Keanu Reeves debuted his new buzz cut hairstyle on Sunday before giving girlfriend Alexandra Grant a kiss goodbye as she dropped him back to his Berlin hotel to continue filming for The Matrix 4.

The actor, 56, appeared smitten as he tenderly smooched his 47-year-old partner following their weekend together at her rented home. 

Keanu gingerly ran his hand over his freshly-shaven head as he made his way to his accommodation, ahead of returning to the set of the sci-fi film.

The Hollywood star appeared relaxed as he exited the artist and philanthropist’s car before making his way around to the driver’s window to say goodbye.

Alexandra flashed a warm smile before sweetly blowing her beau a kiss farewell. 

The couple chatted briefly, before they waved goodbye to one another and Alexandra returned to her rented property, where Keanu stays every weekend during breaks from filming the highly anticipated movie. 

Keanu wrapped up warm in a black hoodie worn beneath a black blazer, teaming these with indigo jeans and tan lace-up boots.

The John Wick star had his hands fill as he carried his weekend essentials in a beige holdall and red tote bag.

Earlier on Sunday, the couple, who made their first red carpet appearance almost a year ago, headed out for a casual stroll. 

Keanu covered up his shaved head in a beanie cap, while his partner kept things casual in a cosy blue coat, black leggings and trainers. 

In June, Alexandra was seen spending time with Keanu and his co-stars Neil Patrick Harris and Carrie-Ann Moss as they shot scenes, months after production had ground to a halt amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.

The Matrix 4 will be released in 2021 and production began in early January with Lana Wachowski returning as co-writing and director, and while filming stopped in Berlin in March the stars were returning to the German capital in June.

When the new movie was announced, Lana said in a statement: ‘Many of the ideas Lilly and I explored 20 years ago about our reality are even more relevant now…

‘I’m very happy to have these characters back in my life and grateful for another chance to work with my brilliant friends.’ 

Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell co-wrote the Matrix 4 script alongside Wachowski. Keanu is again playing Neo with Carrie-Ann back as well.

The Matrix 4 will also also feature Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who’s best known to audiences as Black Manta in 2018’s Aquaman.

Ever since Reeves and Grant went public in November, there has been much speculation about when they first started dating.

Some publications said they had been romantic for only a few months but then in June, Jennifer Tilly told Page Six that they had been an item for ‘years’.

Ohio-born Grant is an artist and philanthropist, who has worked in the arts since graduating from Swarthmore College in 1994 with a BA in history and studio art.

The artist is known for her use of language and exchanges with writers as a source for imagery in her sculpture, painting, drawing, and video works.

She fostered her love for the spoken word as a child, after growing up around the world, living in Mexico, Spain and France. 

Alexandra and Keanu have a history that goes back years, first collaborating together on a grown-up’s picture book, Ode to Happiness, in 2011. 

The book was a success, sparking the poet-artist duo to create their second book together, Shadows, in 2016, with Grant photographing Reeves while he was filming John Wick.

Since then, the two have been spotted together at art galleries, book signings, posed for Vogue Spain and even travelled to Germany to work together.

Speaking of working together on their second book, Grant told W Magazine: ‘We can spend a lot of time debating. Like, A raspberry hue? And should it be darker? We can get obsessive.’

Shadows is compiled of dark silhouette images of Reeves taken by Grant and poetry written by the Matrix actor.

Grant told the Los Angeles Times of her collaborator: ‘No one can move the way he can. He’s a really extreme performer. That’s a huge piece of why those images are so interesting…

‘I knew that if I moved the camera as we danced together, as photographer and subject, we could create these wonderful optical illusions.’

The two founded publishing company X Artists’ Books in 2017, with a focus on ‘unusual collaborations’ and books that ‘don’t really have a place because they’re between genres’.
