Helen Mirren on being mistaken for Keanu Reeves' girlfriend

"He did a film with my husband and he is just the most adorable, lovely person", Mirren said. This is the reason that fans went into overdrive when they saw him holding hands with Alexandra Grant at the LACMA Art + Film Gala in Los Angeles.

Canadian actor Keanu Reeves set social media ablaze this week after arriving at the glamorous LACMA Art + Film Gala on Sunday hand-in-hand with his old business collaborator and artist Alexandra Grant.

Mirren, who's now starring in HBO's Catherine the Great as the titular Russian ruler, spoke out about the confusion between herself and Grant on Wednesday, telling Entertainment Tonight, "That was very flattering on me, you know, because she's obviously lovely". Alexandra helped the actor brood about the tragic past and supported him to heal through the agony.

Mirren has been married to director Taylor Hackford for 22 years now but has had a long-lasting friendship with Reeves which began on the set of her husband's 1997 horror thriller, "The Devil's Advocate".

"Y'all I'm not gonna lie, I didn't have my glasses on the first time I noticed it today and I thought Keanu Reeves was courting Helen Mirren", a person person tweeted.

They have also denied interfering with rescuers treating the student, or blocking the ambulance that took him to hospital. A spokesman for the Hospital Authority confirmed on Friday (Nov 8) that he was certified dead at 8.09am.

When asked about it at the NY premiere of her upcoming film The Good Liar, Mirren told Entertainment Tonight: "I saw that".

With her gray hair, the artist and philanthropist was mistaken by some on social media for another attractive, silver-haired woman in Hollywood: 74-year-old actress Helen Mirren.

Reeves, 55, has reportedly been dating Grant, 46, for about a year, and they have collaborated on two books - Ode To Happiness in 2011 and Shadows in 2016, with Reeves providing the text and Grant the illustrations.

They have a joint venture, X Artists' Books, which works to produce titles that "wouldn't fly at larger imprints".
