He has not had a serious girlfriend in decades it seems, and has never been affectionate with a woman while on the red carpet during his 35-year career. 

But that changed this weekend when Keanu Reeves held hands with and shot loving looks to his business collaborator Alexandra Grant when at the LACMA Art + Film Gala Presented By Gucci in Los Angeles.

In fact, the 55-year-old Matrix actor and the 46-year-old artist never let go of each other as they posed for dozens of photos in front of the international press proving they had nothing to hide.

Keanu looked proud to be with the woman who has captured his heart as he hit the event on Saturday.

The star beamed at her and held her hand as he walked past photographers and the press while heading into the museum.
