Jennifer Tilly Says Alexandra Grant And Keanu Reeves Have Been Dating 'For Years’
Jennifer Tilly said she was "shocked" over the fanfare following the news that Keanu Reeves and Alexandra Grant were an item -- because she's known for ages.
According to the actress, the loved-up pair have actually been dating “for years" right under our noses.
“I remember a couple of years ago, about a year and a half ago, [Alexandra] said, ‘Keanu Reeves is my boyfriend’ and I’m like, ‘Wait. What? What? What?’” Tilly, 61, said the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Red Dress Collection on Wednesday night.
“She was so cool I thought she was a lesbian.”
Following their red carpet debut in November at the Lacma Art + Film Gala, Reeves, 55, and Grant, 46, sent the internet into meltdown, with fans praising the star having an "age-appropriate" partner, as well as voicing their happiness for the popular 'Matrix' star.
Tilly continued, "It’s really astonishing to me how in the last five months, all of a sudden, she goes to an event with him and everybody goes insane, like, ‘It’s his new girlfriend,’ because she had gone to a lot of events with him.”
"It’s just suddenly surfaced that he’s been dating her for several years.”
Tilly -- best known for her role as Tiffany in 'Child's Play' -- praised the pairing, saying Grant is a "cool, elegant woman" and that the duo are perfect for each other as they're both "low key".
“I saw him at her last art opening, and he’s not, like, wanting the spotlight, because he’s a really low-key guy, too, and I think why everybody went crazy is that they’re sort of the perfect couple,” she said.
“I think everybody wishes that they had something like that. It’s not a razzle, dazzle Hollywood romance.”
She added, “[Keanu] is a really great guy, too, but he’s really lucky.”
As for whether or not the private pair will eventually tie the knot?
“I don’t know," she mused. "That doesn’t seem very hip and bohemian, does it? They’re artists. They’re just going to do what they do.”
