Bizarrely enough, many mistook Grant-an artist and illustrator, who many are praising for letting her hair go gray and taking the daring step of not being 23-for none other than Dame Helen Mirren.
On Wednesday, Mirren hit the red carpet in New York City for the premiere of her new film, "The Good Liar". Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Mirren spoke about the confusion between her and Grant.
"She's a lucky girl", she told ET, "and I'm sure that he's a lucky boy". Mirren also praised Reeves, who worked on The Devil's Advocate with Mirren's husband, director Taylor Hackford: "He is just the most adorable, lovely person".
When asked about it at the NY premiere of her upcoming film The Good Liar, Mirren told Entertainment Tonight: "I saw that".
The John Wick star - whose daughter Ava was tragically stillborn in December 1999, just a month before his girlfriend Jennifer Syme died in a vehicle accident - hadn't been publicly seen with a partner for years, before the pair were photographed enjoying dinner together at Giorgio Baldi, a luxurious Italian hot spot, in Santa Monica, California, last month.
Actress Helen Mirren slammed Netflix at Cinema-Con 2019.
Though decades apart in age, she and L.A. artist Alexandra Grant could nearly be sisters - with the same silver hair, almond eyes and calm smiles - which was enough to trick some folks who glanced at buzzed-about red carpet photos of Reeves and his lady friend at a weekend event.
An insider told People magazine: "Keanu wants to openly share his life with her".
Keanu Reeves stars in a scene from "John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum".
Reeves and Grant are believed to have met in 2011 when they collaborated on Keanu's life-affirming picture book Ode to Happiness.
