reeves’ poems to create her paintings and sculptures, and during this they became so close that they decided to do joint projects. Keanu, who, it would seem, no longer expected anything from this world and was in no hurry to make new acquaintances, was unusually surprised by the character and views of his new friend. She gave herself to creativity all without a trace – at that moment she ceased to be a woman and even a man. Keanu also always approached the work on the set with special trepidation. This devotion to art amazed and impressed the actor.
