After Keanu Reeves and his longtime friend, Alexandra Grant, were spotted holding hands on the red carpet of a gala in Los Angeles this past weekend, internet observers rushed to the conclusion that they're now boyfriend girlfriend. Thy also think the silver-haired, 46-year-old old artist and philanthropist looks a lot like Helen Mirren, with several folks admitting they straight-up thought the 55-year-old Reeves was dating the 74-year-old actress at first glance. "That was very flattering on me, you know, because she's obviously lovely," Mirren said of Grant on Entertainment Tonight. "I do know Keanu very well. He did a film (The Devil's Advocate) with my husband (Taylor Hackford) and he is just the most adorable, lovely person. So she's a lucky girl and I'm sure that he's a lucky boy."
